It is a priority for the Company to continue to identify additional parties who would benefit from taking a license to the Companys non-coding patents. We are now pursuing negotiations with a number of companies and organizations in USA and Europe, together with a variety of other countries, that would benefit from taking a license to our non-coding patents or from collaborations with our service testing business.
In order to increase the rate at which these licenses can be secured, the licensing team at the Companys headquarters in Melbourne, Australia has been expanded in recent years by the appointment of additional staff to accelerate the preparation of dossiers on potential licensees. Internationally, independent licensing contractors have also been engaged to represent the Company on the ground in our major markets.
