    Acacia Research Corp (NASDAQ:ACTG) had two corporate insiders buy shares earlier this week, including its most influential executive. Chief Executive Officer Marvin E. Key purchased 55,000 shares on Monday at a price of $4.15 per share, boosting his ownership to 190,833 shares. Freshly-appointed Director, Frank E. Walsh III, acquired a new stake of 35,000 units of common stock on Monday at a price tag of $4.13 per unit.

    In early March of this year, the company received a proposal from ARC Acquisition Company LLC to purchase all Acacia’s outstanding shares for $3.72 per share in cash, but the Board determined that the proposal was inadequate. Shares of Acacia have gained 22% in the past three months and are currently trading notably above the $3.72-offer, but they continue to trade significantly below the 52-week high of $11.34 reached at the end of April 2015. Acacia Research, which invests in, licenses and enforces patented technologies, generated revenue of $24.72 million in the first quarter of 2016, down from $34.21 million in the same period of 2015. First-quarter non-GAAP net income was $2.53 million, as compared to $3.16 million reported for the first quarter of 2015.

    There were 12 hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey with stakes in Acacia Research at the end of 2015, which amassed nearly 16% of the company’s outstanding shares. John W. Rogers’ Ariel Investments had 3.58 million shares of Acacia Research Corp (NASDAQ:ACTG) in its equity portfolio at the end of December.

    No Way ! Not a serious offer at that price point . Best thing about todays announcement is complacent shorts that have been adding / building their position over last several months , " 8 million shares short " need to better understand the risk associated with shorting a security that has a pile of $ & de minimis enterprise value and probably a large tax loss carry forward = NOL

    LANO, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 14, 2016) - ARC Acquisition Company, LLC and its affiliate Uniloc Luxembourg S.A. ("Uniloc"), is pleased to announce its communication to the Board of Directors of Acacia Research Corporation (NASDAQ:ACTG) last week of an offer to acquire all the outstanding shares of the Company at a price of $3.72 per share, which is a 5% premium to Friday's closing price of $3.53 per share and represents a market capitalization of approximately $189 million.

    "Uniloc spent several years developing a proprietary technology platform and business model which allows us to operate at comparatively higher margins and lower costs, in almost every respect. We look forward to bringing this technology to scale with Acacia's patent assets and business," said Uniloc CEO and co-founder Craig Etchegoyen. He further stated, "The ability to leverage this technology to acquire high-quality patents at a comparatively low cost, and then to augment their value through internal development of additional complementary patents, allows for a lower-cost and more-productive patent base. The technology further supports a reduced cost of outside legal and other experts in the enforcement process. These together These together provide a foundation for significantly higher profit margins, and operations with much lower overhead at scale. We fully expect that this operational model, coupled with Uniloc's history of successes in enforcement matters, can bring similar results to Acacia. We continue to strongly believe in the profitability of patent licensing, but only when leveraged off a fully-developed and modern technology base. I look forward to meeting with Acacia's board of directors to discuss the path forward."

    Uniloc is a patent development, acquisition and enforcement company with a broad set of patent portfolios. Over 60% of the Company's approximately 300 patent portfolios were developed internally.

    You are misunderstanding this morning press release ,Management is not giving company away for cash value they have agreed to NOTHING. Uniloc proposed a cash tender at a price point that reflects no premium to cash and no value for assets .
