FARO Announces Court Case Will Move Forward

LAKE MARY, Fla., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- FARO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: FARO), the world market leader in portable computer-aided measurement arms and laser tracker sales, announced today that the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida has denied FARO's and the individual defendants' motion to dismiss the consolidated second amended securities class action complaint, as filed against FARO and those individuals.

"The court stated that it was required to accept as true the allegations of the complaint, and to construe all reasonable inferences therein in the light most favorable to the plaintiff. Although we are disappointed with the decision, we also realize that the court did not rule upon the merits of the lawsuit, but simply allowed it to proceed. We continue to believe that the plaintiff's claims are without merit, and we intend to vigorously defend against them," said Jay Freeland, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer.
