Item 8.01.  Other Events.

On December 3, 2018, Finjan Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Finjan, Inc. (“Finjan”), announced that Finjan has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Qualys, Inc., a Delaware corporation with headquarters in Foster City, California (“Qualys”), in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Finjan filed the Complaint (Case No. 3:18-cv-07229), on November 29, 2018, and alleges that Qualys’ products and services infringed and are continuing to infringe at least seven of Finjan’s U.S. patents. Specifically, Finjan asserts that Qualys’ Malware Detection Systems (MDS), Web Application Firewall (WAF), Web Application Scanner (WAS), and Vulnerability (VM) solutions, including Qualys Cloud Platform products, infringe U.S. Patent Nos. 6,154,844; 6,965,968; 7,418,731; 7,975,305; 8,141,154; 8,225,408; and 8,677,494 (collectively “the Asserted Patents”). Finjan is seeking, among other things, a jury trial, past damages not less than a reasonable royalty, enhanced damages for willful, wanton and deliberate infringement, and reasonable attorneys' fees and costs for infringement of each of the Asserted Patents. Additionally, Finjan is seeking preliminary and permanent injunctive relief against Qualys and those in privity with them, from infringing and inducing the infringement of the ‘968, ‘731, ‘305, ‘154, and ‘408 Patents.

A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information in this current report on Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
