Patriot Scientific Corporation Releases First Fiscal Quarter Report
CARLSBAD, Calif., October 12, 2010--Patriot Scientific Corporation (OTCBB: PTSC - News) today reported the filing of its report on Form 10-Q for its first fiscal 2011 quarter ended August 31, 2010.
For the three month period ended August 31, 2010, the Company's revenues were $0.1 million, with net losses totaling $2.0 million. The Company's cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, less debt, at August 31, 2010 total $11.4 million.
The Company's net loss of $2.0 million during the current quarter includes losses of $1.2 million from its equity investment in Phoenix Digital Solutions, the joint venture owned by the Company and the privately-held TPL Group.
"Despite our litigation with TPL, we have been engaged in ongoing discussions in an attempt to achieve a resolution to our differences," stated Cliff Flowers, Patriot's interim CEO. "Our objective has been to secure an agreement that paves the way for the continuation of licensing revenues, while ensuring that Patriot and its shareholders are fairly compensated for their ownership interests in the Moore Microprocessor Patent Portfolio (TM). We have been pursuing the dual path of negotiating and litigating, aggressively preserving our full range of options in furtherance of our objectives, and will provide further information as definitive events take place."
"In regards to our wholly owned data sharing subsidiary Patriot Data Solutions Group ("PDSG"), as I have previously stated we remain cautiously optimistic about the opportunities to increase its business value. The process of engaging channel partners continues with the objective that through these partners we will have access to multiple opportunities where PDSG and the CDX product line may participate."
"Following the end of our fiscal quarter we concluded our litigation against Deutsche Bank by settling our complaints in regards to the Auction Rate Securities previously procured through them. Although the terms of the settlement are confidential, we believe that the liquidity provided by the settlement and the cessation of associated legal costs is a positive development for the Company."
Details of the Company's upcoming shareholder meeting which have yet to be finalized will be made available in conjunction with the circularization of the associated proxy materials.
