Investments in Affiliates


During 2006, the Company ceased recording equity in losses of Saneron once the investment balance was written down to the total amount of goodwill, as goodwill is not amortized. As of November 30, 2013 and 2012, the net Saneron investment, which consists solely of goodwill, is reflected on the consolidated balance sheets at $684,000. During 2013 and 2012, management reviewed the Saneron investment to determine if there were any indicators that would imply that the investment was impaired. Based on management’s review, there were no indicators of impairment and goodwill was not impaired during 2013 or 2012.

For the fiscal year ended November 30, 2013 and 2012, the Company recorded equity in losses of Saneron operations of approximately $154,000 and $155,000, respectively. Equity in losses of affiliate for the years ended November 30, 2013 and 2012 consists of compensation expense for stock and warrant awards that were granted by Saneron at below fair market value to certain employees, consultants and members of Saneron management who represent owners of Saneron and serve on its board of directors. The Company will continue to record equity in losses of affiliate related to stock compensation expense, which increases additional paid-in capital and does not affect the investment balance.

As of November 30, 2013 and 2012, the Company has classified the Company’s portion of the value of Company stock held by Saneron of approximately $485,000, within stockholders’ equity as treasury stock.


In October 2013, the Company entered into a Convertible Promissory Note Purchase Agreement with Saneron. Cryo-Cell will loan Saneron in quarterly payments an aggregate amount up to $300,000, subject to certain conditions. The initial loan amount is $150,000 to be paid in four quarterly installments of $37,500 per quarter. If after the initial loan amount, Saneron has made best efforts, satisfactory to Cryo-Cell in its sole discretion, to have started independently or via serving as a sponsor of a clinical trial related to its U-CORD-CELL™ program, then Cryo-Cell agrees to lend Saneron an additional $150,000 through a series of four additional quarterly payments of $37,500. Upon receipt of each quarterly payment, Saneron will deliver a convertible promissory note (“Note”) that matures five years from the date of the Note. Upon maturity of any Note, Saneron will have the option to repay all or a portion of the loan in cash or convert the outstanding principal and accrued interest under the applicable Note(s) into shares of Saneron common stock. The Company made the first initial quarterly payment of $37,500 in October 2013.
