Other Events
On August 30, 2018, Network-1 Technologies, Inc. ("Network-1") issued a press release announcing that Judge Robert Schroeder III of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas Tyler Division, issued a Final Judgment (the "Final Judgment") and corresponding order in Network-1's patent litigation case against Hewlett-Packard.  As part of his Order, Judge Schroeder granted Network-1's Motion for Judgment as a Matter of Law that Network-1's Remote Power Patent is valid, thereby overturning the jury verdict of invalidity from the November 2017 trial against Hewlett-Packard.  The Court also issued its findings of fact and conclusions of law that Hewlett-Packard failed to meet its burden on its inequitable conduct defense, which was the subject of a separate bench trial held in May 2018.  In its Final Judgment, the Court also denied Network-1's Motion for a New Trial on Infringement.  Network-1 intends to appeal the jury verdict of non-infringement to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C.
A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
