While not confirmed by Samsung, the meeting is nevertheless very important for the two companies as the verdict is approaching quickly. According to the sources, the top executives failed to reach an agreement.
The court will announce its final verdict after the 19th. For Samsung this may translate into $930 million of damages payable to Apple.
