This article presents information related to investment banking in the U.S. telecommunications industry. Lucent Technologies Inc. is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice and the SEC for possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The SEC is also considering civil action against three former Lucent executives, including its former CEO. Creditors of Adelphia Communications Corp. said that the winning bidder for the bankrupt, scandal-torn company must pay at least $17.5 billion, a price that some skeptics said is too high.
