Singapore grants Lleida.net a new patent
Madrid, 12 August - The dual listed technology company Lleida.net (BME:LLN; EPA:ALLLN) has received a new patent from the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore, the agency in the Asian country in charge of administering patents and trademarks.
The new patent corresponds to the method for the certification of an electronic email containing a qualified electronic signature on the part of a telecommunication's operator.
The method with qualified electronic signature has the advantage of maintaining the integrity of the qualified electronic signatures in the body of the email, which is not possible with traditional registered email methods.
Currently, the portfolio of patents granted to Lleida.net worldwide about eSignature methods amounts to 184.
The patent has been granted for a period of 20 years.
"Due to its position in Southeast Asia, the patent that Singapore has granted to Lleida.net is of special importance. Our position in the region is increasingly strong, and we will continue working to become an international industry leader," explained Sisco Sapena, CEO and founder of the company.
Last Monday, another patent was granted to Lleida.net, in this case by the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office, for its method for registering and certifying the receipt of email
As of today, more than 50 countries on five continents, including the United States, the European Union, China, Russia, India, Mexico, Japan, Colombia, Argentina, Peru, South Africa, Nigeria, Australia and New Zealand, have recognized its certified electronic notification and contracting methods with patents.
The company's patent portfolio, whose securities are traded on the Madrid Stock Exchange and Euronext Growth in Paris, is already one of the largest in the eSignature industry worldwide.
Lleida.net's methods are recognized as valid to certify legal notices in contracting processes by the authorities in about 70 countries.
With over a 400% increase in value so far this year, Lleida.net market cap exceeds 81 million euros.
The company recently announced its intention to go public in the next months in the New York market, specifically in the OTCQX segment of the OTC Markets.
For this purpose, the company's General Shareholders Meeting will meet in mid-September to vote and, if necessary, approve this new IPO.
