The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today announced a settlement with Nasdaq, Inc.  Nasdaq agreed to remit $4,040,923 to settle its potential civil liability for a former wholly owned foreign subsidiary’s apparent violations of sanctions on Iran.  This former subsidiary engaged in the exportation of services to Iran and the Government of Iran, thereby committing 151 apparent violations of OFAC sanctions on Iran.  The settlement amount reflects OFAC’s determination that Nasdaq’s conduct was non-egregious and voluntarily self-disclosed.  For more information, please visit the following web notice.
