RPX Corporation

RPX Corporation (NASDAQ: RPXC) helps operating companies reduce the cost and risk associated with NPE (non-practicing entity) patent litigation. Members of the RPX client network pay an annual fee that reflects their particular NPE risk. We then use this aggregated capital to
acquire potentially problematic patents and rights in the open market and out of active litigations before they can become a costly problem for our clients. RPX promises never to litigate or assert the patents it purchases.
In addition to our core defensive patent acquisition service, RPX also negotiates syndicates to purchase and clear significant portfolios from the market on behalf of our clients. And we offer unique NPE litigation insurance—with policies written on A rated paper (AM Best) and backed by a Lloyd’s syndicate. Further, RPX provides clients with in-depth industry data, market intelligence, and patent advisory services.
RPX has invested nearly $2 billion to acquire 10,000+ US and international patent assets and rights, achieved more than 800 litigation dismissals, and prevented more than 3,000 NPE litigations from occurring. Since our founding in 2008, we have saved our clients more than $2.5 billion in avoided NPE legal and settlement costs.
The RPX network comprises more than 220 clients in sectors including automotive, consumer electronics and personal computing, E-commerce and software, financial services, media content and distribution, mobile communications, networking and semiconductors.
