Enea informs about increased financial significance of dispute with larger customer

As previously communicated, Enea has initiated arbitration proceedings with one of the company's largest customers regarding how to interpret the provisions on royalty calculation in the contract governing the use of Enea's OSE operating system in the customer's telecommunications equipment. As further announced, the dispute has subsequently extended to now also include a one-sided price reduction that the customer is introducing.

Based on the latest royalty report from the customer, the financial impact of the unilaterally introduced price cut is now growing. The discrepancy between agreed price and the lower price the customer unilaterally is applying, was previously of limited financial significance but now represents a negative difference of more than 6 MSEK in royalty for the second quarter of 2017 and is estimated to potentially reach between 20 and 30 MSEK for the full year of 2017.

Enea invoices the customer according to the existing agreement and through dialogue and customary reminders urges the customer to pay accordingly. Enea expects the customer to pay in accordance with the agreement, but Enea will otherwise have to initiate arbitration proceedings also for this part of the dispute. This will take time and incur costs.
