The South Korean subsidiary of Alere Inc. has agreed to pay more than $13 million to settle charges that it committed accounting fraud through its subsidiaries to meet revenue targets and made improper payments to foreign officials to increase sales in certain countries. The Securities and Exchange Commission issued an order finding that Alere, which produces and sells diagnostic testing equipment, improperly inflated revenues by prematurely recording sales for products that were still being stored at warehouses or otherwise not yet delivered to the customers.  According to the SEC’s order, Alere also engaged in improper revenue recognition practices at several other subsidiaries.
