1 April 2015
Mayer Brown Legal Update

Last week we looked at the Cardinal Sin of price fixing. This week we discuss Cardinal Sin No. 2 – output limitation.

Output Limitation
Output limitation refers to agreements between competitors to fix, maintain, control, prevent, limit or eliminate the production or supply of products.

Why Limit Output?
To create a scarcity of supply to increase prices and therefore maximise the profit margin.
