Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group) Releases Patent Transaction Market Report including August Market Outlook and Q1 2012 Patent Market Index (PMI)

The Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), Q1 2012 PMI continues a two-year growth trend, reaching a new high of 107.0 in the first quarter of 2012. This new high represents eight quarters of consistent growth and a significant rise from the bottom low of 45.5 in Q1 2009.

“This 5.5 point increase over Q4 2011 shows strength across the sectors we measure and reflects transaction activity from the prior year. There are many individual small and medium sized transactions and a small number of transactions in excess of 100 assets per transaction,” commented Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “We expect transaction activity will continue within a 10 to 15 point fluctuation in the PMI through the second half of 2012.”
