Litigation / Threatened Proceeding
On March 9, 2007, Peter K. Law, Ph.D. and Cell Transplants Asia, Limited, or the Plaintiffs,
filed a complaint against Bioheart, Inc. (referred to herein as us or we) and Howard J.
Leonhardt, individually, in the United States District Court, Western District of Tennessee. On
February 7, 2000, we entered a license agreement, or the Original Law License Agreement, with Dr.
Law and Cell Transplants International pursuant to which Dr. Law and Cell Transplants International
granted us a license to certain patents, including the Primary MyoCell Patent, or the Law IP. The
parties executed an addendum to the Original Law License Agreement, or the License Addendum, in
July 2000, the provisions of which amended a number of terms of the Original License Agreement.
More specifically, the Original License Agreement provided, among other things:
||The parties agreed that we would issue, and we did issue, to Cell Transplants
International a five-year warrant exercisable for 1.2 million shares of our common stock at
an exercise price of $8.00 per share instead of, as originally contemplated under the
Original Law License Agreement, issuing to Cell Transplants International or Dr. Law
600,000 shares of our common stock and options to purchase 600,000 shares of our common
stock at an exercise price of $1.80.
||The parties agreed that our obligation to pay Cell Transplants International a $3
million milestone payment would be triggered upon our commencement of a bona fide U.S.
Phase II human clinical trial that utilizes technology claimed under the Law IP instead of,
as originally contemplated under the Original Law License Agreement, upon initiation of a
FDA approved human clinical trial study of such technology in the United States.
The Plaintiffs are not challenging the validity of our license of the Law IP, but rather are
alleging and seeking, among other things, a declaratory judgment that the License Addendum fails
for lack of consideration. Based upon this argument, the Plaintiffs allege that we are in breach
of the terms of the Original Law License Agreement for failure to, among other things, (i) issue to
Cell Transplants International or Peter Law the 600,000 shares of our common stock and options to
purchase 600,000 shares of our common stock contemplated by the Original Law License Agreement and
(ii) pay Cell Transplants International the $3 million milestone payment upon our commencement of a
FDA approved human clinical study of MyoCell in the United States.
The Plaintiffs have alleged, among other things, certain other breaches of the Original Law
License Agreement not modified by the License Addendum including a purported breach of our
obligation to pay Plaintiffs royalties on gross sales of products that directly read upon the
claims of the Primary MyoCell Patent and a purported breach of the contractual restriction on
sublicensing the Primary MyoCell Patent to third parties. The Plaintiffs are also alleging that we
and Mr. Leonhardt engaged in a civil conspiracy against the Plaintiffs and that the court should
toll any periods of limitation running against the Plaintiffs to bring any causes of action arising
from or which could arise from the alleged breaches.
In addition to seeking a declaratory judgment that the License Addendum is not enforceable,
the Plaintiffs are also seeking an accounting of all revenues, remunerations or benefits derived by
us or Mr. Leonhardt from sales, provision and/or distribution of products and services that read
directly on the Law IP, compensatory and punitive monetary damages and preliminary and permanent
injunctive relief to prohibit us from sublicensing our rights to third parties.
We believe this lawsuit is without merit and intend to defend the action vigorously. While
the complaint does not appear to challenge our rights to license this patent and we believe this
lawsuit is without merit, this litigation, if not resolved to the satisfaction of both parties, may
adversely impact our relationship with Dr. Law and could, if resolved unfavorably to us, adversely
affect our MyoCell commercialization efforts.
We received notice of a potential claim by an existing shareholder, Steve May. Mr. May claims
that he filed a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, 2007 apparently in
connection with a request that the Company transfer to his name certain shares that were previously
issued in the name of another shareholder. Our counsel is currently attempting to contact Mr. May
to discuss the details of the transfers Mr. May is seeking to make. As best as we can tell, the
issue involves no more than 12,500 shares, but we are still seeking to understand Mr. Mays
