after read mike’s post here, I tried to came up with my own crunching, so here it is:
(This is only for GOOG, which is the only part in question)
From google’s IR website, I’m taking “revenues” from Q4’11, and “Google revenues” from Q1’12, Q2’12 and Q3’12 to come up with revenue base:
10584+10645+10964+11526 = 43719M
Google’s revenue from international source is: 53%, 54%, 53%, 50% respectively, I’ll use 53% here. so Google’s US revenue = 43719M*47%=20547.93M
Vringo’s claim is 3.5% of 20% of Google’s US revenue, so the claimed damage should be:
20547.93M*20%*3.5% = 143.83551M
And, if we apply that 35% like every other defendant, you get:
143.83551M*35% = 50.3424285M
So yeah, it’s not like what Mike claimed, 158M, but it’s still much higher than the 15.8M in the verdict. Basically I don’t quite get understand where Mike came up with the revenue base, my guess would be that he considered global revenue when only US revenue should be considered.
Please let me know if you have any comments/opinions.
