Altron has concluded due process was adhered to in the awarding of the digital terrestrial television (DTT) set-top box contract.
In December, a Competition Commission investigation was launched into three Altron subsidiaries, together with 12 other businesses, in respect of the 2014 contract.

Altech UEC, one of the Altron subsidiaries, responded to the DTT tender in 2014, but was ultimately unsuccessful in its bid to secure the tender.

Subsequent to the recent Competition Commission inquiry, Altron appointed external legal firm Bowmans to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations.

Bowmans has now finalised its investigation into the Altron subsidiaries’ alleged collusion in the award of the DTT tender and has concluded that, in their opinion, there was no anti-competitive conduct on the part of these entities, particularly with regard to tender collusion and/or price fixing.
