InterDigital Issues Financial Guidance for Fourth Quarter 2010

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Nov 12, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc.

(NASDAQ: IDCC) today announced financial guidance for fourth quarter 2010.

InterDigital(R) expects fourth quarter 2010 revenue to be in the range of approximately $92 million to $94 million. This range includes approximately $4.3 million in technology solutions revenue associated with a modem core customer whose agreement is expected to terminate as a result of the pending acquisition of that customer by a third party. The range does not include the potential impact of any additional new agreements that may be signed during fourth quarter 2010 or the potential impact of any royalties identified in audits regularly conducted by the company.

"Our expected fourth quarter 2010 revenue reflects continued strong performance in sales of smartphones and the expansion of our licensee base over the past year," commented Scott McQuilkin, InterDigital's Chief Financial Officer.
