Pure's licenses were granted by the Battelle Memorial Institute, the operator of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL"), a U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratory. The Company will continue to work with PNNL to commercialize the scientific technology PNNL has developed.
Under the terms of the acquisition, Pure will become a wholly owned subsidiary of CellCube, and the Company will acquire all the assets and assume the obligations owing ($187,000) in connection with Pure's research & development and business operations. CellCube will acquire all the outstanding common shares of Pure in exchange for 4,200,000 common shares of the company.
