Network-1 Reports Second Quarter Results

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 14, 2019 / Network-1 Technologies, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN:NTIP), a company specializing in the development, licensing, and protection of its intellectual property assets, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Network-1 had revenue of $599,000 and $1,205,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively, as compared to revenue of $471,000 and $19,934,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively. The increase in revenue of $128,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to increased revenue from Network-1’s royalty bearing licensees for its Remote Power Patent. The decrease in revenue of $18,729,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2018 from a fully-paid license related to Network-1’s patent litigation settlement with Juniper Networks, Inc. of $12,700,000 and $6,320,000 of revenue from the sale of its Avaya unsecured bankruptcy claim. Excluding revenue from the fully-paid license with Juniper and sale of the Avaya unsecured claim, revenue from Network-1’s royalty bearing licenses for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $914,000 as compared to $1,075,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Network-1 had an operating loss of $(516,000) for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared with an operating loss of $(1,004,000) for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decreased operating loss of $(448,000) for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to increased revenue and decreased legal fees and costs related to Network-1’s patent litigation.

Network-1 had an operating loss of $(1,049,000) for the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared with operating income of $9,879,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The decreased operating income of $10,928,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was due to operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2018 associated with revenue of $19,020,000 from Network-1’s fully-paid license with Juniper and from the sale of its Avaya unsecured claim, less related costs.

Network-1 realized a net loss of $(208,000) or $(0.01) per share (basic and diluted) for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared with a net loss of $(564,000) or $(0.02) per share (basic and diluted) for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease in net loss of $356,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to increased revenue and decreased legal fees and costs related to our patent litigation.

Network-1 realized a net loss of $(448,000) or $(0.02) per share basic and diluted for the six months ended June 30, 2019 compared with net income of $8,037,000 or $0.34 per share basic and $0.31 per share diluted for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease in net income of $8,485,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was primarily due to income for the six months ended June 30, 2018 associated with revenue of $19,020,000 from Network-1’s fully-paid license with Juniper and from the sale of its Avaya unsecured claim, less related costs.

At June 30, 2019, Network-1 had cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of $51,039,000 and working capital of $50,753,000. Network-1 believes based on its current cash position it will have sufficient cash to fund its operations for the foreseeable future.
