Judges for the award said:

“Through the efforts of two reporters half a world apart, working through headquarters on a third continent, the Journal owned one of the most competitive business stories of the year: The stunning arrest, downfall and, ultimately, escape of a renowned Japanese auto executive. By peeling an onion of ambitions, rivalries and self-dealing, Kostov and McLain revealed the scope of intrigue at Nissan and Renault that set Carlos Ghosn’s fate in motion. Their persistent enterprise over the course of the year helped Journal readers solve a great mystery.”
