Guru Investment Theses on InterDigital Inc

FPA Capital Fund Comments on Interdigital - Oct 13, 2016

As value managers, we seek to increase the size of our positions when the market disagrees with our long-term view, and do the opposite when the market ceases to provide us with an adequate margin of safety. We don’t always get it right, but InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC) epitomizes such behavior. When the market failed to recognize IDCC’s normalized earnings power, we reviewed our thesis, worked through our upside/downside case, and then took action by substantially increasing our position. Finally, this year, the seeds blossomed and we have substantially reduced our position.

FPA Capital Comments on InterDigital - May 09, 2016

There has been—and will continue to be—tremendous growth in wireless communication. But it’s hard to predict the future market share of any individual company. Nokia and Ericsson were the major mobile phone players 15 to 20 years ago. Today, their phones are industry footnotes, and Apple and Samsung dominate. InterDigital (NASDAQ:IDCC) is a company that will allow us to participate in this growth without betting on which smart phone, tablet, or e-reader companies will hold the largest market share in the future. InterDigital’s role is to sell critical technology across the wireless industry. To make sure its technology maintains a vital place inside networks and devices, the company employs 175 engineers who work on new inventions and patents every day. To date, they have obtained or applied for about 20,000 patents, a testament to InterDigital’s innovative strength. The company also works with Standard Development Organizations to incorporate its technology into the standards that ensure that a Samsung Galaxy on Verizon’s network can communicate with an iPhone with service from China Telecom.

We initiated a small position in 2011 and had a chance to increase our ownership substantially in 2012, when InterDigital had lawsuits pending that claimed large industry players owed the company royalties related to the deployment of 4G/LTE technology. They were similar to the lawsuits that followed the rollout of 2G and 3G wireless technologies. In all these cases, the users of the technology waited for the lawsuits to run their course before agreeing on a licensing rate. Our research suggested that there was no doubt that everyone was using their technology. During this downturn, the company managed its balance sheet extremely well and continued to generate cash. It decreased the share count from 45 million at the end of 2010 to 36 million today. Yet net cash still makes up almost 25% of the company’s market capitalization. InterDigital’s goal is to reach $600 million of revenue. At that time, the company could be able to generate more than $7 cash earnings.

In summary, we believe that the world will use more smart phones and tablets going forward, but we don’t know who the top sellers will be. We’ve decided not to try to predict that. We’d rather invest in a company that supplies its technology to all the players. In short: We see InterDigital as a backdoor way to participate in the growth of mobile communications.

FPA Capital Fund Comments on InterDigital Inc - Feb 19, 2015

Looking beyond the poor performance of the energy stocks in the quarter and consistent with our investment strategy, we trimmed back two companies, Apollo Education (APOL) and InterDigital (IDCC). InterDigital creates and designs different wireless technologies and then licenses those patents to hardware manufacturers. Apollo provides on-line educational services and grants Bachelor and post- graduate degrees through its For-profit schools.

Moving on to IDCC (IDCC), there has been tremendous growth in wireless communications and the growth is expected to continue. Many years ago, Nokia and Ericsson were the major players in the industry. Today, their phones are nowhere to be found and Apple and Samsung dominate. It is hard to predict future market share of any individual company but it is also hard to disagree with the growth of wireless communication. InterDigital is a company that will allow us to participate in this growth without taking sides on which smart phone, tablet, or e-reader companies will hold the largest market share in the future. The company has been around since the early 70s. It is not a patent troll but, rather, a group of 175 engineers that work on new inventions every day. To date, they have obtained or applied for approximately 20,000 patents. They work with Standard Development Organizations to incorporate their technology into the standards.

We had an opportunity to invest in this company because of the prolific litigation that takes place in this industry. IDCC had a number of lawsuits pending against some of the largest players in the industry such as Nokia, LG, ZTE, and Samsung because these companies were not paying royalties to InterDigital. While the company has had some recent legal setbacks with the International Trade Commission, IDCC generally has ultimately prevailed in prior cases with the Federal Circuit Court and we expect this to occur in the current cases.

Recently, in June 2014, the largest unlicensed company (Samsung) signed a 10-year deal with InterDigital. In Q4’14, the market started paying attention to InterDigital’s success with Samsung and its resulting cash flow generation abilities. Recall that IDCC was our worst performing investment in 2013. We increased our position 15% that year and by more than 8% in 2014 as the stock further weakened. Given where IDCC traded during the recent quarter, we trimmed roughly 15% of our position.
