Item 8.01 Other Events.

On September 24, 2015, a jury verdict was returned against ACI Worldwide Corp., a subsidiary of ACI Worldwide, Inc. (the “Company”), for $43.8 million in connection with counterclaims brought in a lawsuit involving BHMI, Inc. (“BHMI”) in the District Court of Douglas County, Nebraska. Previously, the Company had sued BHMI for the misappropriation of the Company’s trade secrets in a jury trial, and the jury found that the Company had not met its burden of proof regarding these claims. BHMI then asserted counterclaims for breach of a non-disclosure agreement, tortious interference and violation of the Nebraska anti-monopoly statute, all of which were alleged to arise out of the Company’s filing of its claim. On September 24, 2015, the jury found for BHMI on its three claims and awarded $43.8 million in damages. The court has yet to determine whether BHMI will be awarded any attorneys fees and costs. The Company disagrees with the results and intends to appeal the dismissal of the claims against BHMI and the verdict in favor of BHMI on its counterclaims.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
