Infineon wins court fight against EU cartel fine


BRUSSELS, Sept 26 – Germany’s Infineon Technologies on Wednesday won its fight against an 82.2 million euro ($96.74 million) European Union cartel fine after Europe’s highest court told a lower tribunal to review the size of its penalty.

Infineon, which received the biggest sanction, Philips and Samsung Electronics, were hit with a total fine of 138 million euros in 2014 for fixing prices of chips used in mobile SIM cards.
