    -- Infringement case against LG moved from middle district of Florida to district of New Jersey in July 2017.

    -- German infringement cases against LG and Apple for Qualcomm chip-based devices awaiting a validity decision from Federal Patent Court in Munich.

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We made tremendous progress this quarter with the development of new wireless connectivity choices for both consumers and small business users alike. We are very excited to launch our Milo Wi-Fi systems with pre-orders available through our new Web Store beginning August 16th and through Amazon shortly thereafter. With its enhanced Wi-Fi capability available at affordable price points, we believe Milo will have broad appeal to consumers and small office users, resulting in meaningful product revenue growth the balance of this year, particularly during the holiday season. We also announced the introduction of the PV6870, a highly integrated complete Wi-Fi system-on-chip that delivers a combination of flexibility and features at an attractive cost and small size. These new products serve as foundation for the future development and growth of our product strategy."

Mr. Parker continued, "Our patent enforcement efforts are ongoing and we firmly believe that maintaining the course on these enforcement actions will ultimately result in valuable asset monetization for ParkerVision."

Second Quarter and First Half Financial Results

  • GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $3.7 million, or $0.21 per common share, compared to an $8.4 million GAAP net loss, or $0.72 per common share, for the second quarter of 2016.

  • Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2017, which excluded the effects of share-based compensation expense and changes in fair value of the contingent repayment obligation, was $3.2 million, or $0.18 per common share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $6.1 million, or $0.52 per common share, for the second quarter of 2016. The $2.9 million decrease in non-GAAP net loss was primarily attributable to lower litigation expenses, partially offset by increases in marketing costs for the Company's new products.

  • GAAP net loss for the first half of 2017 was $8.5 million, or $0.52 per common share, compared to a $13.5 million GAAP net loss, or $1.17 per common share, for the first half of 2016.

  • Non-GAAP net loss for the first half of 2017, which excluded the effects of share-based compensation expense and changes in fair value of the contingent repayment obligation, was $7.5 million, or $0.46 per common share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $11.1 million, or $0.96 per common share, for the second half of 2016. The $3.6 million decline in non-GAAP net loss was primarily attributable to lower litigation expenses, partially offset by increases in product development and marketing costs.

  • At June 30, 2017, the Company has $2.9 million in cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities.

  • On August 14, 2017, the Company entered into an At Market Issuance Sales Agreement with FBR Capital Markets & Co. for the sale of shares of the Company's common stock, from time to time, up to an aggregate of approximately $4.4 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures that Supplement GAAP Measures

We use both generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and non-GAAP financial measures for assessing our operating performance. The non-GAAP measures we use include Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss per Share. These non-GAAP measures exclude the effect on net loss and net loss per share of (i) changes in fair value of our contingent payment obligation and (ii) share-based compensation expense. We consider these non-GAAP measures to provide relevant supplemental information to assist investors in better understanding our operating results. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, follow (in thousands except for per share amounts):
