Investigation into suspected anti-competitive agreements


Investigation into suspected anti-competitive agreements

Dietlikon, 15 November 2012 - In its press release of 1 November 2012,
Implenia announced that representatives of the Secretariat of Switzerland's
Competition Commission (WEKO) had carried out inquiries at its branch in
Zernez (Canton Grisons) on 31 October 2012 and 1 November 2012. On 13 November
2012 the Competition Commission published a notice in the Swiss Official
Gazette of Commerce no. 221 saying that during its investigations it had
become aware that agreements may have been made in the building construction,
civil engineering and roads sectors, as well as in upstream markets in Canton
Grisons. According to the Competition Commission, there is reason to suspect
that these agreements may constitute illegal restraints on competition.
Implenia continues to cooperate with the competition authorities to clarify
the facts of the matter.
