Network-1 Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Network-1 Security Solutions, Inc. (OTC BB: NSSI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  Network-1 had revenue of $1,814,000 and $5,390,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, as compared with revenue of $174,000 and $292,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively.

Network-1 reported net income of $6,666,000 or $0.26 per share (basic) and $0.21 per share (diluted) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011 as compared to a net loss of ($1,157,000) or $(.05) per share (basic and diluted) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010.  

Network-1 reported net income for the six months ended June 30, 2011 of $8,332,000 or $.0.32 per share (basic) and $0.27 per share (diluted), compared with a net loss of $(1,815,000) or $(0.08) per share (basic and diluted) for the six months ended June 30, 2010.  

Included in the quarter and the six month period ended June 30, 2011 were (i) an income tax benefit of $7,000,000 and (ii)  $1,000,000 of additional patent cost expense payable to a third party because Network-1 achieved $25 million in net royalties from licensing its Remote Power Patent.  

Exclusive of the items consisting of the patent cost expense of $1,000,000 and the $7,000,000 one-time tax benefit (more fully described below), net income for the three month period end June 30, 2011 was $666,000 or $.03  per share (basic) and $.02 per share (diluted) and for the six months ended June 30, 2011, net income was $2,332,000 or $.09 per share (basic) and $.07 (diluted).

At June 30, 2011, the Company had net operating loss carry forwards (NOLs) totaling approximately $27,000,000 expiring between 2020 and 2030, with a future tax benefit of approximately $9,000,000.  During the three month period ended June 30, 2011, based on recent results and projected future operating results, management determined that a portion of the NOL was more likely than not to be utilized.  Accordingly, included in the quarter and six-month periods ended June 30, 2011 was the recognition of a $7,000,000 deferred tax benefit which resulted in a one-time, non-cash income tax benefit of $7,000,000 as well as an  increase to shareholder's equity of $7,000,000.  

Consistent with its activities over the past several years, Network-1 plans on continuing its licensing activities relating to the Remote Power Patent which may include additional enforcement activities.  In addition, the Company may acquire intellectual property assets  to develop, commercialize, license or otherwise monetize such intellectual property.  In this regard, the Company continually reviews opportunities to acquire, develop or license additional intellectual property for the purpose of pursuing licensing opportunities related to its existing intellectual property portfolio or otherwise.  The Company may also enter into strategic relationships with third parties to develop, commercialize, license or otherwise monetize their intellectual property.  The form of such relationships may vary depending upon the opportunity and may include, among other things, a strategic investment in such third party or the formation of a joint venture for the purpose of monetizing such third party's intellectual property assets.
