The Swiss Competition Commission (“ComCo”) has informed France Telecom S.A. and TDC A/S that it has decided to prohibit the proposed combination of their respective subsidiaries in Switzerland, Orange Communications S.A and Sunrise Communications AG.
France Telecom and TDC are disappointed and surprised by this decision as they strongly believe that the contemplated combination and the substantial commitments that they had proposed to undertake would have benefited the Swiss Consumer. Without this combination, Swisscom’s dominant position in the Swiss telecommunications market would be maintained.
The combined entity would be in the position to significantly invest in its networks and enhance customer experience. Identified synergies of such combination would enable the combined entity to offer more attractive prices and innovative products and services, as well as an enhanced access to a worldwide network.
France Telecom and TDC will assess their available options regarding potential next steps.
