Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. has signed a License and Cooperation Agreement and a related Supply Agreement (collectively known as the Agreements), effective March 31, 2018, with Colorcon, Inc. for the use of Applied DNA's SigNature® molecular tags in Colorcon's product offerings and access to the Company's associated authentication technologies. These Agreements follow the memorandum of understanding (MOU) announced on December 18, 2017. Under the terms of the Agreements, Applied DNA grants Colorcon exclusive worldwide right to use the Company's molecular tags and associated authentication technologies in film coatings for solid oral dosage form applications, for which Colorcon is the largest global supplier, and non-exclusive rights to use the Company's technologies in inks and colorants for SOD applications. Pursuant to the Agreements, Applied DNA will supply taggant and authentication materials to Colorcon in exchange for long-term royalties on the sale of Colorcon products incorporating the Company's molecular tags and on the sale of authentication services related thereto. Further, the first of two milestone payments is payable to Applied DNA with the signing of the Agreements. The Company will receive the second milestone payment upon initial approval by a regulatory authority for application in a SOD pharmaceutical or nutraceutical product application. The Agreements generally expire on the later of October 1, 2032 or the last expiration date of any patent licensed pursuant to the Agreements.
