EDF fined millions for misleading on U.K. nuclear project
The Enforcement Committee of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) has imposed a fine of €5 million (about $5.9 million) on Électricité de France for providing false information about the United Kingdom’s Hinkley Point C nuclear-build project. The committee has also imposed a €50,000 (about $59,000) fine on EDF’s former chairman and chief executive officer, Henri Proglio, in the matter. According to a July 30 AMF statement, the false information was spread via an October 8, 2014, news release.
The AMF is described on its website as an independent public authority that regulates the French financial marketplace and its participants.
