This recent post highlighted the net $147.5 million Foreign Corrupt Practices Act enforcement action against ABB concerning conduct in South Africa. In resolving the matter, ABB became the first company to resolve three separate FCPA enforcement actions. (See here).
This post highlights additional issues to consider from the enforcement action.
As highlighted in this prior post, in early 2017 it was reported that “ABB said it was cooperating with anti-fraud authorities in the United States and Britain and had reported past dealings with Monaco-based engineering and construction group Unaoil, including alleged improper payments to third parties.” This probe was seemingly dropped in mid-2020 (see here).
