Note 5 – License Agreements
The Company enters into two types of licensing agreements and in both types, the Company earns revenue on the initial license fees. Under the technology agreements, the Company earns processing and storage royalties from the affiliates that process in their own facility. Under the marketing agreements, the Company earns processing and storage revenues from affiliates that store specimens in the Company’s facility in Oldsmar, Florida.
The Company has entered into a definitive License and Royalty Agreement with Asia Cryo-Cell Private Limited to establish and market its umbilical cord blood program in India.
The Company has entered into definitive License and Royalty Agreements with Asia Cryo-Cell Private Limited and
S-Evans Bio-Sciences, Inc. to establish and market its menstrual stem cell program in India and China, respectively.
The Company previously had a License and Royalty Agreement with Cryo-Cell de Mexico (“Mexico”) and on August 19, 2011, the Company received notification from Mexico that they were terminating the license agreement effective immediately due to an alleged breach of the license agreement. On October 17, 2011, the Company and Mexico entered into an amendment to the license agreement whereby the termination has been revoked and Mexico would pay the Company $1,863,000 in 37 monthly installments of $50,000 beginning on October 17, 2011 with a final payment of $13,000. The amendment is expected to result in a reduction of licensee income in future periods. In December 2013, Mexico paid the balance due of $563,000 in full, which is reflected in the consolidated statement of operations as of February 28, 2014 as licensee and interest income. Mexico has no other continuing obligations to the Company for royalties or other license payments and the agreement is terminated.
The Company has definitive license agreements to market the Company’s umbilical cord blood stem cell programs in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Pakistan. In October 2012, the Company sent a notice of termination to the Company’s Venezuelan affiliate for failure to meet its payment obligation in accordance with the contract. Subsequent to the notice of termination, payment was received for outstanding processing and storage fees due from Venezuela. The Company is in the process of discussing a new agreement. The Company continues to accept umbilical cord blood stem cell specimens to be processed and stored during the negotiations. In December 2012, the Company sent a notice of termination to the Company’s affiliate in Ecuador for failure to meet its payment obligation in accordance with the contract. Subsequent to the notice of termination, payment was received for outstanding processing and storage fees due from Ecuador. In August 2013, the Company was notified that its affiliate in Ecuador was closed by the National Institute of Organic Donation (INDOT). As a result, the Company recorded an allowance for uncollectible receivables for the $150,000 processing and storage fee receivable due from Ecuador in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company began to bill the Ecuadorian clients directly for cord blood specimens that are stored at the Company’s facility in Oldsmar, Florida.
The following table details the initial license fees for the technology and marketing agreements and processing and storage royalties earned for the technology agreements for the three months ended February 28, 2015 and February 28, 2014. The initial license fees and processing and storage royalties are reflected in licensee income in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.
