Empire Intel: Relevant factors in provoking fraudulent financial reporting include declining social values, greater profit participation by management, less supervision due to financial downsizing, increased performance pressures and more active international crime organizations. A recent survey of U.S. chief financial officers (CFOs), indicated that more than two-thirds of these managers had been asked by senior management to manipulate the financial statements and an alarming 12 percent admitted to doing so.

Empire's Tip: Due diligence requires more than attention to numbers. Consider this example of an acquisition involving a U.S. business. The acquiring company performed extensive due diligence on "the numbers." Shortly after the acquisition was completed, management discovered that the target had engaged in widespread fraud, triggering liability from the resulting litigation. No one on the due diligence team had inquired about the character of management.
