e.Digital Announces First Quarter Results

e.Digital Announces First Quarter Results 
Receives Notice of Allowance for New Patent 
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/13 --  e.Digital Corporation
(OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and
future-defining patented technologies, today reported financial
results for its first quarter of fiscal 2014, ended June 30, 2013. 
The Company reported a net loss of $71,437 or $(0.00) per share for
the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to a net loss of $332,983
or $(0.00) per share for the prior year's first quarter. For the
first quarter of fiscal 2014 revenues totaled $449,458 compared to
$132,546 for the first quarter of the prior year. The most recent
quarter included $392,000 of patent license revenues compared to no
comparable patent license revenues for the first quarter of the prior
year. Operating expenses increased to $520,895 from $465,529 for the
prior year's comparable quarter primarily due to patent licensing and
litigation costs associated with patent license revenues. 
"Positive results from our Flash-R(TM) patent monetization efforts
allowed us to significantly reduce losses for the quarter compared to
the prior year's first quarter," commented Fred Falk, President and
CEO of e.Digital. "With the assistance of our patent licensing law
firm, Handal & Associates, we have been aggressively pursuing parties
believed to infringe the Company's Flash-R patents covering the use
of flash memory technologies. We entered into licensing and
settlement agreements with multiple defendants and we expect more
significant licensing revenues as we progress through the litigation
and licensing process.  
"Our intellectual property continues to expand as we recently
received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent and
Trademark Office for our patent application titled System and Method
for Managing Information Stored in Semiconductors. The allowance of
this patent along with a recently filed continuation, serves as the
foundation of our new MicroSignet(TM) patent portfolio. The
technology allows naturally occurring defects introduced in the
semiconductor fabrication process to be used as a 'fingerprint'
unique to each integrated circuit. As some of these faults are
transient, these 'fingerprints' cannot be copied. So, every device in
a system becomes
 part of rights management and data security. We
believe this portfolio will be attractive to manufacturers of
semiconductors. This is the third significant technology portfolio
now including Flash-R, Nunchi(R) and MicroSignet IP and related
"The marketing of our Nunchi patent portfolio continues through
IPmetrics Intellectual Property Consulting, which is managing the
valuation and monetization of this portfolio. We believe they are
making good progress in getting the portfolio into the hands of the
prospective licensees, many of whom are currently conducting due
diligence," concluded Falk.
