Madrid, 5 September - The US authorities have granted the Spanish listed company Lleida.net (OTC.US) (ALLLN.PA) (LLN.MA) a new patent for its platform and method of certifying an electronic notification for electronic identification and trust services under the EIDAS legislation.
The patent, which has US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) number 11750592, is valid for 20 years and is estimated to generate additional SaaS revenues for the company over its lifetime in the order of EUR 10 million.
To date, the company, founded by Sisco Sapena in 1995, has received up to seven patents for its developments in certified electronic signature, notification and contracting.
