Eltek settles Cyprus case

August 12, 2011 - London

Eltek ASA and several other parties have entered into a settlement agreement with Digimed Communication in Cyprus, under which Eltek has agreed to pay USD 100,000 to Digimed. This fully and finally settles all disputes between Eltek, Digimed and the other parties to the settlement agreement.

Digimed had put forward claims towards nine legal entities, including Nera ASA, related to issues that arose before Eltek merged with Nera in 2006, and Eltek retained the responsibilities associated with the claim when Nera Satcom was divested the same year.

Reference is made to note 29 in Eltek's Annual Report for 2010, where the combined claims from Digimed towards the nine legal entities were preliminary estimated to approximately NOK 100 million.
