Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited Wins Remote Electrical Tilt Patent Cancellation Case Against CommScope, Inc. and Andrew LLC with No Chance of Appeal

Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited has won an antenna patent lawsuit against Carlyle Group subsidiary CommScope, Inc., where the patent was irreversibly cancelled in China. In the legal action by Comba Telecom against CommScope and its subsidiary Andrew LLC to invalidate the antenna-related patents in China, the Beijing High People's Court and the Patent Reexamination Office of the State Intellectual Property Office revoked the patent on remote electrical tilt (RET) technology used in base station antennas as asserted by Andrew in the litigation. The ruling by the Patent Reexamination Office was final and conclusive, and CommScope no longer has any avenues to appeal. The ruling echoes similar cases against CommScope and Andrew: other antenna vendors have successfully applied for the cancellation of Andrew's RET patents in Europe where Andrew's appeal was rejected and the patents finally revoked by the European Patent Office in November 2011. In response to CommScope's statement on 4 February 2013, Comba Telecom takes the position that CommScope's patent infringement case on phase shifter technology is without merit and has appealed the court decision and the decision has not become effective yet and the litigation process is still ongoing. Furthermore, based on the relative small amount of the damages, the Group does not consider that there will be any material implications on the Group in respect of such litigation and court decision.
