CLASS 7 - SILICONE GEL MATERIAL CLAIMS

Approximately 15,492 claimants in Class 7 – Silicone Gel Material Claims – have been approved for either an Expedited Release Payment ($600) or a Disease Cash-Out Offer ($3,000). Total payments to date from the Class 7 Fund are approximately $22.8 million. The total fund is $57.5 million NPV. The Settlement Facility continues to review Proof of Manufacturer claims in Class 7 and expects to complete all Proof of Manufacturer reviews within the next few months and they will begin to process Class 7 disease claims after that. We are doing everything we can to urge the Settlement Facility to expedite the Class 7 Proof of Manufacturer reviews. As Proof of Manufacturer (POM) claims are approved, the Settlement Facility will send either the Class 7 Expedited Release Payment to eligible claimants who selected this option or a Disease Cash-Out Offer to claimants who selected the disease review.

There are a number of pending appeals before the Claims Administrator and Appeals Judge regarding the marshaling requirement for certain Class 7 claimants. No decision has been made on these appeals. We will update you on this as soon as the information is available.
