In November 2002, L-3 Communications Corporation brought suit against us in the District Court for the Southern District of New York seeking a declaratory judgment that L-3 Communications Corporation had not breached its obligations to us concerning the acquisition of PerkinElmers Security Detection Systems Business. We asserted counterclaims against L-3 Communications Corporation for, among other things, fraud and breach of fiduciary duty.
On May 24, 2006, the jury in the case returned a verdict in our favor and awarded us $125 million in damages.
The jury found that L-3 Communications Corporation had breached its fiduciary duty to us and had committed fraud. The jury awarded us $33 million in compensatory damages and $92 million in punitive damages. In addition, the jury also found that we had breached a confidentiality agreement and awarded L-3 Communications Corporation nominal damages of one dollar. L-3 Communications Corporation announced that it intends to appeal the case.
On May 25, 2006, we issued a press release announcing the jurys decision in this case. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein in its entirety by this reference.
