MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISSI) announced today that a jury found in favor of ISSI as to all causes of action alleged against the company by GSI Technology, Inc.

Other GSI claims, including antitrust allegations, were dismissed in pre-trial rulings.

"We invested a lot of time and effort to defend this case.  However, after more than two years plus a several week jury trial, we are very pleased with this favorable verdict," commented ISSI's President and Chief Executive Officer, Scott Howarth.

ISSI was represented in this litigation by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, P.C.

The verdict remains subject to potential post-trial motions and/or a potential appeal by GSI.
