MATTEL PREVAILS IN PATENT INFRINGEMENT APPEAL

 MATTEL PREVAILS IN PATENT INFRINGEMENT APPEAL
 LOS ANGELES, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- John W. Amerman, chairman


and chief executive officer of Mattel, Inc. (NYSE: MAT) today said that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., has issued a unanimous opinion in Mattel's favor, overturning a patent infringement judgment related to track for the company's Hot Wheels line of miniature vehicles.
 "We've always been confident of our position in this case, and the court opinion couldn't have been more clear. Our position has been vindicated," Amerman said.
 The 15-year-old case involved a number of complicated and technical legal issues, and the patent in question expired in 1986. The February 1990 judgment plus postjudgment interest would have exceeded $80 million.
 Mattel, Inc. is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of children's toys. With headquarters in El Segundo, Calif., Mattel has offices and facilities in more than 20 foreign countries, and markets its products in more than 100 nations around the world.
