License Agreements

          See Note 5 for information regarding licenses entered into by the Company. These agreements may require the Company to make future payments relating to sublicense fees, milestone fees and royalties on future sales, if any, of the Product Candidate.

Guarantees and Indemnifications

          The Company has accrued $4,080,500 at December 31, 2014, representing the Company's best estimate of the ultimate tax indemnification and gross-up payment to be made to a consultant pursuant to a tax indemnification granted to such consultant in connection with a restricted common stock grant (see Note 8).

          Additionally, in the normal course of business, the Company has entered into agreements that contain a variety of representations and provide for general indemnification. The Company's exposure under these agreements is unknown because it involves claims that may be made against the Company in the future. To date, the Company has not paid any claims or been required to defend any action related to these indemnification obligations. As of December 31, 2013 and 2014, and September 30, 2015 (unaudited), the Company did not have any material indemnification claims related to these agreements that were probable or reasonably possible and consequently has not recorded any related liabilities.


          Lawsuits may be asserted against the Company in the normal course of business. Based on information currently available, management believes that the disposition of any matters will not have a materially adverse effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.
