Richard Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Amphion, said: “We were pleased to see DataTern’s intellectual property licensing programme get back on track in May and with these four new license agreements we have surpassed our plan for the first half year. Amphion’s eight Partner Companies are all built on innovative and important intellectual property foundations and between them they own or control over 200 separately identified pieces of intellectual property. This represents a rich reservoir of opportunity to replicate the success of our first programme and build on the expertise we have developed in this field.”
