VOIP PAL.com, Inc. (OTCPK:VPLM) is looking for acquisition opportunities. Emil Malak, Chief Executive Officer of VPLM, stated, "We are confident that our technology is such that whichever company acquires our patent suite will hold the keys to controlling VoIP calling.

Voip-Pal.com Announces Aggressive Continuation of Initiatives Aimed at Securing Patent Licensing Agreements and Monetizing its Intellectual Property
Sep 29 14
Voip-Pal.com Inc. announced they have renewed initiatives geared towards securing non-exclusive licensing agreements for its proprietary patent suite of VoIP related intellectual property. Management has begun the process of notifying targeted companies of highly probable and perceived past, present and potential future patent infringement. Each of the targeted companies will receive written notification from Voip-Pal attorneys and given an opportunity to negotiate a non-exclusive licensing agreement. Failure to secure proper licensing of Voip-Pal's technology will result in legal action initiated by Voip-Pal in order to fully protect the integrity of its intellectual property and the best interests of its shareholders. Management is hopeful that companies receiving these notifications will give Voip-Pal's intellectual property the same level of respect and consideration as they demand for their own. The company has identified four telecommunications sectors in which they consider their patented technology has been and is currently being utilized, Cell Phone Operators, Internet Providers, Hardware Vendors, and Social Network Providers. Voip-Pal management strongly believes its patents are foundational to the future of VoIP and will play a key role in the expansion of Internet telecommunications. The Board of Directors has spent much of the past year developing a business plan for monetization of its patents while simultaneously discussing the prospects of being acquired directly with potential interested suitors. Pursuing non-exclusive licensing agreements is a concurrent effort in which Voip-Pal is engaged, along with their ongoing activities to realize the main objective of selling the Company. Voip-Pal remains in discussions with potential buyers and hopes to provide its shareholders an acceptable acquisition offer in the near future. Management feels Voip-Pal's value would be significantly enhanced by securing non-exclusive licensing agreements with companies in the aforementioned sectors. The company is also assisting Southbank Capital in their efforts to present Voip-Pal for sale to their existing relationships. Southbank has provided Voip-Pal with excellent exposure to key international groups that have expressed interest in acquiring the Company and its patented technology. Southbank's progress thus far is very encouraging. The Company hopes to provide shareholders with a report of this progress in the near future.
