A few of the pending class actions where DuPont thinks it may have a claim: � WorldCom, Inc. The class involves all buyers of WorldCom publicly traded securities who purchased bonds and shares from April 29, 1999, through June 25, 2002. The suit in New York federal court alleges that the company misled investors in analyst reports, press releases, public statements, and regulatory filings in connection with WorldCom’s $5 billion and $11.8 billion bond offerings in May 2000 and May 2001, respectively. The case is still pending. � Microsoft Corporation. Three cases in California, North Carolina, and Tennessee state courts allege that Microsoft violated antitrust and unfair competition laws by overcharging for operating system, word processing, and spreadsheet software, starting in 1995 and, depending on the case, ending in 2001 or 2002. All three states have settled. Software customers will receive vouchers for future purchases. The settlements are not yet finalized. � Synfuel Technologies, LLC v. Airborne Express, Inc. Plaintiffs in Illinois federal court claim that Airborne’s use of a five-pound default weight rate for “Letter Express” packages resulted in overcharges to customers. The suit applies to Letter Express packages sent between April 1992 and November 2003. The case is still pending. � Warmack-Muskogee L.P. v. PricewaterhouseCoopers. As a result of a December agreement in Arkansas state court, PwC and other defendants (including Ernst & Young and KPMG) agreed to pay $54.5 million to settle charges that they overcharged clients for travel-related costs and expenses, such as air travel, car rentals, and lodging, between October 1991 and December 31, 2002.
