Come on. The fundamentals on this company have been the same for five years and yet management hasn't been able to license Nokia, MOT or even re-license LG.
Thank God for Chairman Clontz who is capable of seeing the forest for the trees, and is enough of a strategic thinker to recognize that Google's patent vulnerability presents IDCC with a once in a lifetime opportunity!
There's something to be said for that. People work hard to grow a company and make it worth something but there are times when it is right to take the money and retire to an island in the sun with bikini clad women serving you drinks all day. I've seen plenty of folks work themselves to death at a company only to see it falter. IDCC won't falter, but patent IP is worth more today than it ever has been in the past. Take the money and retire.
