07:14 EDTUTXUnited Technologies discloses SEC investigation into engine sales
United Technologies disclosed in a regulatory filing that In December 2013 and January 2014, UTC made voluntary disclosures to the U.S. Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission Division of Enforcement and the U.K.ís Serious Fraud Office to report the status of its internal investigation regarding a non-employee sales representative retained by United Technologies International Operations, Inc. and International Aero Engines for the sale of Pratt & Whitney and IAE engines and aftermarket services, respectively, in China. On April 7, the SEC notified UTC that it is conducting a formal investigation and issued a subpoena to UTC seeking production of documents related to the disclosures. UTC is cooperating fully with the investigation. Because the investigation is at an early stage, we cannot predict its outcome or the consequences thereof at this time. UTC also said that at the outset of the internal investigation, UTIO and IAE suspended all commission payments to the sales representative, and UTIO and IAE have not resumed making any payments. This led to two claims by the sales representative for unpaid commissions: a civil lawsuit filed against UTIO and UTC and an arbitration claim against IAE. "We are contesting the lawsuit and the arbitration claim. We do not believe that the resolution of the lawsuit or the arbitration will have a material adverse effect on our competitive position, results of operations, cash flows or financial condition," the company said.
