The National Banking and Securities Commission (CNBV) announced fines totaling almost 72 million pesos against the company OHL Mexico, its subsidiaries and six executives, for violating regulations related to stock trading.

This fine “is the largest fine ever imposed by the CNBV as punishment for violating stock trading regulations,” stated a CNBV press release.

The resolution is the result of an investigation that started in May 2015 and ended in October of that year, when the CNBV detected illegal activity.

The violations were related to guarantees of profitability and spreading of false information that could lead investors to error.
