On April 3, 2008, the Company entered into a four-year sale and lease back transaction of a portion of its 300mm equipment in its Dresden facility. The lease will be accounted for as capital lease in the three months ending June 30, 2008, whereby the present value of the respective lease payments of $43 million will be reflected as a capital obligation over the lease term.
On April 7, 2008, the indirect purchaser plaintiffs filed a petition with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for leave to file an immediate appeal of the order on the motion to dismiss. No decision has yet been issued by the Ninth Circuit.

On April 15, 2008, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California issued two orders in the New York and multistate state attorneys general cases on the defendants’ motions to dismiss. The order in the New York action denied defendants’ motion to dismiss. The order in the multistate state attorneys general case dismissed indirect purchaser claims under one state’s antitrust law and dismissed parens patriae claims on behalf of consumers under certain states’ consumer protection laws. The multistate order also granted defendants’ motion to strike any claim for relief seeking damages under certain states’ laws. The order denied defendants’ motion with respect to indirect purchaser claims under one state’s consumer protection statute and claims under certain states’ antitrust statutes (note 18).

On April 21, 2008 the Company announced a comprehensive cost reduction program designed to adjust its cost structure and lower its breakeven point. The Company targets €180 in annualized cost reductions compared to the current cost structure. These cost reductions are based on a combination of reducing workforce in the range of 10% on a worldwide basis and cutting its recurring costs. This includes a reduction in non-volatile memory development to basic research activities and the termination of the related agreement with Macronix. The Company expects to realize these savings in full starting in its 2009 financial year and to accrue any restructuring charges relating to this program by the end of its 2008 financial year.
On April 21, 2008 the Company announced that it has signed a technology license and foundry agreement with Winbond whereby Winbond will license the Company’s Buried Wordline technology for 65 nm manufacturing.

The strategic technology cooperation will leverage the strength of both companies to accelerate their roadmap to DRAM products featuring cell sizes of 4F2. The companies expect to conclude their negotiations and finalize definitive agreements in due course.
