Hytera Communications Corp. Ltd. and Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH learned that on July 17th the Regional Court in Mannheim, Germany had decided that a squelch and noise suppression functionality of our two-way radios sold in Germany by Hytera Mobilfunk infringes a patent held by Motorola Solution, Inc. (MSI). This is a court of first instance ruling.
Hytera disagrees with the finding of the Regional Court of Mannheim. We are reviewing the ruling and will appeal. In the meantime, however, Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH will suspend the sale of products that might be affected by the related injunction in Germany. Hytera continues to believe that our products do not infringe and that the patent asserted is invalid.
Hytera's dealers and customers benefit from a full range of high-quality, high-performance devices with functionality for a wide range of applications. Hytera will continue to develop and deliver innovative, high-quality professional mobile radio solutions to our dealers and customers in Germany and around the world.
