Dutton Associates Featured Company: Patriot Scientific Corp. (PTSC.OB)

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

As a leading intellectual-property licensing company based out of Carlsbad, CA, Patriot Scientific Corporation engages in development and marketing, and supports innovative technologies that satisfy the demands of emerging markets for wireless devices, smart cards, home appliances, network gateways, entertainment technology, biomedical devices, and industrial controllers. Their key priority is to serve the world’s industries through scientific innovation. Most of their focus is set on utilizing their resources to invest in discovering and licensing technologies that possess the potential to produce breakthrough solutions and advanced technology.

A joint venture between Patriot Scientific and The TPL Group was established in 2005, which unified both parties’ interests in a portfolio of fundamental microprocessor patents that are in the middle of a global $200 billion microprocessor end-use market. Both companies own 50% of the joint venture and share in the proceeds of licensing activities, as distributed by the joint venture pursuant to the agreements. Alliacense, a TPL Group entity, is solely responsible for the commercialization and licensing of the unified patent portfolio.

Marketed as MMP, or the Moore Microprocessor Patent, this specific portfolio contains intellectual property that is jointly owned by both companies. Within the portfolio are several U.S. patents as well as their European and Japanese counterparts. Both Patriot Scientific and the TPL Group maintain that their jointly owned patents protect techniques used in designing microprocessors, microcontrollers, digital signal processors (DSP’s), embedded processors, and system-on-chip (SoC) implementations. At least three of the patents are fundamentally crucial to virtually every microprocessor design. Global sales by potential licensees of products applying technologies protected by the jointly owned patents are estimated to be in excess of $200 billion annually.

Patriot Scientific Corp.’s (PTSC.OB) President and CEO Issues Letter to Shareholders

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Rick Goener, President and CEO of Patriot Scientific, issued a letter today in order to update all shareholders on the company’s activities. In the letter, he stated his intention to provide regular communication through letters of this sort which will provide insight on topical issues and provide a uniform status report on company activities. Selected highlights from the May letter are as follows:

Update on Positioning Patriot for Future Growth: The company has identified several interesting patent portfolios to expand their licensing efforts. These IP portfolios involve microcontroller, power management, embedded memory and mobile networking IP. The company is engaged in exploratory meetings and will next analyze the attractiveness of licensing prospects based on market assessments, technical support needs, and economic return to Patriot.

Auction Rate Product Obligations: In November 2007, the board and CFO of the company outlined and approved an investment policy to allow certain of the company’s funds not immediately required for the day-to-day operations at the company to be discretionally managed by Deutsche Bank (DB), a large and reputable banking institution. One of the mechanisms used by DB to achieve the objectives of safety and liquidity had been to invest in various FFELP (Federal Family Education Loan Program) Auction Rate Obligations that are sponsored by different state agencies. Since their inception 20 years ago, these investments have operated uninterrupted in a liquid market that provides for monthly interest rate resets.

Shareholders’ Feedback and Concerns: What is the status of future dividends, a potential reverse split, and listing on NASDAQ/NYSE/AMEX? While no specific timeline has been outlined as they move toward an operating company with products, customers, and markets, the company expects not to make further dividend distributions, choosing to instead use the cash and capital assets (stock) of the company to pursue M&A efforts.

In regards to the reverse split, the company believes that a reverse split will not risk a reduction of the market capitalization of the company. Additionally, the company has resumed its share buyback program, and has recently been actively buying shares in the open market as they view the current price to be at an attractive level to redeem shares. Since the resumption of the program in April, the company has purchased over 2 million shares.
