CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 3, 2013) -


Times Three Wireless Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TTW) ("Times Three" or the "Company") announced today that it has entered into a letter of intent to purchase patents from Rockstar Consortium ("Rockstar"), a business owning more than 4,000 patents developed by technology pioneer Nortel Networks and acquired by Rockstar in 2011.

Times Three's proposed acquisition comprises 2 patents issued in the USA that relate to LCD and LED television display technology.

The letter of intent requires the Company to enter into a definitive purchase agreement which, on the closing of the transaction, will result in the issuance to Rockstar of up to $1.1 million in common shares priced at $0.11 per share (up to 10,000,000 common shares) and to pay to Rockstar a percentage share of net licensing proceeds generated by Times Three during the life of the subject patent portfolio. The Company will also make a cash payment to Rockstar upon the successful completion of the transaction. The remaining terms of the letter of intent are confidential.

The obligation of the Company to close the acquisition is subject to, among other things, its satisfactory completion of further due diligence over a 30 day period as well as the receipt of all regulatory and third party approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

"We are very pleased to enter into this agreement with Rockstar to purchase this valuable two-patent portfolio which relates to the large USA television market and we look forward to the further development of this important strategic relationship in the future," said William Middleton, Times Three's CEO.
