7 Contingent liabilities and contingent assets

Regulatory and competition-law proceedings

With regard to the contingent liabilities reported in the 2016 consolidated financial statements in connection with regulatory and antitrust proceedings, Swisscom is of the opinion that an outflow of resources is unlikely and, as before, has therefore not recognised any provisions for this in the consolidated financial statements as at 30 September 2017.

Contingent assets from litigation

In the second quarter of 2017, Fastweb received an out-of-court settlement from 2015 amounting to EUR 95 million (CHF 102 million). Fastweb no longer has any uncertain outstanding claims subject to certain conditions arising from this settlement. For further information, see Note 29 of the 2016 consolidated financial statements.
