**The Court granted final approval to the settlement on June 29, 2017. However, please note that settlement checks will not be mailed until all funds have been received from the Settling Nortel Defendants. Because the bankruptcy estate cannot make final payments until all claims are resolved, this process may take a year or more, and SETTLEMENT CHECKS MAY NOT BE MAILED UNTIL DECEMBER 2018 or later.**
