Under the anti-bribery provisions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (the “FCPA”), companies and individuals are prohibited from paying bribes or otherwise transferring anything of value to any foreign government official in exchange for assistance in obtaining or retaining business. In addition, publicly traded companies are required to implement certain accounting and record-keeping controls and practices which facilitate the detection and prevention of improper payments.
