Acacia is sometimes referred to as a non-practicing entity because the company derives revenue from licenses and lawsuits rather than from building products. According to the company, it has returned over $705,000,000 to patent owners. The corporation creates a subsidiary company for each set of patents it enforces. Currently, 95% of the company's business involves partnering with inventors and patent holders. It currently has 180 known subsidiaries and 257 active cases as of September 2014, four of which are not through a subsidiary.
