Case Study - South America
A major medical device manufacturer engaged Kreller to investigate a potential new distributor. Kreller’s local investigator verified the potential distributor’s registration details and shareholding. Government exposure checks were conducted to ascertain any possible touch points with politically exposed individuals. None were found. Reference checks determined the potential distributor maintained an excellent reputation within the business community. However, after a visit to the local court registry, it was determined the potential distributor had been recently indicted on charges of conspiring to fix prices within the local medical device market.
