Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Network-1 Security Solutions, Inc. (OTC BB: NSSI) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.  Network-1 had revenue of $1,907,000 and $5,971,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, as compared with revenue of $1,966,000 and $ 6,391,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.

Network-1 reported net income of $782,000 or $0.03 per share (basic) and $0.03 (diluted) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013 as compared $737,000 or $0.03 per share (basic) and $0.02 (diluted) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Network-1 reported net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 of $2,174,000 or $0.09 per share (basic) and $0.08 per share (diluted), compared with a net income $2,660,000 or $0.10 per share (basic) and $0.09 per share (diluted) for the six months ended June 30, 2012. 

At June 30, 2013, the Company had net operating loss carry forwards (NOLs) totaling approximately $23,954,000 expiring through 2029, with a future tax benefit of approximately $8,144,000.  At June 30, 2013 the remaining deferred tax asset was $5,878,000.

During the six months ended June 30, 2013, Network-1 acquired thirteen (13) patents as well as six (6) pending patent applications.  Network-1 continues to review potential patent acquisitions and strategic relationships with third parties to monetize their patents.

"It was another strong quarter for Network-1," commented Corey M. Horowitz, Chairman and CEO of Network-1.  "Importantly, during this quarter we acquired a patent portfolio from Mirror Worlds, LLC which has significant licensing potential and at the same time continued to develop our content recognition patent portfolio acquired during the first quarter.  Combined with our ongoing Remote Power Patent licensing initiatives, we are strongly positioned for continued growth in our overall technology licensing activities," he added.

During the quarter, Network -1 initiated patent litigation against several vendors of document system software and computer systems in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division, for infringement of U.S. Patent No. 6,006,227 (the ''227 Patent").

Named as defendants in the lawsuit are Apple, Inc., Microsoft, Inc., Hewlett-Packard Company, Lenovo Group Ltd., Lenovo, Inc., Dell, Inc., Best Buy Co., Inc., Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Samsung Telecommunications America L.L.C.  Network-1 seeks, among others things, monetary damages based upon reasonable royalties. 

The lawsuit alleges that that the Defendants have infringed and continue to infringe the claims of the '227 Patent by selling and offering to sell Mac OS and Windows operating systems as well as personal computers and tablets that include versions of those operating systems.

The '227 Patent was among nine (9) patents and five (5) pending patent applications acquired by Network-1, through its newly formed subsidiary, Mirror Worlds Technologies, LLC, from Mirror Worlds, LLC (the "MW Patent Portfolio") during the quarter.  The '227 Patent entitled "Document Stream Operating System" relates to methods that enable unified search, indexing, displaying and archiving of documents in a computer system.  The inventions described in the '227 Patent resulted from the work done by Yale University computer scientist, Professor David Gelernter, and his then graduate student, Dr. Eric Freeman, in the mid-1990s.   Both Professor Gelernter and Dr. Freeman entered into consulting agreements with us as part of our acquisition of the MW Patent Portfolio.

Professor Gelernter and Dr. Freeman are currently associated with Lifestreams Technologies Corporation ("Lifestreams"), a company that develops next generation applications and methodologies aimed at organizing and displaying digital data.  Lifestreams is a licensee of the MW Patent Portfolio.  In connection with the acquisition of the MW Patent Portfolio, we also acquired an equity interest in Lifestreams.  In addition, in July 2013 we made an additional equity investment in Lifestreams and, as part of an amended license agreement with Lifestreams related to the MW Patent Portfolio, we received a warrant to purchase 7.5% of the outstanding common stock of Lifestreams on a fully diluted basis.
