Acacia Research Corporation (Nasdaq:ACTG)(Nasdaq:CBMX) and CombiMatrix Corporation announced today that on June 8, 2007 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission declared the effectiveness of CombiMatrix's S-1 registration statement. Following the redemption period required by Acacia's Articles of Incorporation, on August 15, 2007, ("Redemption Date") CombiMatrix Corporation will split off from Acacia Research Corporation through the redemption of all outstanding shares of Acacia Research-CombiMatrix common stock (Nasdaq:CBMX).

On the Redemption Date, every ten (10) shares of Acacia Research-CombiMatrix common stock outstanding on August 15, 2007, will be redeemed for one (1) share of common stock of CombiMatrix Corporation. CombiMatrix Corporation common stock is scheduled to begin trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on August 15, 2007, under the symbol CBMXD.

Until August 15, 2007, Acacia Research-CombiMatrix common stock will continue to trade on Nasdaq under the symbol CBMX.

"CombiMatrix will become a separate public company on the date of the split-off. Acacia Research Corporation will continue to trade on the National NASDAQ Market under the ACTG symbol," commented Paul Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Acacia Research.
