The Antimonopoly Office of the Slovak Republic, the Division of Concentrations, (hereafter "the Office") confirms that between 27 and 29 June 2017 it conducted an unannounced inspection at the premises of several undertakings operating in the area of production and sale of bakery products.
 
The inspection was carried out on the basis of a reasonable suspicion that there might have been the breach of an obligation to notify the merger which is a subject to the control of the Office and which should have been notified to the Office pursuant to the Act on Protection of Competition as well as the breach of prohibition to perform the rights and obligations arising from such a merger.
 
The fact that the Office conducted the inspection does not mean that the parties concerned have infringed the competition rules nor does it prejudge the conclusions of investigation.
 
At this stage the Office does not provide further information of the investigation.
