FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE FILES A PATENT INFRINGEMENT PROCEEDING AGAINST
RESMED IN AUSTRALIA
Auckland, New Zealand, 12 December 2017 - Fisher & Paykel Healthcare
announced today that it has filed a patent infringement proceeding in the
Federal Court of Australia against ResMed Ltd and several of its related
companies.

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare and ResMed are currently engaged in patent
proceedings in multiple countries. In the additional proceeding filed today,
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare alleges that ResMed''s AirSense 10, AirCurve 10, S9
and S9 VPAP flow generators, Lumis non-invasive ventilators, ClimateLine and
ClimateLineAir heated air tubing and HumidAir heated humidifier infringe four
patents held by Fisher & Paykel Healthcare. These products are used to treat
respiratory conditions. Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is seeking a range of
remedies, including damages and injunctions preventing the manufacture and
sale of these products by ResMed in Australia.

Lewis Gradon, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer said, "Over the
past 45 years we have made a considerable investment in our research and
development programme and built up a significant patent portfolio. We take
the infringement of our intellectual property rights very seriously and we
will continue to take whatever action is necessary to protect our
investment."

The company advises that the earnings guidance for its 2018 full year
results, as provided on 21 November 2017, remains unchanged.
