LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 25, 2014) - Marathon Patent Group, Inc. ( NASDAQ : MARA ) ("Marathon"), a patent licensing company, announced that the Company's Board of Directors has declared a stock dividend of one additional share of Common Stock for each share of Common Stock held by such holders as of the close of business December 15, 2014.

Doug Croxall, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Marathon, stated, "We are very pleased to announce that our Board has declared a one-time stock dividend resulting in a doubling of the number of shares of our common stock. Today's announcement is the result of our strong financial and stock price performance and the confidence we have in our ability to continue to create long-term profitable growth."
