TOKYO and IRVINE, Calif. Oct. 14, 2005 — Toshiba Corporation (Toshiba) and its subsidiary, Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC), have announced their response to the Judgment entered today by the Superior Court of the State of California, the trial court (court of first instance), in the total amount of $465.368 million against Toshiba and TAEC, in the lawsuit with Lexar over claimed NAND Flash-related trade secret misappropriation.
The Entry of Judgment is a procedural step in a trial that comes after a jury verdict and before the filing of certain post-trial motions. The procedures at the trial court are ongoing, and as this litigation moves to its conclusion, we will continue to pursue all legal avenues available to us to correct what we believe to be an erroneous jury verdict in this case, including filing post-trial motions or applicable appeals.
At this time, Toshiba does not plan to revise its business performance projections for fiscal year 2005 due to this matter.
