PEABODY, Mass., June 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world’s medical imaging and aviation security technology, announced today that it has reached agreements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Danish government resolving the previously disclosed FCPA investigation relating to payments made by the Company’s Danish subsidiary on behalf of certain of its distributors.
The Company self-reported the matter to the SEC, the DOJ, and the Danish government in 2011. It has since undertaken significant remedial measures, including enhancements to its compliance program as well as terminating the employment of certain employees of its Danish subsidiary and the relationships with the distributors involved in the transactions. As a result of the resolution, the Company and its Danish subsidiary will pay approximately $14.9 million in disgorgement, interest, and penalties. The amounts to be paid were previously reflected in the Company’s financial statements and will not impact its fiscal 2016 outlook.
Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, “We are pleased to have resolved the matter. The resolution emphasizes the importance of legal and ethical business conduct in all aspects of our business.”
