The Federal Cartel Office in Germany has issued a decision against Carlsberg Deutschland and other German Breweries. In that connection, the Federal Cartel Office imposes a fine in the amount of EUR 62 m on Carlsberg Deutschland for alleged infringement of the competition rules in 2007.
We do not agree with the conclusions or findings by the Federal Cartel Office and Carlsberg Deutschland will accordingly appeal the decision to the relevant German Court.
As long as the case is running, we do not have further comments.
