NEW YORK, June 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at iGATE Corporation ("iGATE" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: IGTE).
The investigation focuses on whether iGATE made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, the investigation focuses on whether iGATE failed to disclose that the Company's Chief Executive Officer and President, Phaneesh Murthy ("Murthy"), was maintaining an improper relationship with an iGATE employee, which violated the Company's internal policies and that because of the relationship, Murthy put himself in a position to be terminated, thus endangering iGATE's future success.
On May 20, 2013, after the market closed, the Company announced that its Board of Directors terminated the employment of Murthy for violating policy regarding his failure to report his relationship with a subordinate employee.
