Energizer Holdings, Inc. announced a victory for Schick's German affiliate, Wilkinson Sword GmBH. The German Court ruled that the Wilkinson Sword's four-bladed QUATTRO does not infringe Gillette's European patent regarding three-bladed progressive exposure.

This ruling follows a similar ruling in 2004 by Judge Saris of the United States District Court of Massachusetts denying Gillette's request for a preliminary injunction in the United States.

In addition, the German Court ordered Gillette to reimburse Energizer's court costs.

"We are very pleased with the court's ruling that QUATTRO does not infringe Gillette's patent," said Joe Lynch, president of Schick-Wilkinson Sword. "Gillette has been very aggressive at attempting to impede the launch and sale of QUATTRO around the globe. The German and U.S. court rulings confirm Schick's position that its QUATTRO technology has never infringed Gillette's patent. Schick-Wilkinson Sword is proud of its extensive portfolio of patents and the innovative technology utilized in all of its products, including QUATTRO."

Energizer Holdings, headquartered in St. Louis, MO, U.S., is the parent company of Schick-Wilkinson Sword.
