“A Rapid Analysis of Intel’s Connected Devices Patent Portfolio.” Richardson. IAM Media (March 2020)

By | Publication | No Comments

Late last year, Intel resurfaced the sale of a connected devices patent portfolio that was sidelined during the $1 billion sale of the majority of their smartphone modem assets to Apple (which included a pile of cellular wireless related patents). Intel has opened the sale to operating companies, defensive aggregators and even NPEs (non-binding indications of interest are due from bidders at the end of this month). We were asked to review the remaining portfolio and determine how it fits with the buying needs of participants in the secondary patent market.

“Like what Zillow did for the real estate market” – Data on $12B in deals covering 120,000 patents for sale across nearly 5,000 deals

LOS ALTOS, Calif.–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–Today, Richardson Oliver Insights launches a suite of data and analytics solutions providing patent buyers, sellers, and executives access to patent market data covering over 120,000 patent assets and nearly 5,000 deals. The data spans hundreds of technologies and market sectors including smartphones, wireless communications, cloud computing, social networking, OLED displays, and semiconductors.

“Patent strategists need more and better information on what patents are available, at what price, and comparables. Richardson Oliver Insights represents the next critical step in providing patent market information directly to patent holders and patent buyers, like Zillow did for the real estate market,” said Suzanne Harrison, author of “Edison in the Boardroom.”

“Patent strategists view buying and selling patents as a tool for risk management, but they lack the necessary information to make decisions easily. Our mission is to enable patent transactions and accelerate the patent market by providing reliable, comprehensive, data-driven solutions to patent buyers, sellers and decision makers,” said Kent Richardson, CEO of Richardson Oliver Insights. “To grow the market from the current $250M annually to billions requires greater access to information and more transparency. We provide both.”

Working with the community, Richardson Oliver Insights sources and organizes available patent deals from hundreds of patent sellers and brokers worldwide. For buyers, Richardson Oliver Insights’ proprietary database includes patents available for purchase today, pricing, evidence of use, and technology sector comparables information. For sellers, Richardson Oliver Insights provides information on past buyers, market pricing, advice on best practices, and which brokers might fit the sellers’ needs. Patent strategists use patent market analytics to evaluate broader industry trends, evaluate risk, and identify opportunities.
