Acacia Research Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

Creative Internet Advertising Corporation (“CIAC”), an operating subsidiary of Acacia, received a $12.5 million final judgment stemming from its May 2009 trial verdict and corresponding damages award in its patent infringement lawsuit with Yahoo! Inc. Yahoo! Inc. appealed the verdict. In April 2011, a three Judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed the District Court's judgment of infringement in a 2 to 1 decision.

In 2009, CIAC purchased a specific contingency insurance policy under which the insurer agreed to indemnify CIAC for covered losses incurred as a result of a final adjudication entered in the underlying litigation which resulted in a revised final judgment amount that was less than the $12.5 million final judgment covered under the policy (hereinafter, “verdict insurance”). As a result of the reversal of the District Court's judgment described above, in September 2011, CIAC submitted a claim under the insurance policy and received $12.5 million in verdict insurance proceeds.
