October 20, 2015 — Asetek® announces that it has received a settlement payment of approximately $1.4 million, which is the final payment due under the nearly $1.9 million settlement with CoolIT Systems, Inc.
On June 15, 2015, Asetek announced that its patent infringement lawsuit against CoolIT Systems was concluded when the United States District Court for the Northern California on June 12, 2015 determined that CoolIT Systems must pay damages to Asetek in the amount of approximately $1.9 million. The ruling was not appealable by either party and Asetek announced that it expected to receive full payment within 180 days from the date of the Court’s ruling. Asetek received an initial payment of $0.5 million from CoolIT Systems in July 2015 and with the balance of the settlement now received, the matter is closed. The $1.4 million will be recorded in the fourth quarter 2015 financial statements.
