Ibio (NYSEAMERICAN:IBIO) stock is on the rise Wednesday after announcing an end to its legal battle with Fraunhofer USA.
The end of the lawsuit comes as the two companies have reached a settlement agreement. This has the court confirming that certain intellectual properties at the heart of the matter do belong to iBio.
To go along with this, iBio has granted Fraunhofer USA a fully paid-up license to use the recombinant protein manufacturing technologies brought up in the lawsuit. It also has Fraunhofer USA covering the legal expenses in the lawsuit.
The settlement also requires Fraunhofer USA to make cash payments to iBio in March 2022 and March 2023. There are other stipulations of the settlement that weren’t made public due to them being confidential.
