“Mario is an outstanding addition to the Pendrell licensing team,” commented Ben Wolff, chief executive officer of Pendrell. “He has a proven track record, having led some of the most significant patent licensing transactions in recent years. Mario joins us at a time that our portfolio has grown to more than 1,500 patents covering digital rights management technologies invented by ContentGuard, 3G and 4G wireless, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, mobile operating systems, e-commerce, security and other technologies. He will play a key role in accelerating and expanding our licensing programs.”

“Pendrell is uniquely positioned as a fully integrated IP investment and advisory firm,” adds Mr. Obeidat. “I think Pendrell’s approach to partnering with innovative technology and media companies to develop, commercialize and enhance the value of IP by making it available on fair, reasonable and predictable terms is a winning formula. I am enthusiastic about joining the Pendrell team to pursue the myriad of opportunities that are available in the rapidly evolving IP industry.”

Mr. Obeidat holds a bachelors degree from Temple University and a master’s degree in electrical engineering and telecommunications from Villanova University. He will be based in the Company’s Kirkland, Washington office.
