SEC Charges Johnson & Johnson With Foreign Bribery; J&J to Pay $70 Million to Settle Cases Brought by SEC and Criminal Authorities
On April 7, 2011, the SEC announced that it charged Johnson and Johnson ("J&J") with violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") by bribing public doctors in several European countries and paying kickbacks to Iraq to illegally obtain business. Without admitting or denying the SEC's allegations, J&J has consented to the entry of a court order permanently enjoining it from future violations of future securities laws, to pay $38,227,826 in disgorgement and $10,438,490 in prejudgment interest, and to comply with certain undertakings regarding its FCPA compliance program. J&J voluntarily disclosed some of the violations by its employees and conducted a thorough internal investigation to determine the scope of the bribery and other violations, including proactive investigations in more than a dozen countries by both its internal auditors and outside counsel. J&J's internal investigation and its ongoing compliance programs were essential in gathering facts regarding the full extent of J&J's FCPA violations. In a related criminal proceeding, J&J agreed to pay an additional $21.4 million fine to settle the charged brought by the U.S. Department of Justice, and a resolution of a related investigation by the United Kingdom Serious Fraud Office is anticipated.
