Revvity Granted Preliminary Injunction Against Cloud Software Group in Contract Dispute

NEW YORK – Revvity said Tuesday that a Massachusetts court has granted the company's request for a preliminary injunction against a software company that Revvity has accused of violating the terms of their agreement.

Waltham, Massachusetts-based Revvity is accusing the Tibco Software business unit Cloud Software Group of marketing CSG's Spotfire software in Revvity's exclusive markets. It said that the order from the Massachusetts Superior Court directs CSG to comply with the terms of its contract with Revvity, including halting all marketing, sales, and support activities in Revvity's exclusive markets and continuing to provide maintenance services to Revvity.

When it went under the PerkinElmer name, Revvity signed a licensing agreement with Tibco in 2012 for the exclusive global rights to market Tibco's Spotfire software in R&D markets. The firms said at the time that then-PerkinElmer was responsible for growing and servicing the Spotfire business in certain scientific markets.

Revvity announced last month that it was seeking an injunction against CSG on allegations of contract violations, but the company has not detailed its accusations against CSG.

Tibco and CSG officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday regarding the preliminary injunction.

Revvity said that the order ensures uninterrupted service to Revvity and the customers who use the Spotfire software.

"This ruling underscores the strength of our legal position in this matter and, more importantly, the importance of Revvity's domain knowledge and expertise in serving our valued customers as they advance their science," Kevin Willoe, senior VP and general manager for Revvity Signals Software, said in a statement.
