Canada grants Lleida.net a new patent
Madrid, August 20th - The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) has just granted a new patent to Spanish technology services company Lleida.net (BME:LLN;EPA:ALLLN).
The patent, which is valid for 20 years, corresponds to its method for recording and certifying the reception of emails.
The method, developed by the founder and CEO of the company, Sisco Sapena, has already received respective patents from the authorities of the European Union, United States and different countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia.
'In our expansion process in North America, which should lead us to be listed in New York in the coming months, being recognized by the Canadian authorities is a key step in strengthening our international credibility,' said Sapena.
The system is now used by companies in the banking, insurance and supply sectors to demonstrate mail received from customers
It is also used by sports entities for rights auctions. Similarly, postal services in four countries in Africa and Latin America use it to build e-mail PO boxes to serve their citizen's communications needs.
Lleida.net has already been granted 185 patents worldwide on certification, notification, reception and online contracting methods.
The company's patent portfolio, whose titles are traded in the Madrid Stock Exchange and Euronext Growth in Paris, is already one of the largest in the eSignature industry worldwide.
Its methods are recognized as valid for certifying legal notices in contracting processes by the authorities of more than 75 countries.
After having grown over 500% so far this year, Lleida.net stock market value exceeded yesterday, for the first time, the mark of 100 million euros value.
The company recently announced its intention to go out to trade in the next months in the New York Stock Exchange, specifically in the OTCQX segment of the OTC Markets.
To this end, the company's General Shareholders' Meeting will meet in mid-September to vote and approve this new IPO.
