SEC Investigates ExxonMobil

The SEC is investigating ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) after whistleblowers submitted complaints alleging that the company overvalued assets in the Permian Basin, leading to “unrealistic assumptions about how quickly the company could drill wells there to arrive at a higher value.” The investigation is ongoing and, if the SEC obtains a verdict against ExxonMobil, these whistleblowers are entitled to a substantial reward.

Whistleblowers provide vital information, at great personal risk, to authorities leading to successful actions against violators of US Securities laws. To be successful, potential whistleblowers need proficient, experienced representation from attorneys like those in the Scarinci Hollenbeck, LLC to navigate the whistleblower process.
