Contingent liabilities for regulatory and competition law proceedings

With regard to the contingent liabilities reported in the 2020 consolidated financial statements in connection with regulatory and antitrust proceedings, Swisscom is of the opinion that an outflow of resources is unlikely and has therefore, as before, not recognised any provisions for this in the consolidated financial statements as at 31 March 2021.
