HP hires former SEC GC to lead investigation into Autonomy

The computer giant accuses Autonomy of falsifying numbers during merger

Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) has employed a former Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) general counsel to head up its investigation into Autonomy.

Late last year, HP announced it was going to take an $8.8 billion hit as a result of fraudulent activity and misrepresentations made by Autonomy, the software company HP acquired in 2011 for $11.1 billion, during merger talks.
