Yesterday, INVO Bioscience announced it had amended its agreement with Ferring Pharmaceuticals regarding exclusive U.S. commercialization. Under the amendment, the number of INVO-owned clinics initially allowed will increase. Additionally, particular geographical restrictions will be removed.
INVO Bioscience CEO Steve Shum commented that Ferring and INVO have been able to complete this amendment and our commitment to ensuring INVOcell will be used as widely as possible in the U.S. is reflected in the strength of our ongoing collaboration. Also, INVO’s dedicated clinic approach enables the company to capture additional per-procedure income, thereby accelerating market adoption of INVOcell. The company expects its initial U.S. activities to provide greater access for patients by increasing the industry’s capacity, affordability, and accessibility.
Also, the amendment altered the required minimum contractual purchase requirements for 2020, which will be met by Ferring by placing a $501,000 order.
