"Intel has harmed millions of European consumers by deliberately acting to keep competitors out of the market for computer chips for many years. Such a serious and sustained violation of the EU's antitrust rules cannot be tolerated."1

- Neeli Kroes, Competition Commissioner, European Commission2, in May 2009.

"We do not believe our practices violated European law. The natural result of a competitive market with only two major suppliers is that when one company wins sales, the other does not."3

- Paul Otellini, CEO, Intel Corporation, in May 2009.

"[The Commission] wanted to send a clear signal that it is taking a leadership role in enforcing competition rules against dominant companies in the technology markets."4

- Michael Reynolds, antitrust partner, Allen & Overy5, commenting on EC's ruling, in May 2009.


On May 13, 2009, the European Commission (EC) slapped a fine of € 1.06 billion on California-based Intel Corporation (Intel), the largest semiconductor company in the world, for violating the antitrust policies of the European Union (EU).
