    • Spherix (SPEX -2.7%) has expanded its agreement with IP enforcement/monetization fund Equitable to cover the monetization of certain Nortel and North South patent assets. Spherix previously struck a deal with Equitable to monetize its CompuFill patent portfolio.
    • Spherix CEO Anthony Hayes: "By commencing their work and legal initiatives before May 1, 2016, Equitable will be the beneficiary of a measured yet robust incentive arrangement. Of the 10 new suits that we expect to file, at least seven must apply to the Nortel patents, while two must be against licensees that have public market capitalizations in excess of $1 billion."

    • "Our goal is to drive long-term shareholder value through partnerships that will initiate litigation across numerous technology sectors, including: routers, switching, networking, optical, and internet service," says Spherix (SPEX +21.4%) CEO Anthony Hayes in a letter, trying to drum up shareholder support. "Multiple litigations, against multiple licensees, in multiple technology fields will help to optimize potential revenue generation."
    • He asserts Spherix can now pursue its strategy, after having recently satisfied preferred stock payment obligations and seen the termination of security interests on its assets. "Prior to the end of 2015, we did not have the right to leverage our portfolio in such a manner."
    • Hayes adds licensing talks continue with IP risk-management services firm RPX, and that his company hopes to reach a deal. "By agreement, these discussions can continue until May 23rd of this year. If an agreement is not reached by May 23rd, then the agreed "stay" on litigation expires and the number of potential licensees to our portfolio increases significantly."
    • The letter comes after Spherix carried out a 1:19 reverse split on Friday.

    • Spherix (SPEX -1%) states the Eastern Virginia federal court handling its infringement suit against Verizon issued a Markman Order "interpreting certain key claims" in Verizon's favor for the sole patent at issue in the case. As a result, Verizon's motion for summary judgment was granted.
    • CEO Anthony Hayes: "We are disappointed by the judge's decision in this case.  At this stage, we are reviewing the Court's decision, analyzing the appealable issues and considering all our options." The company notes it's asserting 20 other patents in different cases, and that the infringement claims asserted in a second suit against Verizon weren't affected.
