SEC v. Srinivasan (A.T. Kearney India Bribes)

The Securities and Exchange Commission settled a civil action against Chandramowli Srinivasan, the former president of A.T. Kearney India, which was an EDS subsidiary during the time period in question. The SEC accused Srinivasan of making $720,000 in bribe payments between early 2001 and September 2003 to senior employees of Indian state-owned companies to retain their business. The SEC charged that those payments also caused EDS to maintain inaccurate books and records. Srinivasan neither admitted nor denied wrongdoing and agreed to pay a $70,000 fine. EDS sold A.T. Kearney in January 2006. See related Electronic Data Systems misconduct instance, “Accounting Irregularities.”
