In connection with the claim brought by certain US citizens against the Company, RCS & RDS S.A., RCS Management S.A., DIGI Tavkozlesi es Szolgaltato Kft, and its subsidiary, i-TV Digitalis Tavkozlesi Zrt. (the “Defendants”) in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia – Alexandria Division (the “US Court”), which we have previously disclosed in our periodic reports, the Company would like to inform its investors and the market that, on 8 February 2018, the US Court granted the Defendants’ motion to vacate and dismissed the entire lawsuit for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. The US Court also vacated all prior orders entered in the case. This order may be appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit within 30 days. The Company welcomes the US Court’s decision and will continue to vigorously defend against any of these plaintiffs’ allegations that are vexatious and groundless if the dismissal is ultimately appealed.
