Case facts

OutlineAppeal brought by LG Display and LG Display Taiwan against the General Court judgment upholding (as it related to the substance) the Commission decision of 8 December 2010 finding an infringement and imposing a fine of €215m on LG Display and LG Display Taiwan (jointly and severally but reduced to €210m by the General Court) for their alleged participation in a cartel for the supply of liquid crystal display (LCD) panels ('LCD cartel').

On 23 April 2015, the Court of Justice dismissed the appeal in its entirety thereby confirming the finding of infringement and the fine as reduced by the General Court to the sum of €210m.

This matter focuses on (amongst other things) the interaction between the Fining Guidelines and the Leniency Notice and the treatment of captive sales in the calculation of fines imposed.

PartiesAppellants:
• LG Display Co Ltd (LG Display)
• LG Display Taiwan Co Ltd (LG Display Taiwan)
(collectively, LG)

Other party: European Commission

LG Display is a Korean company which exercises control over a group of companies established and operating worldwide
