The special committee, which was established on March 19 this year, was authorized by the board of directors to visit the company’s documents, records and information, and interviewed employees, senior executives and directors. In the course of the internal investigation, the special commission and its advisers have looked through 550000 documents, interviewed more than 60 witnesses and conducted extensive forensic, accounting and data analysis tests.
