The General Court (“GC”) handed down its judgment regarding appeals lodged by Total SA and its subsidiary Total Raffinage Marketing’s (formerly Total France SA) against the Commission’s decision concerning the paraffin wax and slack wax cartel. The GC dismissed the appeal by Total SA in its entirety. As regards the appeal by Total Raffinage, however, the GC found that the Commission had erred in its assessment of the duration of Total Raffinage’s participation in the cartel and used an incorrect multiplication coefficient in its calculation of the fine to be imposed. Accordingly, the GC recalculated the amount of the fine resulting in a reduction of the fine from EUR 128,163,000 to EUR 125,459,842.
