Las Vegas Sands (LVS) acknowledges it probably broke the law against bribing foreign officials, according to its 10-K filed yesterday. The WSJ ties the admission to dealings in mainland China by people no longer with the firm. The SEC subpoenaed the company Feb. 9, 2011, at which time the LVS board's audit committee opened a probe; LVS doesn't expect any material impact or restatement of past results.
