The federal government and private investors knew the risks they were taking when they poured money in Solyndra LLC, the California solar panel manufacturer that went bankrupt two years after winning more than a half-billion dollars in federal loan guarantees, according to the company's top official.
Bankrupt solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC is busy selling off assets, but who owns what's left over is hard to say.
R. Todd Neilson, the former FBI agent hired by Solyndra to review company's books, ultimately said he couldn't come up with any evidence of criminal wrongdoing.
Mr. Neilson said the company's construction costs were correctly recorded and "no material funds were diverted from their original use."
