    THIS IS HUGE... BIG BIG MONEY COMING.. PPS WILL FLY... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ITS about time..

  • Nokia may have retired from the global phone market, but it's still got a pension to collect in the form of patent licenses from decades of R&D. This morning, the company announced that it had settled a dispute with Samsung over the licensing of its technologies, boosting the Finnish firm's bottom line by hundreds of millions of euros. Nokia's dedicated patent unit, Nokia Technologies, says it expects sales of around #$%$1.02 billion ($1.1 billion) in 2015 following the deal, with an additional #$%$1.3 billion ($1.4 billion) in the years 2016 to 2018.

    "THERE HAVE BEEN EXPECTATIONS THAT NOKIA COULD MAKE MORE MONEY."

    Unfortunately, this isn't enough to satisfy investors. Although the settlement will increase sales in Nokia's patent unit from #$%$578 million in 2014 to around #$%$800 million ($868 million), analysts had expected more ? predicting sales nearer #$%$900 million. Nokia's shares consequently fell 10 percent following the news, with an analyst for Swedish bank Nordea telling Reuters: "There have been expectations that Nokia could make more money with their patent portfolio than Ericsson. This outcome did not support that. Estimates will be revised." Nokia says it has spent more than #$%$50 billion on R&D over the past two decades, collecting some 30,000 individual patents in the process.

    This dip in investor confidence comes as Nokia attempts to refocus its business on telecoms and networking equipment. In 2013, it sold its phone business to Microsoft, and last year it negotiated a #$%$15.6 billion takeover of French telecoms firm Alcatel-Lucent. Investors, though, worry that the deal will cause trouble for Nokia as it tries to integrate the two companies. Nokia will have to hope its patent pension can be boosted in the next few years to keep shareholders happy ? thankfully, the company has an ongoing dispute with LG that it's yet to settle.

  • Nokia announced today that it has finally settled its long-running patent dispute with Samsung and is expecting a boost of more than $1 billion dollars over the next three years as a result.

    Nokia entered into a licensing agreement with Samsung in 2013 that allowed both companies to use each other’s patents until the end of 2018. The settlement announced today was part of an independent arbitration on the agreement, lessening the likelihood of any messy lawsuits in the future.

    When the latest announcement was made, Nokia’s shares fell 10 percent according to Reuters, as analysts over-estimated the settlement amount by $100 million for 2014 patent sales alone.

    The settlement increases the patent sales to over $800 million for 2014 but analysts had predicted that figure to be closer to $900 million.

    Nokia could potentially have gotten more money from the South Korean company if it hadn’t chosen to go down the arbitration route, but as Nokia’s President Ramzi Haidamus said: “the use of independent arbitration to resolve differences in patent cases is a recognized best practice.”

    Apple recently came to a similar agreement with Ericsson and will be paying the company an undisclosed amount plus continuing royalties for seven years to use its patents.

    Hardware manufacturers often have very fickle relationships when it comes to patents and sharing technologies, so Nokia and Samsung have shown a level of maturity. Nokia still has an ongoing case with LG to settle as well, so it could be about to get some more profits.

    The settlement means that despite selling its phone business to Microsoft in 2014, the company will continue to reap the rewards of its once-dominant handset patents until the end of 2018.

    The company is in the process of a makeover since its takeover of Alcatel-Lucent and is now focusing on networking and telecoms equipment. Nokia is now expected to receive $1.4 billion between 2016-2018, which should keep any worried shareholders on-side for now.

  • Glu Mobile (GLUU -0.9%) has made an investment in Reykjavik-based trivia game developer Plain Vanilla, with eyes on developing a related TV program and the prospect that Glu will buy the company outright.Glu's investing up to $7.5M in promissory notes that are convertible into a minority stake in Plain Vanilla, makers of QuizUp, and it has a call option to acquire the firm at a pre-agreed price for 15 months from the initial investment's closing. Glu chief Niccolo de Masi is joining QuizUp's board.The two will focus joint efforts on developing a QuizUp TV program in partnership with NBCUniversal and focused on audience interaction (and driving downloads of the app, which has 40M registered users).Shares are lower today but hovering just above a 52-week low of $2.04, made last Friday.
