InterDigital Announces Preliminary and Unaudited Fourth Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Press Release: InterDigital, Inc. – 4 minutes 48 seconds ago

IDCC 44.45 -1.52

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC - News) today announced preliminary and unaudited results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011.
Revenue in fourth quarter 2011 is expected to be $74.2 million. Expected revenue consists of current royalties of $71.8 million, no past sales and $2.4 million from technology solutions.
Fourth quarter 2011 operating expenses are expected to be $41.5 million, including $10.5 million of intellectual property enforcement and non-patent litigation costs and a $4.6 million adjustment to reduce long-term compensation accrued prior to the period. This adjustment relates to a fourth quarter reduction in the accrual rates for two of our performance cycles from 100 percent to 50 percent resulting from the impact of our strategic alternatives review process on the timing of license agreements.
The Company expects to report other expense in fourth quarter 2011 of $2.7 million and a $9.1 million tax provision representing a 30 percent effective rate. The expected tax provision includes a benefit of $1.5 million related to after tax interest income associated with a tax refund.

This was a screaming short at 78 as they tried to piggyback on the Nortel auction. Now it's interesting again, after hitting a 52-week low, down ~3%.

The stock has become interesting to me as well. It seems that it is discounting litigation losses almost across the board. I find it hard to believe that the stock will be sitting at 27 when the USITC trial gets a verdict next February.

Sympathy to all of the longs though. Management has really done a spectacularly poor job of monetizing the company's IP.

InterDigital, Inc. (IDCC) and Intel Corporation (INTC) today announced that certain of InterDigital’s subsidiaries have signed a definitive agreement to sell to Intel roughly 1,700 patents and patent applications for $375 million in cash.
The agreement involves patents primarily related to 3G, LTE and 802.11 technologies. InterDigital is an active developer of advanced wireless technologies including WCDMA (Wideband CDMA), HSDPA (High Speed Download Packet Access) and HSUPA (High Speed Upload Packet Access) 3G technologies as well as LTE (Long Term Evolution) and LTE-Advanced 4G technologies.
“The acquisition of this portfolio of InterDigital’s technologies by a global technology leader like Intel affirms the efforts of our research and development team which actively shares our innovations with the worldwide standards bodies, defining technologies that are central to the world's major wireless systems and devices,” said Scott McQuilkin, Senior Executive Vice President, Strategy and Finance at InterDigital. “This transaction, which involves a small portion of our overall patent portfolio, marks an important milestone of InterDigital’s stated strategy of expanding the monetization of its large and growing intellectual property portfolio. By executing on our business plan, which has been broadened to include patent sales, licensing partnerships and other possibilities, we see tremendous potential to expand revenue and build shareholder value.”
“These patents will support Intel’s strategic investments in the mobile segment,” said Doug Melamed, Intel Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “The addition of these patents expands our already large, strong and diverse portfolio of intellectual property.”
The companies expect the transaction to be completed in third quarter 2012, subject to customary closing conditions and any required regulatory approvals.

InterDigital, Mindspeed and Radisys Collaborate to Deliver Integrated Small Cell with Wi-Fi Solution Integrated System Can Cut Carrier TCO in Half Compared to Traditional Architecture

InterDigital ( IDCC), Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. ( MSPD), and Radisys® ( RSYS) announced today that they will be demonstrating an integrated Wi-Fi and LTE small cell solution at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month. The solution combines InterDigital’s Converged Gateway, a licensed and unlicensed bandwidth management software with carrier-proven Radisys TOTALeNodeB™ complete small cell software, all running on Mindspeed®’s Transcede® dual-mode processor. The Transcede system-on-chip (SoC) is a dual-mode device with designated headroom available for value-added software, which fully supports both 3G/HSPA, 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi applications from Radisys. This enables OEMs to efficiently develop small cell solutions that combine HSPA, LTE and Wi-Fi in one access point.

Network operators are increasingly embracing cellular and Wi-Fi as complementary technologies in delivering the ever-growing volume of data through offloading cellular users onto Wi-Fi. As such, many operators are deploying carrier Wi-Fi in significant volume today. But critically, for urban deployments with metrocells, the total cost of ownership (TCO) is driven by the number of nodes, as each requires power, backhaul, installation and site acquisition. Having separate carrier Wi-Fi installations and small cell installations to serve the same area doubles TCO compared to an integrated unit that shares power, backhaul and installation.

InterDigital’s Converged Gateway software delivers a novel offloading and traffic management solution by intelligently managing application data flows across multiple physical transports or networks, and simultaneously enhances the overall user experience. This enables synergies between cellular and Wi-Fi by using advanced operator-controlled policies to combine, split or hand over data streams based on contextual parameters, such as channel conditions, content, user preferences, subscription plans, etc. This is fully compatible with both 3GPP and 802.11 standards, and embodies the Small Cell Forum ISW (Integrated Small Cell Wi-Fi) reference architecture.

“InterDigital’s innovation and technology leadership in the wireless industry is contributing bandwidth management solutions for the HetNet, and helping solve the bandwidth crunch for carriers while ensuring QoE for users,” said Allen A. Proithis, Executive Vice President of InterDigital Solutions. “We are pleased to partner with Radisys, an industry leader in the small cell protocol stack and platform software, and Mindspeed, a leader in SoC, in delivering a reliable industry solution that can address TCO issues for carriers in such a compelling way.”

“Small cells represent one of the most exciting segments in wireless today, and we are proud of our market-leading position,” said Dr. Naser Adas, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of the wireless infrastructure business unit at Mindspeed. “We are the only small cell SoC company commercially shipping both 3G and LTE. Through this initiative with InterDigital and Radisys, our dual-mode SoC enables a complete, triple mode ISW access point, delivering the benefits of Small Cells and Wi-Fi in one system.”

“Radisys is pleased to be part of the next leap of HetNet innovation,” said Todd Mersch, senior director product line management, Software and Solutions, Radisys. “Efficient and cost effective deployment of multi-mode technologies is key for operators for both capex and opex expenses. Radisys’ field deployed 3G and LTE multi-mode small cell software solution turns the HetNet concept into the deployment reality for operators. In 2013, as multi-mode deployments proliferate, operators will need policy driven control on their access assets and we are pleased to be at the forefront of solving the HetNet deployment challenge.”

The ISW software from InterDigital controls both Wi-Fi chipset and the Mindspeed Transcede platform, integrating 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with LTE and HSPA. It will work with all of Mindspeed’s small cell SoC products, scaling from cost-effective residential systems to high-performance “metro cells” for public access and dense urban deployment.

Recently, the Small Cell Forum and Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) announced that they will work together to intelligently integrate small cells and Wi-Fi to improve quality of service, lower costs and simplify deployment. The Forum is developing a reference architecture for ISW, building on the work in other standards bodies to help operators define and deploy such integrated products.

By 2017, nearly 21 exabytes of mobile data traffic will be offloaded each month to fixed networks by means of Wi-Fi devices and femtocells according to predictions in the Cisco Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update, 2012–2017.
