Landec Sells Seed Coating Business And Partners With INCOTEC To Gain Global Access For Landec Agriculture Seed Coating Technology

Landec Corporation (Nasdaq:LNDC), a company that develops and markets patented products for food, agricultural and biomedical applications, announced today that it has entered into three agreements with INCOTEC ® Coating and Seed Technology Companies, a leading provider of seed and coating technology products and services to the seed industry. The partnership provides Landec access to growing global markets for its polymer technology and enables Landec to exit the day-to-day operations of its agricultural seed coating business. These agreements enable Landec to focus on developing new polymer formulations for an agricultural market increasingly dependent on seed coating technology and to leverage INCOTEC’s global presence in the seed treatment markets.

In the first agreement, Landec sold its seed subsidiary, Landec Ag LLC, to INCOTEC Holding North America, Inc. Landec Ag was sold to INCOTEC for $600,000, which will result in a gain of approximately $400,000.

In the second agreement, Landec entered into a seven-year exclusive technology license and polymer supply agreement with INCOTEC Field Crops North America LLC for the use of Landec’s Intellicoat ® polymer seed coating technology for male inbred corn which is sold under the Pollinator Plus ® label. This license does not include the use of Intellicoat for the controlled release of an active ingredient for agricultural applications which will be retained by Landec. Landec will be the exclusive supplier of Pollinator Plus polymer to INCOTEC during the term of the license agreement and Landec will receive a royalty equal to 20% of the revenues realized by INCOTEC from the sale of or sublicense of Pollinator Plus coatings during the first four years of the agreement and 10% for the last three years of the agreement.

In the third agreement, Landec entered into a five-year exclusive technology license and polymer supply agreement with INCOTEC HOLDINGS B.V. for the joint development of new polymer and unique coatings for use in seed treatment formulations. In this agreement Landec will receive a value share which will be mutually agreed to by both parties prior to each application being developed.
