 SIX JAPANESE COMPANIES, INCLUDING SONY, SHARP AND NEC,
 LICENSE GILBERT HYATT'S MICROCOMPUTER AND LIQUID CRYSTAL PATENTS
 LA PALMA, Calif., Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Gilbert P. Hyatt, the holder of the single-chip microcomputer patent, granted in July 1990, today announced the signing of license agreements with six Japanese electronics manufacturers, including Sony, Sharp and NEC for two portfolios of his U.S. patents relating to microcomputers and liquid crystal display devices (LCDs). Three of the companies were not identified.
 "Licensing of my two patent portfolios to these companies follows more than six months of negotiations," said Hyatt. "I am using the proceeds from these licenses to fund continuing research and development on new technologies."
 Mahr Leonard Management Co. (MLMC) of Dallas negotiated these six license agreements for Hyatt.
 Last fall, North American Philips Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Philips Electronics of the Netherlands, announced a license agreement with Hyatt for his computer and LCD patent portfolios. As part of that earlier


agreement, Philips will assist Hyatt in further efforts to license his two U.S. patent portfolios worldwide.
 Al Tamoshunas, vice president of North American Philips Corp., said: "Philips is presently negotiating with other companies in the United States, Japan and Europe for licenses on Hyatt's computer and LCD patent portfolios. We expect to achieve wide-scale licensing of these patent portfolios."
 Hyatt, 53, resides in Las Vegas, and is actively involved in high technology research and development as a self-employed scientist, engineer and entrepreneur. He was born in Forest Hills, Queens, N.Y. He received his masters of science in electronic engineering (MSEE) degree from the University of Southern California and his BSEE degree from the University of California, Berkeley.
