GTT Group, Inc. Releases December 2015 Patent Transaction Market Outlook Including the Q4 2014 Patent Market Index

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction advisory services, releases the Q4 2014 Patent Market Index and Patent Licensing Index in the January 2015 Patent Transaction Market Report.

The Q4 2014 PMI™ gained 3.4 points to close 2014 at 111.6, slightly above the average for the past two years and within the normalized trend forecasted by GTT Group. The Q4 2014 PLI also remained within expected average levels after the record rise recorded in the Q2 period.

“The Q4 2014 gain is less volatile than the previous three quarters, as expected”, stated Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “Our expectation moving into Q1 2015 is flat or possibly a moderate uptick reflecting historical yearend recording backlogs that inflate Q1 assignment recordings.”

In January 2015, GTT Group publishes the 2015 Winter Report: Patent Value, with a focus on recent events that are impacting patent value. The 2014 Annual Deal Review will become available in February 2015, reviewing the overall trends of 2014 and the 2014 deal leaders.

Intellectual Ventures led the Most Active Deal Makers list for the third quarter in a row, followed by Apple Corporation, Intellectual Discovery, RPX, and Acacia.
