As previously reported, the South Korean subsidiary initiated legal proceedings in 2017 regarding certain administrative costs Ulsan City invoiced the company.

The court has previously ruled these costs not to be subject to administrative law leading to the civil lawsuit. The first proceedings were held in May 2021 and a negative outcome was received in September 2021.

The ruling was appealed, and the lawsuit was resolved on August 23, 2023, as the court announced its decision in favour of Ulsan City. The final ruling in writing is expected to arrive by August 31, 2023.

The administrative costs have already been accounted for in their entirety and the ruling will not impact the financial result. The company has yet to decide whether to appeal further.
