Significant Suppliers

 

Zebra sources some of our component parts from sole suppliers. A disruption in the supply of such component parts could have a material adverse effect on our operations and financial results.

 

Renesas Technology America, Inc. is the sole supplier of microprocessors for certain Zebra printers. Renesas informed Zebra that some of Renesas’ microprocessors were found to infringe a United States patent owned by Translogic Technology, Inc. An injunction against Renesas was subsequently stayed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The affected microprocessors are used in certain Zebra printers which represented less than 5% of Zebra’s total sales during the third quarter of 2005, and such percentage may increase in the future. In a parallel proceeding, the United States Patent and Trademark Office ruled that all claims of Translogic’s patent are invalid. This ruling was affirmed by the PTO’s Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences. These rulings are the subject of appeals, and based upon the PTO’s actions, Zebra and Renesas believe Renesas will prevail. However, if Translogic prevails in the appeals process, Translogic could disrupt Zebra’s access to the affected microprocessors, which may have an adverse effect on our operations and financial results.
