11:11 EDTMRVL, QCOMMarvell rises after announcing plans to appeal patent decision
Shares of fabless semiconductor provider Marvell Technology (MRVL) are higher this morning after the company said it will appeal a district judge's order for the company to pay nearly $1.54B for breaching two hard disk drive patents held by Carnegie Mellon University. WHAT'S NEW: The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania yesterday rejected Marvell's motion to reduce a patent infringement jury award against it and added more than $366M to Carnegie Mellon University’s award, bringing it to $1.54B. That amount is higher than the $1.17B that a jury previously awarded CMU, but the judge rejected CMU's motion for an injunction which would block Marvell from selling chips that the jury found to be infringing. The judge also rejected CMU's demand for about $326M in pre-judgment interest and denied CMU’s bid for enhanced damages at a higher rate. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Marvell intends to appeal to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals. Marvell and Marvell Semiconductor, its U.S. subsidiary, intend to argue to the Federal Circuit "that the patents at issue are invalid, that even if valid, Marvell did not infringe, and that the Court erred both in its calculation of the royalty rate and in its novel application of that rate to chips manufactured, sold, and used abroad." Marvell said it does not expect to record a liability on its financial statements and believes a material loss is not probable. ANALYST REACTION: MKM Partners thinks the ruling removes a major overhang on Marvell's stock. Additionally, the firm says concerns about competition Marvell is facing from Qualcomm (QCOM) and Mediatek are "overdone." MKM, which said it believes Marvell's revenue for the full year will beat the current consensus outlook, has a Buy rating and $19 price target on Marvell shares. PRICE ACTION: Marvell Technology shares are up 55c, or 3.5%, to $16.30 in late-morning trading.
