4.    Molteni Purchase Agreement

On March 21, 2018, we entered into a purchase agreement (“Molteni Purchase Agreement”)  with L. Molteni & C. Dei Frattelli Alitti Società Di Esercizio S.P.A. (“Molteni”) pursuant to which Molteni acquired the European intellectual property related to Probuphine, including the marketing authorization application under review by the European Medicines Agency (“EMA”), and gained the exclusive right to commercialize the Probuphine product supplied by us, to be marketed under the tradename Sixmo, in the EU, as well as certain countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States, the Middle East and North Africa (the “Molteni Territory”).

In connection with the Molteni Purchase Agreement, we received an initial payment of €2.0 million (approximately $2.4 million), of which approximately $1.0 million was allocated to the transfer of the intellectual property, which was recognized immediately, and approximately $1.4 million to our efforts towards the approval by the EMA by using the expected cost-plus approach to estimate the standalone selling price of and other regulatory bodies (“Titan Services”), which was recorded as deferred revenue and amortized as the performance obligations associated with the Titan Services being satisfied over time. Titan Services included employee-related expenses as well as other manufacturing, regulatory and clinical costs. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, we fully amortized our deferred revenue and recognized approximately $0.3 million of revenue associated with the completion of Titan Services.

In August 2018, we entered into an amendment to the Molteni Purchase Agreement, pursuant to which Molteni made an immediate payment of €950,000 (approximately $1.1 million) and a convertible loan of €550,000 (approximately $0.6 million) (“Molteni Convertible Loan”) (see Note 5) to us, both in exchange for the elimination of an aggregate of €2.0 million (approximately $2.3 million) of regulatory milestones provided for in the Molteni Purchase Agreement.

In September 2019, we entered into an additional amendment to the Molteni Purchase Agreement, pursuant to which the percentage earn-out payments on net sales were reduced and payments of any earn-outs were delayed until the later of (i) January 1, 2021 or (ii) the one year anniversary of completion of compliance by our manufacturer with EU requirements (currently anticipated to occur during the second quarter of this year).

In October 2020, in connection with the settlement of our debt obligations, we forfeited our rights to any future payments under the Molteni Purchase Agreement. See Note 8 “Subsequent Events.”
