Re: Comet Legal Action

 

XP Power, one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers of critical power solutions to the electronics industry, announces an update on the US lawsuit brought by Comet Technologies USA Inc., Comet AG, and YXLON International (collectively "Comet") against XP Power LLC, alleging trade secret misappropriation relating to radio frequency match and generator technology.

A jury trial for the lawsuit began on 14 March 2022 and on 23 March 2022, the jury found in favour of Comet, awarding damages of $40 million against XP Power.

 

XP Power was hopeful that it would prevail on all claims and appreciates the hard work the jury put into this case and respects the decision, however the Group is disappointed with the judgement, with which it does not agree. The Board will now consider the judgement in detail before deciding on next steps.

 

Further announcements will be made as appropriate.
