The Ripple Effect: Understanding Financial and Business Consequences of FCPA Scrutiny and Enforcement

Back in 1977, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act was enacted to prohibit the payment of bribes to foreign government officials to assist in gaining or retaining business.  Today, where and how your company is doing business may bring your employees and third parties into daily contact with foreign bureaucrats and put your FCPA compliance program to the test on a regular basis.  Despite your best efforts, your business practices may make you a target for FCPA investigations or enforcement.

Join us on Tuesday, June 17th at 2PM (EDT) when Mike Koehler, the FCPA Professor, will discuss why the financial and business impact of  FCPA investigations and scrutiny go way beyond  the reported settlement amounts.  In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why the settlement amounts in an FCPA enforcement action are often a relatively minor component of the overall financial consequences
  • How an FCPA investigation and subsequent enforcement has far greater business implications than just the settlement can (Market capitalization, cost of capital, M&A activity, lost/delayed opportunities, shareholder actions, etc.) 
  • How and why business managers need to understand the implications of FCPA compliance
  • How to build executive support for your FCPA program and budget
