SAN MARCOS, Calif., March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural Alternatives International, Inc. ("NAI") (NASDAQ:NAII - News), a leading formulator, manufacturer and marketer of customized nutritional supplements, announced today that it has entered into a settlement agreement to provide BPI Sports, LLC ("BPI") and Image Sports, LLC ("Image") with NAI's patented CarnoSyn® beta-alanine.
Under the terms of the settlement agreement, BPI and Image will purchase CarnoSyn® beta-alanine from NAI's licensed distributor, Compound Solutions, Inc., ("CSI") pursuant to a separate supply agreement between CSI, BPI and Image and receive a license from NAI to its intellectual property rights regarding CarnoSyn® beta-alanine.
Mark A. LeDoux, NAI's CEO and Chairman of the Board, said, "NAI is pleased to amicably resolve its intellectual property dispute with BPI and Image. We look forward to partnering with these prominent brands who chose to respect NAI's extensive beta-alanine patent rights in return for a long-term business solution to exclusively use NAI's CarnoSyn® beta-alanine in their products. NAI will continue to build its CarnoSyn® brand and where necessary, enforce its beta-alanine intellectual property."
As part of the agreement NAI will dismiss two cases filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas against BPI and Image alleging infringement of NAI's recently issued patent, U.S. Patent No. 8,067,381, entitled "Methods and compositions for increasing the anaerobic working capacity in tissues." BPI and Image will dismiss a counter-suit they filed against NAI in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Other terms of the agreement are confidential.
