Article by: Darren Griffin
Date: 1 Oct 2009

pocketgpsworld.comReuters are reporting an criminal investigation of a Tomtom employee for insider trading.

The investigation by Dutch public prosecutors, the financial services regulator AFM and tax authorities is focussed on a single employee and TomTom's Amsterdam offices were searched yesterday.

The seniority of the employee has not been disclosed although TomTom have stated it is not a board member and there was no evidence to support the claim that the employee had any 'insider information'.

TomTom is understood to be fully cooperating with the investigation.

I'm deeply sceptical about the validity of this story. My experience - and that of most TomTom customers I've met - strongly indicates that nobody within the company has the slightest clue what is going on, much less can leverage their knowledge in any manner useful to themselves or any other individual. The implication that someone at TomTom has a degree of intelligence stretches credulity just that bit too far for me.

I like my TomTom support to be dumb, and they've never let me down yet!

I was reading this on one of the Tech sites yesterday, and I think it made the Times Financial as well.
Reports seem to say they went in to look for a named individual in relation to insider dealing.
It may be that the individual is part of a syndicate involved in dealing of other companies shares, and not necessarily TomToms.
I didn't pay a lot of attention to be honest, saw Tom Tom being mentioned and thought it might be about a new or improved product.
