June 16 (Reuters) - Canadian patent licensing firm Mosaid Technologies’ fourth-quarter results topped market estimates, helped by strength in its wireless patents segment, but it forecast a softer first-quarter profit.
The Ontario-based company expects first-quarter pro forma earnings of 43-48 Canadian cents a share on revenue of C$17.5-19.8 million.
The company expects pro forma net income of C$2-2.12 per share in 2012, compared with C$2.89 a share, a year ago.
During February-April, Mosaid earned C$5.9 million, or 49 Canadian cents, compared with C$8 million, or 69 Canadian cents a share, a year ago.
On a pro forma basis, the company earned 60 Canadian cents a share in the fourth quarter, topping analysts’ estimates of 55 Canadian cents a share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Quarterly revenue rose 10 percent to C$21.9 million, above market estimates of C$20.8 million.
Separately, the company said the U.S. International Trade Commission had voted to begin an investigation of certain Cisco products based on complaints filed by Mosaid in May.
