Hygo And Operation Car Wash
Just days after the IPO, multiple media reports indicated that Hygo’s CEO Eduardo Navarro Antonello was connected to a bribery network being investigated in Brazil as part art of their long-running criminal investigation into money laundering and corruption known as “Operation Car Wash.”
The media reported that a company called Sapura Energy was interested in winning a contract with Petrobras worth $2.7 billion. The company allegedly hired lobbyist Maricio Carvalho to locate and obtain inside information to use in its proposal to Petrobras. Once he obtained this information, Carvalho allegedly gave it to Antonello, the defendant. Golar LNG then announced that Hygo was initiating a review of the allegations levied against Antonello.
Upon this announcement, company shares dropped by more than 32%, damaging investors. The shares closed at $6.86 on September 24, 2020.
