It's a deferred prosecution agreement. They've got away with it. There will be no prosecution. The SFO doesn't want the hassle of prosecuting major fraud for large organisations who tak eup public service contracts or have military weapons licences so they fine them a token amount an dpromise not to prosecute.

It's the equivalent to a Police Caution + Fine.

The larger the fraud the less important there is individual punishment.
