Research in Motion settles patent litigations with Visto
Posted on 17-Jul-2009 11:27. | Tags Filed under: News.



Research In Motion Limited and Visto Corporation have entered into a definitive agreement to settle all outstanding worldwide patent litigation between the companies.

The key terms of the settlement involve RIM receiving a perpetual and fully-paid license on all Visto patents, a transfer of certain Visto intellectual property, a one-time payment by RIM of US$ 267.5 million and the parties executing full and final releases in respect of all outstanding worldwide litigation.

The settlement is expected to be completed during the week of July 20, 2009 and is subject to certain closing conditions.

Based on preliminary analysis, RIM expects the majority of the payment to be expensed as an unusual item in the second quarter of fiscal 2010, with the remainder being classified as an intangible asset. Based on this analysis, RIM expects to report Q2 results that reflect U.S. GAAP earnings and earnings per share, as well as adjusted earnings and earnings per share, which would exclude the amount expensed as an unusual item.

Further terms and conditions of the agreement are confidential.
