Marvell Technology Group Ltd. and Carnegie Mellon University Announce Settlement

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 17, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —  Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a global leader in integrated silicon solutions, and Carnegie Mellon University, a private research university, today announced that, pursuant to a court-ordered mediation, the Company and University have settled their patent infringement lawsuit.  The parties have resolved the case on mutually acceptable terms, including an aggregate payment by Marvell to CMU of $750 million, with no ongoing royalty payments.

This settlement concludes the legal matter filed almost seven years ago. As previously disclosed, in December of 2012, CMU obtained a jury verdict against the Company in the U.S. District Court of W.D. Pennsylvania in the amount of approximately $1.54 billion (plus an ongoing royalty) based on patent infringement claims.  This settlement will resolve all pending appeals.

As of January 30, 2016, the Company's cash and short term investments exceeded $2.3 billion. Marvell had previously recorded approximately $388 million for litigation reserves in fiscal 2016 related to CMU.
