Patent Litigation:
In November 2011, the Company entered into a multi-year settlement and cross-license agreement with IBM pursuant to which Overland released all claims it had against IBM and Dell in connection with the patent infringement lawsuits it filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California and with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) against BDT AG and certain of its affiliates, Dell and IBM. However, Overland's infringement case against BDT and its affiliates continues and on June 21, 2012, the Chief Administrative Law Judge of the ITC issued a public notice of an initial determination affirming that both of Overland's asserted patents are valid. Overland Storage has petitioned the full Commission for a review of some of the Initial Determination's findings. The Commission has decided to review in part the Initial Determination on the merits, and the Commission is expected to issue its decision in a Final Determination by October 22, 2012. Upon completion of the ITC case, Overland plans to pursue monetary damages against BDT in District Court.
