  Competition Commission to Prohibit the Activity of French Ferry Company
  MyFerryLink

UK Regulatory Announcement

PARIS

The Competition Commission has decided, on 6 June 2013, to prohibit Groupe
Eurotunnel (Paris:GET) from operating a ferry activity from the port of Dover.

Groupe Eurotunnel will immediately appeal this decision which the group finds
incomprehensible and seriously disproportionate. In reality this decision:

  *Is not based on any concrete facts, but solely upon a random association
    of virtual hypothesis,
  *Restructures the maritime activity across the Straits of Dover into a
    duopoly, thereby disadvantaging consumers,
  *Prohibits access to a port, in total contradiction with the freedom of
    movement incarnate in Europe,
  *Deprives the Ports of Dover and Calais of significant revenues,
  *Ignores the ruling of the Paris Commercial Court linking the sale of the
    assets of SeaFrance with a requirement not to re-sell them for a period of
    five years and is in contradiction with the decision of the French
    Competition Authority.

Jacques Gounon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Groupe Eurotunnel SA,
stated: “This decision by the Competition Commission will reduce the choice of
services across the Straits of Dover to the detriment of the consumer. It will
inevitably lead to an increase in the price of a crossing”.
