14:41 EDTIMI, TOSYY, SNDKIntermolecular surges after SanDisk, Toshiba license memory IP
Shares of semiconductor and clean-energy technology company Intermolecular (IMI) are on the rise after the company announced that SanDisk (SNDK) and Toshiba (TOSYY) have jointly elected to take an exclusive license to Intermolecular's developed intellectual property, or IP. WHAT'S NEW: Intermolecular announced that SanDisk and Toshiba have jointly elected to take an exclusive license, in a limited field, to Intermolecular's rights in the IP developed under a collaborative development program, as well as Intermolecular's background intellectual property. The related technologies have been developed for next-generation memory. The companies' CDP with Intermolecular, specifically targeted at developing certain memory products, materials, processes and device technologies, was concluded on March 15. Under the terms of the exclusive license, SanDisk and Toshiba will prepay non-refundable royalties in quarterly installments over a predetermined period. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On February 27, Intermolecular first reported that development activity related to the collaborative development program agreement with both SanDisk and Toshiba reached a conclusion. The company's CEO Dave Lazovsky said, "The objective of the CDP was to prepare certain memory technology for future production, and we are proud to have worked with SanDisk and Toshiba over the last four years to achieve the goal of our collaboration. We believe that we have helped them develop such memory technology with the potential to be the industry leader in non-volatile memory capability." ANALYST REACTION: Research firm Pacific Crest commented that the strength in Intermolecular shares on the news has been overdone. The firm added that it does not expect the license payments to ramp for 5 years. PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, shares of Intermolecular rose 79c, or about 35%, to $3.06.
