Kroll helps uncover corruption to recover manufacturers funds
Kroll was contacted by a listed, multinational, heavy machinery company which had bought a private business with good, complementary market coverage. However the company had then found that operations in one crucial national market were entirely corrupt. All of the key client relationships there were secured through bribery. The purchase due diligence had thrown up some indication of this, but the seller had claimed to have cleaned up the business through putting in place proper contracts and financial structures that prevented further abuses. New structures had indeed been instituted, but only to hide the fact that nothing at all had changed. Kroll was able to help the company prove and document the corruption, allowing the client to make a nine figure recovery from the sellers.
