As part of the deal, Nissan has agreed to pay a $15 million fine to the SEC. YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (Nissan) has entered into a settlement agreement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding materially erroneous information about directors` compensation in previous annual reports on Nissan`s securities. The SEC has approved the deal and it`s final. According to the SEC`s settlement order, the commission of the fraudulent behavior of former chairman and deputy director Carlos Ghosn, with considerable support from former deputy director Greg Kelly, serves as the basis for Nissan`s liability. As stated in the order, Nissan granted significant cooperation to the SEC and immediately took corrective action to prevent the recurrence, including moving to a new governance structure with three legal committees (audit, compensation and appointment).
