ParkerVision Reports Third Quarter 2006 Results

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov 02, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq NMS: PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, announced a net loss for the third quarter ended September 30, 2006 of $3.8 million, or $.16 per share compared to a net loss of $3.9 million or $.19 per share during the third quarter of 2005.

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2006, ParkerVision reported a net loss of $12.5 million, or $0.54 per share, compared to a net loss of $19.6 million, or $0.97 per share for the same period in 2005.

The company has reported no revenue for the first three quarters of 2006, having exited the retail business in June 2005 to concentrate on introducing its wireless technology into the OEM marketplace. Revenue from retail product sales for the comparable 2005 period was $0.7 million.

The company's operating expenses for the first nine months of 2006 were $13.2 million, representing a $4.5 million, or 25% decrease from the same period in 2005. This decrease is primarily due to savings resulting from exiting the retail business activities and narrowing the company's focus to OEM sales activities. The decrease was somewhat offset by a $1.3 million increase in stock-based compensation due to the adoption on January 1, 2006 of Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 123(R), "Share-Based Payment," which requires the recognition of compensation expense based on the estimated fair value of stock options granted to employees.

The company's use of cash in operating and investing activities was $9.4 million for the first three quarters of 2006 compared to $13.4 million for the same period in 2005 and the company ended the quarter with $17.3 million in cash and cash equivalents.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Parker commented, "We are extremely pleased with the progress of our OEM discussions in recent months and remain confident that our efforts will result in consummation of our first relationships in the near term. The feedback we are receiving from our potential business partners indicates that our d2p technology enables performance goals that the mobile handset industry is actively striving to achieve."
