Item 8.01               Other Events.

 

Following a report by a short seller, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) commenced an investigation into the Company’s compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).  The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California (DOJ) has also said it intends to request information regarding FCPA compliance matters.  The SEC and DOJ are also conducting an investigation of trading in the Company’s securities, and have subpoenaed information regarding trading by executives, directors and employees, as well as Company operations and disclosures in and around the time of certain trades.  In relation to the matters that are the subject of the trading-related investigation, the Company has taken action with respect to a senior-level employee.  At this time, the Company is unable to predict what, if any, action may be taken by the DOJ or SEC as a result of these investigations, or any penalties or remedial measures these agencies may seek. The Company places a high priority on compliance with its anti-corruption and securities trading policies, and is cooperating with each of the government investigations.
