ParkerVision Reports Second Quarter and Six Month Results

Company to Host Conference Today at 4:30 p.m. ET

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, today reported reduced losses for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to the same periods in 2010.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2011, the Company reported a net loss of $3.5 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.8 million, or $0.09 per share, for the same period in 2010. For the six month period ended June 30, 2011, the Company reported a net loss of $6.9 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a net loss of $7.7 million, or $0.19 per share, for the same period in 2010. The decrease in net loss is a direct result of reductions in operating expenses of 6% and 11% for the three and six month periods, respectively. This decrease in operating expenses is primarily the result of reduced share-based compensation and other noncash items.

ParkerVision raised $4.1 million in net proceeds from its March 2011 sale of equity securities and used approximately $5.2 million in cash during the first half of 2011. At the end of the second quarter of 2011, the Company had approximately $5.4 million in cash, cash equivalents and available for sale securities.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Parker, commented, "We are currently awaiting Qualcomm's response to our intellectual property infringement litigation complaint, which we anticipate will be received within the next few weeks. In the meantime, we are continuing to expand our legal team and further our body of evidence in this case.   In addition, ParkerVision continues to pursue initial orders for its CDMA-based chipsets with handset OEM's and ODMs who utilize the VIA Series 7 baseband processors.  We also continue to evaluate strategic opportunities for future product offerings."
