On August 5, 2010 SciClone was informed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that a formal, non-public investigation of SciClone had been initiated. The SEC issued a subpoena requesting documents and other information related to a “range of matters including interactions with regulators and government-owned entities in China, activities relating to sales in China and documents relating to certain company financial and other disclosures.” On August 6, 2010, SciClone received a letter from the Department of Justice (DOJ) indicating that the DOJ, which was already investigating FCPA issues in the pharmaceutical industry generally, had received information about the Company’s practices suggesting possible violations. SciClone disclosed the investigations on August 9, 2010, and the following day SciClone’s stock prices fell approximately 30%.
