NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- October 16, 2013

Acacia Research Corporation (NASDAQ:ACTG), the industry leader in patent
licensing, announced the formal launch of its evolved brand and website after
detailed industry analysis and internal review.

Matthew Vella, CEO of Acacia Research Corporation, states, “While we are
extremely proud of our roots, it was imperative to address the evolution of
our brand and more importantly, how we communicate externally. The general
public, our stakeholders and industry analysts must have a more transparent
view into our patent assets and business opportunities. This view includes a
detailed explanation of our processes, capabilities and a perspective on the
overall IP landscape.”

“Bottom line, our goal was to create a website that captures not just today’s
Acacia, but the future of the company and its patent partners,” adds Vella.

Acacia’s website showcases accomplishments and its depth of organizational
expertise. Via the Knowledge Center section, the goal is to shed greater light
on the benefits of innovation and patent partnerships.

Acacia Research Corporation is built on the belief that inventors and their
patents are essential to economic growth and job creation. Strong patent
protection also represents the nation’s key competitive advantage in the
global marketplace. Inventors and patent owners should be empowered and fairly
rewarded for their patented inventions.

Acacia CEO Matthew Vella concludes, “We strive to present inventors and
organizations with opportunities that unleash the full potential of their
patents and patent portfolios.”
