Shareholders have been dumped on for far, far too long. Skippen claims he's now going to look after shareholder interests, finally - well do it then, who's stopping him?

The cash is available now (+3.75 cents x 120M shares is quite affordable), so start paying it back to its owners. It's time for this company to walk the talk and cut the BS excuses for everything....

This company has a long history of finding creative ways of rewarding insiders and punishing shareholders.

Having changed strategies yet again, I haven't seen anything to suggest that they've changed their ways....

Apple's response makes it very clear that they will go to extreme lengths to spend their money on lawyers, not patent licenses....

Any new investor would do well to understand that this whole Quarterhill acquisition scheme was a face-saving exercise by Jim Skippen.

They kept touting how valuable the IP assets were without ever backing up the talk. In the end, the back broke on WiLAN earnings and business model.

Now in the name of stabilizing earnings, they go out and acquire two lame duck companies. Maybe the new manager can turn things around and actually run it like a business, but maybe (and given the company track record most likely) not.

I've been involved with the stock for almost 20 years and to me this looks like just more of the same - a company that is reliable in only one way - disappointing shareholders....

Cisco's hollow deal

Cisco have always been very smart about waiting until WiLAN is desperate before signing any licenses - they end up spending pennies on the dollar.

Bottom line: WiLAN had to give away a bunch of technology to Cisco, yet again, to get some PR and try to keep this sinking ship afloat.

Desperate is not a good position to negotiate from....

Cisco Settlement comes back to haunt QTRH

The settlement with Cisco created a "most favoured nation" settlement cap of $10M. WiLAN will never collect more than $10M from any large US based IP user that refuses to take a license voluntarily.

They gave away the store and the future of the company to get a 'pennies on the dollar' deal from Cisco - they saved their own jobs and sold shareholders out in the process....

The WiLAN IP licensing business model remains broken, and the QTRH face-saving exercise by Skippen is an abject failure....

Been holding for almost 20 years. Have watched plenty of investors buy the WiLAN story and then died while waiting for the realization/payoff.

That's what awaits anyone who buys into this story. Check the track record - it speaks for itself....

Qualcomm's (QCOM) recent "win" (chip supply deal with patent license included) doesn't matter at all to QTRH!!!

Insiders at WiLAN/QuarterHill always skim any profits from positive developments off the top...

Shareholders in QTRH ALWAYS GET THE SHAFT!!!!

If you don't believe me check the scorecard (long term stock price chart) ....
