The Babcock & Wilcox Company Provides Legal Update

On December 17, 2014, an unfavorable jury verdict was delivered against The Babcock & Wilcox Company and certain of its subsidiaries in a case entitled AREVA NP, INC. f/k/a Framatome ANP Inc. v. The Babcock & Wilcox Company, et. al., in the amount of approximately $16 million. The company strongly disagreed with the verdict and believes the plaintiff's claims are without merit. B&W is evaluating its post-trial remedies, including a possible appeal to the Supreme Court of Virginia. The case was filed August 26, 2011 in the Circuit Court for the City of Lynchburg, Commonwealth of Virginia and alleged that B&W owed royalties on certain commercial nuclear contracts performed by the Company since 2004.
