A software company in Cambridge accused of lying about its finances to Hewlett-Packard - the American company which bought it for more than £7bn last year - has denied the claims.
HP has alleged former members of Autonomy's management misled potential buyers over the company's real value.
An inquiry was launched after a whistleblower at Autonomy came forward with the allegations, which have been denied by the former managers. The case has now been referred to the Serious Fraud Office.
