Masimo: Regulation Fd Disclosure
The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing
On April 30, 2014, Masimo Corporation (“Masimo” or the “Company”) held a conference call to discuss its first quarter 2014 financial results and its outlook for the remainder of 2014. During the question and answer portion of the call, the Company incorrectly indicated that the next time Covidien Inc. can provide notice to terminate its covenant not to sue under the settlement agreement between Masimo and Covidien (the “Agreement”) is March 2015. In fact, Covidien has the right to terminate its covenant under the Agreement at any time upon at least 60-days written notice to the Company, in which case Masimo would have the right to assert patent infringement for products sold by Covidien after the date of termination. Since Covidien did not provide notice of termination in March 2014 when it first had the opportunity, we have assumed Covidien will continue to maintain its covenant under the Agreement for the foreseeable future.
