EAST PALO ALTO, Calif., May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Finjan Holdings, Inc.

Additional updates regarding Finjan’s operating subsidiaries and investments are also highlighted and will be discussed during the conference call to be held on May 8th at 1:30 p.m. PT/4:30 p.m. ET.
“With a recent settlement, several additional IPR denials challenging our patents, and a number of positive claim construction orders, this offset a quiet first quarter where we had no new deals to announce,” said Phil Hartstein, President and CEO of Finjan. “With the Zscaler litigation behind us, we can now re-focus our efforts on the pursuit of other licensees and defendants. As we look ahead, we remain focused on monetizing our patent portfolio while exploring possible partnerships or acquisitions to build upon our growth opportunities ahead and ultimately drive additional value for our shareholders.”
