The cybersecurity company and Blue Coat have agreed to a confidential term sheet, with a final agreement expected to be in place by 28 Feb 2018.

Finjan shares surged 34.5% to $2.38 in Monday trading on the news.

With the agreement, a retrial scheduled to start Feb 12 has been vacated. The new jury trial would have addressed additional liability issues revolving around two Finjan patents.
