Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of Freeport-McMoRan Inc.

Jan 27, 2016, 17:17 ET from Harwood Feffer LLP

NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of Freeport-McMoRan Inc. ("Freeport" or the "Company") (NYSE: FCX), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

Freeport's Indonesian subsidiary is subject to an inquiry by the Indonesian House of Representatives regarding bribery solicitations by a public official.  In November 2015, it was reported that an Indonesian state-owned enterprise workers union planned to request that the U.S. Department of Justice investigate whether Freeport had violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act related to allegations that Freeport had bribed public officials to renew a mining contract.  Thereafter, Freeport's Chairman and the CEO of its Indonesian subsidiary both resigned in December 2015 and January 2016, respectively.

On these developments, Freeport stock is down from over $8 per share in November 2015 to its current price of $4.65.

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
