ParkerVision Reports Profitable First Half of 2023

JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / August 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 six months ended June 30, 2023.

First Half 2023 Summary and Recent Developments

  • The Company recognized $25 million in revenue from patent license and settlement agreements and, after recognizing contingent legal fees and expenses, reported net income of $14.5 million in the first half of 2023.
  • The Company recently filed patent infringement cases in the Western District of Texas against Texas Instruments and NXP Semiconductors and additional cases against Taiwanese chip companies MediaTek and Realtek.
  • During the second quarter of 2023, the Company received $5 million in new funding under its contingent payment agreement.
  • The Company continues to await its hearing date in the appeal of its patent infringement case against Qualcomm in the Middle District of Florida.

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "ParkerVision currently has a dozen open cases in U.S. Federal Courts against eight companies to enforce our patent rights for the unauthorized use of our wireless technologies. We strongly believe the innovations covered by ParkerVision's patents have enabled more competitive and compelling wireless products, and we encourage those who have benefited from incorporating our technology into their products to obtain authorization to use our protected intellectual property through a license. As we learn of additional infringement, we expect to continue to expand the enforcement of our patent rights."

Mr. Parker continued, "ParkerVision has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in R&D and marketing in its patented RF receiver and transmitter technologies to enable ultra-small semiconductor chips that deliver high-performance RF wireless communications for mobile telephone standards such as 3G, 4G, and 5G, WiFi® communications, Bluetooth®, satellite communications and other wireless applications."

Financial Results

  • ParkerVision reported net income for the second quarter of 2023 of $1.4 million, or $0.02 per common share, compared to a net loss of ($4.4) million, or ($0.06) per common share for the second quarter of 2022. The increase in net income is largely a result of a decrease in the estimated fair value of contingent payment obligations.
  • ParkerVision reported net income for the first half of 2023 of $14.5 million, or $0.17 per common share, compared to a net loss of ($4.1) million, or $ (0.05) per common share for the second half 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 half 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 $4.2 million in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2023.
