China’s securities regulator has handed out at least 2.37 billion yuan ($370 million) in penalties this month, five times the total for all of 2014, as the government clamps down after a stock rout.

The alleged offenders targeted by the China Securities Regulatory Commission include the nation’s largest securities companies, trading-technology firms, major shareholders of publicly traded companies, and institutional and individual investors.
