SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted investigation No.

section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337 
(``section 337''), on September 2, 2014, based on a complaint filed by 
Valeo North America, Inc. of Troy, MI, and Delmex de Juarez S. de R.L. 
de C.V. of Mexico (collectively, ``Valeo''). The complaint alleges a 
violation of section 337 by reason of infringement of certain claims of 
U.S. Patent Nos. 7,891,044 (``the `044 patent''); 7,937,798 (``the `798 
patent''); and 8,220,106 by Federal-Mogul Corp. of Southfield, 
Michigan, Federal-Mogul Vehicle Component Solutions, Inc. of 
Southfield, Michigan, and Federal-Mogul S.A. of Aubange, Belgium 
(collectively, ``Federal-Mogul''). 79 FR 52041-42 (Sep. 2, 2014).
    On October 15, 2014, Valeo filed another complaint, against Trico 
Products Corporation of Rochester Hills, Michigan; Trico Products of 
Brownsville, Texas; and Trico Componentes SA de CV of Tamaulipas, 
Mexico (collectively, ``Trico,'' Respondent, or Respondents), asserting 
a violation of section 337(a)(1)(B) by reason of infringement of one or 
more claims of the '044 patent and the '798 patent. On November 21, 
2014, the Commission instituted Investigation No. 337-TA-937, Certain 
Windshield Wipers and Components Thereof, based on this complaint filed 
by Valeo against Trico. 79 FR 69525-26 (Nov. 21, 2014). Subsequently, 
the two investigations were consolidated. Order No. 8, Inv. No. 337-TA-
928 (Dec. 9, 2014). The Office of Unfair Import Investigations 
(``OUII'') is not participating in this investigation.
    On May 19, 2015, Valeo and Federal-Mogul reached a settlement 
agreement and filed a joint motion to terminate the Federal-Mogul 
respondents from the consolidated investigation, which was granted on 
June 5, 2015. See ALJ Order No. 24, Inv. No. 337-TA-928 (June 5, 2015) 
(not reviewed June 29, 2015).
    On May 27, 2016, Valeo and Trico filed a joint motion to terminate 
the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. On June 10, 
2016, the Commission extended the target date for completion of this 
investigation to June 30, 2016.
    Having examined the joint motion, the settlement agreement, and the 
record of this investigation, the Commission has determined to grant 
the joint motion to terminate the investigation and finds the motion in 
compliance with Commission rule 210.21(b). The Commission finds, 
pursuant to Commission rule 210.50(b)(2), that this termination will 
not prejudice the public interest.
    The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in 
section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and 
in Part 210 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 
part 210).

    By order of the Commission.

    Issued: June 27, 2016.
Lisa R. Barton,
Secretary to the Commission.
