Verisign FORM 10-Q excerpt:"On January 18, 2017, the Company received a Civil Investigative Demand (“CID”) from the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) requesting certain material related to the Company becoming the registry operator for the . web  gTLD.  We are cooperating with the DOJ. At this time, the Company is unable to estimate a range of potential financial and non-financial outcomes in connection with this matter. Verisign is also involved in various investigations, claims and lawsuits arising in the normal conduct of its business, none of which, in its opinion, will have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.
