LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/14 -- MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF) ("MMR" or the "Company") today announced that it projects first quarter 2014 revenue from all sources to be among the highest in the Company's history driven by licensing and Personal Health Record sales. The Company also announced that all licensing and sales agreements up for renewal to date in 2014 have been renewed for at least another year. Much of the revenue that has already been received by the Company is a result of licensing from the Company's MyMedicalRecords, Inc. patent portfolio. MMR also projects significantly increased revenues starting in the second quarter of 2014 from retailer and direct-to-consumer sales help driven by increasing interest in maintaining a Personal Health Record as a result of millions spent by the government on advertising HealthCare.gov.
Additionally, the Company forecasts continued revenue from its biotechnology assets based on the latest information available to the Company pursuant to the terms of its thirteen million dollar biotech licensing agreement, which is the subject of an 8-K filed on December 21, 2010. The Company also has begun entering into agreements with licensed medical cannabis dispensaries to sell Personal Health Records direct to consumers at retail.
MyMedicalRecords, Inc. has also filed patent infringement complaints against Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc., Jardogs, Quest Diagnostics, Inc. and WebMD for infringement of two of its ten U.S. health IT patents: U.S. Patent No. 8,301,466 and U.S. Patent No. 8,498,883. MMR's patent portfolio also includes U.S. Patent Nos. 8,121,855; 8,117,045; 8,117,646; 8,321,240; 8,352,287; 8,352,288; 8,626,532 and 8,645,161, as well as numerous pending applications. MMR also owns additional HIT patents in 11 other countries or regional territories of commercial interest including Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Mexico, Japan, Canada, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Israel and Europe. MMR is also continuing licensing talks with EMR vendors and others in the United States, Australia and Israel regarding licensing and sales of its health IT patents, products and services.
