HORSHAM, Pa. -- January 2, 2013

Reed Technology and Information Services Inc., part of the LexisNexis^® family
and a leading provider of content management services, and PatentCore, a
publisher of online patent office analytics, are pleased to announce the
launch of Reed Tech Patent Advisor^TM information services, a family of
on-line data intelligence tools for patent professionals.

The Patent Advisor service provides patent professionals with strategic
insight based upon information gleaned from an analysis of more than 5 million
patent applications. The new collection of on-line services expands upon the
previously released Reed Tech Patent Application Reports with a variety of
additional new and unique offerings. The listing of Patent Advisor services
currently includes:

  *Patent Advisor Open Search Service
    This simple to use on-line search system provides instant access to
    comprehensive and dynamically updated performance data for every U.S.
    patent examiner and art unit. Reported performance attributes include, for
    example, data related to RCE turnaround time, allowance rates, and appeal
    process outcomes.

  *Patent Advisor Report Service
    This on-line service enables a user to select any patent application and
    quickly obtain a corresponding printable PDF application report that
    includes commentary and useful statistics that reveal what is “normal” for
    the examiner and the art unit assigned to the selected application.

  *Patent Advisor Corporate Dashboard Service
    Corporations now have easy on-line access to comprehensive and dynamically
    updated analysis of how different law firms, lawyers, examiners and art
    units have managed the assets in their own product portfolio or in one of
    their competitors.

  *Patent Advisor Law Firm Dashboard Service
    IP attorneys and their organizations can access this on-line service to
    quickly and easily compare their clients’ patent application statuses to a
    broad universe of metrics specific to the associated examiners and art
    units processing the applications. This information is useful for
    improving efficiency, for supporting marketing efforts, and for managing
    client expectations.

“We are excited to be working closely with PatentCore in bringing new and
unique value to the IP community focused on managing their patent application
portfolios and patent prosecution decisions,” said David Ballai, CIO & VP
Commercial Solutions, Reed Technology. “Patent Advisor now helps our clients
to make exceptionally informed decisions about their patent application
management strategy, helping to shorten the prosecution cycle, improve the
likelihood of a high-quality patent grant, and drive material cost
efficiencies into the process.”

“Our collaboration with the team at Reed Technology draws together the
strengths of a global service provider with a deep understanding of U.S.
patent information processing with an IP business dedicated to the delivery of
actionable business intelligence,” said Chris Holt, CEO at PatentCore. “The
combination of business strengths will help to deliver to a big data solution
designed to enable those in the IP community to benefit from a much deeper
understanding of patent acquisition processes.”

ReedTech Patent Advisor™ delivers the ability to confidently make
analytics-driven strategic decisions based on predictable patterns
demonstrated by more than the 7,500 U.S. patent examiners during patent
prosecution. The services also include tools for evaluating the relative
efficiency with which companies and law firms obtain patents. To learn more
