While the act itself may be 30 year old, the enforcement and the investigations relating to FCPA seem to have stepped-up in the recent past, with many large corporations being penalized for FCPA violations. Surprisingly, there are still a large number of people who are unaware of the act and its ramifications. Our resources, research papers and the whitepapers on the subject demystify the act and give an overview of the intent of the act, the enforcement of the act, the various provisions under the act and how it is applicable to various Indian companies.

FCPA and Mergers – Riskpro Play a significant role

What happens when a company walks away from a deal due to potential M&A issues. One of the highest-profile cases to date involves Titan Corp., whose 2003 deal with would-be buyer Lockheed Martin Corp. fell through when Lockheed discovered during due diligence that questionable payments had been made to foreign officials, and Titan failed to resolve the matter in a timely fashion. Penalties assessed against Titan totaled nearly $29 million — one of the largest fine ever slapped on a company in an FCPA case. With M&A activity on an upswing, especially in Asia, FCPA’s significance cannot be understated. FCPA as deal-breaker would cover the issues that go into dealing with FCPA issues in the M&A sphere.
