Press Release: InterDigital Makes Binding Offer to Acquire Technicolor’s Research & Innovation Unit


WILMINGTON, Del., Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC), a mobile technology research and development company, today announced that it has made a binding offer to acquire the award-winning Research & Innovation (R&I) unit of Technicolor SA (Euronext Paris: TCH) (OTCQX: TCLRY), a worldwide technology leader in the media and entertainment sector. Upon completion of the transaction, InterDigital would become an unquestioned leader in both wireless and video research, with R&D-backed portfolios addressing the mobile, consumer electronics, IoT, and other markets.

Technicolor’s R&I team includes leaders in fundamental standards like HEVC, ATSC 3.0 and other video coding technologies. Like InterDigital Labs, R&I also enjoys partnerships and collaboration with world-class universities and researchers around the world.“Acquiring R&I is a decisive step in the creation of InterDigital’s video R&D and licensing business, which began with the acquisition of Technicolor’s licensing business last year. With this transaction, InterDigital creates an extraordinarily powerful research engine that will deliver fundamental innovation into two major markets: the wireless market, our longtime leadership area, and the video, display and consumer electronics market, a market with roughly the same revenue potential as the wireless market and which is a greenfield opport...
