GTT Group, Inc Releases July 2013 Patent Transaction Market Outlook & Q1 2013 Patent Market Index

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction advisory services, announces the Q1 2013 Patent Market Index and July 2013 Patent Transaction Market Report. The Q1 2013 PMI rose to 95.3 from the previous quarter index of 92.4, an increase of 2.9 index points.

“The PMI reflects current market stability and we expect the index to remain in the 90s index range over the next few quarters,“ commented Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “We do not believe that patent reform legislation aimed at patent nuisance litigation and current FTC review of corporate privateering initiatives will negatively impact the secondary marketplace, particularly as it relates to high quality assets.”

Most Active Deal Makers for the quarter include Intellectual Venture Fund 83 LLC and Rickstar Bidco LP, along with Facebook, Intel, Apple, and Google.
