Earlier today, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York filed a
criminal complaint against FalconStor Software, Inc. (“FalconStor”) alleging that the company
conspired to pay more than $300,000 in bribes to executives of J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A.
(“J.P. Morgan Chase”) to obtain over $12 million in electronic storage licencing contracts.
FalconStor was also charged with conspiring to falsify its corporate books and records to cover up
the bribery scheme. Also this morning, FalconStor entered into a deferred prosecution agreement
with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in which FalconStor admitted the allegations in the complaint and
agreed to forfeit to the United States $2.9 million. The United States Securities and Exchange
Commission also filed a civil enforcement action against FalconStor and a proposed final
judgment on consent in which FalconStor agreed to pay an additional $2.9 million in civil
penalties.#InternalControls #HealthCare #Communication
