On March 23, 2012, Layne filed documents with the Securities and Exchange Commission disclosing an internal investigation had revealed “documents and information suggesting that improper payments . . . were made over a considerable period of time, by or on behalf of, certain foreign subsidiaries of the Company to agents and other third parties interacting with government officials in certain countries in Africa.” Layne further disclosed that these payments may violate federal anti-bribery laws, as well as other laws, and that it was cooperating with both the United States Department of Justice and the Securities Exchange Commission as those agencies investigated the matter. These allegations, if true, have the potential to impose significant burdens and costs on Layne and its shareholders. Finkelstein Thompson’s investigation seeks to determine what remedies may be available to Layne shareholders.
