ATopTech Plans to Contest Verdict

SANTA CLARA, CA – March 10, 2016–ATopTech, a leader in next-generation physical design solutions, says that it is obviously disappointed with the result of the trial today (against Synopsys) and plans to pursue all of its post-trial options to contest the verdict.The verdict itself is not a final judgment at this stage, since other issues in the case, including affirmative claims by ATopTech, remain to be decided.

ATopTech is pleased that the jury rejected Synopsys’ breach of contract claims and that it prevailed on one of the two copyrighted products involved in the case.ATopTech strongly feels that the verdict results from the application of incorrect legal standards, particularly since it was proven that there was no loss of any sales for PrimeTime, the only copyrighted product that remained in the case when it went to the jury.

Fortunately, the verdict will not affect ATopTech’s current version of Aprisa, which was introduced in October of last year.The current version of Aprisa does not contain the material that was alleged to have been copyrighted in the case and that material will not be included in any future Aprisa releases.

ATopTech will continue to support its customers and continue to provide them with all of the superior features that Aprisa offers. Nothing in the decision today will reduce ATopTech’s continued commitment to and support of its customers or its continued sale of the current and future versions of Aprisa, which do not operate using the allegedly copyrighted material involved in the case.
