Plandaí Scores Lucrative License Deal

Less than a month removed from acquiring rights to a cutting edge nano and micro particle entrapment technology, Plandaí­ Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB – PLPL) has already secured a lucrative out-licensing agreement that could be worth millions in revenue over the next 5 years.

The Company has sold an exclusive license to Oasix, Inc., a Canadian company that develops and markets skin care products and also operates the Oasis Skin Institute in Alberta, Canada. The terms of the license agreement includes an initial payment of $500,000, of which half has already been paid to Plandaí­. The balance is due in the first half of 2014 based on completion of the Company’s clinical trials currently underway at North-West University.

According to the agreement, Oasix will have the right to develop and market cosmetic products using Phytofare™ Pheroid™ Topical Catechin Complex ("ph2TM"), a new topical cream developed using the nano-entrapment technology recently licensed by Plandaí. The 5-year license is limited to ph2TM Topical Catechin Complex for cosmetic uses in Canada, the U.S., South Africa and Nigeria. Oasix is also required to purchase annual minimum quantities of ph2TM Topical Catechin Complex from Plandaí, although the minimum quantity purchases have yet to been released to the public by the Company.

The Pheroid™ technology, developed by North-West University in Potchefstroom, South Africa, allows Phytofare™ particles to be entrapped and produced into a topical cream that should significantly enhance tissue absorption. Oasix initially plans to market the ph2TM Topical Catechin Complex as an anti-aging and sun-protectant cosmetic product.

This license agreement gives Plandaí­ a firm commitment for product sales as soon as the final testing is completed and production facilities come online in early 2014. Investors should view this deal as a tremendous validation of the product’s efficacy, as evidenced by the initial payment minimum purchase requirement clause as part of the license terms. Moreover, management now has revenue visibility for the next 5 years for this line, which should serve as a major boost to the Company’s valuation. Plus, it is now likely that additional licenses for Europe and other regions will be secured within the next several months as well.  Clearly, this major event means that these shares are ripe for a re-valuation.
