On May 3, 2017, the Company paid Dr. Kaspar $1.7 million, which represents the tax liabilities owed to the U.S., State of Ohio and municipality of New Albany, Ohio pursuant to Dr. Kaspar’s 2014 amended tax returns. As a result, the Company has accrued balances of $2.8 million and $4.5 million at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, representing the Company’s best estimate of the ultimate tax indemnification and gross-up payment to be made to Dr. Kaspar. The overall decrease in the accrued indemnification obligation was due to the May 3, 2017 payment to Dr. Kaspar, offset slightly by accrual of additional interest through June 30, 2017. The Company expects to pay this entire amount in 2017.
