Could be. But they might be trying to avoid a buyout, too.

SGI can raise capital only because it has an IP portfolio, which in theory is as good as any other asset. Except that when the people using your IP won't take a license, you have to sue them or admit that you really don't have the assets you've been borrowing against. So the "action" SGI is looking for might just be continued access to capital.
