On September 30, 2016, Cognizant Technology filed its Form 8-K with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission announcing the abrupt resignation of its President, Gordon Coburn, on September 27, 2016. The Company also disclosed it “is conducting an internal investigation into whether certain payments relating to facilities in India were made improperly and in possible violation of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other applicable laws” and “voluntarily notified the United States Department of Justice…and United States Securities and Exchange Commission…and is cooperating fully with both agencies.”
This news drove the price of Cognizant shares down as much as 17% during heavy intra-day trading on September 30, 2016. Bloomberg observed, “Coburn was the face of the company to investors.” The Company failed to reiterate its earnings guidance within its 8-K filing.
“Though Cognizant notified the DOJ and SEC, we’re investigating the scope and duration of the Company’s possible corrupt practices,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
