KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 11, 2011 — InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC) today announced financial guidance for second quarter 2011. InterDigital® expects second quarter 2011 revenue to be approximately $69 million. This revenue guidance does not include the potential impact of any additional new agreements that may be signed during second quarter 2011 or the potential impact of any royalties identified in audits regularly conducted by the company.
“Excluding the potential contribution from any new license agreements signed or audits we may resolve during the balance of the quarter, second quarter 2011 revenues from our existing customers are expected to decrease by roughly $9.5 million, or approximately 12%, from first quarter 2011,” commented Scott McQuilkin, InterDigital’s Chief Financial Officer. “This projected sequential decline is due primarily to a decrease in revenue from our per-unit customers based in Japan of $2.8 million, a reduction in past sales of $2.0 million, and a decrease of $2.0 million related to the transition of an existing customer agreement from fixed fee to per-unit.”
