PRAGUE (Reuters) -- Skoda has been fined 49.1 million crowns (1.77 million euros) for margin fixing with distributors in 2011 and 2012, the Czech anti-monopoly office (UOHS) said on its website.
The fine was imposed in December. The office postponed the public release of its ruling due to confidential information it had to remove from the decision, a spokeswoman said.
Skoda, part of Volkswagen Group, is the country's top exporter employing about 24,600 people including temporary staff and provides work for tens of thousands more at supplier companies. It made a record operating profit of 817 million euros last year.
