ParkerVision Reports $10.6 Million in Net Income for First Nine Months of 2023

JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / November 14, 2023 / ParkerVision, Inc. (OTCQB:PRKR) ("ParkerVision" or the "Company"), a developer and marketer of technologies and products for wireless applications, today announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023.

2023 Summary and Recent Developments

  • On November 6, 2023, oral arguments were heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) in ParkerVision v. Qualcomm. The parties are awaiting the CAFC's decisions.
    • The Company appealed three separate rulings made in March 2022 by the district court in the Middle District of Florida (Orlando division) in the Company's patent infringement case against Qualcomm.
  • The Company recognized $25 million in revenue from patent license and settlement agreements in 2023 and, after recognizing contingent legal fees and expenses, reported net income of $10.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023.
  • The Company successfully negotiated the extension of maturity dates on $1.2 million of convertible notes that were scheduled to mature from September 2023 through March 2024. These notes now mature in February/March 2026.

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "ParkerVision was eager to present its arguments to the CAFC last week, and we believe key points supporting reversal that were contained in our appellate briefs to the CAFC were discussed in the hearing. We are hopeful that the CAFC will reverse the district court's prior rulings and remand our case back to Florida district court. Meanwhile, the four active patent infringement cases in the Western District of Texas against Realtek, MediaTek, NXP, and Texas Instruments continue to progress. Claim construction hearings are scheduled in January 2024 in the Realtek and MediaTek cases."

Financial Results

  • ParkerVision reported a net loss for the third quarter of 2023 of $3.9 million, or $0.05 per common share, compared to a net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per common share for the third quarter of 2022. The increase in net loss is largely the result of an increase in the estimated fair value of contingent payment obligations.
  • ParkerVision reported net income of $10.6 million for the first nine months of 2023, or $0.12 per common share, compared to a net loss of $4.5 million, or $0.06 per common share for the first nine months of 2022. The increase in net income is primarily the result of $25 million in revenue recognized on a patent license and settlement agreement reached in February 2023, offset by contingent legal fees and expenses incurred related to the agreement.
  • During the first nine months of 2023, the Company repaid $13.9 million of its secured contingent payment obligation with proceeds received from patent license and settlement agreements and received $5.0 million in new contingent borrowings.
  • The Company had $3.3 million in cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2023.
