Qualcomm fined CNY 6.1 bln in China competition case

Monday 9 February 2015 | 22:26 CET | News
Qualcomm has agreed to pay a fine of CNY 6.088 billion (USD 975 million) in order to put an end to a competition investigation in China. The US-based company confirmed that it had reached a resolution with China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) regarding the NDRC's investigation of Qualcomm under China's Anti-Monopoly Law (AML). Qualcomm will not appeal the decision that it violated the AML and agreed to pay the fine as well as implement changes in its business practices in China.
