The regulator further elaborated that the information provided by the tipster led to a non-prosecution agreement (NPA) or deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) by the justice department.

The announcement also highlighted that the same whistleblower also received an additional monetary reward for the same information previously from the financial regulator.
