JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, today announced results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.

Second Quarter 2016 Summary and Recent Developments

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "With the recent patent license to Samsung, we achieved an important milestone of initiating ParkerVision's international licensing program in 2016. Based on our discussions, we believe other companies in the industry are seeing the value in securing authorized use of our patented innovations, which could result in additional intellectual property licenses in the near-term. Our licensing program complements other opportunities to work with customers in bringing products to market that incorporate ParkerVision innovations. While we encourage authorized users of our technologies to create products incorporating our innovations, we are also exploring the opportunity to provide expertise and technical services to assist companies in developing new product advancements enabled by our technologies."

Parker continued, "We continue to carefully manage our cash, using only $3 million in cash for operations during the first half of this year excluding the cash used for patent enforcement actions that are funded by our restricted capital. Much of this cash use reflects the continued investment in product development, and we plan to introduce later this year new Wi-Fi products, including products for IoT, that will improve the Wi-Fi user experience in homes and small buildings."
