Zurich, Switzerland, December 11, 2008 – ABB confirmed today that it has received a Statement of Objections from the European Commission alleging anti-competitive practices among a number of power transformer producers. This is part of the ongoing investigation in the power transformer business, for which the European Commission conducted dawn raids at the premises of an ABB unit in Bad Honnef, Germany, in February 2007.
ABB has made several disclosures regarding this matter and its potential impact, including in its most recent quarterly press release and annual report.
A Statement of Objections is not a final decision, but a preliminary assessment by the European Commission of the alleged anti-competitive practices.
