10. Commitments and Contingencies
Collaborative Agreements, Royalties and Milestone Payments
The Company has committed to make potential future milestone payments and legal fees to third parties as part of licensing and development programs. Payments under these agreements become due and payable only upon the achievement of certain developmental, regulatory and commercial milestones by the Company’s licensees. Because it is uncertain if and when these milestones will be achieved, such contingencies, aggregating up to $7.6 million (assuming one product per contract meets all milestones events) have not been recorded on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. The Company is unable to determine precisely when and if payment obligations under the agreements will become due as these obligations are based on milestone events, the achievement of which is subject to a significant number of risks and uncertainties.
Pursuant to the Company’s royalty purchase agreements with Bioasis, Aronora and Kuros, the Company has committed to pay the Bioasis Contingent Consideration, the Aronora Royalty Milestones and the Kuros Sales Milestones. The Company recorded $0.1 million for the Bioasis Contingent Consideration which represents the estimated fair value of these potential future payments at the inception of the agreement. The contingent consideration is remeasured at fair value at each reporting period, with changes in fair value recorded in other (expense) income, net. As of September 30, 2021, there were no changes in the estimated fair value of the Bioasis Contingent Consideration from its initial value. The liability for future Aronora Royalty Milestones and the Kuros Sales Milestones will be recorded when the amounts by product are estimable and probable. As of September 30, 2021, none of these Aronora Royalty Milestones or the Kuros Sales Milestones were assessed to be probable and as such, no liability was recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet.
