Gregory Raben, 30, a former PwC auditor, agreed to pay $US47,758 (?24,278),
and William Borchard, 28, a former senior associate in PwC’s transaction
services group, agreed to pay $US20,836.
According to SEC’s complaint, Raben and Borchard used their access to
sensitive information about PwC’s clients to enable Raben to buy stock ahead of
a series of corporate takeovers. Without admitting or denying the allegations,
Raben and Borchard agreed to the settlement including monetary penalties.
Borchard, a licensed certified public accountant, was also barred from
practicing before the SEC as an accountant for three years under the plea deal.
The SEC said Borchard handled financial due diligence for PwC clients interested
in mergers or acquisitions and on six occasions in 2006 told his friend and
co-worker Raben about confidential plans.
