ParkerVision Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., November 16, 2020 – ParkerVision, Inc. (OTCQB: PRKR) (“ParkerVision”), a developer and marketer of technologies and products for wireless applications, today announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.
 
Recent Developments
 
 
ParkerVision seeking $1.3 billion in damages in a jury trial scheduled to begin May 3, 2021 against Qualcomm in the middle district of Florida (Orlando division)
 
o
The damages sought in this case are based on the conclusion reached by ParkerVisions’s damages expert in a report provided to Qualcomm, the purpose of which is to establish the reasonable royalty that Qualcomm owes for its unauthorized use of ParkerVision’s technology, an amount that will ultimately be determined by the court.
 
o
The damages submitted in the expert report exclude amounts related to ParkerVision’s requests for interest and enhanced damages for willful infringement.
 
ParkerVision has a number of patent infringement cases underway in the western district of Texas
 
o
Two cases against Intel scheduled for Markman hearings in January and February 2021 with trials scheduled for February and March 2022
 
o
New cases filed against foreign corporations Buffalo, Hisense, TCL and Zyxel.
 
Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our long-awaited case against Qualcomm in Orlando is now less than six months from trial, and we are looking forward to presenting our case to a jury. During the pendency of this case, Qualcomm has attempted to prevent us from presenting our complete case to a Florida jury including challenging the validity of our patents at the PTAB and appellate courts, filing a motion that would have excluded our receiver patents from the case, and filing yet another motion to prevent us from asserting certain patent claims. The sum total of these litigation tactics has certainly resulted in delays to our day in court. However, having prevailed on these challenges, I have never felt better about the strength of our case. Our damages in this case reflect the reasonable royalty that Qualcomm owes us for its unauthorized use of our technology over many years. Ultimately, the decision on damages will be in the hands of the court, and I am confident that a jury will understand the full story here.”
 
Parker continued, “In the very near-term, we expect to have Markman, or claim construction, rulings in our Texas cases against Intel. While our cases against Qualcomm in Florida and Intel in Texas are primarily related to infringing products that are used in Smartphones, we also have four cases in Texas for the unauthorized use of our patents in WiFi products, such as smart televisions and routers.”
 
Third Quarter and Nine Month Financial Results
 
Net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $1.7 million, or $0.03 per common share, compared to a net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.07 per common share for the third quarter of 2019.
 
o
The decrease in net loss year-over-year is largely due to measures to reduce spending along with reduced litigation expenses as a result of a stay in the infringement case against Qualcomm and Apple in Jacksonville, Florida that was not covered under a full contingency fee-based arrangement.
 
 
 
 
Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $13.2 million, or $0.29 per common share, compared to $5.8 million, or $0.19 per common share in 2019.
 
o
Much of the increase in net loss for the comparable periods is attributable to noncash items including an increase in the fair value of secured and unsecured contingent payment obligations of $4.2 million and an increase of $2.2 million in expense recognized upon modification of existing equity-related agreements. In addition, litigation fees and expenses increased $1.3 million as a result of expense incurred early in 2020 related to the infringement action against Qualcomm and Apple that was later stayed due to Covid and ultimately stayed pending the outcome of the upcoming case against Qualcomm in Orlando, Florida.
 
We used cash for operations of approximately $4.2 million and repaid approximately $1.3 million in debt obligations for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Our operations and debt repayments were funded primarily with proceeds from debt and equity issuances, including the issuance of common stock with accompanying contingent payment rights to an allocated portion of net proceeds that we receive from future patent-related actions.
