Financial Times writes that King of Prussia-based wireless technology company InterDigital is reportedly focusing on selling bundles of patents and might consider an outright purchase of the entire company.
The two sources said InterDigital appeared to be less ambitious on valuation this time around. Its expectations last year for the whole company were buoyed by the high price paid for Nortel’s intellectual property assets.
An industry banker said he expected the portfolio would attract serious bids because of the interest among large technology companies -- such as Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), Samsung (NASDAQ: SSNLF), and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) -- seeking to protect their businesses from patent litigation.
