(Nasdaq NMS: PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications today announced its financial results for the first quarter, ended March 31, 2005. The company's financial results exclude ParkerVision's broadcast video division, which was sold in its entirety during the second quarter of 2004.

The company's reported net product revenues for the first quarter of 2005 were $171,982 compared to $45,775 in the prior year's period and the reported net loss for the quarter was $5,504,241, or $0.30 per basic and diluted share, compared to $5,362,261, or $0.30 per basic and diluted share in the first quarter in 2004.

ParkerVision Chairman and CEO, Jeffrey Parker commented "The most significant accomplishments for the company this past quarter include the announcement of our new RF power amplifier technology which we believe opens up significant OEM opportunities for the company. To achieve the best and most prudent use of our capital we will continue to maintain a narrow distribution channel at retail while concentrating on converting OEM indications of interest into meaningful business for our company. Our goal for the wireless technologies that we've developed is to achieve the broadest adoption of our technology, both with our transceivers and power amplifiers."
