Solazyme and Roquette Frères Sign Joint Venture Agreement

New York, NY | Posted on November 8th, 2010

The JV is being formed to launch an entirely new category of natural, healthy and functional ingredients based on microalgae. The JV, which will be named Solazyme-Roquette Nutritionals, plans to launch a variety of oil, protein and fiber based products aimed at delivering improved performance with an improved health profile compared to ingredients in the market today.

The JV, which will be 50 percent owned by each parent company, will be operational by the beginning of 2011. Its management team and board of directors will be drawn from both parent companies, with Solazyme's CEO, Jonathan Wolfson, serving as the initial CEO of the JV. Roquette will fund and build a JV-owned, commercial-scale manufacturing plant with capacity in the tens of thousands of tons of annual production located at a Roquette corn wet mill. In addition, Roquette will provide upfront licensing payments to Solazyme and working capital to fund the JV until it reaches profitability.

Harris & Harris Group is an investor in privately held Solazyme, Inc.
