In December 2014, Yodlee filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware alleging that Plaid Technologies Inc. (“Plaid”) had and was continuing to infringe on seven of Yodlee’s U.S. patents. The complaint sought unspecified monetary damages, enhanced damages, interest, fees, expenses, costs and injunctive relief against Plaid. In May 2016, Plaid filed its answer to Yodlee’s complaint as well as counterclaims seeking declaratory judgment that Yodlee’s patents were not infringed and were invalid and unenforceable. In addition, Plaid’s counterclaims also alleged, among other things, violation of federal antitrust and false advertising laws and unfair competition under California state law and common law. The counterclaims sought unspecified monetary damages, enhanced damages, interest, fees, expenses, costs and injunctive relief against Yodlee. During the course of the litigation, Plaid also filed petitions for review before the Patent Office’s Board of Patent Trials and Appeals against the seven Yodlee patents that were the subject of the lawsuit as well as a petition for reexamination against one of the patents. On January 31, 2017, Yodlee and Plaid agreed to resolve the lawsuit brought by Yodlee, the counterclaims brought by Plaid and the review petitions brought by Plaid before the Patent Office. Plaid also agreed not to participate further in the reexamination proceedings which the Patent Office may elect to continue without Plaid’s participation. As part of the resolution of the lawsuit, Plaid will license Envestnet’s worldwide patent portfolio.
