Take notice that a proposed Final Judgment as to the contemplated acquisition of Instrumentarium OYJ (""Instrumentarium"") by General Electric Company (""GE"") has been filed in a civil antitrust case, United States v. General Electric Co., Civil Action No. 03CV01923. On September 16, 2003, the United States filed a Complaint alleging that GE's proposed acquisition of Instrumentarium is in violation of Section 7 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. sec 18. The proposed Final Judgment, filed at the same time as the Complaint, requires the defendants to fully divest Instrumentarium's Spacelabs business, which is Instrumentarium's primary manufacturing, distribution, research and development, and sales operations for critical care monitors; and its Ziehm business, which comprises Instrumentarium's C-arm business. A Competitive Impact Statement filed by the United States describes the Complaint, the proposed Final Judgment, the critical care patient monitoring and mobile C-arm medical businesses, and the remedies available to private litigants who may have been injured by the alleged violation. Copies of the Complaint, proposed Final Judgment, and Competitive Impact Statement are available for inspection at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., Room 200, 325 Seventh Street, N.W., on the Internet at http://www.usdoj.gov/atr, and at the Office of the Clerk of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, 333 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20001.
