u-blox seeks fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) licensing terms
from Sisvel International


Thalwil, Switzerland - March 17, 2020 - u-blox (SIX:UBXN, OTC:UBLXF), a
global provider of leading positioning and wireless communication
technologies, today announced that it has filed a lawsuit against Sisvel in
the United States District Court for the Southern District of California in
order to obtain a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND) license
from Sisvel International S.A. and Sisvel U.S., Inc.'s standard essential
patents (SEPs) used in 2G, 3G and 4G cellular communications.

"u-blox respects the intellectual property rights of others and has always
been and continues to be a willing licensee to standard essential patents
(SEPs)," said Thomas Seiler, CEO of u-blox. "We have therefore asked a court
to review and determine the FRAND rate for the patents held or managed by
Sisvel International S.A.. u-blox is a committed licensee for the benefit of
our customers and we believe that our willingness to license also positively
distinguishes u-blox within the module industry. "
