The SEC made an award of $750,000 to one whistleblower and $3.75 million to a second whistleblower based on findings that they provided information that assisted SEC staff in related civil and criminal proceedings against a company and individual.  The first individual provided information relevant to the action against the individual only, but did so more than five years after learning of the violation.  The second individual, who received a larger award, was originally denied any award by the SEC, but, upon reconsideration, the SEC concluded that they had voluntarily provided information to the Commission prior to being contacted by the Commission.  Three other claimants were denied awards.  SEC
