Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

Digital Ally held a conference call reporting its First Quarter Operating Results on May 15, 2019. During such call, Digital Ally’s CEO Stanton Ross and CFO Tom Heckman made certain statements regarding the Company’s recent settlement of patent litigation between it and WatchGuard. Upon reviewing the transcript of the call, the Company is clarifying those statements.

 

The factual details relating to the Settlement Agreement are set forth in detail in the Company’s Form 10-Q and Form 8-K, including the publicly disseminated Press Release, which is included as an Exhibit. Any statements made by Messrs. Ross and Heckman are qualified in their entirety by reference to those documents.

 

The license granted to WatchGuard in the Settlement Agreement lasts through December 31, 2023.

During the term of the license, WatchGuard is not required to remove any auto-activation features from its products. WatchGuard may offer auto-activation after the license term if its products include certain agreed-upon modified recording functionality that the parties already have agreed does not infringe the Company’s auto-activation patents.

 

The Company and Messrs. Ross or Heckman have no knowledge of WatchGuard’s thinking or strategy regarding the Settlement Agreement, the underlying litigation, or WatchGuard’s motivation for entering into the Settlement Agreement.
