Two major U.S. defense contractors, both Fortune 100 companies, were preparing to close on a multimillion-dollar joint venture with a company in the Middle East. Arcanum performed an enhanced due diligence investigation of the Middle Eastern entity. Using its well-placed human intelligence sources on the ground, Arcanum uncovered the complete ownership structure of the company, including all shareholders, the financial status of the company, and the connections between the company’s executives and key political figures. This information allowed the client to move forward with the joint venture while complying with all relevant U.S. regulations, including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
Arcanum provides customized and specific strategic and competitive intelligence, analysis and expert advice on a daily basis to major oil companies, global financial institutions, governments, defense contractors and Global 100 companies.
