PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Angeion Group today announces a settlement has been reached with Google in an antitrust class action lawsuit about the Google Play store.

- Sold an application or in-app product (including subscriptions) for a non-zero price between August 17, 2016 and December 31, 2021;
- Paid Google a service fee greater than 15% on at least one such transaction between August 17, 2016 and December 31, 2021; and
- Earned proceeds between U.S. $0 and U.S. $2,000,000.00 through Google Play in every calendar year between and inclusive of 2016 and 2021. For this purpose, the 2016 calendar year shall consist of August 17, 2016 through December 31, 2016.
