Transmeta Corporation to Increase Focus on Intellectual Property Licensing in 2005

Transmeta Corporation, the leader in efficient computing, today announced that it will increase its business focus on the licensing of its intellectual property and advanced technologies in 2005. Transmeta also announced that it will complete a critical evaluation of the economics of its current business model of designing, developing and selling x86-compatible microprocessor products, including its Crusoe(R) and Efficeon(TM) families, in January 2005.

"Transmeta has spent a decade developing world class microprocessor technology, microprocessor products and related intellectual property," stated Matthew R. Perry, president and CEO, Transmeta Corporation. "By modifying our business model to focus more on our licensing opportunities, leveraging our substantial IP portfolio and our R&D capabilities, we would expect to reduce our cash needs substantially and to improve our results for our shareholders."

Over the last two years, Transmeta has worked to establish a revenue stream based upon the licensing of its proprietary technology and intellectual property. During 2004, Transmeta granted licenses to NEC Electronics and Fujitsu Limited to use Transmeta's proprietary LongRun2(TM) technologies for power management and transistor leakage control. Those licensing agreements include deliverable-based technology transfer fees, maintenance and service fees, and subsequent royalties on products incorporating the licensed technologies. Transmeta is engaged in active discussions with various industry leaders to license its advanced power management technologies in 2005. In addition, the company has entered into active discussions toward the potential licensing of other proprietary technologies, including its microprocessor designs.

The company's management is completing a critical review of its current business model, including an evaluation of its customer requirements and the economics and competitive conditions in the market for x86-compatible microprocessors. Transmeta is actively engaged in discussions regarding strategic alliance opportunities for leveraging the company's industry-leading microprocessor design and development capabilities to increase shareholder value. Transmeta has been working with Perseus Group LLC, a San Francisco-based investment banking firm, and other advisors, in that effort.

Transmeta management expects to complete its business model evaluation and planning with the company's Board of Directors in January 2005. The company presently expects to make an announcement and hold a conference call regarding its 2005 business model on January 21, 2005.
