Source: 12/22/2022, Location: Asia

GTT announced that it has appealed the Seoul High Court's decision of December 1, 2022 before the Supreme Court of Korea.

As a reminder, this decision partially granted GTT's appeal against the Korea Fair Trade Commission's corrective order by revoking the €9.5 million administrative fine paid by GTT, but confirmed the Company's obligation to separate the technology license agreement from the technical assistance if requested by the Korean shipyards.

GTT's appeal is related to the obligation to separate the technology license and the technical assistance. It will be accompanied by a request for suspension of the decision. On the other hand, the KFTC has appealed against the revocation of the administrative fine.

GTT wishes to emphasize that the licence of the technology and the technical assistance constitute an inseparable offering, which guarantees the integrity of its technologies.

The Company will keep the market informed of any significant development on the matter.
