Although the company has rejected all allegations about the alleged price collusion in North America, Grieg Seafood has had to pay €15.9 million.
This appears in the company’s quarterly report, at the same time as they presented their best quarter ever, where operational EBIT ended at €86 million.
It became known in May that Mowi, SalMar, Lerøy Seafood, Bremnes Seashore, Cermaq and then Grieg Seafood had entered into a settlement of $85 million to avoid a potential lawsuit.
DN is today reporting that Grieg Seafood’s share amounts to €15.9 million.
“There are provisions related to cases in the USA and Canada. At the same time, we emphasize that we do not accept any blame,” CEO Andreas Kvame told DN.
“The settlement does not represent an admission of responsibility or guilt,” the companies wrote in the message when the settlement became known.
Since the case became known, all the companies have maintained their innocence.
