Item 8.01. Other Events.

On November 22, 2006, SAIC, Inc. issued a press release announcing that the Supreme Court of South Africa had issued a unanimous judgment affirming and reinstating a prior international arbitration award in favor of Telcordia Technologies, Inc. (“Telcordia”), a former wholly-owned subsidiary of Science Applications International Corporation (“SAIC”), against Telkom South Africa in a breach of contract dispute. SAIC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAIC, Inc. and SAIC retained legal and financial responsibility and control for this matter when Telcordia was sold in 2005

As disclosed in SAIC’s reports on Form 10-K and 10-Q, in September 2002 in an arbitration before the International Chamber of Commerce, the arbitrator ruled that Telkom South Africa had repudiated the contract and dismissed Telkom South Africa’s counterclaims against Telcordia. Telkom South Africa successfully challenged the validity of the arbitration award in the South African trial court and Telcordia appealed that decision to the South African Supreme Court. The South African Supreme Court set aside the trial court decision, thereby reinstating the original arbitration decision, and awarded Telcordia its attorneys fees in the South African trial court and Supreme Court proceedings. The next phase of the arbitration proceeding will be to determine the damages to which Telcordia is entitled. SAIC is entitled to receive the proceeds from any judgment or settlement with Telkom South Africa. A copy of the release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.
