14:33 EDTLLNWLimelight Networks says Tuition Build offer is not an actionable proposal
Limelight Networks announced that it has received an unsolicited offer to purchase the company from an entity that management believes is a non-credible source. Under the proposal, first reported by media outlets, then confirmed via phone and follow up email, on June 13, Tuition Build has offered to purchase and take private Limelight Networks for $644.7M or $6.55 per share if certain unspecified financial thresholds were satisfied. Representatives of the company contacted Tuition Build to make inquiries regarding its proposal and ability to complete the proposed transaction. Based on these inquiries, as well as independent investigations of Tuition Build, management has concluded that Tuition Build does not have the experience, credentials, financial resources, or capability to complete the proposed transaction, and that Tuition Build’s stated interest in acquiring Limelight Networks is not an actionable proposal. Accordingly, management believes current and prospective investors in Limelight Networks should disregard Tuition Build’s proposal.

14:02 EDTLLNWLimelight Networks seeks Supreme Court review of Circuit's Akami decision
Limelight Networks (LLNW) is seeking review by the Supreme Court of the United States of the Federal Circuit's decision to reinstate the 2008 jury verdict that Limelight infringed an Akamai (AKAM) patent. Limelight filed its petition with the Supreme Court earlier. Limelight believes that the Federal Circuit's newly created conduct-attribution standard improperly expands the scope of liability in a fashion that was neither intended by Congress nor consistent with prior legal precedent. As the petition notes, prior to the August 2015 decision to reinstate the jury verdict, the Federal Circuit repeatedly ruled that the district court had correctly determined that Limelight did not infringe Akamai's patent. The court gave no adequate explanation for its sudden reversal. "The court's decision to abandon longstanding, clear and easy-to-follow rules of engagement in favor of an ambiguous 'particular facts presented' standard for infringement liability deprives parties of fair notice concerning the scope of patent protection and ensures a significant increase in needlessly burdensome litigation throughout the technology world," said Bob Lento, Limelight's chief executive officer. "We are hopeful that the Supreme Court will address this issue of extraordinary importance and reverse the Federal Circuit's rootless and erroneous standard. While we continue to pursue all available options, I want to thank our customers, peers in the industry and employees for their support. We remain focused on improving our operational and financial performance and will report our full year results on February 9th."
