15:02 EDTROVIRovi issues statement in response to court ruling in Amazon case
The U.S. Court of Appeals issued its decision in Roviís (ROVI) patent infringement litigation against Amazon (AMZN). Rovi had sued Amazon for infringing the two patents at issue in the decision. The appeals court sided with Amazon and found that the District Courtís interpretation of the claims of the patents was correct and therefore Amazon did not infringe these patents. "We are disappointed by this decision," said Rovi executive VP Samir Armaly, worldwide intellectual property and licensing. "It should be noted that this decision relates to only two patents in our extensive portfolio. We believe that our portfolio is even more relevant to Amazon today and going-forward than when the present litigation began in early 2011. Since that time, Amazon has continued to expand its video and over-the-top offerings through new products like the recently announced Fire TV. As illustrated by various recent agreements, Roviís patent portfolio continues to be recognized by leading companies looking to deliver compelling video experiences across multiple screens. We plan to continue to pursue Amazon going-forward to take the necessary licenses under our patent portfolio, not only to protect our rights but also the rights of our existing licensees in this space."

16:52 EDTSHLMA. Schulman up over 6% to $38.61 following results, increased FY14 guidance
16:38 EDTSHLMA. Schulman raises FY14 adjusted EPS to $2.23-$2.28 from $2.08-$2.13
Consensus $2.16. Joseph M. Gingo, chairman, president and CEO, said, "Driven by the trend of our positive European results, the continuation of relatively stable raw material pricing and modest global economic growth, we have raised our expectations for 2014 adjusted net income to a range of $2.23-$2.28 per diluted share, which would represent an approximately 25% increase over the prior-year results using the high-end of this range."
16:36 EDTSHLMA. Schulman reports Q2 EPS ex-items 39c, consensus 33c
Reports Q2 revenue $588.51M, one estimate $575M. Bernard Rzepka, COO, stated, "I am very pleased that our European team has been able to capitalize on strengthening demand, especially in the automotive and electronics & electrical markets. In the Americas, I am encouraged that organic net sales in the region remained consistent with the prior year despite an 8.2% drop in organic volume and negative foreign currency headwinds in Latin America. Volume was, of course, impacted by the severe winter weather in the U.S., but also by the company's continuous strategy to reduce less-profitable commodity sales. In Asia Pacific, or APAC, the addition of our Perrite Group's Malaysian facility has led to significant growth and provides us with solid engineered plastics operations in Southeast Asia. Additionally, we are seeing organic growth across all product families in the region, as well as a stabilization of gross margins on a sequential basis. APAC is a key strategic market for us, and we are pleased with our progress in the region."
