On Aug 12, 2015, 460 patents from at least 94 anonymous shell companies were reassigned to S. Aqua Semiconductor LLC. All of these shell companies were created in late 2006 to early 2008.
Some of these patents are very lucrative. For example, in 2009, the shell company "Mount Hamilton Partners, LLC" sued Google, Groupon, and OpenTable for patent infringement, and the case was settled for an undisclosed amount (Mount Hamilton Partners, LLC assigned to PRIAXESS SOFTWARE, LLC, which assigned to S. Aqua Semiconductor LLC). I have not looked into litigation of the other portfolios, and there's no way to determine how much licensing revenue is being generated by these patents.
Mr. Verges' mistake was in consolidating all these portfolios into the S. Aqua Semiconductor shell company, which is linked back to NewMarket. This property rightfully belongs to the shareholders of NewMarket.
