Shares of Spherix, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPEX) Skyrocket on News of Patent Infringement Litigation Update

Intellectual property development company, Spherix, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPEX), provides updates on patent infringement litigation.

NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Spherix Incorporated (SPEX) an intellectual property development company committed to the fostering of technology and monetization of intellectual property, today provided an update on its active patent infringement lawsuits, new lawsuits filed, and spending reduction initiatives.

Anthony Hayes, Chief Executive Officer of Spherix, stated, “Spherix is now in the best position to deliver shareholder value from its patent portfolio than at any time in the past. In the last six months, we’ve effectuated ten new patent infringement lawsuits against defendants with a combined market capitalization of approximately $48 billion. There are more suits on file now than at any time in the last four years. And while most of these suits are recently filed, we are working with our partner Equitable IP to reach fair and equitable settlements with any licensee. Copies of all ten complaints can be viewed on our website, (www.spherix.com). We anticipate additional suits will be filed before year end. I am increasingly encouraged with our strategic position and confident in our ability to create sustainable shareholder value, even as our stock continues to be valued at less than the Company’s net tangible book value.”
