SAN JOSE, Calif. — TiVo Corporation (NASDAQ: TIVO) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Update On Strategic Alternatives To Maximize Value For Shareholders

The Company continues to explore all possible strategic alternatives to maximize value for our shareholders. As mentioned on our prior call, we believe there is strategic value in each of our product and IP businesses. We remain in various active discussions, but due to the unique nature of our business, the process is taking longer than we hoped. It is our intention to complete the strategic review process by no later than our fourth quarter and year-end 2018 earnings call. Significantly, the strategic review process is informing our view of TiVo’s growth strategy which we will discuss on our earnings call.
