Los Angeles, California, April 4, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Crown Electrokinetics Corp. (NASDAQ: RCDR) (“Crown” or the “Company”), a leading smart glass technology company, today announced that the Company has received a report from a third-party intellectual property assessment company “IP Professional”) providing an assessment of Crown’s intellectual property (IP) and trade secrets underlying Crown’s technology.

Crown’s electrokinetic film technology can be applied to several product categories, including applications in the commercial building, residential and transportation sectors. This IP assessment, however, specifically analyzed Crown’s technology as deployed in the US office market only. If Crown were to assess its IP value in other product categories or other geographic markets, Crown’s IP value would still be over $94.4 million.

In April 2015, Hewlett Packard sold certain assets which became the basis for the creation of Crown Electrokinetics, including its initial intellectual property. The Company continued to grow its patent and trade secret assets, inventing and developing technologies and processes and, in some cases, acquiring IP on the open market.

Intellectual property assets that have been valued include Crown patents, associated trade secrets and know-how. The valuation conclusions in the private report are based on accepted practices using standards of factual analysis, intellectual property analysis, fair market value (FMV) and investment value (IV). The third-party review company used data provided by Crown, as well as public information and industry knowledge of intellectual property licensing. Additionally, the IP professional has considered historical costs as well as expected future revenues with respect to the assets.

Crown’s IP valuation indicated a combined fair market value (FMV) of the patents and trade secrets of $94.4 million. Rolling out Crown’s DynamicTint™ to multiple customers will be a critical step in achieving the company’s goals for intellectual property adoption.

Crown CEO Doug Croxall said, “The third-party intellectual property valuation report reaffirms to our shareholders the substantial value of the company’s underlying assets and intellectual property rights. Our business opportunity is built on data volumes and should provide commercial viability for financial parties to advance. All Crown employees are eager to realize the value of our intellectual property and to continue to innovate additional intellectual property that will continue to create value for shareholders. »
