NEW YORK, April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential misconduct at Newmont Mining Corporation ("Newmont" or the "Company") (NEM).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company's Board of Directors and/or its officers committed mismanagement and breached their fiduciary duties. On April 20, 2016, the Company filed a quarterly statement on Form 10-Q with the SEC announcing that it is conducting a review of its compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Specifically, the Company stated the following in the Form 10-Q: "We occasionally identify or are apprised of information or allegations that certain employees, affiliates, agents or associated persons may have engaged in unlawful conduct for which we might be held responsible. We are conducting an investigation, with the assistance of outside counsel, relating to certain business activities of the Company and its affiliates and contractors in countries outside of the United States. The investigation includes a review of compliance with the requirements of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other applicable laws and regulations. The Company is working with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice with respect to the investigation. In March 2016, the Company entered into a one-year agreement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission tolling the statute of limitations relating to the investigation, and recently entered into a similar agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice. As of the filing of these financial statements, we cannot predict the outcome of these matters. Accordingly, no provision with respect to these matters has been made in our consolidated financial statements."
