Rambus Inc. (RMBS) raised its fourth-quarter revenue guidance, two weeks after reaching a five-year patent license agreement with Broadcom Corp. (BRCM) that settles all outstanding claims between the two companies.

Rambus, which licenses patented technology used to accelerate the performance of memory chips, now expects fourth-quarter revenue of about $83 million, up from its prior forecast of $66 million to $71 million.

Shares recently were trading 8.5% higher at $8.19 premarket. The stock has fallen 63% over the past 12 months.

Terms of last month's deal, which covers serial links on Broadcom's integrated circuits, weren't disclosed. But Rambus's stock began to recover after a drop in November when a California jury ruled against the company in a separate antitrust case it had brought against Micron Technology Inc. (MU) and Hynix Semiconductor Inc. (HXSCF, 000660.SE).

In October, Rambus said it swung to a third-quarter profit on sharply higher royalties revenue and contract revenue.
