“The Antitrust Division has now charged five companies and one individual for their participation in this international price-fixing conspiracy.
The electrolytic capacitors conspiracy affected millions of American consumers who use electronic devices containing capacitors every day. Electrolytic capacitors store and regulate electrical current in a variety of electronic products, including computers, televisions, car engine and airbag systems, home appliances and office equipment.
Rubycon Corporation, Elna Co., Ltd. and Holy Stone Holdings Co., Ltd. will plead guilty for their roles in a conspiracy to fix prices for electrolytic capacitors sold to customers in the United States and elsewhere.”
