    Schneider Electric SA acknowledges the European Commission's decision concerning two former subsidiaries' alleged participation in a high voltage switchgear cartel

    Rueil-Malmaison, January 24th, 2007 - Following an investigation into anti-competitive practices for gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) launched by the European Commission in May 2004, Schneider Electric SA, along with 11 other companies, has been informed that it will have to pay a fine.

    Schneider Electric specifies that:

    • it has no more been involved in this business since October 2000, when it sold former subsidiaries SEHV and NMG to the VA TECH Schneider High Voltage GmbH joint venture,
    • the fine amounts to a few million euros, reflecting the type of facts presented in this case.
