Stout was engaged to perform an independent investigation into the conduct and practices of certain employees who allegedly misappropriated assets. Our findings provided that an employee authorized the purchase of information technology hardware and software that he subsequently misappropriated totaling approximately $3.6 million. We also identified evidence indicating the employee participated in a scheme to inflate and/or falsify invoices from one of the company's vendors and he subsequently received kickbacks from that vendor. Our findings resulted in the termination of the employee and those findings were provided to law enforcement and resulted in criminal charges being filed against the suspect identified in our report.
