MIAMI, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Onteco Corporation (OTC.QB: ONTC), (the "Company", or "Onteco"), announced today that it is finalizing an international licensing agreement with a Brazilian lighting products manufacturer for their exclusive marketing, sales and installation of the Company's NexPhase intellectual property ("IP").
As announced, the Company signed its first such international license agreement with JARLYN S.A, a Uruguayan corporation, on April 30th for its proprietary LED lighting IP, developed by its subsidiary, NexPhase Lighting, Inc. Under the JARLYN license, the Company is to receive a combination of $2.9 million dollars in common stock listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange plus a cash payment, in addition to an ongoing royalty stream on gross revenues from the sales and installations of lighting products using the IP.
"After entering into the JARLYN agreement, we began negotiations for the NexPhase IP in other South American countries," Dror Svorai, President of the Company, stated, "and we are delighted that we are ready to close on another transaction, this time with a Brazilian manufacturer that will have exclusive rights to the marketing and sales of the NexPhase IP throughout Brazil, which is a sizeable South American market for us." He added, "Terms of this agreement will be announced following closing which is expected to be in the next two weeks. Terms of the deal will include an ongoing royalty stream from the sales and installation of products using cutting-edge technology. We believe this second license further validates the value of our NexPhase IP."
