The Corporate Investigations List (January 2017)

The companies listed below are the subject of an ongoing and unresolved FCPA-related investigation.

The names are current through December 31, 2016.

(Since then, Mondelēz International, Inc. has resolved FCPA allegations with the SEC.)

All entries are based on disclosures in SEC filings or on other self disclosures by non-issuers.

This is the seventh consecutive quarter when we based the list only on SEC filings or public self disclosures by non-issuers.

Earlier lists had included some companies based on media reports. Because so many of those reports turned out to be false, we now include only companies that have made SEC or other self disclosures about pending investigations.

Some companies on the list have disclosed both DOJ and SEC investigations and a declination from only one of those agencies. We're assuming the agency for which a declination hasn't been disclosed is continuing its investigation.

The DOJ and SEC usually don't disclose the existence of FCPA investigations or comment on them. That means non-issuers (non-public companies) and issuers that have a pending investigation but haven't disclosed it, don't appear on our list.

This data is made available once again through the generous contribution of an anonymous volunteer researcher.

In addition to the 80 companies on the list, the researcher is tracking 107 others suspected to be the target of an ongoing FCPA investigation. Because those companies haven't made a public disclosure about an investigation, we've omitted them.

Does anyone know why VW is not on the list?

Only companies that have self disclosed an FCPA investigation appear on the list. Are you aware of an FCPA-related disclosure by VW?
January 9, 2017 | Registered CommenterRichard L. Cassin
Why isn't Stryker on list for failure to report adverse events...
Knee pain implant failure

Would it be possible for someone to add the year (years, if multiple) disclosed for each of these? It is interesting to see how long it takes for some of these entities to reach an agreement or to conclude their investigation? (i.e. HAL since 2010 or Walmart since 2011, etc.)

This is a list only of self-disclosed FCPA-related investigations. It doesn't cover any other adverse events.

Are all these 81 companies still under investigation?
