Former Autonomy executive fires back at HP
An executive vilified by Hewlett-Packard Co. on allegations of an accounting ruse is escalating his counter-attack on the company accusing him. In a letter to HP’s board released Tuesday, former Autonomy CEO Mike Lynch fiercely defended his integrity. He also questions whether HP is using the charges of financial shenanigans to cover up damage caused by its own ineptitude. HP fired back with a statement that predicted its findings of misconduct will be proven in anticipated legal proceedings about the dispute.
