Decision Reached in German case against LG

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

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 14, 2016 -- ParkerVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, today announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Third Quarter 2016 Summary and Recent Developments

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are extremely pleased this quarter to show the initial results from our international licensing and enforcement program. We believe this is the beginning of a successful program that will unlock significant value from our intellectual property portfolio. The addition of the international enforcement prong to our program is proving to be a necessary and worthwhile endeavor, and we are pleased with the speed and efficiency of the German court system. Shortly after our hearing in Germany, the court found, as expected, that LG infringes our patent. Upon successful resolution of the related nullity action, we anticipate the court will also provide the injunctive relief that we've requested."

Mr. Parker continued, "We have a dedicated team that continues to develop new intellectual property and products while maintaining a tight control on operating costs. Our investment in developing an expertise in the wireless space enables us to soon introduce products that we believe will be attractive to a wide consumer audience in both price and features, and we look forward to unveiling these products in the near-term."

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 nine months ended September 30, 2016 follows:
