On 14 March 2016, the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (the “AMC”) approved its annual report for 2015, pursuant to which it set out its key results for 2015, and further outlined certain expectations for 2016
According to the AMC’s Chairman, the most notable trends businesses should expect in 2016 are as follows:
– negotiated settlements in case of violations; and
– block exceptions for vertical supply and distribution agreements (to reduce the number of notifications required for concerted action agreements).
The AMC also plans to continue to closely monitor the fuel and energy, pharmaceutical, and health care markets.
The text of the report is not yet available, so we will keep you informed as to any further developments.
