Sedana Medical AB (publ) in final deal with Teleflex Medical Incorporation
Sedana Medical AB (publ) (Sedana Medical) has reached an agreement with the American medical device corporation Teleflex Medical Incorporation (Teleflex) to finally make a settlement of current royalty agreement for the AnaConDa products.
Since the acquisition of AnaConDa technology by Teleflex in 2005, Sedana Medical has paid royalty on the sale of AnaConDa products. In connection with this deal, Sedana Medical pays a one-off amount of $ 750,000 instead of the remaining $ 1,051,000 of royalties, which means a significant saving. This means that Sedana Medical's all royalties and any other commitments with Teleflex have been terminated. Sedana Medical has thereby no royalty commitments to any party.
“This agreement goes hand-in-hand with our strategy and ongoing efforts to independently develop the therapy inhalation sedation in intensive care, and the expand of our sales organisation. We have thanks to this agreement taken another step towards realising our vision of making inhalation sedation with IsoConDa and AnaConDa a global standard method for the sedation of mechanically ventilated patients in intensive care,” says Christer Ahlberg, CEO of Sedana Medical AB (publ).
