M·CAM President Featured in Bloomberg Article Regarding AOL Patent Sale
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - March 29, 2012- M·CAM President, David Pratt, was quoted in a Bloomberg article today, written by Edmund Lee, discussing the AOL patent portfolio sale.
"AOL Inc.'s patent portfolio would be valued at about $290 million in a sale, less than a third of the amount that shareholder Starboard Value has estimated it could generate, according to patent-advisory firm M-Cam Inc.
“That is the absolute ceiling price,” David Pratt, president of Charlottesville, Va.-based M-Cam, said. “It's worth much less than what investors have estimated, based largely on the fact that most of AOL's patents are not commercially viable, or junk grade.”
