ParkerVision Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End 2006 Results

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Mar 08, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq NMS: PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, announced a net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2006 of $3.4 million, or $.14 per share compared to a net loss of $3.5 million or $.17 per share during the fourth quarter of 2005.

For the year ended December 31, 2006, ParkerVision reported a net loss of $15.8 million, or $0.68 per share, compared to a net loss of $23.1 million, or $1.14 per share for the year ended December 31, 2005.

The company has reported no revenue for 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 year ended December 31, 2005 was $996,000.

The company's operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2006 were $16.9 million, representing a $4.5 million, or 21% decrease from operating expenses of $21.4 million 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 $1.4 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 activities was $11.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2006 compared to $15.7 million for the same period in 2005. The Company ended the year with $13.2 million in cash and cash equivalents.

Subsequent to the end of the year, the Company completed a private placement of 992,441 shares of its common stock at a price of $8.50 per share for proceeds of approximately $8.4 million. In addition, the Company's first patent specifically related to its d2p(TM) transmit technology was recently granted by the U.S. patent office.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Parker commented, "In 2006, we cultivated business relationships with our target customers while continuing to develop and deepen both our technology and the intellectual property portfolio behind it. As we approach our initial licensing wins, and continue our discussions with numerous OEMs, securing the protection of our intellectual property is an important element of our business strategy. The receipt of our first patent specifically related to our d2p technology is timely and is a welcome addition to our portfolio, along with the 24 other patents related to our RF technology that were granted in 2006."
