Foreign Corrupt Practices Act & Anti-Corruption

Allegations by short seller lead to corruption investigation of OSI systems

DOJ SEC FCPA

In a securities filing on Thursday, Feb. 1, California-based OSI Systems, Inc. revealed that the DOJ and SEC have launched investigations into its FCPA compliance and regarding trading by company employees in the OSI Systems securities. These investigations were spurred by a report issued in December 2016 by a short seller, Muddy Waters LLC, which accused OSI of paying bribes to win a major contract in Albania. OSI Systems has denied that allegation, and stated in its Form 8-K filing that it is cooperating with the government’s investigations.
