SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES

CASE NO. BC717323

A class action lawsuit is pending against Fastenal Company (“Fastenal”).  The lawsuit alleges that Fastenal willfully violated a federal law (known as the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act or FACTA, 15 U.S.C. §1681c(g)) by printing on customer receipts the customer’s credit card or debit card expiration date and more than the last five digits of the customer’s credit card or debit card number.  Fastenal disputes the class action allegations and denies that it willfully violated FACTA.  The Court has not yet decided in favor of either the Class or Fastenal.  Instead, both sides have agreed upon a proposed Settlement of the class action lawsuit to avoid the uncertainty and cost of a trial, and to provide benefits to Class members.  Fastenal does not admit any violation of FACTA by agreeing to the proposed Settlement.
