Noble Group Ltd., the commodity trader whose losses, spectacular collapse, court dramas and multibillion dollar restructuring dominated headlines in Singapore over several years, was issued with a record fine by local authorities as investigations ended after a 45-month probe.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore imposed a civil penalty of S$12.6 million ($9 million) for publishing misleading information, the MAS, Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, and Commercial Affairs Department said in a joint statement on Wednesday. A MAS spokesperson said separately in response to queries that it was the largest such fine in the city-state’s history.
