The committee found that, beginning in 1995, there were 49 instances in which the stated date of a stock option grant was different from the date on which the option appeared to have been granted.In almost every case, the price on the actual date was higher than the price on the stated grant date.The Chief Executive Officer, Amnon Landan, also was found to have misreported personal stock option exercise dates to increase his profit on transactions three times between 19.

On 3 January 2006, Mercury missed a second deadline for restating its financials, leading to the delisting.
In 2007, the SEC filed civil fraud charges against Landan, Smith, Skaer and Abrams.
Without admitting or denying the SEC's allegations, Mercury Interactive agreed to pay a million civil penalty to settle the Commission's charges in 2007.
