"The audit committee took the anonymous whistleblower complaints very seriously and commissioned a thorough investigation with the assistance of independent legal counsel. The audit committee determined that there was no evidence of any financial impropriety or executive misconduct," Infosys Audit Committee Chairperson, D Sundaram, said in a statement.
The committee has concluded the independent investigation into allegations contained in the anonymous whistleblower complaints the company disclosed on October 21, 2019, and determined that the allegations are substantially without merit, the statement said.
The audit committee conducted a thorough investigation with the assistance of independent legal counsel Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas & Co and PricewaterhouseCoopers, it added.
The Bengaluru-based company, after its October quarter results, had informed the stock exchanges of anonymous whistleblower complaints that had alleged certain unethical practices by the top management.
Speaking about the findings, Infosys Chairman, Nandan Nilekani, said, CEO Salil Parekh and CFO Nilanjan Roy are strong custodians of the company's proud heritage.
"Salil has played a key role in reinvigorating the organisation and driving momentum, and the board is confident that he will continue to execute on the company's new strategic direction successfully," he added.
