Sample text

Kenneth L. Lay resumed his chores as CEO. Shortly after this, Lay, the chairman and CEO of the Enron Corporation received an unsigned letter. The author of this letter was later identified to be Sherron S. Watkins, a vice president for Corporate Development at Enron, when she sent an expanded signed letter to Lay and offered to speak with him to describe her concerns. Mrs Watkins deserves credit for disclosing to Lay that a huge accounting–finance problem existed at Enron. The fact that not every statement in the letter can be verified or understood is less important than the overall tone of the letter and the urgent request for action.

In March 2001, Enron paid $330 million for 39 million shares of Azurix common stock. Increasing its ownership of Azurix implies that the initial investment was thought to be desirable and Enron was increasing its investment in that subsidiary. This transaction in 2001 was important since during the Skilling–Lay trial the Government would argue that both Skilling and Lay knew that the Azurix investment was overvalued. For example, the closing argument of Ms K. H. Ruemmler quotes Ben Glisan (p. 17818), the Enron Treasurer: And third, we knew that as a result of Raptor, but also other areas, inclusive of Broadband and Azurix, that there were charges that should be taken.

2–36). Things to note: 1. Losses from Broadband — $137 million (p. 12). 2. Related party transactions (p. 15). 3. Earnings of $788 million for 6 months; Earnings of $383 million for quarter ending 30 June 2001. 4. Nothing that raises significant concerns.
