Acacia Research Reports First Quarter 2007 Financial Results

Newport Beach, CA | Posted on April 26th, 2007

"Acacia Technologies revenues for the first quarter of 2007 were $25,185,000 compared to $4,717,000 in the year ago period. Trailing 12-month revenues were $55,293,000 compared to $22,428,000 at the end of the first quarter of 2006," commented Acacia Research Corporation Chairman and CEO, Paul Ryan.

"Acacia Technologies reported first quarter GAAP net income of $4,399,000 or $0.16 per share, including non-cash patent amortization and non-cash stock compensation charges totaling $2,079,000. Cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments were $53,193,000 at the end of the first quarter, an increase of $8,195,000, compared to $44,998,000 as of December 31, 2006."

"Acacia entered into 22 new licensing agreements in the first quarter covering 11 different licensing programs. We began generating revenues from 4 new licensing programs in the quarter and have now generated revenues from 24 different licensing programs. We also acquired control of 6 new patent portfolios in the quarter and now control 66 patent portfolios. Acacia's licensing success is increasing new opportunities for partnering with owners of patented technologies as we continue to build our leadership position in patent licensing," concluded Mr. Ryan.

"The CombiMatrix group recognized revenues of $1,137,000 for the first quarter of 2007. This represented a 32% increase over the fourth quarter of 2006 and a 9% decrease relative to the first quarter of 2006. Our GAAP division net loss for the quarter improved to $2,097,000 compared to a GAAP division net loss of $7,689,000 for the first quarter of 2006. Contributing to the improvement in net loss was significant cost cutting measures as well as certain non-cash items. As a result, we ended the first quarter of 2007 with $10,517,000 of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments on our balance sheet," commented Dr. Amit Kumar, CEO and President of CombiMatrix Corporation.

"As discussed previously, we have made significant organizational changes in our fixed and variable costs in order to finance the expansion of our business into the molecular diagnostics sector and to conserve our capital, and we expect these measures to improve our cash burn throughout 2007. We launched diagnostic array services late last year and early this year in the areas of congenital genetic disorders, oncology, and infectious diseases. We also have a rich pipeline of pending products to be launched during the second quarter of 2007 and beyond. We are making progress in establishing our presence in the molecular diagnostics markets, building our diagnostics sales and marketing infrastructure, and entering relationships with other laboratories to expand the reach of our diagnostic services," concluded Dr. Kumar.

Acacia Technologies Group Financial Results

(A Division of Acacia Research Corporation)

For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2007 and 2006

First quarter 2007 license fee revenues recognized by the Acacia Technologies group were $25,185,000 versus $4,717,000 in the comparable 2006 period. First quarter 2007 revenues included license fees from 22 new licensing agreements covering 11 of our technology licensing programs, including initial license fee revenues for our Spreadsheet Automation technology, Rule-Based Monitoring technology, Digital Color Correction for Video Graphics Systems technology and Portable Storage Devices with Links technology licensing programs. First quarter 2007 license fee revenues also included fees from the licensing of our DMTŪ technology, Audio/Video Enhancement and Synchronization technology, Audio Communications Fraud Detection technology , Credit Card Fraud Protection technology, Image Resolution Enhancement technology, Pop-Up Advertising technology, and Product Activation technology. To date, the Acacia Technologies group has generated revenues from 24 of its technology licensing programs.

Trailing twelve-month revenues for the Acacia Technologies group were $55.3 million as of March 31, 2007, as compared to $34.8 million at December 31, 2006 and $22.4 million as of March 31, 2006.

The Acacia Technologies group reported first quarter 2007 division net income of $4,399,000 versus a net loss of $2,409,000 in the comparable 2006 period. Included in first quarter 2007 divisional results are non-cash stock compensation charges and non-cash patent amortization charges totaling $2,079,000 versus $2,391,000 in the comparable 2006 period. First quarter 2007 non-cash stock compensation charges were $763,000 versus $1,048,000 in the comparable 2006 period. The reduction in non-cash stock compensation charges primarily reflects the reversal of non-cash stock compensation charges recorded in prior periods due to the pre-vesting forfeiture of certain share-based awards in connection with an employee separation during the period.

First quarter 2007 marketing, general and administrative expenses increased to $4,364,000 (including non-cash stock compensation charges of $763,000) from $3,537,000 (including non-cash stock compensation charges of $1,048,000) in the comparable 2006 period. The net increase was due primarily to the addition of licensing, business development and engineering personnel since the end of the comparable 2006 period, a one-time severance charge for an employee separation under the Executive Severance Plan, an increase in accounting and legal expenses related to the CombiMatrix Corporation split-off transaction and an increase in corporate, general and administrative costs related to the continued growth of Acacia Technologies group's ongoing operations. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in consulting expenses due to the expiration of the consulting agreement with the former CEO of Global Patent Holdings, LLC, and the reduction in non-cash stock compensation charges as described above.

Acacia Technologies group operating expenses for the first quarter of 2007 and 2006 included inventor royalties expenses of $5,486,000 and $1,283,000, respectively, and contingent legal fees expenses of $8,636,000 and $988,000, respectively. The increase in inventor royalties expense and contingent legal fees expense primarily reflects the increase in license fee revenues and the impact of the specific mix of patent portfolios generating the revenues for the first quarter of 2007, as compared to the first quarter in 2006. The majority of the Acacia Technologies group's patent portfolios are subject to patent and patent rights agreements with inventors containing provisions granting to the original patent owner the right to receive inventor royalties based on future net revenues, as defined in the respective agreements, and may also be subject to contingent legal fee arrangements with external law firms engaged on a contingent fee basis. The economic terms of the inventor and contingent arrangements, if any, vary across the Acacia Technologies group's patent portfolios. As such, inventor royalties and contingent legal fees expenses fluctuate period to period based on the amount of revenues recognized each period and the mix of specific patent portfolios generating revenues each period.

First quarter 2007 patent-related legal expenses were $1,367,000 versus $366,000 in the comparable 2006 period. Patent-related legal expenses include patent-related prosecution and enforcement costs incurred by outside patent attorneys engaged on an hourly basis and the out-of-pocket expenses incurred by law firms engaged on a contingent fee basis. Patent-related legal expenses fluctuate from period to period based on patent enforcement and prosecution activity associated with ongoing licensing and enforcement programs and the timing of the commencement of new licensing and enforcement programs in each period. Patent-related legal expenses include case related costs billed by outside counsel for economic analyses and damages assessments, expert witnesses and other consultants, case related audio/video presentations for the court, and other litigation support and administrative costs.

The increase in patent related legal expenses in the first quarter of 2007, versus the comparable 2006 period, is primarily due to a net increase in the number of active licensing programs, and as a result, an increase in the number of ongoing patent enforcement litigations, since the first quarter of 2006. The increase in patent related legal expenses is also due to an increase in the number of enforcement actions that are further along in the litigation process, resulting in increased costs incurred in connection with the preparation for depositions, the preparation and response to discovery requests, expert witnesses, damages reports and other costs. We expect patent-related legal expenses to continue to fluctuate quarter to quarter based on the factors summarized above, in connection with the Acacia Technologies group's current and future patent commercialization and enforcement programs.

Financial Condition

Total assets for the Acacia Technologies group were $74,525,000 as of March 31, 2007 compared to $65,770,000 as of December 31, 2006. Cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $53,193,000 as of March 31, 2007 compared to $44,998,000 as of December 31, 2006.

CombiMatrix Group Financial Results

(A Division of Acacia Research Corporation)

For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2007 and 2006

Revenues for the first quarter of 2007 were $1,137,000 versus $1,245,000 in the comparable 2006 period and $859,000 for the fourth quarter of 2006. First quarter 2007 revenues were comprised of $549,000 in government contact revenues and $588,000 in CustomArrayTM product, equipment and service revenues. First quarter 2006 revenues were comprised of $264,000 of government contract revenues and $981,000 of CustomArrayTM product, equipment and service revenues.

The first quarter 2007 division net loss improved to $2,097,000 versus $7,689,000 in the comparable 2006 period. The first quarter 2007 results included non-cash stock compensation, patent amortization and depreciation charges totaling $959,000 versus $1,213,000 in the comparable 2006 period. The first quarter 2007 results also included a non-cash gain of $2,378,000 related to the adjustment of the CombiMatrix group's long-term warrant liability to fair value as of March 31, 2007, compared to a non-cash charge of $1,740,000 for the comparable 2006 period. The change in this non-cash item contributed $4.1 million to the overall $5.6 million improvement in division net loss from the comparable 2006 quarter.

First quarter 2007 government contract costs totaled $534,000 versus $250,000 in the comparable 2006 period. First quarter 2007 internal research and development expenses were $1,848,000 (including non-cash stock compensation charges of $258,000) versus $2,379,000 (including non-cash stock compensation charges of $293,000) in the comparable 2006 period. The overall decrease was due to fewer research and development projects in the current quarter as part of the CombiMatrix group's overall cost reduction efforts.

First quarter 2007 marketing, general and administrative expenses decreased to $2,487,000 (including non-cash stock compensation charges of $217,000) from $3,912,000 (including non-cash stock compensation charges of $402,000) in the comparable 2006 period. Excluding the impact of non-cash stock compensation, the overall decrease was due primarily to reduced rent expense from the February 1, 2007 lease amendment between the CombiMatrix group and its landlord in Mukilteo, Washington, reduced sales and marketing expenses and general and administrative salaries and expenses as part of the CombiMatrix group's overall cost reduction efforts.

Financial Condition

Total assets for the CombiMatrix group were $40,007,000 as of March 31, 2007 compared to $44,214,000 as of December 31, 2006. Cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $10,517,000 as of March 31, 2007 compared to $14,342,000 as of December 31, 2006.
