    Vringo, Inc. : Vringo Extends Its Lawsuit Against ZTE in Germany with
                              Additional Patent

Trial Scheduled for September 24, 2013 on First Patent Vringo Asserted Against
                                ZTE in Germany

NEW YORK -  February, 21,  2013 -  Vringo, Inc.  (NYSE MKT:  VRNG), a  company 
engaged in the innovation, development and monetization of mobile technologies
and intellectual property, today  announced that its wholly-owned  subsidiary, 
Vringo Germany GmbH, extended its patent infringement lawsuit against the  ZTE 
Corp. China, and its German subsidiary, ZTE Deutschland GmbH (ZTE).

"This extension  is another  step  in Vringo's  continued enforcement  of  its 
intellectual property assets.  We believe that  ZTE is one  of several  large 
multinational  telecom  equipment  companies  that  are  currently  infringing 
patents in our  Telecommunications Infrastructure Portfolio,"  said Andrew  D. 
Perlman, Chief Executive Officer of Vringo.

The pleading, filed in the District Court of Mannheim, alleges infringement of
the German part of European Patent 1,186,119. Declarations have been filed at
the European Telecommunications and Standards Institute (ETSI) that cover  the 
patent. ZTE's accused devices  are believed to fall  within the scope of  the 
patent. Vringo's complaint brief will be served on ZTE.

According to the complaint, Vringo is seeking injunctive relief, rendering  of 
accounts, and damages.

"This case  is  part  of  Vringo's licensing  and  enforcement  program.  The 
asserted patent covers fundamental aspects  of network operation, and is  part 
of  our  telecom  infrastructure  portfolio,"   said  David  Cohen,  Head   of 
Litigation, Licensing and Intellectual Property at Vringo.

"Our lawsuit  against ZTE  was filed  in  Germany in  November 2012.  In  the 
absence of  an  agreed settlement,  trial  on  the first  asserted  patent  is 
scheduled on September 24,  2013. Further enforcement  actions may follow  in 
due course  against ZTE  and other  companies with  products that  we  believe 
infringe our  patents. As  with  all other  unlicensed companies  we  believe 
infringe our patents, if ZTE does not agree to a license with us, then we will
ask the court for appropriate relief," Mr. Cohen continued.
