Continental Carbon Company has reached a $98 million settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the U.S. Department of Justice to implement a series of plant improvements designed to reduce air emissions from its three U.S. plants. Continental Carbon Company said that it has agreed to establish lower emissions levels at its carbon black manufacturing facilities in Phenix City, Ala.; Ponca City, Okla.; and Sunray, Texas. The company noted that it will install additional air quality control equipment in stages at each of these facilities during the next six years. This initiative is the result of diligent and cooperative efforts with the USEPA during the past several years as part of the USEPA's national enforcement initiative aimed at reducing emissions from chemical and petrochemical sources.

Commerzbank Announces Agreements with U.S. Authorities Regarding Sanctions and Money Laundering Violations

Commerzbank has reached settlements with the Department of Justice ('DoJ'), the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, the New York County District Attorney's Office, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve ('the Federal Reserve') and New York's Department of Financial Services ('NYDFS') regarding U.S. sanctions and New York State business records violations that occurred between 2002 and 2008. The Bank has also reached settlements with the DoJ, the Federal Reserve and the NYDFS regarding violations arising from its failure between 2008 and 2013 to maintain adequate policies, procedures and practices for detecting and reporting potential money laundering activities. The settlements regarding sanctions and money laundering (AML) total USD 1,452 million (EUR 1,196 million). Commerzbank built adequate reserves as discussions with the authorities progressed. On 12 February 2015, the Bank announced that a further increase in legal provisions was possible and could be reflected in the final annual financial statements for 2014. Further to the amount already reserved, the Bank will book an additional one-off charge of EUR 338 million in the fourth quarter 2014 for these settlements, to be reflected in the final annual financial statements for 2014.
