After a wait of two years, a federal judge Wednesday granted final approval for IBM's settlement with the SEC of civil FCPA charges.
IBM said in an SEC filing this week that the DOJ has opened an FCPA investigation into transactions in Poland, Argentina, Bangladesh, and Ukraine. 'The DOJ is also seeking information regarding the company’s global FCPA compliance program and its public sector business,' IBM said.
