Nano-Proprietary, Inc. Announces Verdict in Canon Litigation

Austin, TX | Posted on May 3rd, 2007

"While we are disappointed by the jury's verdict, we need to keep in mind that we already had the most important victory in the case when the Court validated our termination of Canon's license as a result of their material breach of the contract," said Tom Bijou, Chief Executive officer of Nano-Proprietary, Inc. "We were also pleased that during the trial, Canon confirmed its plans to move forward with its SED TV and continue to believe that the advent of field emission display televisions will be a signal event for Nano-Proprietary. We made a significant gesture to Canon during the course of the trial that we hope will provide a framework of cooperation and negotiation for the future. Nothing about today's verdict changes the fact that we have significant intellectual property that we believe will have to be licensed by anybody, including Canon, that wishes to sell televisions based on electron emissions in the broad geographical areas of the world where our IP is in effect. The vast majority of our revenue forecast for 2007 has little to do with televisions. Our growth in the materials and sensor business continues to be one of the drivers of our future."
