On January 6, 2014, the Company disclosed in a press release that Mexico State-owned oil giant Petroleos Mexicanos, or "PEMEX", one of Key Energy's largest customers, is conducting an audit of the Company's aggregate billings of $372 million under its contracts with PEMEX.

On May 6, 2014, the Company announced in their recent Form 10-Q filing, that "[t]he U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has advised us that it is investigating possible violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act involving business activities of Key's operations in Russia."

On this news, shares of Key Energy fell $0.65 per share to $8.40, or more than 7.18%, from May 6, 2014 to May 8, 2014.

On July 17, 2014, the Company disclosed in a press release that it expects to report a second quarter loss in the range of 35 to 38 cents per share.  KEG announced that it will record a $30 million to $35 million pre-tax charge for goodwill and other assets impairments related to its operations in Russia.  Also, pre-tax expenses of $5 million were incurred in connection with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations.

On this news, shares of Key Energy fell $1.33 per share to $7.40, or more than 15.89%, from July 18, 2014.
