FMN - 2021/July, Seg 3 - The SEC Is Watching and the New E on EESG - Part I

In April 2018, the board of directors of Andeavor LLC and Marathon Petroleum Corporation approved the merger between the two companies according to what was thought to be in the best interest of their respective equity holders. Andeavor was acquired by Marathon in October 2018 for over $23 billion, making it the largest acquisition in San Antonio's history. The acquisition was completed in July 2019; however, Andeavor was on the Securities and Exchange Commission's radar. Charles Hecht, from Charles Hecht, P.C., discusses the case in further detail. Was this a case about weak internal accounting controls or insider trading? And what is the new "E" on EESG and the related required disclosures from the SEC?.
