Promissory Note Receivable and Definitive Supply Agreement:
In 1992, Veterinary Laboratories, Inc. ["Vet Labs"] and Sparhawk Laboratories, Inc. ["Sparhawk"] entered into the Vet Labs Sparhawk Joint Venture [the "Joint Venture"] for the manufacture and sale of veterinary pharmaceutical products. Vet Labs and Sparhawk each owned 50% of the Joint Venture. The Company controlled the Joint Venture through its control of the Joint Venture Policy Committee and therefore consolidated its assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses in these consolidated financial statements until March 4, 2004. The Company had funded the Joint Venture's losses since 1992 and, accordingly, has recorded 100% of these cumulative losses in the consolidated financial statements.
On January 13, 2004, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Sparhawk. Pursuant to this Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to sell the finished product veterinary pharmaceutical business, including substantially all of the assets of Vet Labs, to Sparhawk for $5,500,000 in cash. Effective March 4, 2004, this sale was completed. Simultaneously, on March 4, 2004, Chemdex, Inc. ["Chemdex"], a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, advanced $350,000 to Sparhawk in exchange for a promissory note bearing interest at 13% per annum and a warrant to purchase 4% of the equity of Sparhawk for no additional consideration. The promissory note was due in full on March 4, 2009. Interest was payable annually on the anniversary date, but could be deferred and added to the principal balance of the promissory note each year at Sparhawk's discretion. The warrant expired at the earlier of payment in full of the promissory note or 10 years from date of issue and therefore expired before it could be exercised. Pursuant to a definitive supply agreement [the "Supply Agreement"] entered into on March 4, 2004, Chemdex agreed to supply ferric hydroxide and hydrogenated dextran solution to Sparhawk on an exclusive basis in the United States for 10 years. Chemdex also granted to Sparhawk an exclusive license to use the drug master file to manufacture 10% bulk Iron Dextran for veterinary use, and the use of certain equipment during the 10-year period of the Supply Agreement. Pursuant to definitive agreements, the Company made representations, warranties and indemnities and agreed to a full release of all claims against Sparhawk arising from litigation involving the Joint Venture pending in the state court of Kansas. Similarly, Sparhawk agreed to a full release of all claims against the Company arising from the Joint Venture litigation.
The sale resulted in a gain of $2,209,471, of which $1,859,471 was recognized in the consolidated statements of operations and $350,000 was deferred. The deferred gain of $350,000 related to the promissory note receivable from Sparhawk as Sparhawk was thinly capitalized and highly leveraged. Since payment in full on the promissory note was received on May 31, 2006, the deferred gain of $350,000 was recognized at April 30, 2006 and included in other income on the statement of operations.
