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

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 14, 2018 -- ParkerVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRKR), a developer and marketer of technologies and products for wireless applications, today announced results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 Summary and Recent Developments

  • ParkerVision has been unable to regain compliance with Nasdaq continued listing standards and may be subject to delisting.
    • The Company has applied for listing on the OTCQB market under the ticker PRKR and expects the OTC listing to be approved prior to any suspension of trading on Nasdaq.
  • Products
    • Milo Single-Pack, which can be installed as a stand-alone system for smaller homes and apartments or as an add-on to an existing Milo system, began shipping in May 2018.
    • National television direct-to-consumer campaign for the Companys Milo Wifi product line launched August 6, 2018.
  • Licensing/Patent Enforcement

    • Additional infringement briefs filed by the Company at the request of the Munich court in the patent infringement case against Apple for its products using Intel chipsets; near-term decision expected which could result in an enforceable injunction against Apple products.
    • Claim construction hearing scheduled for August 31, 2018 in Jacksonville, Florida in patent infringement case against Qualcomm and Apple.
    • Validity decision expected in October 2017 following hearing in Munich, Germany; decision could result in enforceable injunctions against LG and Apple products using Qualcomm chipsets.
    • Hearing held at the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit for final determination on challenged claims of the Companys 940 Patent; following the courts decision, the Company anticipates resuming the patent infringement case against Qualcomm in middle district of Florida.

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, While we remain enthusiastic about a number of near-term milestones that can positively and significantly impact the outlook for ParkerVision, the on-going expense and lengthy timeframes to enforce and defend our broadly infringed patents has created some challenges, including limitations on our ability to maintain compliance with Nasdaqs continued listing requirements. We remain committed to enforce our patent rights as we believe the number of infringing units covered by our current enforcement actions are in the billions of units.

Parker continued, On the product front, we released a direct-response TV campaign for our Milo Wifi product a week ago. While it will take several weeks to assess the impact of that campaign, we are optimistic that it will be a catalyst to generate near term revenue growth. We are fortunate to have business and financial partners who share our aspirations for the future of ParkerVision and continue to support our business efforts.

Second Quarter and First Half Financial Results

  • GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $4.5 million, or $0.18 per common share, compared to a $3.7 million GAAP net loss, or $0.21 per common share, for the second quarter of 2017.
  • Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2018, which excluded the effects of share-based compensation expense and changes in fair value of the contingent repayment obligation, was $3.6 million, or $0.14 per common share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $3.2 million, or $0.18 per common share, for the second quarter of 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures that Supplement GAAP Measures

We use both generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and non-GAAP financial measures for assessing our operating performance. The non-GAAP measures we use include Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss per Share. These non-GAAP measures exclude the effect on net loss and net loss per share of (i) changes in fair value of our contingent payment obligation and (ii) share-based compensation expense. We consider these non-GAAP measures to provide relevant supplemental information to assist investors in better understanding our operating results. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, follow:
