Elliott Statement on Proposal to Uniper21.3.2019 07:00:00 CETPressemelding

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott”) has written to the Management Board of Uniper SE (the “Company” or “Uniper”), to formally request the convocation of an Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) with the express purpose of instructing management to prepare a lawful domination agreement with the Company’s largest shareholder Fortum Oyj (“Fortum”). Elliott believes the thus far ill-defined and ambiguous nature of the relationship between Uniper and Fortum has created an unsatisfactory and unsustainable dynamic, which is detrimental to Uniper. In Elliott’s view, the status quo – operational underperformance and pervasive uncertainty – if sustained, will risk further undermining the Company’s fundamental value. Elliott believes a timely shareholder vote to advance a domination agreement may resolve the prolonged uncertainty at Uniper and clarify the relationship between the Company and Fortum, such that value can be created for the Company and all stakeholders. Elliott believes that F

Key UK SEP Patent Win for TQ Delta20.3.2019 19:03:00 CETPressemelding

TQ Delta LLC, a technology development and licensing firm, secured a judgment on March 18 by the High Court of Justice of England and Wales immediately enjoining ZyXEL Communications UK Ltd and its Danish parent company, ZyXEL Communications A/S, from further infringement of TQ Delta's European Patent (UK) 1 453 268. TQ Delta's patent relates to Digital Subscriber Line ("DSL") technology. In an earlier judgment, handed down on March 12, the Court found that the patent was valid and essential to the operation of ADSL2 and VDSL2. In that judgment, the Court held that the ZyXEL defendants have infringed and continue to infringe the patent. The Court also found that a second patent would have also been essential and infringed but was invalid. In its judgment earlier this week, the Court also found that the ZyXEL defendants were "holding out" against taking a licence to TQ Delta's portfolio of patents relating to DSL. It granted an immediate injunction and costs against the ZyXEL defendants
