Intergraph And Intel Announce Settlement Of Alabama Patent Infringement Litigation

HUNTSVILLE, Ala./SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 15, 2002 -- Intergraph Corporation and Intel Corporation have settled the patent
infringement suit pending in U.S. District Court in Birmingham,
Alabama. Under terms of the settlement, the companies have signed
a cross license agreement; Intergraph will transfer ownership of
certain unrelated patents to Intel and Intel will pay Intergraph $300 million. Intel will take a one-time charge for approximately half of the payment, which will be reflected in the financial statements for the first quarter, scheduled for release on Tuesday.

A patent suit in U.S. Federal District Court in Marshall, Texas will
proceed as planned, but the companies have agreed on liquidated
damages depending upon the outcome of the case, including appeal.
The liquidated damages range from zero if Intel prevails, and $150
million if Intergraph prevails up to $250 million if Intergraph prevails on appeal. All other terms of the settlement are confidential.
