NeuroVive announces settlement in dispute with CicloMulsion AG
Lund, Sweden, 16 December 2019, NeuroVive Pharmaceutical AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: NVP, OTCQX: NEVPF) announced today that it has fully and finally settled the dispute with CicloMulsion AG regarding certain pharmaceutical technology.
In 2004, NeuroVive entered into a License Agreement with CicloMulsion AG under which NeuroVive licensed the rights to use and develop products based on a certain pharmaceutical technology. In March 2013, CicloMulsion AG commenced an arbitration seeking declaratory relief aimed at establishing the company’s rights to royalties, which CicloMulsion AG claimed that NeuroVive was obliged to pay under the terms of the License Agreement. CicloMulsion AG also made other claims in relation to NeuroVive’s obligations under the License Agreement.
NeuroVive and CicloMulsion AG have now fully and finally settled the dispute. The settlement means that NeuroVive shall not make any payments to CicloMulsion for the claims made in the arbitration. The ownership of the technology shall remain with NeuroVive, who shall thus have exclusive rights thereto, and NeuroVive shall not be liable for any future royalties relating to the technology. The arbitration shall be terminated, and each party shall bear its own costs in the arbitration.
