SEC investigates OpenAI

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is looking into whether OpenAI misled company investors during last year’s boardroom debacle in which CEO Sam Altman was fired and then rehired within days.

The Wall Street Journal reports that internal communication by Altman is being looked at by the SEC.

During Altman’s short-lived ousting, OpenAI said the CEO was “not being consistently candid with the board.”

The SEC is now looking into the matter, having subpoenaed OpenAI last December. The Journal reports that the agency has also requested to see communication from current and former company officials.

Altman was fired on November 17, only to return five days later following an employee rebellion.

The SEC’s investigation is the second probe to have emerged in the wake of the firing. The U.K.’s competition regulator announced last December that it was investigating Microsoft’s partnership with ChatGPT developer OpenAI.
