The Financial Reporting Council, the U.K.'s accounting watchdog, is investigating Autonomy's earnings reports from January 1 2009 to June 30 2011, three months before H-P's (HPQ) ill-fated acquisition. The probe comes after the U.S. company wrote down the value of the $8.8B deal in November and accused Autonomy's former management of accounting improprieties.
