Paxar Corp resolves lawsuit against Zebra Technologies

Sep '06
Paxar Corporation announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Paxar Americas Inc ("Paxar"), settled the litigation it brought in 2003 against Zebra Technologies Corporation ("Zebra") in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. Trial had been scheduled to commence in January 2007.

Paxar's suit alleged violation of eight of its patents involving more than 50 Zebra products. The settlement included a payment to Paxar of $63,750,000 resulting in after tax proceeds of approximately $34,000,000 that will provide GAAP earnings of approximately $25,000,000 in the third quarter.

Additionally, a paid-up license has been granted to Zebra under the patents-in-suit and other related patents, the license to use certain patents being limited in time and scope.

Rob van der Merwe, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Paxar's actions with respect to this suit clearly demonstrate that we will vigorously pursue any and all companies that infringe our intellectual property."

"Paxar's history of innovation and technological leadership across our business lines is the life blood of our Company and we will continue to invest in technology to further extend our leadership position for the benefit of our customers."

Mr. van der Merwe continued, "While we are convinced that Paxar would have prevailed had the case proceeded to a jury verdict, the opportunity to settle this suit favorably to Paxar, before trial, enables us to return to focusing on managing our business."

"We will use the funds received under the settlement to grow our business both organically and through acquisitions."
