On December 28, Kumho Tire announced that the company became independent from the Kumho Asiana Group pursuant to Article 14-2 of the Monopoly Regulation and Fair Trade Act.

The Fair Trade Commission approved the company’s separation from the Kumho Asiana Group on the previous day and officially notified Kumho Tire of the approval.
