KPMG has agreed to pay more than $6.2 million to settle charges that it failed to properly audit the financial statements of oil and gas company Miller Energy Resources in 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission said. As a result, investors were misinformed about the energy company’s value.  KPMG’s engagement partner in charge of the audit, John Riordan, also agreed to settle charges against him.
