The settlement takes into account the fact that Roche previously reimbursed overpayments related to the bid-rigging through the Government of Quebec’s Voluntary Reimbursement Program. It also takes into account the company’s limited financial resources and that the individuals involved in the scheme no longer work for the firm.
As part of the settlement, the Court has also ordered the company to maintain its corporate compliance program, which is designed to prevent further anticompetitive activity by its employees. ■
