Volcano Corporation Announces Litigation Status
Date:2/5/2010

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC) today announced that the jury in the litigation filed by Lightlab Imaging, Inc. on January 7, 2009 in the Superior Court of Massachusetts, Suffolk County reached a verdict against Volcano and its wholly owned subsidiary, Axsun Technologies.  In December 2008, Volcano acquired Axsun, which had an agreement to supply tunable lasers to Lightlab for use in Lightlab's OCT (Optical Coherence Technology) imaging products until April 2016, with exclusivity in the field of coronary artery imaging expiring in April 2014.  Since the acquisition, Axsun has continued to supply lasers to Lightlab.  The jury findings included that the contract specification for the laser Axsun supplies to Lightlab is a trade secret of Lightlab, that Axsun agreed not to sell any tunable lasers for use in cardiology imaging to any third party during the exclusivity period in the contract, and that Axsun breached its contract with Lightlab.  The jury further found that Volcano intentionally interfered with Lightlab's advantageous business relationship with Axsun. The jury was not charged with determining damages, which, if any, would be established in a second jury trial.

Volcano intends to appeal the jury verdict and is not in the position to estimate the possible loss attributable to this verdict. Volcano does not believe that this development will have a material impact on Volcano's OCT program or Axsun's business.
