NEW YORK, NY, July 24, 2020 -- Goldman Sachs and the Government of Malaysia announced an agreement to resolve all the criminal and regulatory proceedings in Malaysia involving the firm, including pending criminal proceedings against subsidiaries of Goldman Sachs and certain of their current and former directors, relating to 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
We are pleased to have reached an agreement with the Government of Malaysia to resolve outstanding charges and claims against Goldman Sachs. Today’s settlement is an important step towards putting the 1MDB matter behind us and will help enable the Malaysian government to move forward with additional recovery efforts and to execute on its economic priorities. There are important lessons to be learned from this situation, and we must be self-critical to ensure that we only improve from the experience.
