NEW YORK - October 4, 2013 - Vringo, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNG), a company engaged in
the innovation,  development and  monetization  of intellectual  property  and 
mobile technologies,  today provided  an  update to  its shareholders  on  its 
recent and near term events.

"We are taking  this opportunity  to update  our shareholders  on progress  in 
three of our  wholly-owned subsidiaries' ongoing  patent enforcement  actions: 
(i) against Google and others in U.S. District Court for the Eastern  District 
of Virginia and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit; (ii) against ZTE
Corporation and its subsidiaries in  the United Kingdom, Germany, France,  and 
Australia, and a preliminary inquiry in Spain; and (iii) against ADT and  Tyco 
Integrated Security  in  U.S. District  Court  for the  Southern  District  of 
Florida," said Andrew D. Perlman, Chief Executive Officer of Vringo.

I/P Engine, Inc. v. AOL Inc., Google, Inc. et al.

Eastern District of Virginia

On November 6, 2012, a jury in U.S. District Court in Norfolk, Virginia  ruled 
in favor of  Vringo's wholly  owned subsidiary  I/P Engine,  Inc. and  against 
Google and the  other defendants  with respect  to their  infringement of  the 
asserted claims of asserted patents. The jury also upheld the validity of the
asserted patents,  found  that  past  damages  are  due  to  I/P  Engine,  and 
established a royalty rate.

I/P Engine's  case relates  to  Google's search  advertising system,  not  its 
organic search  system.  Therefore,  Google's  "Hummingbird"  update  to  its 
organic search system is not related  to the product that I/P Engine  accused. 
Vringo does  not believe  the  "Hummingbird" update  has  any impact  on  its 

As of August  26, 2013,  I/P Engine's  Notice of  Calculation of  Supplemental 
Damages, Pre-judgment Interest  and Post-judgment Interest  was fully  briefed 
and is ripe for determination by the district court.

The parties are currently  litigating before the district  court the issue  of 
ongoing royalties and what additional reasonable royalty is owed to I/P Engine
for Google  and  the other  defendants'  continued infringement.  Google  has 
asserted that, as of May 2013, it implemented a "design around" to its  system 
such that it no longer infringes the asserted patents. To resolve the ongoing
royalty  rate  and  whether  Google's  alleged  design  around  is   colorably 
different, the district court set a discovery and briefing schedule.

  *I/P Engine served its expert reports on September 25, 2013.

  *Defendants should serve their expert reports on October 15, 2013.

  *The parties will then submit briefs  to the district court on October  30, 
    2013 and November 10, 2013, respectively.

The district court also wants the parties to attempt to set their own  royalty 
rate before the district court imposes  one. To that end, the district  court 
ordered that within five days  of completing the aforementioned discovery  and 
briefing schedule, the parties shall meet to negotiate an appropriate  ongoing 
royalty rate, using 20.9% of U.S. AdWords revenues as the appropriate  royalty 

Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit

I/P Engine and Defendants have appealed various portions of trial to the Court
of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

  *Defendants filed their opening brief on July 22, 2013.

  *I/P Engine  filed its  response and  cross-appeal brief  on September  26, 

  *Defendants' response and reply brief is due November 7, 2013.

Vringo expects this appeal to be scheduled for oral argument during the  first 
quarter of 2014.

Vringo Infrastructure, Inc. v. ZTE Corporation

Vringo's wholly  owned subsidiaries,  Vringo Infrastructure,  Inc. and  Vringo 
Germany GmbH, have filed a combined 7 patent infringement actions against  ZTE 
Corporation and its subsidiaries in  the United Kingdom, Germany, France,  and

wireless infrastructure and handsets.
