For the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $5.0 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.8 million, also $0.06 per share, for the same period in 2011.

The increase in net loss for the three and nine month periods is primarily the result of litigation-related expenses and increases in non-cash share-based compensation.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Parker, commented, "In addition to the continuation of our chip development efforts and our support of the Qualcomm patent infringement litigation this past quarter, we have also focused a substantial amount of our attention on the exploration of strategies for capitalizing on our innovations. We believe 3LP Advisors, working in concert with some of the other professionals on our team, will provide added leverage and expertise to these efforts."
