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

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, today announced results for the three-months and full-year ended December 31, 2014.

Fourth Quarter and 2014 Business Highlights and Recent Developments

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "2014 marked a year where we had to adjust for unexpected circumstances. We believe these circumstances caused us to reassess the bigger picture, but in no way detracted from our goals of securing rightful compensation from those who have used our protected innovations without authorization. We are fortunate to have deeply experienced professionals in the areas of patent prosecution, enforcement, licensing, and funding who continually assess our prospects and remain committed partners working with us to achieve our goals. The value inherent in the continued and rapidly expanding use of our technologies across a wide range of applications and products will empower a broad-scale program that we believe will ultimately lead to successful business relationships built upon licensing and product development ventures."
