We believe the Q1 2014 PMI™ increase meets our Q4 2013 expectation for a rise in both transfers and the index itself.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction advisory services, announces the Q1 2014 Patent Market Index and July 2014 Patent Transaction Market Report. The Patent Market Index (PMI™) tracks patent transaction activity and patent marketplace trends, and is reported quarterly in the Patent Transaction Market Report (PTMR).
The Q1 2014 PMI™ increased to 118.5, the most significant increase in three years. “We believe the Q1 2014 PMI™ increase meets our Q4 2013 expectation for a rise in both transfers and the index itself,” explains Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “This significant increase in the PMI™ represents the effects of a combination of the robust patent transaction activity and recording lags experienced during the second half of 2013.”
Samsung led the list of Most Active Deal Makers for the third quarter in a row. Active deal makers also included Google Inc., Intel Corporation, RPX Corporation, and Qualcomm.
