Market Cap 1.8B, Win from Apple 400M+, Win from Royalties = 1B+
The reason why VHC dropped the ITC complaint is that they have been bought out. Hearing it first from me. I think the announcement will come in the next two weeks. It doesn't make sense for Apple to keep paying royalties when in fact... they could just buy VHC for cheaper than paying out the royalties. Kendal would retire a very rich man and not have to worry about running a company. Apple inherits the patent rights and gets even with Samsung.
Why would VHC/Larsen sell for a "cheaper than paying out the royalties" price? One would assume any offer would need to be a multiple of the current price. If you project earnings (with Cisco and Apple), account for cash on hand, apply a reasonable Technology company PE, add in a takeout bonus and you get a number 100 ponts higher than today.
