Exclusive-Edwards Lifesciences targeted in EU antitrust raid on Sept 19 – sources

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – EU antitrust regulators raided Edwards Lifesciences at one of its EU facilities a week ago, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The European Commission on Sept. 19 said it raided a cardiovascular medical device company in an EU country on concerns that it may have abused its market power in breach of the bloc’s antitrust rules. It did not name the company.

Edwards Lifesciences, which says it is a global leader in making medical products for structural heart disease, did not respond to repeated emailed requests for comment.

The EU competition enforcer declined to comment.
