SunEdison received a subpoena from the Department of Justice on Monday.
In a regulatory filing Thursday, SunEdison disclosed that the DOJ is requesting documents related to its acquisition of Vivint Solar, and how it financed projects in Uruguay, among others.
Vivint terminated its deal with SunEdison earlier in March, and argued that the company was unable to fulfil its obligations.
SunEdison also said it got an informal inquiry from the Securities and Exchange Commission “covering similar areas.”
“The Company and the board of directors intend to cooperate with the DOJ’s inquiry and the SEC investigation,” it said.
Shares were little changed in after-hours trading. They have plunged 55% over the past five days, and closed at $0.5402 on Thursday.
Here’s the full regulatory filing:
