Note 4 – Sponsored Research Agreement ("SRA") Common Stock Subject to Put Rights and Call Right
Since April 20, 2002, the Company has entered into a number of Sponsored Research Agreements with the University of Oklahoma (“OU”) as follows:
Phase I: “Pilot Study to Investigate Digital Holography”, April 20, 2004. The Company paid OU $14,116.
Phase II: “Investigation of 3-Dimensional Display Technologies”, April 15, 2005, as amended. The Company paid OU $528,843.
Phase III: “3-Dimensional Display Development”. The Company made partial payment to OU by issuing 121,849 post-split equivalent shares (4,264,707 pre-split shares) with a market price of $290,000 on October 14, 2008 and final payment on December 1, 2010 in the amount of $525,481 of which $40,481 was in cash and 1,685,714 post-split equivalent shares (59,000,000 pre-split) shares of Company stock (the “Shares”). The Shares are subject to an OU ‘put’ right and a 3Dicon ‘call’ right.
OU “Put” Rights on the Shares
First “put” period: December 1, 2012 to November 30, 2013. If the Shares (held plus previously sold) are valued at less than $100,000 then OU can “put” one-tenth of the Shares for $50,000 plus accrued interest retro-active to December 1, 2012 less the value of sold shares. OU currently holds 1,807,563 post-split shares with a market value of less than $100,000. Under the terms of put rights, the put rights could be exercised by OU and the Company would be obligated to pay OU $50,000.
Second “put” period: December 1, 2013 to November 30, 2014. If the Shares (held & previously sold) are valued at less than $970,000 than OU can “put” the remaining Shares for $485,000 plus accrued interest retro-active to December 1, 2012 less the value of shares previously sold or redeemed during the first “put”.
3DIcon “Call” rights on the Shares
Commencing December 1, 2012, the Company shall have the right to “call” the Shares for an amount equal to $970,000 less the amount (if any) of prior Share shares by OU including amounts “put” to 3DIcon.
The Company has presented the shares outside of deficit in the mezzanine section of the balance sheets, as the Agreement includes put rights, which are not solely within the control of the Company.
The Agreement also amended the existing agreements between the Company and OU such that all intellectual property, including all inventions and or discoveries, patentable or un-patentable, developed before July 28, 2008 by OU under the SRA is owned by OU. All intellectual property, including all inventions and/or discoveries, patentable or un-patentable, developed jointly by the Company and OU at any time is jointly owned by the Company and OU. Finally, all intellectual property developed by the Company after July 28, 2008, including all inventions and or discoveries, patentable or un-patentable, is owned by the Company.
The entire disclosure for collaborative arrangements in which the entity is a participant, including a) information about the nature and purpose of such arrangements; b) its rights and obligations thereunder; c) the accounting policy for collaborative arrangements; and d) the income statement classification and amounts attributable to transactions arising from the collaborative arrangement between participants.
