1. Organization
Inventergy Global, Inc. (“Inventergy,” “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is an intellectual property (“IP”) investment and licensing company that works with technology-leading corporations in attaining greater value from their IP assets in support of their business objectives and corporate brands. Our original monetization and licensing business was enhanced in April 2016, when the Company formed Inventergy Innovations, LLC (“Inventergy Innovations”) as a majority-owned subsidiary of the Company. The Company has two distinct business execution approaches to achieve monetization of IP:
Inventergy Innovations: Commercialization of a broad range of intellectual assets and innovations through which Inventergy Innovations obtains exclusive rights to IP owned by its partners, and
Patent Residual Interest Program (“PRIP”): Monetization through enforcement of the 740 telecommunications patents previously owned by the Company (“the Patents”) which were transferred to INVT SPE LLC (“INVT SPE”) in April 2017 as more fully explained in Note 3.
In addition, the Company has an access control and security product/service business which provides royalty revenue based on the sale of such products under a licensing agreement (“ECS” or “the ECS business”).
The Company’s two core strategies are to (1) commercialize IP by establishing partnerships with companies that have developed or acquired IP with potential applications in large, growing markets, and (2) assist the Managing Member of INVT SPE as needed with the monetization efforts for the Patents under the PRIP, sharing in the proceeds of such efforts after monetization costs and other contractual and priority payments are covered.
Inventergy, Inc. was initially organized as a Delaware limited liability company under the name Silicon Turbine Systems, LLC in January 2012. It subsequently changed its name to Inventergy, LLC in March 2012 and it was converted from a limited liability company into a Delaware corporation in February 2013. On June 6, 2014, a subsidiary of eOn Communications Corporation (“eOn”) merged with and into Inventergy, Inc. (the “Merger”). As a result of the Merger, eOn changed its name to “Inventergy Global, Inc.” The Company is headquartered in Cupertino, California.
The Company operates in a single industry segment.
