|6. Commitments and Contingencies||
The Company, on occasion, may be involved in legal matters arising in the ordinary course of our business including matters involving proprietary technology. While management believes that such matters are currently insignificant, matters arising in the ordinary course of business for which the Company is or could become involved in litigation may have a material adverse effect on its business, financial condition or results of operations.
On November 13, 2014, the Company received a letter from Exeltis USA Dermatology, Inc. formerly known as Quinnova Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and herein referred to as Exeltis, claiming that the Company breached its Exclusive Sales and Distribution Agreement with Exeltis. Specifically, Exeltis claimed that the marketing and selling of its Alevicyn gel product violates the terms of the Exclusive Sales and Distribution Agreement and demanded the Company cease and desist from any further marketing or sales. The Company believes that the marketing and selling of its Alevicyn gel is not in violation of the Exclusive Sales and Distribution Agreement and that the claims made by Exeltis are without merit. Exeltis continues to purchase products from the Company under a new, non-exclusive distribution agreement for sale to their customers under their own brand. The Company intends to defend this matter vigorously and does not believe an accrual for a potential loss relating to this matter is necessary at this time. While the Company believes this claim is without merit, there can be no assurances provided that the outcome of this matter will be favorable to the Company or will not have a negative impact on its condensed consolidated financial position or results of operations.
As of June 30, 2015, the Company had employment agreements in place with four of its key executives. The agreements provide, among other things, for the payment of nine to twenty-four months of severance compensation for terminations under certain circumstances. With respect to these agreements, at June 30, 2015, potential severance amounted to $1,130,000 and aggregated annual salaries amounted to $935,000.
The entire disclosure for commitments and contingencies.
