WHAT IS THE CLASS ACTION ALL ABOUT?
- DRAM (dynamic random access memory) manufacturers are alleged to have fixed prices between April 1, 1999, and June 30, 2002, inflating prices paid by Canadian consumers and Canadian entities, like businesses. The companies involved are Elpida, Micron, Nanya, NEC, Hitachi, Samsung, Hynix, Infineon, Mitsubishi, Toshiba and Winbond.
- Many class action lawsuits were settled out of court: close to $80 million in settlement funds were obtained for the benefit of all Canadians and Canadian entities who bought electronics between April 1, 1999, and June 30, 2002.
WHO IS LEADING THE CLASS ACTION?

The claims period ended on June 23, 2015. The lawyers and the claims administrator have been working hard since then to process the over 1 million claims that were received.
Over 880,000 claims for the $20 simplified benefit were mailed out to those claimants in December. The cheques sent will become stale-dated on June 11, 2016. Cash your cheque now, if you haven’t done so already.
All Other Claims (Standard Claims)

The Standard Form Claims have not yet been approved for payment by the Courts, but this approval is expected to occur in May 2016 with the mailing of cheques to follow shortly thereafter.
