NEW YORK - October 5, 2015 - Vringo, Inc. (VRNG), a company engaged in the innovation, development and monetization of intellectual property, today issued a statement to shareholders.

"We remain confident in our licensing, litigation and innovation strategies.  Management remains committed to rebuilding shareholder value and confidence," said Andrew Perlman, Chief Executive Officer of Vringo. "Given the exceptionally low historical odds of being heard at the Supreme Court, we believe that the decline in today`s share price does not accurately reflect the change in Vringo`s underlying value."

"The decision by the Supreme Court does not have any effect on the over 600 patents and applications in Vringo`s patent portfolios. We continue our global litigation against ZTE, which remains unaffected by today`s decision, and which to date, has achieved positive results and rulings in many countries around the world. While ZTE is a large player in the telecommunications infrastructure and handset industries, it represents a small percentage of the revenue that is generated from sales of those products."

"In addition, we continue to develop intellectual property in other areas.  Recently, Vringo`s Akadiri portfolio, which relates to content distribution, expanded after the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office granted two patents: U.S. Patent Nos. 9,047,626 and 9,117,228.  This portfolio dates back to 1999 and now includes 7 patents as well as several pending applications."

"Although we are disappointed with today`s decision, Vringo remains focused on monetizing our intellectual property assets.  After winning a jury trial and numerous re-examinations attempts at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, in August of 2014, we received an adverse split-decision at the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that included a strongly worded dissenting opinion. As a management team, we engaged David Boies, one of the most preeminent and well respected appellate litigators. We believe that the briefs submitted to the Supreme Court were powerful and compelling; however, at this point we have exhausted all of our potential remedies as it relates to I/P Engine`s case against Google et al.  Like all of our investors, we view this decision as an example of injustice caused by an appellate court that chose to ignore an indisputably clear jury verdict," concluded Mr. Perlman.
