The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced an award of more than $17 million to a whistleblower who provided information and assistance in a covered action and related action.
The whistleblower’s information prompted SEC staff to open a new investigation that led to the successful covered action. The whistleblower also provided SEC Enforcement staff with detailed information and documents throughout the investigation. Further, because the same information led to the success of the related action, the whistleblower is also entitled to an award based on amounts collected in the related action.
