Mumbai: PricewaterhouseCoopers, the previous auditors at Satyam Computer Services said its opinions on the company’s financial statement may be rendered “inaccurate and unreliable”, given revelations of fraud by the founder of the outsourcuing firm.
The firm said Ramalinga Raju’s resignation letter, which included revelations of overstated profits, may have a material effect on the veracity of Satyam’s financial statements presented to it. It said it audited the firm from the quarter ended June 2000 to the quarter ended September 2008.

The 13 January letter from Pricewaterhouse to Satyam’s new board members and the company secretary was released by the stock exchange.
