Second Quarter Licensing and Litigation Review:
On April 7, 2015, Finjan entered into a Patent License Agreement with F-Secure Corporation, a company incorporated in Finland. The agreement calls for F-Secure to pay Finjan $1,000,000 in cash, of which $700,000 was paid on April 22, 2015 and the remainder is due on and before March 31, 2016. Additionally, F-Secure will assign Finjan two patents, U.S. Patent Nos. 8,474,048 and 7,769,991. In exchange, Finjan agreed to, subject to certain restrictions, limits and other conditions, grant F-Secure a worldwide, fully-paid, nonexclusive field of use license to Finjan patents within two years of the effective date.

On August 4, 2015, the jury in Finjan, Inc. v. Blue Coat Systems Inc. (5:13-cv-03999-BLF) returned a unanimous verdict that each of the Finjan asserted patents are valid and enforceable. Further, the jury returned a unanimous verdict that Finjan's U.S. Patent Nos. 6,154,844 (the "'844 Patent"), 6,804,780 (the "'780 Patent"), 6,965,968 (the "'968 Patent"), and the 7,418,731 (the "'731 Patent") were literally infringed by Blue Coat, and that U.S. Patent No. 7,647,633 (the "'633 Patent") was infringed by Blue Coat under the Doctrine of Equivalents. Upon the findings of infringement, the jury also decided that Finjan was entitled to $39.5 million in damages as reasonable royalties for Blue Coat's infringement.

Finjan has also filed a second patent infringement lawsuit against Blue Coat Systems, Inc. (Blue Coat), alleging infringement of seven Finjan patents relating to new infringing Blue Coat products and services.
