08:43 EDTGCIGannett responds to Icahn actions
Gannett Co. responded to an amended Form 13D filing by Carl Icahn and affiliates, who own approximately 6.6% of Gannett, disclosing nomination of two candidates for election to Gannett’s Board of Directors at Gannett’s 2015 Annual Shareholders’ Meeting. Icahn also disclosed submission of precatory proposals that would require certain corporate governance provisions at Gannett and at the new publishing company that will be formed upon completion of Gannett’s planned separation later this year. Gannett’s Board of Directors will evaluate the submission and make a recommendation to Gannett shareholders in due course. Marge Magner, non-executive chairman of Gannett’s Board, said, “We are surprised by Mr. Icahn’s aggressive actions, including his threat to run a proxy contest to force wholesale changes in Gannett’s corporate governance and dictate the corporate governance of a company whose governance profile has yet to be determined. His overreaching campaign to advance his own agenda will not deter the Board of Gannett from continuing to serve the interests of all of our shareholders. In addition to performing well, Gannett has a strong track record of shareholder engagement and sound corporate governance. As we execute on the separation of our publishing business this year, shareholder interests will remain our priority.” Gracia Martore, president and chief executive officer of Gannett, said, “Gannett is a shareholder-focused company that has consistently delivered strong returns for our owners. Since the launch of our strategic transformation plan three years ago, we have achieved significant revenue growth and margin expansion. During that same period, we have made attractive acquisitions to execute on our announced strategy, our stock price has more than doubled and total shareholder return has exceeded 265%, outpacing the S&P 500 and our peers by a wide margin.” Martore continued, “Our strong and independent Board has been a driving force behind our strategic transformation and our previously announced plan to separate into two publicly traded companies – a plan Mr. Icahn publicly supported following our announcement last summer and continues to support now.”

08:07 EDTGOOGUSPTO Examiner reconfirms patentability of Netlist's LRDIMM patent claims
Netlist (NLST) announced that the Examiner in the consolidated reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,619,912 issued an Answer maintaining the patentability of 92 claims related to LRDIMM. The reexaminations were brought in the United States Patent and Trademark Office by Google (GOOG), Inphi Corporation, and SMART Modular Technologies. The 92 patentable claims are generally directed to the fundamental concept of rank multiplication which is integral to the design of the LRDIMM. The Examiner issued the Answer on January 14, 2015, in response to voluminous appeal briefs filed by Google, Inphi, and SMART Modular. The Examiner considered arguments from all parties and ultimately maintained his conclusions as to the patentability of these claims, while maintaining the rejection of 11 other claims. The parties will now have the opportunity to file rebuttal briefs before the reexamination proceeds to the Patent Trial and Appeals Board for oral arguments, likely later this year or early next. The '912 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Google in the Northern District of California and Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California. Both sets of litigation have been stayed pending the outcome of this and other reexamination proceedings.
