Federal Authorities Announce FCPA Action, First SEC Non-Prosecution Agreement.

The SEC action included the agency's first non prosecution agreement (NPA) related to FCPA misconduct, which the SEC determined was appropriate given "the company's prompt reporting of the violations on its own initiative, the completeness of the information it provided, and its extensive, thorough, and real-time cooperation with the SEC's investigation."
