Nano-Proprietary, Inc. and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. to Solidify Their Relationship

Austin, TX | Posted on May 19th, 2008

Under the proposed structure, Mitsui will hold a contingent license, locking in the terms under which Mitsui will be able to extend sublicenses to its prospects. Mitsui has paid a fee to protect their position as the exclusive master license holder by continuing the current option agreement until July 31, 2008. At that time, the existing option agreement will terminate. During the next three months the companies intend to jointly expedite the discussions with potential sublicensees already identified by Mitsui. The proposed master practical agreement may include an exclusive agency agreement and/or an exclusive license agreement. The parties intend to continuously monitor the sublicensing process and adjust their understanding and activities accordingly.

"I am pleased that this relationship is moving in the direction of Mitsui becoming our exclusive licensee for lighting products with several sublicense relationships," said Thomas F. Bijou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nano-Proprietary, Inc.
