ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS

On October 17, 2011, the Registrant publicly disseminated a press release announcing that it has won a favorable jury verdict in its patent infringement lawsuit against Hologic, Inc. in the United States District Court, Northern District of California. The jury has awarded Conceptus $18.8 million in monetary damages.

The jury found that use of Hologic’s Adiana Permanent Contraception system infringed two claims of the Registrants’ U.S. Patent Number 6,634,361 related to the Essure procedure, and that Hologic indirectly infringed those claims. The jury also upheld the validity of the claims.

The Registrant will seek an injunction prohibiting Hologic from importing, using, selling or offering to sell its Adiana system in the United States. This issue will be addressed by the Court in future proceedings.
