Corporate Investigation Case Study
Kreller provides regulatory compliance services to assist companies and their internal ethics and corporate compliance officers in avoiding adverse transactions.
Due to the covert nature of the industry, client names are proprietary; however, the following case studies represent a cross section of international investigations recently conducted on behalf of Kreller clients.
Russia, Satellite Imaging
The Chief Compliance Counsel for a satellite imaging corporation received a tip from a business associate that one of their resellers allegedly had a new silent majority owner who was listed on both US and EU economic sanctions lists. Kreller was requested to conduct research immediately to determine if this was the case.
Kreller did not find a direct connection between the reseller and the new silent partner through corporate registration and shareholding documents.
Because the reseller’s direct shareholders were companies, Kreller researched each layer of shareholding until we were able to establish a connection with the new silent partner through a series of shell companies affiliated with the reseller.
Had Kreller’s agent not physically reviewed these filings on the premises, this information would not have been uncovered. The satellite imaging corporation was properly able to mitigate the circumstances due to Kreller’s thorough report.
