LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 6, 2016) - GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO), an IoT platform in the personal location wearable and wandering assistive technology business, announced today signing a definitive agreement with Inventergy Innovations, LLC ("Inventergy"), a subsidiary of Inventergy Global, Inc., a Silicon Valley-based intellectual property company, led by IP industry veteran and former Hewlett-Packard executive, Joe Beyers, to spearhead their monetization efforts for its personal wireless location-based services IP assets. Both companies previously announced their letter of intent on May 10, 2016 and as part of the final agreement, Inventergy will have exclusive rights to license or sell three GTX patents - US 8,154,401, US 8,760,286, and US 9,219,978, commonly referred to as the "Comm. Protocol" or "286" Family. In exchange for the exclusive rights to sell or license these 3 patents, Inventergy will pay GTX Corp an advance against future income, in cash and INVT stock with a first payment on June 30th and then scheduled payments throughout the rest of 2016 and 2017.
Patrick Bertagna, GTX Corp Chairman and CEO, stated, "We have been filing patents for over a decade including these Comm Protocols which were filed back in 2007 and 2008 before Apple and Samsung began selling GPS enabled Smartphones. This is a major turning point and significant milestone for GTX Corp. It validates our IP strategy and our ability to quickly execute on a monetization path to fuel our growth by leveraging our largest asset. We expect this IP deal to be the first of more to come in the future as we start exploring other monetization strategies with some of the other patents in our portfolio. The Inventergy team has been exceptional to work with and we look forward to a long lasting and prosperous relationship with them."
Joe Beyers, CEO of Inventergy, said, "GTX patents are applicable to remotely configurable tracking and location devices including smartphones and other GPS based products that are in use today and collectively represents a very sizable addressable market. We believe this partnership will allow us to build a successful monetization program around these assets."
The agreement will still allow GTX to fully utilize these patents in its core business while providing Inventergy the ability to go license or sell the 3 patents and do a 45%/55% revenue share on all future income after the initial advance.
