David Pohl, chairman and CEO of Patriot, stated, 'We are taking this action to significantly increase our efforts to communicate with existing and potential new shareholders. Patriot Scientific is on an exciting and dramatic corporate path, with a 'David and Goliath' story.'
Pohl noted that in 2005 Patriot shifted its focus from making and marketing its microprocessor to licensing its patent portfolio. More than 400 manufacturing companies around the globe have been put on notice that they appear to be infringing on proprietary intellectual property in Patriot's jointly owned patent portfolio. Pohl said 15 major global manufacturers signed license agreements in the past 14 months, including HP, Casio, Fujitsu, Sony, Nikon, Seiko Epson, Pentax, Olympus, Kenwood, Agilent, Lexmark, Schneider Electric, NEC Corporation and Funai Electric. Intel and AMD are also licensees. Negotiations with other well-known names and brands are ongoing.
The patents in Patriot's jointly owned portfolio, marketed as the Moore Microprocessor Patent(TM) (MMP) Portfolio, encompass fundamental design techniques that enable higher performance and lower cost digital electronic systems ranging from cell phones and portable music players to communications infrastructure and medical equipment as well as automobiles, which today utilize dozens of microprocessors.
'Patriot's presence on irrefutable Tier-1 websites will amplify the outreach of our news and corporate developments going forward,' Pohl said. 'This agreement will expand the breadth and reach of the Patriot story and should vastly increase Patriot's visibility. Our goal is to increase the public's knowledge and awareness of our company and the investment opportunity afforded by our stock.'
