Global Industrial Manufacturing M&A Value Increases 70 Percent in Second Quarter of 2011, According to PwC

The industrial manufacturing industry has been identified as an area of increased risk for Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) violations. Incidents of corruption and bribery often arise in this sector when companies deal with third parties, as suppliers have been known to deliberately substitute inferior materials to reduce costs.

According to PwC's Misthal, "Many industrial manufacturing companies are taking a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption so as not to risk penalties from regulators and potential damage to brand value and share price. In response, companies are prioritizing anticorruption initiatives that mandate effective 'tone at the top' and are sending a consistent message opposing economic crime."
