In February 2021, the Commission extended the ex officio investigation proceeding to Gigatron export-import, Tehnomedia centar, Emmezeta Srbija and XLS Belgrade. The Commission, by analyzing the prices of certain consumer electronics products, established that Tesla brand products are offered at identical or almost identical prices, which the Commission already had in mind when initiating proceedings against Comtrade Distribution.

According to the Commission, these companies in the previous five years were involved in determining resale prices, meaning that these companies did not independently form retail prices of products but that together with Comtrade Distribution participated in price formation.
