Statement Of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara On Conviction Of David Riley

“As the jury unanimously found, David Riley exploited his position and access to information at Foundry Networks, a publicly traded technology company. What Riley forged at Foundry was a pipeline of material, nonpublic information that enabled others to engage in illegal insider trading and reap a windfall of more than 27 million dollars. What Riley got out of the arrangement is a felony conviction and the prospect of losing his liberty. He becomes the 87th defendant convicted of insider trading after trial or by guilty plea in this District in the last five years.”
