Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

As previously disclosed, on September 17, 2018, ChromaDex Corporation (the “Company”) and Trustees of Dartmouth College filed a patent infringement complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware against Elysium Health, Inc. The Company licenses U.S. Patent No. 8,383,086 and U.S. Patent No. 8,197,807 from the Trustees of Dartmouth College, which give ChromaDex exclusive rights to the leading NAD precursor nicotinamide riboside (NR). The court previously set a jury trial to begin on September 27, 2021.

 

On September 14, 2021, the court granted a Motion for Summary Judgment and vacated the trial date. The Company plans to appeal the court’s decision.

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, that are intended to be covered by the “safe harbor” created by those sections. These forward-looking statements include the Company’s plans to appeal the court’s decision. Forward-looking statements, which describe future plans, strategies, expectations and events, can otherwise generally be identified by the use of forward-looking terms such as “believe,” “expect,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “would,” “could,” “seek,” “intend,” “plan,” “goal,” “project,” “estimate,” “anticipate” or other similar terms. These forward-looking statements are based on current beliefs, expectations and assumptions that are subject to significant risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, including those risks and uncertainties discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. The forward-looking statements included in this Current Report on Form 8-K speak only as of the date hereof, and except as required by law, the Company expressly disclaims any intent, obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in the Company’s expectations with regard thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statements are based.
