STMicroelectronics Says It Has Been Ordered To Pay $59 Mln To NXP

STMicroelectronics (STM) said on April 5, 2012, it has been ordered to pay around $59 million to NXP Semiconductors Netherlands B.V., following an award from an arbitration tribunal set up according to the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce, or ICC.

STMicroelectronics stated that although it is clearly disappointed with the results of this arbitration, which were unexpected, the company is encouraged by the fact that in its award the ICC Tribunal states that it has chosen not to address certain issues which STMicroelectronics has raised, and that will be part of a second arbitration before the same ICC tribunal. A hearing for the second arbitration is scheduled in June 2012 with a final decision expected during the following twelve months, the company added.

STMicroelectronics noted that the award will be recognized in its first quarter 2012 results and is currently estimated to have a negative impact on its cost of sales.
