The Company also entered into a letter agreement and related amendment (the "Nektar Settlement Agreement") with Nektar Therapeutics ("Nektar") dated May 29, 2013, to resolve and settle certain disputed and undisputed amounts owed by the Company to Nektar under both a License, Manufacturing & Supply Agreement between the parties dated April 8, 2004, as amended, for the supply of raw material necessary for the manufacturing of OMONTYS (the "Nektar Agreement"), and a Master Services Agreement between the parties dated as of October 13, 2011 (together with associated project addenda, the "MSA").
