In the past, Swisscom recognised provisions for regulatory and antitrust proceedings on the basis of legal assessments. As a result of the reassessment of these proceedings, provisions of CHF 84 million were made in the first half of 2022 and present-value adjustments of CHF 8 million were recorded. Any payments to be made will depend upon the date on which legally binding decrees and decisions are issued, and could probably occur within five years.
Contingent liabilities for regulatory and competition law proceedings
With regard to the other contingent liabilities reported in the 2021 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 June 2022.
