Vermillion Resolves Non-Contingent Claims with Bio-Rad
News May 01, 2012
Vermillion, Inc. has resolved all four of the non-contingent contract claims with Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. arising from the sale to Bio-Rad of Vermillion's protein research tools and collaborative services business in November 2006.
In exchange for a final settlement of the non-contingent claims, Bio-Rad will receive $700,000 from an escrow account established by Vermillion for the sale transaction. Vermillion will be returned approximately $1,080,000 from the escrow account, with $50,000 remaining in escrow as security for Bio-Rad's contingent indemnity claim in respect to the parties' litigation with Molecular Analytical Systems.
"Given that it returns to us the majority of the $1.8 million remaining in the escrow account, we view this resolution with Bio-Rad as very successful," said Gail S. Page, Vermillion's president and chief executive officer. "Going forward, we can now apply more resources toward accelerating the commercialization of OVA1® and the advancement of our product pipeline."
Vermillion sold the assets and liabilities of its protein research tools and collaborative services business to Bio-Rad in order to concentrate on developing clinical protein biomarker diagnostic products and services. In October 2009, Bio-Rad filed a proof of claim in Vermillion's bankruptcy case for approximately $1 million, based upon four non-contingent contract claims which have now been resolved. Vermillion had accrued for this contingency in its financial statements within general and administrative expense.
