Item 8.01 Other Events.

The Company is conducting an internal investigation of the operations of certain of its foreign subsidiaries in West Africa including possible violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Company’s policies and other applicable laws. In June 2016, the Company voluntarily disclosed the existence of its extensive internal review to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the United States Department of Justice. It is the Company’s intent to fully cooperate with these agencies and any other applicable authorities in connection with any further investigation that may be conducted in this matter. While the Company’s review does not indicate that there has been any material impact on the Company’s previously filed financial statements, the Company continues to collect information and is unable to predict the ultimate resolution of these matters with these agencies. The Company’s board and management are committed to continuously enhancing the Company’s internal controls that support improved compliance and transparency throughout its global operations.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
