SISTIC v. Competition Commission of Singapore

1 minute read


In its first abuse of dominance decision, the Competition Commission of Singapore found in 2010 that SISTIC, the near monopoly ticketing agency in Singapore, had abused its dominant position through a network of exclusive agreements with the main concert venues and promoters. SISTIC challenged this decision before the Singapore Competition Appeal Board. In May 2012, the Appeal Board upheld the Commission’s decision and dismissed SISTIC’s appeal on liability. Compass Lexecon expert, Justin Coombs acted as the Commission’s economic expert, providing two expert reports on SISTIC’s market power and conduct, as well as appearing before the Board. Coombs was assisted by a Compass Lexecon team of Ingrid Liedorp in Brussels and Sergey Khodjamirian in London.
