InterDigital Patent Acquisition Strategic Options

Following the recent big deal regarding Nortel's patents and Motorola's patents, InterDigital's patents are scheduled to be the next big acquisition deal.

As to the seller, it is a good opportunity considering the uncertainty of future money making power in emerging LTE licensing market: InterDigital's licensing power in LTE is expected to be weaker compare to the situations in 2G and 3G based on TechIPm's LTE essential patent analysis over the past 3 years.

As to the buyers, it is also a good opportunity not only to make up their current LTE patent portfolio but also to get additional cash flow source through the existing InterDigital's licensing agreement.

TechIPm, LLC (http://www.techipm.com/) provides patent portfolio evaluation service for patent due diligence in mobile business acquisition. LTE patent portfolio evaluation can provide the followings.

1. What is the quality of the LTE patent portfolio?
2. What are the strengths/weaknesses of the LTE patent portfolio?
3. Comparative analysis among the patent portfolios (e.g. InterDigital v. Motorola).
4. Who are the best candidate for mobile business acquisition considering the business integration and/or compatibility?
5.What are the potential risks considering the possible patent lawsuits?
