The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced an award of more than $37 million to a whistleblower whose information led to a successful SEC enforcement action and a related action.
The whistleblower was the initial source of the company’s internal investigation, as well as the source for investigations by the SEC and another agency. While the company reported the alleged conduct to the SEC and the other agency, the whistleblower receives credit for the investigations being initiated because the whistleblower provided the same information to the SEC within 120 days of providing it internally.
