About Largest Sanction to Profit Ratios by Groups of Related Enforcement Actions

    This graphic identifies the ten largest sanction to profit ratios in groups of related Enforcement Actions initiated since the statute's enactment. The sanction to profit ratio represents the total sanctions imposed in a group of related Enforcement Actions as a percentage of the profit earned (or expenses avoided) from completed bribery payments. Profit values and sanctions are culled from groups of related Enforcement Actions linked to an FCPA Matter and are adjusted to avoid double counting that could otherwise occur when, for example, the same or affiliated defendants are sued in different Enforcement Actions for the same underlying bribery scheme. FCPA Matters with only Investigations are excluded from this analysis. Sanctions paid to foreign governments pursuant to global resolutions are excluded from this analysis.
