NetworkNewsBreaks – Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (NASDAQ: LEXX) Awards Exclusive License to Japan’s Premier Wellness Science Co.

Company: Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LEXX)
Category: News

Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), a global innovator in drug-delivery platforms, has awarded licensing of its proprietary DehydraTECH(TM) offering for development in Japan to Premier Wellness Science Co. Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Premier Anti-Aging Co. Ltd. LEXX announced that Premier is purchasing exclusive rights to DehydraTECH technology for the Japanese nonpharmaceutical market; the company will use the tech in oral liquid and nonliquid products, as well as for topical, hair-care, lip-care and cosmetics products. According to the announcement, Lexaria will receive minimum payments of $4,527,500 over the next five years, as all well as royalties from the sales of products made with DehydraTECH, which the company anticipates could be significantly greater than the minimum payments. In addition, the two companies agreed to explore the possibility of R&D collaborations. An official from Premier noted that the company partnered with Lexaria based on DehydraTECH’s superior performance and the extensive data available through Lexaria’s years of testing. “Lexaria is delighted to be working with Premier Wellness Science, which we expect will dominate the newly opening Japanese market for CBD-based products,” said Lexaria CEO Chris Bunka in the press release. “Premier and Lexaria share similar philosophies, such as the provision of world-leading products created through scientific advantages and placing the consumer’s needs ahead of our own. We could not have found a better partner with which to introduce DehydraTECH-enabled products to the Japanese markets.”
