The company pays about 3 billion per year to external suppliers. Over 5 years that is something like 15 billion. 30 million is negligible

The Bribery Act 2010 aims to promote anti-bribery practices amongst businesses, and came into force on 1 July 2011. An organisation will commit a criminal offence, if it fails to prevent bribery that is intended to get or keep business or an advantage in the conduct of business for the organisation.

He pleaded guilty exactly 2 years ago.This is old news. He is getting sentenced this week.The problem is they have been investigating Petrofac for 4 years and no other charges against the company have been filed and has collapsed the share price in the meantime.

Former senior Petrofac executive pleads guilty to bribery offences14 January, 2021 | Case UpdatesIn connection with the SFO's ongoing investigation into Petrofac Limited and its subsidiaries (Petrofac), David Lufkin, a British national and the former Global Head of Sales at Petrofac, has today pleaded guilty at Westminster Magistrates' Court to three counts of bribery. The offences relate to corrupt offers and payments made between 2012 and 2018 to influence the award of contracts to Petrofac in the United Arab Emirates worth approximately $3.3 billion.Specifically, Mr Lufkin has pleaded guilty to his role in offering and making corrupt payments to agents to influence the award of an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to Petrofac in 2013 (and a variation to that contract awarded in 2014) on the Upper Zakum UZ750 Field Development Project, and a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract awarded to Petrofac in 2014 on the Bab Integrated Facilities Project, each located in Abu Dhabi. Total payments of approximately $30 million were made, or were due to be made, by Petrofac to those agents in connection with these contracts.These charges are in addition to eleven charges of bribery already brought by the SFO, to which Mr Lufkin pleaded guilty in February 2019. Those charges related to corrupt offers to influence the award of contracts to Petrofac in Iraq worth in excess of $730 million and in Saudi Arabia worth in excess of $3.5 billion. Mr Lufkin's case has been committed for sentence to Southwark Crown Court on 11 February 2021.The SFO's investigation into the activities of Petrofac, its officers, employees and agents for suspected bribery, corruption and money laundering continues. This is an active case and the SFO can provide no further comment at this time.

Plunger, [Whereas Master has used the website that many of us have used for years and has proved reliable - taking its info from the FCA spradsheets.] Do you have the link to that website? If it is recommended for its reliability then it is worth having. Thank you.

Still showing on Short tracker PFC, that is usually reliable, don't think the volume has been there for Rye Bay to close, Blackrock still have over 3% to close, good news and a short squeeze could still be on the cards. Sentence possible I reckon 12 months /2 Years when he is sentenced, some of the main culprits were given 5 Years. Are the shorts hanging on for the bad publicity sentencing will bring, it will be in all the news reels on the markets, perhaps they will close after sentencing who knows..;

The point i was making about Gamestop is the level of absurdity speculators go to in order to make a quick buck, when a stock is shorted by 140 perecent, it makes you wonder if the hedgies are as smart as they think, how can anyone get out of a short squeeze with such a volume? But here we are talking about less than 8 percent, there are many weak companies out there that are not shorted to this level, many airlines for example are down only 30 to 40 percent from pre covid yet not that many short interests. As for people who use margin accounts good luck to them.

"No we don't have the volume and even we did it won't change a thing, suppose you have the cash to open a short on 5 percent of the shares, why would this action alone affect the price?" Ryad, the above was your understanding that short selling does not effect the price. Volume is everything, either buying or selling and it can drive the price upwards or downwards. Maybe now you understand how short selling can affect the price? Agreed that if you are in it for the long run then you can ride out the big dips but the problem is if you have bought on margin and can't cover the drops then the short sellers can kill you..

Gamestop is different in the sense that the retail investors took a coordinated action, and 140 percent of the stock was borrowed by the short sellers. Anyway those of us who are in for the long run have nothing to worry about.

RyadIt all depends on how low the share price falls for the hedge funds to make money.A share price falling may cause other holders to lose confidence and sell their shares causing further drops.The hedge funds will not buy them back in one go. They will play the order book and buy back in smaller amounts as not to cause the price to rise sharply.Many hedge funds make a killing shorting but their is no guarantee that shorting will make them money. If their is a much bigger volume of buying to selling then this will drive the price up eg..Tesla. Look what happened to Melvin capital with Gamestop.

Ryad, theoretical sami is correct. Don't forget in an open market the sellers and buyers are all playing at the same time. There might well be other factors affecting the share price going on at the same time. Shorting a stock do go horribly wrong sometimes and hence the huge losses

Does anyone know if there are any reports/institutions/analysis out there that would give an indication of the underlying factors that has driven a downward movement in a company's share price Shorting a stock is only one such factor.
