e.Digital Reports Second Quarter Results

e.Digital Reports Second Quarter Results 
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/13/13 --   e.Digital Corporation
(OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and
future-defining patented technologies, today announced results for
its second quarter of fiscal 2014, ended September 30, 2013. 
Recent Highlights: 


 
--  Progress with Flash-R(TM)patent licensing: Through its law firm,
    Handal & Associates, the Company has entered into license and
    settlement agreements with a number of defendants. A majority of the
    recent settlements negotiated during the current quarter are in the
    process of being finalized and documented. The Company expects
    additional settlements before the end of the calendar year. During the
    last quarter, the Company filed a notice of appeal to the Federal
    Circuit Court of Appeals, challenging the August 21, 2013 collateral
    estoppel ruling that could have an impact on the course of future
    litigation against non-settled parties.
--  Grant of new patent to portfolio of IP: The United States Patent and
    Trademark Office has granted the Company a new patent, US 8,572,440,
    titled System and Method for Managing Information Stored in
    Semiconductors. This patent is the foundation of the Company's newly
    created microSignet(TM) IP portfolio. The Company has already filed
    a continuation patent application that it expects will further
    strengthen the portfolio.
--  Continued marketing the Nunchi(R)family of patents: The Company is
    marketing its Nunchi patent portfolio through a modified licensing
    strategy involving the assistance of its law firm, Handal &
    Associates.

  
Management Commentary:
 "Our legal team at Handal & Associates has
worked very hard navigating the challenges presented by the
defendants in our current litigation activities," commented Fred
Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital. "Good progress has been made
and as a result, we anticipate increased cash receipts through the
balance of the current round of license and settlement activities. We
remain dedicated and financially prepared to defend our patents
through trial against any defendants who infringe our technologies
and do not settle and license. We anticipate that the proceeds from
the current round of settlements will help fund our overall
litigation and licensing strategy, not only for our Flash-R patents
but for our Nunchi and microSignet patents as well. e.Digital's
litigation activities have created an awareness in the industries and
among current licensees, of our Nunchi and microSignet patents and
have opened the door for serious licensing discussions for those
patents, leading us to expand our relationship with Handal &
Associates. Although the Company reported a financial loss for fiscal
Q2, we expect increased patent license revenues for the current
quarter based on the recent settlements and current negotiations,"
concluded Falk. 
Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Summary:
 The Company reported a
net loss of $410,113 or $(0.00) per share, for the second quarter of
fiscal 2014 compared to a net loss of $376,005 or $(0.00) per share

of patent license revenues compared to $2,000 for the second quarter
of the prior year. Operating expenses increased to $511,842 from
$500,954 for the prior year's comparable quarter primarily due to
increased patent-related legal costs.

net loss of $481,550 or $(0.00) per share on revenues of $551,187.
