Allegations of sales to Iran despite sanctions

In 1997, prior to Fiorina’s joining the company, HP’s Dutch subsidiary formed a partnership with a company in Dubai, Redington Gulf, which sold HP’s products in Iran. Under Fiorina’s leadership at HP, the company sold millions of dollars worth of printers and computer products to Iran through the foreign subsidiary, while U.S. export sanctions were in effect. After the story was initially reported by The Boston Globe in 2008, the SEC sent a letter of inquiry to HP, who responded that products worth US$120 million were sold in fiscal 2008 arguing that the sales did not violate export sanctions because they were made through a foreign subsidiary. According to former officials who worked on sanctions, HP was using a loophole by routing their sales through a foreign subsidiary. HP ended its relationship with Redington Gulf after the SEC inquiry.
