Item 8.01 Other Events.

On January 31, 2012, Bitstream Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Bitstream”), received a voluntary request for information from the United States Department of Justice (the “DOJ”). The DOJ also informed Bitstream that it will likely request additional information and may issue a Civil Investigative Demand (“CID”) to Bitstream pursuant to the Antitrust Civil Process Act of 1976. The voluntary request for information, and if issued by the DOJ, the CID, seek documentary materials and information regarding the proposed merger between Bitstream and Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. Bitstream is in the process of responding to the DOJ’s request and intends to work cooperatively with the DOJ to resolve any issues that the DOJ may raise concerning the transaction.

Completion of the proposed merger remains subject to approval by Bitstream’s stockholders, the absence of any order or other action that is in effect by a governmental authority with jurisdiction over the transaction (whether temporary, preliminary or permanent) restraining, enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the consummation of the merger, and the satisfaction or waiver of the other closing conditions specified in the merger agreement.
