ParkerVision Reports First Quarter 2014 Results

Management to Host Conference Call and Webcast Today at 4:30 p.m. ET

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter 2014 Business Highlights and Recent Developments

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The first quarter was a productive one for ParkerVision on many fronts. 3LP Advisors was retained to expand and manage our worldwide licensing operations, and our sales and marketing efforts were escalated with regard to our component products where we are experiencing growing interest from the industrial segment.

"We continued to press our infringement claims against Qualcomm and were pleased with the district court's decision to uphold the jury's damages award of $172.7 million. We look forward to receiving the final rulings in this case in the coming months. As our recently filed complaint indicates, we believe that the infringement of our patents extends well beyond our receiver down-conversion technology that was the subject of our initial suit against Qualcomm. These additional claims, related to RF transmission and baseband technologies, reflect our sustained investments in wireless innovations that began in the late 1990's and continue to this day. We are committed to take the necessary steps to defend our intellectual property rights and the considerable value of the innovations we have pioneered and the resulting intellectual property portfolio," concluded Mr. Parker
