NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Network-1 Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: NTIP) today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. 

Network-1 had revenue of $5,166,000 and $9,657,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, as compared to revenue of $1,907,000 and $5,971,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively.  Included in revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 is $3,281,000 of additional royalties from Cisco Systems as a result of the Company's audit of the May 2011 license agreement with Cisco.  The additional royalties cover the years 2012 and 2013 and other periods subject to the license agreement.

Network-1 reported net income of $1,601,000 or $0.06 per share (basic) and (diluted) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 as compared to net income of $782,000 or $0.03 per share (basic) and (diluted) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Network-1 reported net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 of $2,997,000 or $0.12 per share (basic) and $0.11 per share (diluted), compared with net income of $2,174,000 or $0.09 per share (basic) and $0.08 per share (diluted) for the six months ended June 30, 2013. 

At June 30, 2014, the Company had net operating loss carry forwards (NOLs) totaling approximately $22,855,000 expiring through 2029, with a future tax benefit of approximately $7,771,000.  During the six month period ended June 30, 2014 as a result of income before taxes for the period of $4,665,000, the deferred tax asset was reduced by $1,566,000 to $4,093,000.

At June 30, 2014, the Company's principal sources of liquidity consisted of cash and cash equivalents of approximately $16.6 million and working capital of approximately $21 million.

"It was a great quarter for Network-1," commented Corey M. Horowitz, Chairman and CEO of Network-1.  "We successfully completed our royalty audit of Cisco which resulted in our receiving significant additional royalties under our license agreement and, importantly, the validity of the Remote Power Patent was confirmed by the United States Patent Office in the Inter Partes Review proceeding initiated by Avaya and joined by HP, Dell and Sony," he added.  "During the quarter, we also received an additional patent relating to the Cox patent portfolio and we began our monetization efforts of that portfolio thereby continuing to expand upon our goal of diversifying our IP monetization efforts across our several valuable portfolios."

On April 4, 2014, Network-1 initiated litigation against Google and YouTube in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York for infringement of several of its patents within Network-1's Cox patent portfolio which relates to the identification of media content on the Internet.  The lawsuit alleges that Google and YouTube have infringed and continue to infringe certain of Network-1's patents by making, using, selling and offering to sell unlicensed systems and related products and services, which include YouTube's Content ID system.
