Re: Modification of Bail Conditions
United States v. Rajaratnam and Chiesi
Docket No. 09 Cr. - (RJH)
Dear Judge Holwell:
JOHN M.DOWD
20288743861fax: 2028874288
jdowd@aklngump.com
We write on behalf of our client Raj Rajaratnam in the above-referenced matter, which we
understand was assigned to Your Honor yesterday and is currently scheduled for an initial
arraignment on Monday, December 21,2009 at 12:00 p.m. We write to request Your Honor' s
reconsideration of the terms ofMr. Rajaratnam's release on bail after completion of the
arraignment.
1
Procedural History
At Mr. Rajaratnam's initial presentment on October 16, 2009, Magistrate Judge Eaton granted
Mr. Rajaratnam's release upon his signature of a $100 million personal recognizance bond, co-
signed by five fmancially responsible persons and secured by $20 million in cash and/or other
assets.
2
At the bail hearing, the Government sought to have Mr. Rajaratnam detained despite the
facts that Mr. Rajaratnam (i) is an American citizen living in New York with his entire family
including his elderly parents, (ii) poses no danger whatsoever to the community and, (iii) to the
contrary, has been a vibrant and philanthropic resident of the New York area for decades.
In setting the bail, Magistrate Judge Eaton stated that the Court would revisit the terms of Mr.
Rajaratnam's release and reduce the personal recognizance bond if Mr. Rajaratnam cooperated
fully with his supervising Pre-Trial Services Officer. See Hearing Tr. (October 16, 2009) at 38:5

We sought the Government's consent to this request but have not received its response.

- 38: 10 (noting that, "frankly, if the pretrial officer reports that everything is going very well,
then I think it would be logical to return a bit of the money.")?
We learned subsequent to the initial presentment that the Government made numerous errors and
misleading arguments in the preliminary bail argument, operating from the fundamental
misimpression that Mr. Rajaratnam intended to flee, which he did not. Moreover, at the initial
presentment, the Government violated Title 18, United States Code, Section 25 18(9) in failing to
tum over the wiretap aprlications prior to using the wiretap intercepts to argue for Mr.
Rajaratnam's detention. We raised these issues, and the very restrictive travel limitations,
placed on Mr. Rajaratnam by letter dated October 29, 2008.
4
In a subsequent hearing before Magistrate Judge Katz on November 5, 2009 to relax the terms of
bail, including in particular, the very narrow travel restrictions placed on Mr. Rajaratnam,
Magistrate Judge Katz deferred to Magistrate Judge Eaton's sentiment at presentment, opting to
defer reconsideration until later. See Hearing Tr. (November 5, 2009) at 10:25 - 11:5 ("Judge
Eaton, as I recall, said two weeks ago that maybe in the end of November, if things are looking
OK, one way or the other, he might be willing to reconsider.").
5
Magistrate Judge Katz did,
however, relax the restrictions placed on Mr. Rajaratnam' s movements, permitting him to travel
within the forty-eight contiguous states.
6
Argument
Mr. Rajaratnam has fully complied with the terms of his release and has dutifully followed every
instruction from the Cowt and Pre-Trial Services Officer Santos. Accordingly, consistent with
Magistrate Judge Eaton's guidance, we respectfully request that Your Honor reduce Mr.
Rajaratnam's personal recognizance bond to $20 million and authorize the release of the $2.5
million cash posted by Mr. Rajaratnam. The Court should rest assured that Mr. Rajaratnam will
continue to be present for any and all court proceedings in this matter. Mr. Rajaratnam denies

presentment is attached at Exhibit B.

The Government effectively conceded its violation of the statute and produced the
wiretap applications subsequent to the presentment

October 29, 2009 substantive submission is atta{;hed at Exhibit C.

the Government's allegations and looks forward to clearing his name. Immediately following his
arrest and release on bail, Mr. Rajaratnam issued a document "hold" order for the Galleon offices
and had all paper shredders removed. He did so to ensure the preservation of all Galleon records
which he firmly believes will exonerate him, a concrete demonstration of his intent to defend
himself against the allegations contained in the Complaint. Since that time, Mr. Rajaratnam has
carefully worked with Galleon to wind down its business, to take care of the Galleon employees
negatively affected by the Government's sudden arrest of Mr. Rajaratnam and its related press
conferences, and to ensure that the fmancial interests of Galleon's investors were fully protected.
Despite these efforts, his bail, as currently constituted, carries the stigma of being the highest
such bail in recent memory, far exceeding the terms of release for Bernard Madoff after Mr.
Madof:rs admission of guilt. Accordingly, we respectfully submit that Mr. Rajaratnam's
complete cooperation and compliance with the terms of his release and instructions of the Pre-
Trial Services Office satisfy Your Honor's concerns and warrants the reduction of his bail.
In addition, several additional facts have emerged since the initial presentment before Magistrate
Judge Eaton which further support the reduction of Mr. Rajaratnam's bail. We have recently
confmned that the Government's disclosures to the Court in the Complaint contained serious,
material misrepresentations and omissions that call into question the Government's allegations
against Mr. Rajaratnam. The Government represented in the Complaint that "CW-1," now
known to be Roomy Khan, had begun cooperating with the Government only in November 2007
in hopes of receiving leniency in connection with an expected guilty plea to criminal charges.
See Complaint, 18, fh. 1.
7
The Government presumably made this representation in an attempt
to vouch for the reliability of Ms. Khan, whose purported information against Mr. Rajaratnam is
the centerpiece of the probable cause offered by the Government to the Court to gain judicial
approval for its wiretaps and to seek Mr. Rajaratnam's arrest.
The Government's disclosure with respect to Ms. Khan has proven to be both incorrect and
incomplete. Court records that were recently unsealed demonstrate Ms. Khan had been
previously convicted in 2002 of wire fraud and had specifically cooperating with the United
States Attorney's Office and the FBI against Mr. Rajaratnam well before that. We have also
learned, based on Ms. Khan's allocution during her plea of guilty to new fraud and obstruction of
justice charges on October 19, 2009, that Ms. Khan violated the terms of her prior "cooperation"
with the Government and the terms of her probation by engaging in additional criminal conduct
subsequent to her 2002 felony conviction.
Furthermore, the Government failed to disclose to the Court that the Government in fact found
no evidence that Mr. Rajaratnam traded on insider information allegedly provided by Ms. Khan

resulting from Ms. Khan's purported cooperation against Mr. Rajaratnam earlier this decade,
despite an "exhaustive analysis of the labyrinth of accounts associated with Galleon." ("Based
on information obtained to date, Rajaratnam cannot be tied to illegal insider trading connected to
the Intel infonnation. He also did not provide any monetary payment for the [Intel]
information.").
8
We respectfully submit that this exculpatory information would have been
relevant to the Court's consideration of the Government's request for an arrest warrant against
Mr. Rajaratnam and, at minimum, would have directly rebutted the Government's argument at
the bail hearing about the purported strength of its case.
Conclusion
For the reasons stated above, we respectfully request that Your Honor reduce Mr. Rajaratnam's
bail conditions to permit his release on a $20 million personal recognizance bond, co-signed by
five financially responsible persons and secured by Mr. Rajaratnam's personal property valued at
$17.5 million, which has already been pledged.
Thank you for Your Honor's consideration of this r

t'.P. . DOWD: Good afternoon, your nonoT. John Dowd
f or Mr.
THE COURT : Good afternoon.
MR. DOWD: .!'ve come before you today to seek
modiflcat i on of a ball that was set 1n order to reasonably
a$a ure his respectfully t hat the
restuctions and the $100 million bond are unnecessary an<:!
And I'd l1ke to JUSt make a f e w poi ,,ts- 1n addition
to what the letter we sent to you co vered.
We sugges t . your Honor t qovcrnmGnt simpl y fail@d
to the eno.r:-tn.Ous bon.oj end the travel reat ricti. ons wher e
tGexe's no risk of flight . has and

His children school in New Yor k hare. He nos

and loyal tc all of them. He's been a good and

Page 3
ttl family, Galleon, and its 129 employees, he's been very loyal to
121. them.
t JJ Your Honor, when be was released on October 16th,
1• 1 first thing he did is that all the Galleon documents ano
r:s1 records be preserved. In addition, instead of freezing the
!61 assets of the company to protect himself, he'd been winding
111 down and liquidating without fee, and with the
taJ assistance of counsel to pTotect the investors, the vendors,
t9t and his employees in these difficult c ircumstances. In fact,
rtoJ he's trying to sell the company so that the 129 employees will
1111 not lose their jobs.
tl2J Let me now turn to the criminal complaint, your Honor.
l t3J We now know that Judge Eaton did not know that the complaint
11• 1 was lodged under oath without the critical contemporaneous
!lSJ ·trading records of Galleon, where all of these transactions
ntSJ took place. These contemporaneous records are at the heart and
1111 soul of this case, the trading records, the analyst reports,
(I BJ all the communications surrounding these trades and the trading
! 191 positions of Galleon. They have never been sought by the
1201 government until a few days after the arrest, and a graad jury
r211 was subpoenaed -- was issued to the company, a fact not
t221 disclosed to Judge Eaton.
1231 THE COURT: Well, did they rely on them in making an
12• 1 argument before Judge Eaton?
£2:SJ MR. DOWD: Well, your Honor, if you re.ad the
p
111 complaint, it appears they were relying on trading records,
121 etcetera, but there's no indication, and they did not have the
tJJ Galleon records. It was not pointed out tbat Galleon was
1•1 voluntarily registered with the SEC; !Uld, indeed, the SEC
rs1 conducted an audit in 2007 of Galleon and its records. All I
£61 suggest, your Honor, is that the complaint is not as
PI overvvhelming and compelling as the government would like the
!81 magistrate to believe, because--
t!ll THE COURT: Well, that's not really the issue today.
1101 MR. OOWD: Well, one of the issues was the strength of
tll l the complaint, that they --
11.2 1 THE COURT: Well, Judge Eaton made decisions about
tUJ bail; he didn't detain the defendant. You're seeking a
ru1 modification, correct?
t1s
1
MR. DOWD: That's correct, your Honor.
1161 THE COURT: And what's changed?
( 1.71 MR. OOWO: \Vhat has changed is that-- Mr. Rajaratnam
[1a1 has behaved in a most lawful way, and I just want the Court to
ttl< I know that; with respect to these records, the employees, and
£20J other people. And he's a different person than was portrayed
!2Ll to the Court before Judge Eaton. In addition, your Honor --
1221 IHt= COURT: Were you at the bail hearing?
1231 MR. DOWD: No, I was not, your Honor, but I read the
124 1 record --
!25 1 THE COURT: But he was represented?

MR. Jl)OWir.• !k'WM represented, your Honor, but be had
about ten minutes with counsel. And he didn't really ha' e an
opportunity to lay all these facts before the Court
So, y0ur Honor, I would ask,. u1 addition to the
crinuoal complaint, in footnote 1 of paragraph 10 on page 10,
the soura ·- it was not revealed that the source had a
cnminal conviction, it was not revealed that the source had
also fabricated evidence before a U.S. District Court in August
of2009. All rm saying is, there's an issne about the
credil)iljty o f this complaint. But I just want you to know
that from his standpoint, be's not going anywhere. Now,
everything is at stake. He's records. We
believe the rerords wilt be powerful and helpful in trying this
case.
What l'd ask you, your Honor, is to give us more
leeway oo the travel restrictions. In addition to coming to my
office in Washington, which would be very helpful, we've got
three cases to try; we're already under way with Judge Rak:off.
And, your Honor, we'd be happy to report, Mr. Santos, who's the
pretrial services officer, has to travel. In addition, it
would be helpful if he bad the ability to travel in the United
States so thac he could help sell-· save the business. But
we're happy to report and account where he's going, why be's
going, etcetera.
The only other point rd suggest, your Honor. is I
PageS
111 just thmk I 00 1IUlhon is too much; it's oot necessary for this
121 defendant, with all the ties that he has hero. I'd ask your
131 consideration on that point.
r•l THE COURT: I mean he bas posted the security for the
lSI bond?
16J MR. OOWO: He has posted the security, your Honor.
l7l But given the fact that he's out of business, there's an awful
tal lot of cash there that could be helpful in taking care of
t91 liabilities. Your Honor, he is responsible for all tlle
1
1o
1
liabilities of-· and he's trying to meet them all in Galleon.
1
u1 He doesn't want anybody to lose a nickel for this. He's not
1
12
1
taking any fees, he's not taking anything for himself; be's
llll trying to protect - so there's $2-l/2 million cash in this,
1
u1 and I'd ask your Honor for consideration and some relief in
t15l that department.

THE COURT: Thank you.
1111 MR. DOWO: Your Honor, I want to mention something
1
1e1 else the government rajsed about the investment in Sri Lanka.
!19l We really don't want rhe Court to be concerned about that
1201 First of aU, your Honor, tho vast majority ofthat is in stock
1211 in a public company, and we're happy to comrmt to the Court and
1221 the pretrial services officer that that's a long-term
!231 investment that will not be disposed of. And if there's a need
tzc
1
to dispose of it, we'll come to the Court fust and ask for
r2s
1
pemtission to do so. So there's not 25, 30 million dollars

worth of cash. And what cash he has in Sri Lanka, he's
bringing back here to help pay the vendors and other people the
obljgations at Galleon. The balance will be stock on a public
company but I want your Honor to know, 1 don't want anybody to
be concerned that it's some fund over there that he could use
to escape. He's not, and we're happy to be transparent about
it and offer that
THE COURT: OK, thank you.
MR. DOWD: Thank you, your Honor.
MR. KLEIN: YourHonor-
THE DEPUTY CLERK: lden.tify yourself.
MR. KLEIN: Your Honor, Josh Klein on behalf of the
government Also seated at counsel table are Andrew Michaelson
and John.athan Streeter from the U.S. Attorney's Office, and
B.J. Kang from the FBl. Good afternoon, your Honor.
THE COURT: Good aftemoon.
MR. KLEIN: Your Honor, I just want to clarify a
couple of things that defense counsel Jed with.
First, we did have trading records that we obtained
from Galleon's client broker. Second, with respect to the SEC
audit, that was the audit that uncovered the instant message
from a cooperating witness to the defendant that said something
to tile effect of, bold off on PLCM - which is the symbol for
'Polycom, one of the stocks charged in the complaint -until!
get guidance. And we actually reference that [M --I don't
PageS
111 believe we indicate where it was obtained but we reference that
121 IM in the complaint.
Ill With respect to the change of circumstances, we point
tc 1 out in the government's brief the only change of circumstance
!51 is the fact that Galleon, the defendant's company, is now being
161 wound down. And whatever the defendant may or may not be doing
PI vis-a-vis Galleon's employees, to the extent that he refers to
111 Galleon as perhaps his life's most important work, or something
IPJ to that effect, in his Jetter, that entity is being bound down.
uoJ Any ties that the defendant has to New York, by virtue of ·
1111 Galleon, are being unwound and are bemg weakened rathef' than
1121   So in terms of a change in circumstance, if
llll anything, we believe that the change in circumstance would
tu 1 militate a strengthened ball package, not any reduction in the
tl5l bail.
11,1 With respect to- I don't want to be repetitive of
1111 what's in the brief; ru just touch upon it very quicldy.
11e1 With respect to the defendant's ties to Sri Lanka, they go far
1191 beyond the 25 to 35 million dollars in the account that was
1201 referenced. He's reported in the press to be one of the
1211 biggest, if not the biggest, stakeholder in at least one or two
1221 of the biggest conglomerates in Sri Lanka. He was born and
I2JI raised there. He has, according to the pretrial services
12" report, aunts, uncles, cousl.OS there. In tenns of his
!251 international ties ·· and this is also indicated in the
HEARING Min-U-Script® {2) Page 5 - Page 8
UNITED STATES OF AMERJCA v.
RAJ RAJRATNAM
P<;lge9
1 tJ pretrial services report -· they are much broader tl1an just
121 ties to Sri Lanka. There's extensive international travel.
l-'1 He's admitted to the FBI post arrest that he owns property
111 abroad, in Singapore, the U.K., Canada, etcetera.
cs1 So we beJieve that tho fact ofrhese connections
161 overseas create the opportunity for flight. We believe the
m defendant's resources, which are reported as between 1.3
ttl b11lion and 1.8 billion, are cnonnous. And we believe that the
ttl strength of the   case is extremely strong.
uo1 talking about a case that is built around not only the trading
(ltl records and telephone records that often comprise the core of
1121 evidence in an insider trading case, but we also have
1u1 ·cooperators; and, most importantly, we have the consensual
£1< 1 recordings and the wiretap recordings that stretch over a
(151 period of many mol\ths tmd Lhat capture the crimes as they were
1161 unfolding.
t>7J And so the government's position, your Honor, as we
n•1 indtcate in the bnef, is that there's no basis for any
1191 reduction in the bail package; there's no change of
1201 circumstance that warrants any sort of di.mjnution in the bail
1211 that was set by Judge Eaton.
1221 THE COURT: Well. lei me understand why you would have
1231 concerns with his being able to trdvel to Washington to consult
12•1 with his attorney.
12sJ MR. KLEIN: With respect t.o travel , your Honor, we
Page 10
111 would like the opportumty to object, depending on lhe
c21 information that we have and co the extent thal your Honor
wants to order modification that would require the defendant to
1•1 let us know in advance of travel, where the travel is going to
151 take place and the period of travel, give us the contact
£61 information -- and if we get that infonnation in advance of the
111 travel, such that we have an opportunity to object, we don't
lSI oppose a package outlined along that framework, as opposed to
191 having to come to the Court in every instance. So I don't k.now
1101 that there is an objection in every instance to travel, but we
uu want to know, and we want an opportunity to object.
m1 THE COURT: Do you have any problem with that?
Ill I MR. KLEIN: No, your Honor, we don't
tlfl THE COURT: It seems to me it's a reasonable request.
1151 r don't think Judge Eaton meant to preclude it. And certainly
ru1 as long as Mr. Rajaratnam advises pretrial services in advance
em where he intends to travel within the United States-·
1111 MR. DOWD: Yes, your Honor.
ru1 THE COURT: --when he mtends to travel and for what
1201 reason, if necessary, if they want to see his airplane
tickets-
1221 MR. DOWD: Certainly, your Honor, absolutely no
problem there, none at all .
c2t1 THE COURT: So f'll modify the bail to pennit that.
t2s1 I don't really see a reason to revisit the monetary

amount Judge Eaton, as l recall, said two weeks ago that
maybe in the end of November, if things are looking OK, one way
or the other, he might be willing;to reconsider. But a.s I
uuderstand it, the cash is $2-112 million, the rest is posteu
securitY and property; is that right?
MR. DOWD: That's correct, your Honor.
THE COURT: So I don't see any reason modify that
bail at this point. But I will modify the conditions of travel
.for purposes of consulting with you and for business, if he
gives advance notice, advises pretrial why he's going, where
he's going, and if they want to see airplane tickets--
MR. DOWD: We'll provide the contact informacion also,
your Honor, certainly happy to do that.
THE COURT: Anything else on this application?
MR. DOWD: No. Thank you very much.
MR. KLEIN: Thank you, your Honor.
THE COURT: You're welcome.

I n sider Trading Scheme
General Overview
17. Based on all of the sources of information
referenced herein, including all of the facts and circumstances
described in detail below, I have p r obable cause to believe the
following:
8
a. From at least in or about January 2006 through
in or about July 2007, RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant, the CW, and
o thers known and tmknown, participated in a scheme to defraud by
disclosing material, nonpublic information (the "Inside
Information") and/or executing securities transactions based on
Inside Information pertaining to at least the following three
publicly traded companies: Polycom, Hilton Hotels Corp. ("Hilton")
and Google Inc. ("Google"). The means by which RAJARATNAM and the
CW effectuated the fraudulent scheme were as follows : The CW
obtained Inside Information regarding Polycom, Hilton and Google
from various sources who disclosed the Inside Information in
violation of duties of trust and confidence. The CW communicated
this Inside Information to RAJARATNAM, who caused the Galleon
Technology Funds to execute securities transactions on the basis
of this Inside Information, earning a total profit of more than
$12.7 million from the scheme. In exchange, RAJARATNAM provided
the CW with Inside Information regarding other technology
companies.
b. From at least in or about March 2008 through in
or about October 2008, RAJ RAJARATNAM and RAJIV GOEL, the
defendants, and others known and unknown, participated in a scheme
to defraud by disclosing Inside Information and/or executing
securities transactions based on Inside Information pertaining to
at least Clearwire, a publicly traded company. The means by which
RAJARATNAM and GOEL effectuated .the fraudulent scheme were as
follows: GOEL obtained Inside Information regarding investments
made by his employer, Intel Capital, including an investment made
by Intel Capital in Clearwire in or about the spring of 2008.
GOEL provided this Inside Information to RAJARATNAM in violation
of duties of trust and confidence owed to Intel Capital.
RAJA.RATNAM then caused the Galleon Technology Funds to execute
securities transactions on the basis of this Inside Information,
earning a total profit of approximately $579,000 from the scheme.
In exchange, RAJARATNAM placed profitable trades for the benefit
of GOEL in a personal brokerage account maintained by GOEL at
Charles Schwab. For example, as discussed further below, in or
about October 2008, RAJARATNAM executed a profitable trade in
PeopleSupport stock in GOEL's personal brokerage account based on
Inside Information that RAJARATNAM learned from his colleague at
Galleon who sat on PeopleSupport's Board of Dire ctors.
c. From at least in or about July 2008 through in
or about October 2008, RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant, CC-1 and
others known and unknown, part icipated in a scheme to defraud by
disclosing Inside Information and/or executing securities
transactions based on Inside Information pertaining to at least
9
the following two · publicly traded companies: Akamai and AMD. The
means by which RAJARATNA.t1 and CC-1 effectuated the fraudulent
scheme were a.s follows: RAJARATNAM and CC-1 obtained Inside
Information regarding Akamai and AMD from various inside sources
who disclosed the Inside Information in violation of duties of
trust and confidence. CC-1 communicated Inside Information
regarding Akamai to RAJARATNAM. In addition, RAJARATNAM and CC-1
provided one another with Inside Information regarding AND.
RAJARATNAM caused the Galleon Technology Funds to execute
securities transactions on the basis of this Inside Information,
earning a total profit of approximately $3.5 million from the
scheme.
d . From at least in or about August 2008 through
in or about October 2008, RAJ RAJARATNAM and ANIL KUMAR, the
defendants, and others   and unknown, participated in a scheme
to defraud by disclosing Inside Information and/or executing
securities transactions based on Inside Information pertaining to
at least AMD. The means by which RAJARATNAM and KUMAR effectuated
the fraudulent scheme were as follows: KUMAR obtained Inside
Information regarding certain of McKinsey's clients, including
communicated the Inside Information regarding AMD to
RAJARATNAM in violation of duties of trust and confidence mved to
McKinsey and its clients. RAJARATNAM then caused the Galleon
Technology Funds to execute securities transactions based on the
Inside Information. KUMAR stood to benefit from RAJARATNAM's
trading because he was a direct or indirect investor in one or
more hedge funds affiliated with Galleon.
The CW's Interactions with RAJARATNAM
18. Beginning in or about November 2007, I and other
FBI agents have had numerous discussions with the CW, an
individual who subsequently began cooperating with law
enforcement.
1
As discussed further below, the CW's cooperation
included making consensual recordings of four telephone
conversations between the CW and RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant.
The CW is an individual who executed securities
transactions based on material, nonpublic information . The cw
has agreed to plead guilty to charges of conspiracy and
securities fraud in connection with this conduct and to cooperate
with the Government in the hope 9f receiving a reduced sentence.
The CW has been cooperating with the FBI since in or about
November 2007. The information the cw has provided has been
corroborated by, among other things, trading records, pen
register data, and telephone records.
10
Based on a review of trading records and other documents, the
consensually recorded telephone conversations between the CW and
RAJARATNAM, as well as information provided by the CW, I believe
that since at l east in or about 2006, RAJARATNAM and the CW
participated in an insider trading scheme in which RAJARATNAM and
the cw provided to one another Inside Information that each of
them had received from other sources, to enable one another to
execute trades based on that information. The CW provided
RAJARATNAM with Inside Information regarding various publicly
traded companies, including, among others, Polycom, Hilton and
Google. In exchange, RAJARATNAM provided the CW with nonpublic
earnings information on a number of companies, including, but not
limited to, · Intel . After receiving the Inside Information
relating to Polycom, Hilton and Google, RAJARATNAM executed trades
in the respective securities of those companies.
19. Based on my discussions with the CW, I understand
that, beginning in or about mid- 2005, the CW contacted RAJ
RAJARATNAM, the defendant, to inquire a bout potential empl oyment
at Galleon.
2
During one of their conversa tions, RAJARATNAM asked
the CW to identify the companies concerning which the C\v had an
"edge . " Based on the CW's previous relationship with RAJARATNAM,
the CW understood RAJARATNAM to be asking the cw to identify the
companies from which, or about which, the CW was able to r eceive
Inside Information. RAJARATNAM had previously told the cw that he
had inside sources at various companies including Intel.
RAJARATNAM told the CW that he received Inside Information about
these companies. In an effort to secure employment at Galleon,
the CW told RAJARATNN4 that s/he had an edge on Polycom. At that
time the CW was associated with a Polycom executive (the "Polycom
Executive") who had previously provided the CW with Inside
Information about Polycom's quarterly earnings resul ts.
20 . Based on my discussions with the cw, I understand
that in a series of subsequent conversations with RAJ RAJARATNAM,
the defendant, in or about 2006 and 2007, the cw provided
RAJARATNAM with Inside Information, including information on
Polycom, Hilton and Google. In exchange, RAJARATNAM provided the
CW with Inside Information on a number of companies.
Interception of Wire Communications
21. In connection with the invest igation, on or about
March 7, 2008, and on certain dates thereafter, the FBI obtained
2
The CW has known RAJARATNAM since in or about the rnid-
1990s in connection with the CW s prior employment.
11
court orders authorizing interception of communications over a
cell phone used by RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant (the "Rajaratnam
Cell Phone''). As discussed further below, a number of the
intercepted calls consist of RAJARATNAM either providing,
receiving, or seeking Inside Information about various publicly
traded companies.
3
22. Also in connection with the investigation, on or
about August 13, 2008, and then again on September 12, 2008, the
FBI obtained court orders authorizing interception of
communications over (i) a landline used by CC-1 ( "CC-1 Landline
A"); (ii) a second landline used by CC-1 ("CC-1 Landline B"); and
(iii) a cell phone us.ed by cc-1 (the "CC-1 Cell Phone;" cc-1
Landline A, CC-1 Landline B and the CC-1 cell Phone are referred
to, collectively, as the "CC-1 Phones"). As discussed further
below, a number of the intercepted calls consist of CC-1 either
providing, receiving, or seeking Inside Information about various
publicly traded companies.
Insider Trading in the Securities of Polycom
23. Based on my review of documents provided by
Polycom, I have learned that, at all times relevant to this
Complaint, the Polycom Executive was employed by Polycom.
Polycom's "Insider Trading Policy," which applies to all
employees, officers and directors of Polycom, among others,
provides that "the disclosure of material nonpublic information to
others who then trade in [Polycom] 's securities, is prohibited by
the federal and state securities laws.
11
The policy further
provides: "No Insider shall disclose (' t i p') Material Nonpublic
Information to any other person (including family members) where
such information may be used by such person to his or her profit
by trading in the securities of companies to which such
information relates . . . . " The policy provides that information may
be "Material Nonpubl ic Information" if "there is a reasonable
likelihood that it would be considered important to an investor in
making an investment decision regarding the purchase or sale of
the company's Securities." The policy further provides examples
of such information, including: "(f]inancial results" and
"[p]rojections of future revenues, earnings or losses, or other
earnings guidance . "
The summaries of the intercepted calls that are set
forth in this affidavit are based on prelimina.ry draft
transcripts prepared from the recordings, which I have reviewed
and which are subject to revision.

·.
24. Based on my review of documents obtained from
Polycom, I have learned that in late December 2005 and early
January 2006, the Polycom Executive obtained Inside Information
relating to Polycom's revenue for the quarter ending on December
31, 2005, and the company's sales forecasts of anticipated
bookings (the "Polycom Inside Information").
25. Based on conversations with the CW, I have learned
that in or about January 2006, the Polycom Executive related
Polycom Inside Information to the CW. Specifically, the Polycom
Executive informed the CW that Polycom's revenue for the quarter
ending December 31, 2005 was strong. When told what analysts'
expectations were for Polycom's revenue for the quarter ending in
December 2005, the Polycom Executive told the CW that Polycom
would beat analysts' expectations.
26. The CW informed me that the Polycom Executive
provided the Polycom Inside Information to the CW because the two
were friends, and because the Polycom Executive anticipated that
the CW would repay the CW for money that the CW had lost executing
securities transactions in the Polycom Executive's personal
brokerage account.
27. Based on conversations with the CW, I have learned
that in or about January 2006, the CW provided the Polycom Inside
Information that s/he had obtained from the Polycom Executive to
RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant. Specifically, the CW informed
RAJARATNAM that Polycom's revenue for the quarter ending December
2005 was going to be good and that guidance regarding its
performance in the quarter ending in March 2006 would be good.
The CW also indicated to RAJARATNAM that s/he had a source at
Polycom.
28. Based on my review of documents provided by
Galleon, Instinet (an electronic securities market for
institutional investors), Galleon's prime broker, and certain
telephone records, I have learned the following:
a. On or about January 9, 2006, at approximately
2:47 p.m.,
4
the cw sent the following instant message to RAJ
RAJARATNAM, the defendant: "donot (sic] buy plcm till i het [sic]
guidance; want to make sure guidance OK." Based on conversations
with the CW, I learned that the CW meant that RAJARATNAM should
not buy Polycom stock until the CW obtained material, nonpublic
4
Unless otherwise noted, all times that appear
throughout this Complaint are reflected in Eastern Standard Time.
13
information regarding the guidance that Polycom planned to
announce regarding its anticipated performance for the quarter
ending in March 2006.
b. On or about January 10, 2006, at approximately
10:59 a.m., a telephone call was made from a cell phone subscribed
to the CW to the Rajaratnam Cell Phone, which lasted one minute.
c. On or about January 10, 2006, at approximately
11:43 a.m., RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant
1
caused the Galleon
Technology Funds to purchase 7
1
500 shares of Polycom stock at an
average price of $16.70 per share .
d. On or about January 11, 2006, at approximately
6:01p.m. Pacific Time r a telephone call was made from a cell
phone used by the Polycom Executive (and subscribed to Po lycom) to
the CW' s home phone/   approximately six minutes.
e. On or about January 12, 2006, at approximately
10 : 30 a.m., the CW sent the following instant message to RAJ
RAJARATNAM, the defendant: "hi; u there?"
.
f . On or about January 12, 2006, at approximately
10:33 a.m.
1
RAJARATNAM sent the following instant message to a
trader for the Galleon Technology Funds: "buy 60 PLCM." Based on
my rev iew· of account records pertaining to the Galleon Technology
Funds, and my understanding that "PLCM" is the trading symbol for
Polycom
1
I believe that RAJARATNAM was instructing his trader to
purchase 60,000 shares of Polycom for the Galleon Technology
Funds.
g. Between on or about January 11, 2006 and on or
about January 25, 2006
1
RAJARATNAM caused the Galleon Technology
Funds to purchase approximately 237,500 shares of Polycom stock at
prices ranging from $l6.50 to $16.86 per share, as well as 500
February $17. 50 call options
5
in Polycom for a total price of
approximately $38,000 .
5
A "call option" gives the purchaser the right to buy a
certain number of shares (typically 100 shares) of an underlying
security at a specified price, until the specified expiration
date of the call option (typically the third Friday of a
specified month). Thus, a "February $17.50 call option// in
Polycom gives the purchaser of the option the right to buy 100
shares of Polycom stock from the seller of the option at a price
of $17 . 50 per share, until the third Friday of  
14
29. Based on my review of public records and news
reports, I have learned .that Polycom announced its quarterly
earnings after the market closed on January 25, 2006 . Revenue for
the quarter was $156.1 million, which beat analysts' expectations
of $150.9 million. On the following day, Polycom's stock price
opened at $18.30 per share, up approximately 8 percent ($1.32}
over the previous day's close.
30. Based on my review of account records for the
Galleon Technology Funds, I have learned that during the period
from on or about January 26, 2006 to on or about February 15,
2006, RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant, caused the Galleon Technology
Funds to sell all of the Polycom shares and call options purchased
by RAJARATNAM beginning on or about January 10, 2006, for a total
profit of approximately $700,000.
Insider Trading in the Securities of Hilton
31. Based on my training, experience, and review of
public articles, I have learned that public companies retain
credit ratings agencies ( "CRAs") such as Moody's Investors
service, Inc. ("Moody's") to provide credit ratings. I have
learned that public companies that retain CRAs entrust the CRAs
and their employees with material, nonpublic information.
32. Based on documents provided by Moody's, I have
learned that in 2007, an Associate Analyst employed at Moody's
(the "Moody's Analyst") was involved in Moody's rating of Hilton.
Based on my training, experience, and review of public articles, I
believe that as an employee of Moody's, the Moody's Analyst owed
duties of trust and confidence not to disclose for personal gain
material, nonpublic information regarding Moody's and its clients.
33. Based on document s provided by Hilton and Moody's,
I have learned that on or about July 2, 2007, at approximately
2:20p.m., certain executives of Hilton placed a phone call to a
Vice President and Senior Analyst at Moody's who served as Moody' s
Lead Analyst for its rating of Hilton. During the call, which
l asted approximately seven minutes , the Hilton executives informed
Moody's that Hilton would be acquired by the Blackstone Group LP
("Blackstone"), and that Hilton would likely announce the
acquisition sometime before July 4, 2007 (the "Hilton Inside
Information") .
34. Based on my conversations with the CW, I have
learned that on or about July 2, 2007, the Moody's Analyst told
the cw that Hilton was going to be taken private (meaning it would
be acquired and thereby become a private company) the following
15
day at a price substantially above its publicly traded stock
price.
35 . I have reviewed phone records from a
telecommunications company for a cell phone used by the Moody's
Analyst at all times relevant to this Complaint (the "Moody's Cell
Phone"}. Consistent with what the CW told me, t hese phone records
show that on or about July 2, 2007, at approximately 3:06p.m. , a
telephone call was made from the Moody's Cell Phone to the CW's
home phone, lasting approximately one minute. A second such call
was made at approximately 3:10p.m. , lasting approximately two
minutes. A third such call was made at approximately 3:14p.m.,
lasting approximately one minute.
36. Based on conversations with the CW, I learned that
on or about July 2, 2007, the CW provided Hilton Inside
Information to RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant. Specifically, the
CW informed R   J   R   T N ~ ~ that Hilton was going to be taken private
and that it was a "sure thing." The CW informed RAJARATNAM that
the source of the Hilton Inside Information was very good. The CW
further informed me that RAJARATNAM understood that the CW was
providing him with Inside Information.
37 . Based on my review of account records for the
Galleon Technology Funds, I have learned that on July 3, 2007, RAJ
RAJARATNAM, the defendant, caused the Galleon Technology Funds to
purchase 400 , 000 shares of Hilton stock at an average price of
approximately $35.13 per share.
38. Based on my review of public records and news
reports, I have learned that on July 3, 2007, fol lowing the close
of the market, Hilton announced that it had agreed to be acquired
by Blackstone for $20 .1 billion in cash, and that Blackstone had
agreed to buy all outstanding shares of Hilton for $47.50 per
share, representing a premium of approximately $10 per share.
39. Based on my review of account records for the
Galleon Technology Funds, I learned that on July 5, 2007 and July
16, 2007, RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant, caused the Galleon
Technology Funds to sell all 400,000 shares of Hilton stock,
collectively, at prices ranging from $45 . 25 to $45 . 63 per share,
for a profit of approximately $4 million.
40. Based on conversations with the CW, I learned that
following the announcement that Blackstone would acquire Hilton,
the CW arranged to pay the Moody's Analyst $10,000 in exchange for
the Hilton Inside Information.
16
Insider Tradi ng in the Securities of Google
41. Based on my training, experience, and review of
public news articles, I have learned that public companies retain
third party investor relations firms such as Market Street
Partners ("Market Street") to assist in preparing and distributing
quarterly earnings announcement s and other press releases. I have
learned that public companies that retain outside investor
relations firms entrust the firms and their employees with
material, nonpublic information.
42. Based on conversations with the CW and my review of
public information available over the Internet, I have learned
that during certain times relevant to this Complaint, the CW was
in contact with an employee of Market Street (the "Market Street
Employee"). Based on my training and experience, I believe that
as an employee of Market Street, the Market Street Employee owed
duties of trust and confidence not to disclose for personal gain
material, nonpublic information regarding Market Street and its
clients.
43. Based on documents provided by Google that I have
reviewed, I · learned that Google retained Market Street to provide
investor relations services with respect to Google's earnings
release for the quarter ending June 30, 2007. On or before July
2, 2007, Google communicated to Market Street certain material,
nonpublic information regarding its performance for the quarter
ending in June 2007 (the "Google Inside Information").
44. Based on my conversations with the CW, I learned
that on or before July 12, 2007, the Market Street Employee
communi cated the Google Inside Information to the CW by tel l ing
the CW that Google's earnings per share for the quarter ending in
June 2007 would fall below analysts' expectations. The Market
Street Employee informed the CW that s/he was able to obtain this
material, nonpublic information because Google was one of his/ her
accounts at Market Street. The Market Street Employee provided
the material, nonpublic information to the CW as part of his/ her
efforts to find hedge funds or other persons or entities willing
to pay him/ her for Inside Information in the future.
45 . Based on conversations wi t h the CW, I have learned
that in or about July 2007, the CW provided Google Inside
Information to RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant, prior to Google's
earnings announcement. The cw told RAJARATNAM that Google's
earnings per share for the quar ter ending June 30, 2007 would be
below analysts' expectations. The CW informed RAJARATNAM that the
17
source of the Googl e Inside Information was an individual who
I
worked at an investor relations firm.
46. My review of phone records associated with the CW
show that on or about July 10, 2007, at approximately 11:44 p.m.
Pacific Time, a telephone call was made from CW's home phone to a
phone number used by the rvrarket Street Employee, lasting
approximately 16 minutes. Other phone records I have reviewed
show that or about July 17 , 2007, at approximately 7:17a.m., a
telephone call was made from the Rajaratnam Cell Phone to CW's
home phone, lasting approximately five minutes.
47. Based on my review of account records for the
Galleon Technology Funds, I learned the following:
a. On or about July 17 , 2007, RAJ RAJARATNJl..M, the
defendant, caused the Galleon Technology Funds to purchase 1,000
July $550 put options
6
in Google for a total price o f
approximately $984,430, and to sell short 25,000 shares of Google
stock at an average price of $555.84 per share.

8
c. On or about July 19, 2007, RAJARATNAM caused
the Galleon Technology Funds to sell short 100,000 shares of
Google at an average price of $549.44 per share.

A "put option" typically gives the purchaser the right to
sell a certain number of shares ( typically 100 shares) of an
underlying security at a specified price, until the specified
expiration date of the put option (typically the third Friday of
a specified month). Thus, a "July $550 put option" in Google
gives the purchaser of the option the right to sell 100 shares of
Google stock to the seller of the option at a price of $550 per
share, until the third Friday of July. The put options in Google
purchased by RAJARATNAM that are described above expired on
Friday, July 20, 2007.
7
RAJARATNAM also caused the Galleon Technology Funds to
purchase Google put options a few days prior to July 17.

RAJJlJRATNAM also sold 500 July $550
Galleon Technology Funds on July 18,
  ~ approximately $216 ,274.

Google put options
2007, realizing a
48 . Based on my review of public records and news
reports, I have learned that on July 19, 2007, fol lowing the close
of the market, Google announced its earnings for the quarter
ending June 30, 2007. Whereas analysts expected Google t ·o earn
$3.59 per s hare, Google announced earnings of onl y $2.93 per
share , or $3.56 per share if not for costs associated wi th
employee stock compensation. On July 20, 2007, Google stock
opened at $511.90 per share, down approximately 7 percent ($36.69)
from the previous day's close.
49 . Based on my review of account records for the
Galleon Technology Funds, I have learned that following the
earnings announcement by Google, RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant,
caused the Galleon Technology Funds to cover the short positions
in Google described above, and to either exercise or sell the put
options in Google described above, for a profit o f approximately
$8 million.
50. Based on convers a tions with the CW, I learned that
the CW informed RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant, that his/he r source
of the Googl e Inside Information wanted to be paid for material,
nonpublic information going forward . The cw subsequently told
RAJARATNAM that his/ her source of the Google Inside Information
had stopped talking to him/ her. On or about January 14 , 2008,
during a phone call between RAJARATNAM and the CW that was
consensually recorded by the cw, RAJARATNAM asked the CW whether
s / he had heard anything about Google . The cw replied, "I told you
that lady won't speak to me . " RAJARATNAM replied, "Idiot . "
Insider Trading in the Securit ies of Clearwire
51. As is further described below, I believe that RAJIV
GOEL, the defendant, obtained Inside Information in the course of
his employment with Intel regarding an investment made by Intel
into Clearwire, and that GOEL provided this Inside Information to
RAJARATNAM for purposes of executing securities transactions .
52. Based on documents provided by Intel, I have
learned that the Intel Code of Conduct provides: "Any Intel
employee who possesses material, non-public information regarding
Intel or any other company must not ... 'tip' others who may buy or
sell securities because of the inside information. " Intel advises
its employees that "material" information may include "financial
results" and "news of the disposition or acquisition of
significant assets."
53. Based on my review of public records, news reports,
telephone records, account records for the Galleon Technology
19
Funds, and intercepted wire communications occur ring over the
Rajaratnam Cell Phone, I have learned the following:
a. On or about March 19, _ 2008, at approximately
7:54p.m., RAJIV GOEL, the defendant, called the Rajaratnam Cell
Phone and left a voicemail for RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant,
saying: ~   e y RAJ. This is RAJIV. Uh, hey, just called to say
you're a good man, ok . Give me a call whenever you get a chance . "
Five minutes later, on or about March 19, 2008, at approximately
8:00p. m., RAJARATNAM used the Rajaratnam Cell Phone to call GOEL.
During the call, GOEL told RAJARATNAM: "I tell you the Sprint
thing is not happening in the short term, ok . There is a board
meeting. . . in fact today. . . it's not happening today at the board
meeting.u RAJARATNAM replied "Ok
11
and thanked GOEL. Based on my
review of information that became public subsequent to this call,
and as discussed further below, I believe GOEL's reference to "the
Sprint thingu to be a reference to a transaction involving Intel,
Sprint, and other companies in which a large investment would be
made in Clearwire.
b. On or about March 20, 2008, at approximately
9:05p.m. , RAJARATNAM made an outgoing call over the Rajaratnam
Cell Phone to GOEL. During the call, RAJARATNAM and GOEL spoke
about various ways to calculate the value for the "new entity
11
(referring to the new Clearwire Corp. that would emerge from a
possible business transaction involving Intel, Sprint, Clearwire,
and other companies) based on material, nonpublic information
discussed during the call concerning the size of the investment
that would be made in Clearwire. Specifically, GOEL asked
RAJARATNAM if he had digested the information GOEL had given him.
RAJARATNAM responded that he had, and then proceeded to articulate
how he "would analyze it." RAJARATNAM concluded that Clearwire's
"stock is going to trade somewhere between 16 and 20 [dollars per
share]." RAJARATNAM and GOEL reached this conclusion by
extrapolating the value of Clearwire from the equity stake Intel
would be receiving in exchange for its investment in Clearwire.
For example, in reaching this conclusion, RAJARATNAM and GOEL
discussed, among other things, that Clearwire would receive an
infusion of approximately $1 billion from Intel, that Intel would
receive a ten percent stake in the new entity, and that the new
entity "will have $3.5 billion in cash" in addition to the "$1.2
billion in cash" the entity already had, for a total of "$4.7
[billion] in cash. " GOEL then told RAJARATNAM that there are
"gonna be such heavyweights on the Board [of the new entity] , it's
not even funny." GOEL listed the names of a number of executives
at major corporations whom he said would be on the board of the
new entity. GOEL then told RAJARATNAM he would call him from a
different phone because they had a bad connection. Based on my
20
review of public information pertaining to a transa.ction involving
Clearwire, Intel , and other companies, the information discussed
by RAJARATNAM and GOEL rel ating to Clear wire's cash position and
its dealings with Intel and other entities constituted material,
nonpublic information.
c. On or about Thursday, March 20, 2008, at
appr oximately 9:11p.m. , RAJARATNAM received an incoming call on
the Rajaratnam Cell Phone from GOEL. GOEL asked RAJARATNAM to get
him a job with "one of your powerful friends," adding that he was
"tired" of working at Intel. Later, GOEL and RAJARATNAM continued
their conversation about the possible business deal involving
Intel, .spr int, Cl earwire, and other companies. GOEL t old
  that if GOEL heard "anything about Intel or , or even
about that, you know, the, the deal, I'll give you." RAJARATNAM
responded: "April 1st, right?" GOEL said, '' yeah but you know these
deals. Don't hold me to that date because these deals they're so
complex and so many part ies involved they will all have their say
right now. But yesterday our Board approved this deal."
d. On Friday, March 21, 2008, the NASDAQ stock
market , on which Clearwire trades, was closed. On or about
Monday, March 24, 2008, RAJARATNA!-1 caused the Galleon Technol ogy
Funds to purchase approximately 125,800 shares of Clearwire stock
at prices ranging from $10.95 to $11.74 share.
e. On or about March 24, 2008, a t approximately
7 :59p. m., RAJARATNAM received a call over the Rajaratnam Cell
Phone from GOEL. During the call they discussed the transaction
involving Intel, Sprint, Clearwire, and other companies, and GOEL
told RAJARATNAM he wanted to explain why he thought RAJARATNAM' s
valuation was incorrect. GOEL told RAJARATNAM to call him i n an
hour at home because, ''I don't like talking over cell phone on
this . " I believe that GOEL was continuing to discuss with
RAJARATNAM Inside Information about the proposed deal involving
Intel, Sprint, Clearwire and other companies, but that he did not
want to talk to RAJARATNAM on his cell phone because he was
nervous about doing so.
f. On or about March 25, 2008 , RAJARATNAM caused
the Galleon Technology Funds to purchase approximately 136,000
shares of Clearwire stock at $12.04 per share.
g. On or about March 25 , 2008 , aft er the close of
the market, news reports indicated that Comcast and Time Warner
were in discussions with Clearwire and Sprint regarding the
creation of a joint venture to operate a high- speed nationwide
wireless network . The news articles indicated that Sprint and
21
Cleanvire "are now trying to raise at least $3 billion" for the
joint venture. The news reports further indicated that "Intel has
signaled willingness to put in about $1 billion or more.
119
h. On or about March 25, 2008, at approximately
8:22p.m., RAJARATNAM made an outgoing call over the Rajaratnam
Cell Phone to an individual that I believe is employed by or
affiliated with Galleon (the "Galleon Employee"). During the
call, the Galleon Employee said to RAJARATNAM: "We're fucked
man .... It just hit the Wall Street Journal." RAJARATNAM asked
the Galleon Employee what s/he was referring to and the Galleon
Employee replied: "the Clearwi re stuff. It 's all over the \.ilall
Street Journal.
11
RAJARATNAM asked, "What price did they say?"
The Galleon Employee answered: "They're short on details but they
kinda say, you know, they're looking to raise as much as $3
billion but they don't have any of the equity splits. But they
named Comcast, they named Time Warner, Clearwire and Sprint."
RAJARATN.A..M replied, "Okay, shit." The Galleon Employee then said
"I don' t know how much we got in today . .. .
11
Based on the
statements made during this call by the participants, as well as
my training, experience and other intercepted calls I have
reviewed during the investigation, I believe that the Galleon
Employee and RAJARATNAM were discussing the proposed transaction
involving Intel, Sprint, Clearwire and other companies, about
which RAJARATNAM had received inside information from GOEL. I
also believe that when the Galleon Employee said s/he did not know
"how much we got in today," s/he meant that s/he did not know how
much stock RAJARATNAM and the Galleon Employee were able to
purchase that day in advance of the news of the possible
transaction hitting the newspaper.
i. The market for the securities of Clearwire
responded positively to the news articles published on the evening
of March 25, 2008. on March 26, 2008, Clearwire stock opened at a
price of $15.85 per share, up approximately 18 percent ($2 .46)
over the previous day's close.
j. On or about March 26, 2008, RAJARATNAM caused
the Galleon Technology Funds to sell 68, 000 shares of Clean-1ire
stock at a price of $15.55 per share. The Galleon Technology

The transaction would not be announced by the parties
involved until several weeks later. Specifically, on or about
May 7, 2008, Clearwire announced that it would combine its
wireless broadband unit with that of Sprint Nextel. A group of
outside investors would infuse $3 . 2 billion in the company, which
infusion included a $1 billion investment by Intel .
22
Funds also purchased additional shares of Clearwire stock on March
26, 2008.
k. On or about April 2, 2008, RAJARATNAM caused
the Galleon Technology Funds to sell 44,200 shares of Clearwire
stock at a price of $14.26 per share.
1. On or about April 15, 2008, at approximately
6:40p.m., RAJARATNAM received an incoming call over the
Rajaratnam Cell Phone from GOEL. Referring to the transaction
involving Clearwire, GOEL told RAJARATNAM: "Listen ... I'm still in
the middle of that conversation, we had a break. But, that stuff
is not, uhh, happening as planned. [There are) some major bumps
on the way. Ok?" RAJARATNAM replied, "Ok." GOEL said he would
call RAJARATNAM from home that evening.
m. On or about April 18, 2008, RAJARATNAM caused
the Galleon Technology Funds to sell 149,600 shares of Clearwire
stock at a price of $13.25 per share. Profit in the Galleon
Technology Funds based on the sales of March 26, 2008, April 2,
2008, and April 18 , 2008, as described above, totaled
approximately $579,000 .
Insider Trading in the Securities of Akamai
54. Based on my review of phone records, public records
available over the Internet, and intercepted calls, I believe that
during certain times relevant to this Complaint, CC-1 was in
contact with an individual who was employed by Akamai (the "Akamai
Executive").
55 . Based on my review of public records available over
the Internet, I have learned that Akamai's Code of Business
Conduct and Ethics, which applies to all Akamai employees,
provides: "It is a conflict of interest, and illegal, if
investment activity that benefits you (or a relative or other
person with whom you have a personal relationship), actually is,

Insider Trading in the Securities of AMD
57. Based on my review of documents provided by the SEC
and Galleon, I learned that during all times relevant to this
Complaint, ANIL KUMAR, the defendant, was employed by McKinsey as
a Director. Based on my training, experience, and review of
public records available over the Internet, I believe that as an
employee of McKinsey, KUMAR owed duties of trust and confidence
not to disclose for personal gain material, nonpublic information
regarding McKinsey and its clients.
58 . Based on my review of documents provided by
25
Galleon, I learned that KUMAR, the defendant, was a direct or
indirect investor in certain hedge funds managed by Galleon.
59. Based on my review of public records, news reports,
telephone records, documents provided by AMD and the SEC, account
records for the Galleon Technology Funds and other accounts
managed by Galleon, and intercepted communications occurring over
the Rajaratnam Cell Phone and the CC-1 Phones, I have learned the
following:
a. In or about June 2008, AMD entered into
exclusive negotiations with investors based in Abu Dhabi over a
deal pursuant to which AMD would keep its design business but spin
off its manufacturing bus.Lness, referred to as the "fab" business,
into a separate entity (the "AMD Reorganization"). Also in or

Related Interests

lith IBM. Based on intercepted wire
communications, I learned that IBM was involved in the A}ID
Reorganization because the new, separate entity containing AMD's
fab needed to obtain a license from IBM to use cer tain IBM
technology. CC- 1 said that s/he had heard from IBM t hat t he
transaction involving AMD "will get done on [September) 9th," but
that the AMD Executive had told him/her "mid-September or
something like that." RAJARATNAM informed CC-1 that "yesterday

buying shares of AMD. RAJARATNAM asked whether the AMD Executive
would give CC-1 " the full low down," and CC-1 replied, "Oh yeah .
Plus IBM will, too." RAJARATNAM and CC-1 then discussed an IBM

Master Fund, SPC Ltd., Asia Spec. Ops. ," for $5.81 per share.
j . On or about August 19, 2008, at approximately
2:52p.m., RAJARATNAM received a call on the Rajaratnam Cell Phone
from CC-1. CC-1 indi cated that s/he had spoken 11rith the AMD
Executive, who told him/her that "vlall Street will be shocked,"
and that AMD will "definitely make the announcement ... before they
print [quarterl y earnings], but it'll be end of September,
probably." Later RAJARATNAM said, "Betv1een my guy and your guy we
can nail this . " CC-1 and RAJARATNAM discussed the importance of
keeping the information confidential. CC-1 said that "if it
leaks, I think I'm out of business .. . because ... who knows
IBM? And who, who's in bed with AMD? Put [CC-1)'s name on the
fuckin' ticket."
k. On or about August 26, 2008, at approximately
10:47 a.m. , RAJARATNAM called CC-1 on CC-1 Landline B. CC-1 and
RAJARATNAM discussed certain details regarding the transaction
involving AMD. RAJARATNAM said that he had heard that the
investors would pay $1.2 billion to increase their ownership in
AMD to 20 percent, and then would invest six to eight billion
dollars in the "fab," which will be owned "SO/SO" by AMD and the
investors . RAJARATNAM also told CC-1 that AMD is anticipating
quarterly revenue for the current quarter to be "1560" {which I
believe refers to $1.56 billion), whereas analysts were expecting
revenue of only "1480" (which I believe refers to $1.48 billion).
CC-1 later asked, "If the two of us weren't close to the company
as we are, would you be long the stock?" RAJARATNAM replied,
"Yeah, no. I wouldn't." CC-l said that s / he "wouldn't of
touch[ed) it with a fucking 10-foot pole."

m. On or about August 27, 2008, at approximately
1:11 p.m., RAJARATNAM called CC-1 on CC-1 Landline B. CC-1 said
that s/he "could get fucked if [AMD stock) is up 30 percent."
Based on my experience and my review of other intercepted
communications, I believe that CC- 1 meant that s/he was afraid
that if AMD were up 30 percent, s / he would make so much money that
his/her trading might attract the attention of regulators. CC-1
asked RAJARATNAM if s/he should be "showing a pattern of trading"
AMD stock. RAJARATNAM said, "I think you should buy and sell, and
buy and sell." He also emphasized the importance of remaining
28
quiet: "On Akamai or IBH, anything , be radio silent. Like, you
know, I get shit on lots of companies." CC- 1 r eplied, "I'm radio
silent.''

RAJARATNAM on the Rajaratnam Cell Phone. S/he told RAJARATNAM
that the AMD Executive said that the deal would be announced
during the first week of October. CC-1 a lso said that the AMD
Executive described the deal as "unbelievable. "
q. On or about September 23, 2008, at
approximately 1:25 p.m., RAJARATNAM called CC-1 on CC-1 Landline
A. RAJARATNAM and CC-1 discussed the timing of the announcement
of the AMD Reorganization. Later, told CC-1 , "I have
their numbers." Based on my experience and on other intercepted
wire communications, I believe that RAJARATNAM meant that he had
obtained material, nonpublic information regarding AMD's
for the quarter ending in September 2008. RAJARATNAM proceeded to
tell CC-1 that AMD's quarterly revenue was "1600" (which I believe
refers to $1 . 6 billion), that "processors" accounted for "1040"
($1 .04 billion), and that "graphics" accounted for "315" ($315
million) . RAJARATNAM told CC-1 that s / he "came to the right place
to get that information. Tell me I'm the best in AMD.... You
might know [the AMD Executive] or whoever. . . I wanted to compete
\•lith you in your home yard, in your backyard.. . . I must defer to
you on IBM." CC-1 replied, "And   too." RJI •. JARATNAM
replied, ''Akamai , too. But AMD? Bring it on baby."
r. On or about September 29 , 2008 , at
approximately 7:15p.m., KUMAR called RAJARATNAM on the Rajaratnam
Cell Phone and left a voicemail. KUI'vlAR said, "I have the
information you wanted."
s. On or about September 30, 2008, at
approximately 2:21p.m., RAJARATNAM called CC- 1 on CC-1 Landline
A. Referring to the announcement of the AMD Reorganization,
RAJARATNAM told CC-1 , "the date is October 7th ." CC-1 later said
that s / he was "glad that we talk on a secure line, I appreciate
29
that.
11
CC-1 said that s/he was   about being
investigated. RAJARATNAM adv ised CC-1 to buy share s of stock
and then to sell half before the announcement.
t. I n or about September 20081 RAJARATNAM caused
the Galleon Technology Funds and other affiliated hedge fund s to
purchas e millions of shares of stock in AMD . For e xample, on
September 30 , 2008 , RAJARATNAM caused the Galleon Technology Funds
to purchase 375,000 shares of at a price of $4 .98 per shar e.
At the end of September 2008, the Galleon Technology Offshore Fund
a lone held approximately eight million shares of AMD.
u. On Oct ober 7
1
2 008, at approximately 8:00a.m. ,
AMD announced plans to spin off its manufacturing · operations in
the form of a multibillion-dollar joint venture with the Advanced
Technology Investment Company of Abu Dhabi ( "ATIC") . In exchange
for 56 percent o .f the fab (SO percent voting rights), ATIC would
pay $700 million to AMD1 and the fab would assume $1.2 billion of
AMD debt . In additi on, a different entity (also based in Abu
Dhabi ) would increase its investment in AHD to 19.3 percent. ATIC
committed to putting in to the fab at least $3.6 billion, and as
much as $6 billion, of additional funds over fiv e years.
v. On October 7, 2008, at approximatel y 9:30a.m.,
AMD s t ock opened trading at a price of $5.27 per share , up
approximately 25 percent ($1.04) over the prev ious day's closing
price of $4. 23 per s har e.
60. Based on my review of account statements and news
articles, as well as on intercepted wire communications , I believe
that the Galleon Technology Funds did not profit much, if at all ,
from the trading in AMD stock described above due in part to t he
global f inancial crisis that precipitated a broad decline in stock
markets in or about September and October 2008. Between the date
on which t he Galleon Technology Funds began to acquire shares o f
AMD stock (August 15, 2008 ) , and the eve of the announcement of
the AMD Reorganization (October 6, 2008) , shares of AMD stock fell
f rom approximately $5 . 87 per share to $4 . 23 per share (28
percent ) . The announcement of the AMD Reorganization caused the
share price to open up approximately 25 percent (at $5.27 per
share) , but the v alue of AMD stock subsequently declined again
along with the broader market sell-off. By the end of in or about
October 2 008, the price of Al<ID stock was approximately $3.50 pe r
share. RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant, caused the Galleon
Technology Funds to sell a relatively small portion of their
shares of AMP stock immediatel y following the announcement.
Specifically, on October 7 , 2008, RAJARATNAM caused the Galleon
Technology Funds to sell approximately 1
1
326,150 shares of AMD at
30
a price of $5.07 per share. Most of the shares, however, were
held until at least later in October 2008, by which time the value
of AMD stock had fallen below the prices at which the Galleon
Technology Funds had acquired the stock.
Insider Trading in the Securities of PeopleSupport
61 . Based on my review of public records, news reports,
~   l   p h o n   records, account records for the Galleon Technology
Funds and RAJIV GOEL, the defendant, and intercepted wire
communications occurring over the Rajaratnam Cell Phone, I have
learned the following:
a. On or about March 3, 2008, Galleon Management,
L.P. filed an Amended Statement of Beneficial Ownership (Form sc
13D/A) with the SEC regarding its ownership of stock in
PeopleSupport. The filing indicated that Galleon Management, L.P.
and affiliated entities owned more than 5.7 million shares (25
percent ) of the outstanding common stock of PeopleSupport .
b. Included as an exhibit to the filing of March
3, 2008 was a letter from PeopleSupport to certain Galleon
entiti es dated February 29, 2008 . The letter confirmed that,
subject to certain conditions, PeopleSupport would undertake to

Directors from seven to eight, and to elect a "Galleon Designee"
to fi ll the vacancy created by such increase .
c. On or about March 5, 2008, PeopleSupport
elected an employee of Galleon (the "Galleon Designee" ) to its
Board of Directors.
d. Beginning on or before March 12, 2008, the
Galleon Designee provided RAJ RAJARATNAM, the defendant, with
Inside Information regarding PeopleSupport. For example, on or
about March 12, 2008, at approximately 8:49p.m., the Galleon
Designee called RAJARATNAM on the Rajaratnam Cell Phone to discuss
PeopleSupport's stock buyback. The Galleon Designee indicated
that PeopleSupport had purchased 200,000 shares in the past two
days.
e. On or about May 2, 2008, the Galleon Designee
discussed PeopleSupport with RAJARATNAM on the Rajaratnam Cell
Phone. The Galleon Designee told RAJARATNAM that PeopleSupport
had previously announced that it expected annual revenues of $160-
170 million, but that the company could probably achieve only $158
million. The Galleon Designee estimated that , based on what
PeopleSupport planned to announce the following week, "the stock
31
will not go down that much. It's gonna go down a little bit, but
it's gonna hold between $9 and $11 . . .. " The Galleon Designee and
RAJARATNAM then discussed a potential acquistion of PeopleSupport,
and whether Galleon would make money on its investment in
PeopleSupport were PeopleSupport to be acquired for approximately
$12 or $13 per share. Later, RAJARATNAM shared with the Galleon
Designee Inside Information regarding Spansion, among other
compani es, and discussed with the Galleon Designee the creation of
an "email trail" to "protect ourselves."
f. On or about August 4, 2008, PeopleSupport
announced that it had agreed to be acquired by Aegis BPO, a
subsidiary of India's Essar Group ("Essar"), for $250 million.
Pursuant to the terms of the transaction, shareholders of
PeopleSupport would receive $12.25 per share, a premium of
approximately 29 percent over its previous closing price, on
August 1, 2008, of $9.53 per share.
g. On or about August 26, 2008, at approximately
4:52p.m., the Galleon Designee called RAJARATNN1 on the
Rajaratnam Cell Phone . The Galleon Designee discussed SiRF
Technology Holdings, I n c., and then the Ga lleon Designee told
RAJARATNAM that "we had a Board meeting today in PeopleSupport."
The Galleon Designee and RAJARATNAM discussed whether RAJARATNAM
would support Essar's proposed buyout of PeopleSupport, and if so,
whether the Galleon Designee could announce such support at a
PeopleSupport Board meeting the following week.
h. On or about October 6, 2008, at approximately
3:50p.m., the Galleon Designee called   on the
Rajaratnam Wor k Phone. The call lasted approximately 11 minutes.
i . On or about October 7, 2008, a t approximately
8:30 a,m., PeopleSupport announced that it had received a request
from Essar to delay the closing of its acquisition of
PeopleSupport to a date not later than October 31, 2008. At 9:30
a . m. , PeopleSupport stock opened at $11.33 per share, down
approximately 9 percent over the previous day's closing pri ce
($12.01} due to investors' concerns that deal with Essar might
fall apart. The stock price reached an intra-day low of $8.95 per
share before closing, at approximately 4:00p.m., at $9.25 per
share .
j. On or about October 7, 2008, at approximately
1:09 p.m., RAJARATNAM logged into GOEL's personal account at
Charles Schwab using an IP address assigned to Galleon and
purchased 30,000 shares of Peopl eSupport stock for GOEL at a price
32
of $9.50 per share . At approximately 1:46 p.m., GOEL called
RAJARATNAM on the Raj aratnam Cell Phone. RAJARATNAM explained to
GOEL that the acquisition of PeopleSupport by Essar .was "supposed
to close on Tuesday," but that the date was now being moved to
Oct ober 31. Referring to the Galleon Designee, RAJARATNAM said,
"We know - because one of our guys is on the Board - we know that
they're gonna put 41 million dollars in escrow. It's a 250
million dollar deal, right? And I know they're gonna close before
October 31st ." RAJARATNAM said -that it was "an opportunity for me
to buy for you." RAJARATNAM then explained to GOEL that he had
logged into GOEL's account at Charles Schwab to purchase 30,000
shares of PeopleSupport stock.
k. On or about October 7, 2008, at approximately
7:48p. m., PeopleSupport and Essar announced a schedule for
completion of the merger transaction. Essar confirmed its
intenti on to complete the acquisition of PeopleSupport, and also
reaffirmed that the transaction was not subject to financing. On
the following day, PeopleSupport stock opened at $11.21 per share,
up approximately 21 percent over the previous day's closing price
($9 . 25 per share).
1. On or about October 9, 2008, 30,000 shares of
PeopleSupport i n GOEL's personal account were sold at a price of
approximately $11.23 per share, yielding a profit of approximately
$50 t 000 • lQ
10
In addition to the foregoing, I spoke to another agent
who had reviewed a consensually recorded conversation involving
two individuals, one of whom had previously spoken to RAJ
RAJARATNAM, the defendant . That individual said that RAJARATNAM
was told to be careful and that RAJARATNAM, in response, had
expressed the view that a former employee of the Galleon Group
was likely to be wearing a "wire." Furthermore, I learned,
during the early morning hours of October 15, 2009, from
conversations with an individual at the Office of Customs and
Border Protection, that a plane ticket had been purchased in the
name of RAJARATNAM on October 14 , 2009, for travel, on October
16, 2009, from John F. Kennedy airport, New York, New York, to
Heathrow airport in London, England. I further learned that a
plane ticket had been purchased in the name of RAJARATNAM for a
return flight to New York, New York from Geneva, Switzerland on
or about October 22, 2009. I als"o learned through pen register
data that a phone call was placed from the Rajaratnam Cell Phone
to a telephone number that I believe to be used by one of
RAJARATNAM's family members at approximately 3 : 00a. m. this
morning.

18 L INTRODUCTION
19 On February 28, 2001, the ·united States Attorney filed a one count Information charging
2 o defendant Roomy Kahn ("Kahn") with wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1343. On April3,
2 1 2001, the defendant pleaded guilty. Defendant's sentencing is set for July 1, 2002.
2 2 The United States has received and reviewed the Final Presentence Report ("PSR")
23 prepared by Probation Officer Sonia Lapizco. For the reasons outlined below, the United States
24 respectfully disagrees with the PSR's final Sentencing Guidelines ("Guidelines") calcuJations .
.2 5 The United States believes that the adjusted offense level should be 10, with a sentencing range
2 6 of 6- 12 months, rather than offense level of 13 and sentencing range 12-18 months recommended
27 in the PSR. The United States concurs that Kahn's Criminal History Category is I, that the

. 80CUMEN NO CSA'
2 s appropriate supervised release term is 3 years, and that the appropriate fine range ts $3,0 to tNm. ;
$30,000, and that the appropriate restitution range is $70,000 to $120,000.
l. The United States further reconm1ends a three level downward departure, to level seven
2 (or to level 10 ifthe PSR's calculation is adopted) because the defendant has provided the United
3 States with substantial assistance in the investigation of another person, justifying a departure
4 under Guidelines§ 5Kl.l. This departure would result in a sentencing range ofO to 6 months (or
5 6 to 12 months according to the PSR). In either case, the United States recommends a sentence
6 of probation, with the condition that the defendant serve 6 months in community confinement
7 pursuant to Guidelines§ 5Cl.l(c)(3), a fine of$30,000; a three year term of supervised release,
8 and restitution to Intel Corporation, Inc. ("Intel") in the amount of$120,000.
9
10 ll. FACTUALBACKGROUND
At the time of her offense, Kahn was employed as a Product Marketing Engineer for Intel.
12 Her position afforded her access to a highly confidential Intel docwnent known as a "book to
13 billing" report. This document contained some of Intel's most closely guarded customer order
14 information. It listed the nwnber of chip orders booked by several dozen major personal
1.5 ·computer manufacturers, as well as the number of chips actually shipped. · From the document,
1.6 one could discern Intel's probable financial performance for the current and su"bsequent quarter.
17 In early 1998, Intel became concerned that its internal financial information was being
1S leaked because an analyst at Needham & Co., Rajesawry Rajaratnam, was predicting intel's
19 revenue with extreme accuracy. Rajaratnam subsequently quit Needham and founded his own
2 0 high-tech hedge fund (Galleon Management, Inc.), which he quickly built from nothing to $800
21 million under management. Intel nevertheless began a monitoring program to determine whether
2 2 anyone at Intel was dialing   number. They learned that Kahn dialed it several times,
2 3 and sent faxes to Galleon as well.
24 On its own initiative, Intel set up a hidden video camera at the fax machine. On March 6
2 5 and 24, 1998, the camera recorded Kahn faxing the "book to billing" reports for the three primary
2 6 Intel Pentium processors for the prior week. In addition, on March 24, Kahn faxed several
27 handwritten pages. According to Intel's CFO, the notations represent Intel's Average Selling
2 a Price (or "ASP"), and Units Sold for the first quarter of 1998. By multiplying those numbers,
GOV'T SENT. MEM. -2-
{No. CR-01·20029·JW] [UNDER SEAL]
1 one can determine IntePs total revenue for the quarter. One could also compare the Ql ASP wtth
2 prior, publicly announced quarters, and determine how well newer, more profitable chips were
3 selling. The "book to billing" reports also contained wilts sold information for every major PC
4 maker for the quarter, thus providing one key component of non-public financial performance for
5 each of those companies as well.
6 Kahn signed a confidentiality agreement when Intel hired her. The "book to billing''
7 reports and ASP information are closely guarded, and tightly distributed within Intel. The reports
8 were each marked "Intel Confidential." After Intel fired Kalm (without disclosing its knowledge
9 of the theft}, Kahn went to work for Rajaratnam's company, Galleon.
10 Once confronted by FBI agents about the theft, and after she retained counsel, Kabn
11 entered into a plea agreement with the United States and began to cooperate in an investigation
12 into Rajaratnam's practices. She submitted to several debriefings, described her activities and
13 those of other individuals involved in Rajaratnam's efforts to obtain material, non-public
14 information at several publicly traded companies. The FBI and SEC investigation into
15 Rajaratnan1 's activities is continuing. After an exhaustive analysis of the labyrinth of accounts
6 associated with Galleon, however, the SEC/FBI has not been able to show that any Galleon trade
17 resulted from Rajaratnam's possession ofthe information stolen for him by Kahn from Intel.

20 A.
III. DISCUSSION
APPLICABLE GUIDELINE CALCULATION
21 Kahn has been convicted of wire fraud. The applicable Guideline at the time of the
2 2 offense was § 2F 1. 1. That provision requires an estimate of the value of the loss resulting from
2 3 the scheme to defraud. As far as the FBI and SEC have been able to determine, after a fairly
2 4 extensive investigation, Ms. Kahn did not personally profit from her theft of information. The
2 s theory under which she was prosecuted for wire fraud was the "deprivation of honest services"
26 variant of a scheme to defraud. See 18 U.S.C. § 1343 ( .. For purposes of this   the term
2 7 'scheme or artifice to defraud' includes a scheme or artifice to deprive another of the intangible
2 8 right ofhonest services."); United States v. Lemire, 720 F 2d 1327 (D.C. Cir. 1983). The parties
GOV'T SENT. MEM. -3-
[No. CR-01-20029-JW] [UNPER SEAL}
J. agreed in the Plea Agreement that a reasonable estimate of the loss amount here was between
2 $70,000 and $120.000. This agreement attempted to account for the loss to Intel ofKahn's
3 services as a result of her disloyalty and theft.
4 The base offense level under§ 2Fi.l is 6. The loss amount adds 6levels. With an
5 offense level of 12, Kahn would be entitled to a 2 level downward adjustment for acceptance of
6 responsibility (which all parties, including the PSR, agree is appropriate). See§ 3El.l. Kahn
7 would have a final offense level of l 0. With a Criminal History Category of I, her sentencing
8 range would be 0 to 6 months, in Zone A of the Sentencing Table.
9 The PSR suggests two upward adjustments, however, with which the United States
10 respectfully disagrees. First, the PSR would add 2 levels to the offense level for «more than
11   under§ 2FI.l(b)(2)(A). PSR 20. Second, the PSR would add 2levels for
12 an "abuse of position oftrust or use of special skill" under§ 3Bl.3. PSR 22. These
13 enhancement would result in an offense level of 16 before any adjustment for acceptance of
14 responsibility, which is 3 levels rather than 2. See 3El.l(b) (permitting additional level
15 reduction for o.ffense levels of 16 or more). With a final offense of 13, Kahn's sentencing
16 range under the PSR 's calculations would be 12 to 18 months, in Zone B of the Sentencing
17 Table.
18
19 B. · AN ADJUSTMENT FOR ''MORE THAN MINIMAL PLANNING" IS INAPPLICABLE
2 o The PSR adds 2 levels under Guidelines § 2Fl.l (b )(2)(A) on the ground that the
21 defendant's conduct involved more than minimal planning. Under Guidelines§ lBl.l(f) ''more
22 than minimal planning .. means "more planning than is typical for commission of the offense in a
23 simple form." See also Guidelines§ lBl.l Application Note (f). ("More than rrtioimal planning"
2 4 exists where the defendant takes "significant affirmative steps ... to conceal the offense" or
2 s "repeat[s the illegal] acts over a period of time, unless it is clear that each instance was purely
2 6 opportune.").
21 Kahn did not take affinnative steps to conceal her conduct. Although she briefly denied
2 a the conduct when confronted by the FBI, she corrected her statements, agreed to plead guilty and
GOV'TSENT. MEM. -4-
[No. CR·OI -20029-IW) [UNDER SEAL]
1 cooperated with law enforcement. The evidence obtained during the investigation reveals that
2 Kahn's acts occurred on two occasions (March 6 and 24, 1999). The first involved the backlog
3 and billing report. The second involved Kahn's handwritten calculations of the Average Selling
4 Price and units sold for Intel's microprocessorY Having reviewed the evidence and debriefed
5 Kahn, the United States' view is that these disclosures fall closer to an opportunistic offense in
6 its "simple form" tba:n they do to a complicated, well-planned scheme that spanned a long period
7 of time. It therefore asks the Court not to apply the upward adjustment.
8 c. AN ADJUSTMENT FOR ABUSE OF A POSITION OF TRUST IS INAPPLICABLE
9 The PSR adds two levels under Guidelines § 3B 1.3 on the ground that Kahn abused a
10 position of private trust. First, Kahn was charged by information with using an interstate wire
11 communication to execute a scheme to defraud and to deprive her employer, Intel, of its
12 intangible right to her honest services as an employee. The offense itself necessarily involves a
13 breach of the trust inherent in the employee/employer relationship. Therefore, the abuse of trust
14 is arguably already found within the base offense level WJder Guidelines § 2Fl.l. See Guidelines
15 '1§ 3Bl.3 ("This adjustment may not be employed if an abuse oft:tust or skill is included in the .ft
16 base offense level or specific offense characteristic.").
17 More importantly, Kalm was not a supervisory level employee at Intel provided with
18 "professional or managerial discretion." Guidelines § 3B 1.3, Application Note L She was a
19 lower-level marketing employee, who had access to the stolen information in the ordinary course
-
20 of her employment tasks. The Application Note to§ 3Bl.3 makes clear that the enhancement is
21. meant for persons "subject to significantly less supervision than employees whose
22 responsibilities are primarily non-discretionary." Kahn appears to be more like "the ordinary
2 3 bank teller or hotel clerk" identified in the Note, whose positions are not characterized by
2 4 discretion. In addition, although Kahn possessed certain financial skills, Intel apparently did not
25

28
!I Although Kahn admitted in her cooperation debriefings that she sent booking reports
on other occasions, this information cannot be used at sentencing. U.S.S.G. § lB 1.8(a). The
PSR's relies on these other thefts- disclosed by Kahn in immunized debriefings - in seeking the
enhancemenl See also Plea Agreement 1 I 5 ('The government agrees not to use any statements
made by the defendant pursuant to this agreement against her. __ ."}-
GOV'T SENT. MEM. -5-
(No. CR-01-20029-JW) (UNDER SEAL]
1 hire her as a result of those skills. She was assigned to marketing, not to a financial control or
2 analysis position. Consequently, it is difficult to conclude that her position at the company
3 resulted from the special skill that facilitated her offense (her ability to extrapolate the ASP and
4 unit figures to calculat.e quarterly revenue). The United States respectfully asks that the Court
5 not impose thls enhancement.

D. THE DEFENDANf SHOULD RECEIVE A TWO LEVEL DOWNWARD
DEPARTURE ON THE BASIS OF HER SUBSTANTIAL ASSISTANCE
In exchange for Kahn's complete and truthful cooperation with the United States, the
government agreed to file a motion pursuant to § 5Kl . l for a downward departure. Plea
  16. Accordingly, based on the nature and quality of Kahn's assistance in an
ongoing investigation, the United States files this motion for a further three level downward
departure, which in the United States' view is justified by the defendant's post-plea assistant thus
far to law enforcement in the investigation of Rajaratnam. The investigation is not complete.
However, it is unlikely that further assistance will be required from Kahn in the short tenn, and
15 ;; ,\ i)
16
17

23
her sentencing at this time is appropriate.
Section 5Kl.l ofthe United States Sentencing Guidelines enumerates five factors which
the Court may consider in addition to otheJ:s in determining whether to grant the government's
motion for downward departure based on a defendant's substantial assistance. The United States
believes that defendant Kahn's assistance satisfies factors (2), (3) and (5) and respectfully
recommends that the Court find w1der factor (1) that her assistance has been significant and
use.ful as described below.
Factor (2): The truthfulness. completeness. and reliability of any information or
2 4 testimony provided by the defendant.
2 5 All of the federal agents who questioned the defendant found that the information she
2 6 provided with respect to her involvement and the involvement ofR.ajaratnam in the offense was
2 7 truthful; that the infonnation was complete; and that it was reliable. The defendant was
2 8 debriefed on three separate occasions by Assistant United States Attorneys from two districts
GOV'T SENT. MEM. -6-
[No. CR-Ot-20029-JWJ [UNDER SEAL]
l (Northern California and Brooklyn, New York), as well as agents from the Federal Bureau of
2 fuvestigation and lhe Securities and Exchange Commission. Kalm provided consistent details
3 regarding her crime, the involvement ofRajaratnam, and others involved-with Rajaratnam in
4 providing information at other public companies.
5
6 Factor (3): The nature and extent ofthe defendant's assistance.
7 Kahn fully accepted responsibility for her actions in this case, and provided useful
8 information during her discussions with federal law enforcement agents. The defendant's
9 information regarding the involvement ofRajaratnam in the scheme to defraud Intel was
10 corroborated by independently obtained evidence. It h.as not led to the prosecution of Rajaratnam
ll at this time for reasons unrelated to the quality ofKahn's assistance. Based on information
12 obtained to date, Rajaratnam cannol be tied to illegal insider trading c01mected to the Intel
13 information. He also did not provide any monetary payment for the information. The
l4 investigators nevertheless consider Kahn's information to be useful from an intelligence
15 standpoint, and continue to investigate several leads she provided with respect to other sources of
l6 information for Rajaratnam. The FBI and the SEC anticipate tl1at Kahn's information may be
17 useful in connection with other possible criminal activity on his part, unrelated to CnteL
18
l9 Factor ( 4): Any iniurv suffered. or any danger or risk of injury to the defendant or her
family resulting from her assistance.
20
21
22
23
24
25
26
27
28
The United States acknowledges that this factor does not weigh in favor of the downward
departure reconunended herein. To the best f t h   govelllil!ent's lmowledge, the defendant's
status as an informant has not been disseminated. There is no indication that Rajaratnam or any
associate is dangerous or would pose any risk of physical harm to Kahn.
Factor (5): The timeliness of the defendant's assistance.
Defendant Kahn's cooperation began as soon as she retained an attorney, prior to the
government's charging decision. She entered into a plea agreement immediately, and submitted
GOV'T SENT. MEM. -7-
[No. CR-01-20029-JW] [UNDER SEAL]
1 to multiple debrie fings whenever requested by the government. The infom1ation was timely, in
2 that it allowed investigators to obtain relevant records and to corroborate other information they
3 bad independently obtained. The United States' motion is tempered only by the fact that the
4 investigation is ongoing. The United States Attomeys Offices involved have thus far declined to
5 bring criminal charges against Rajaratnam based on factors that have nothing to do with Kahn' s
6 cooperation. In the government's view, she is nevertheless entitled to some credit for her efforts,
? which otherwise meet the factors set forth for a departure in the Guidelines.
8 IV. CONCLUSION
9 For the reasons stated above, the United States recommends a 3 level departure for
l 0 substantial assistance under § 5Kl .l . If the Court agrees and adopts the Guidelines calculation
11 proposed by the United States, Kahn's offense level would be 7 (0 to 6 months); if the Court
12 adopts. the PSR's calculation, the offense level with the departure would be 10 (6 to 12 months).
13 In either case, the United States recorrunends a sentence of probation with the condition that
1.4 Kahn spend 6 months in community confinement. The offense of conviction provides for a 3
1.5 year terrn of supervised release. Given Kahn's fmancial situation, the United States recommends
16 a fine at the high end of the applicable range, $30,000, as well as $120,000 in restitution to Intel.
17 Kahn must also pay a mandatory $100 Special Assessment. The United States asks that the
18 Court require her to pay this amount at the time of sentencing.
