Item 8.01. Other Events.

We have previously reported that an arbitration panel has awarded Tessera royalties of $113 million plus interest in our long-running dispute with Tessera Technologies, Inc. related to a license agreement. In 2013, we filed a petition in the Superior Court for San Francisco County to vacate or correct a portion of the arbitration panel’s ruling relating to the panel’s authority to award royalties for the period after the termination of the license agreement. The Superior Court ruled against our petition and we appealed. On November 25, 2014, the California First District Court of Appeal affirmed the Superior Court’s ruling. We intend to file a petition for review before the California Supreme Court.

Other proceedings with respect to the arbitration award in California state court and the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, which we describe more fully in our previous filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, remain pending.
