GTT Releases Q4 2009 Patent Market Index (PMI)

Portland, Oregon (April 29, 2010) – Today Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT), the world leader in patent asset analysis and monetization services, releases the Q4 2009 Patent Market Index (PMI), an index tracking patent transaction activity and trends in the patent marketplace.

The Q4 2009 PMI demonstrates continued stabilization of the patent market with continued quarter on quarter growth. The PMI still tracks below the highs of 2007 and is slightly lower year on year. But, the Q4 2009 PMI is much improved from the low of Q1 2009.

“Recovery is being fueled by mobile broadband infrastructure, devices, and applications,” says Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT. “The PMI should continue this upward trend for the first half 2010, particularly in the 2nd Quarter.”

The PMI was developed using GTT proprietary tools to provide realistic market outlooks to GTT clients. These market outlooks include information on market activity and trending key statistics for determining current asset value and best use scenarios. These tools and the applied data provide GTT with the information to guide clients concerning the appropriate use of patent assets.
