TCS says no IP infringement in Epic Systems case; Company to defend its position
MUMBAI, April 16, 2016: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, today announced that it had received a jury verdict in a recently completed jury trial in a lawsuit filed by Epic Systems in the court of Western District Madison, Wisconsin.
It is expected that the trial judgment will be entered in the case in the next six to eight weeks, following which the parties can file an appeal within 30 days after the judgment is filed.
While TCS respects the legal process, the jury’s verdict on liability and damages was unexpected as the Company believes they are unsupported by the evidence presented during the trial.
The Company did not misuse or derive any benefit from downloaded documents from Epic System’s user-web portal. TCS plans to defend its position vigorously in appeals to higher courts. TCS appreciates the trial judge’s announcement from the bench that he is almost certain he will reduce the damages award.
TCS did not misuse or benefit from any of the said information for development of its own hospital management system “Med Mantra’ which was implemented for a large hospital chain in India in 2009.
The Jury verdict will not have any impact on the TCS Q4 and FY16 financial results to be announced on Monday 18 April.
As an organization, TCS remains committed to protecting IP as well as its reputation and financial interests fully.
