TORONTO, March 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Biosenta, Inc. (CNSX: ZRO) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a non-exclusive distribution agreement with New South Biolabs, LLC to market and distribute the family of Zeromold products in the Southern USA, Caribbean Basin and South America. In addition to the non-exclusive distribution agreement, New South Biolabs will be responsible for the enterprise resource planning [ERP], production and customer relations management [CRM] within this territory. New South Biolabs will also have the non-exclusive opportunity to manufacture Zeromold within the territory. The distribution, sales and manufacture of Zeromold in the various regions within the territory will only commence in each jurisdiction once all regulatory and governmental authorizations have been obtained for each such jurisdiction.
New South Biolabs will pay a $600,000 mobilization fee to Biosenta, $300,000 of which was paid upon execution of the agreement. The second payment of $300,000 is due when Biosenta receives confirmation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the State of Florida of Zeromold product registration. New South Biolabs has also agreed to pay Biosenta a royalty equal to 30% of net profits from Zeromold product sold by New South to its accounts within the territory after New South Biolabs has recovered its fixed costs for the setup of the ERP and CRM components . Biosenta will continue to make its profit margin on the sale of all Zeromold products sold in the territory to Biosenta house accounts and in respect of the sale of product to New South Biolabs in its capacity as a distributor.
"This synergistic relationship has quickly borne fruit. The combined teams have already begun to execute as expected and deliver the logistics support and develop the marketing program for this territory" said Bruce Lewis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Biosenta. He added, "New South Biolabs presents a unique opportunity that will enable our Company to penetrate the USA market with Zeromold products in a geographic area that suffers heavily from black mould infestation."
