that a jury in the U.S. District Court for District of Arizona found
thatTaiwan Union Technology Corporation(TUC) had directly and indirectly
infringed key patents held by its U.S.-based subsidiary, ISOLA USA Corp. The

willful infringement also means the Court has discretion to treble the
damages awarded to Isola, and to award attorney's fees and costs to the
company.

Isola's President and CEO. "The jury's verdict is the culmination of more
