Note 8—Commitments and Contingencies




In June 2019, Dana Farber Cancer Institute (“DFCI”) and OncoSec (each a “Party” and collectively the “Parties”) entered into a Sponsored Research Agreement (the “SRA”). On May 11, 2020, the SRA was terminated by DFCI, after a dispute arose between the parties. The Parties resolved the dispute through mediation and reached an agreement in principle. OncoSec agreed to pay DFCI a total of $900,000 in full and complete satisfaction of any and all claims that DFCI may have for reimbursement of expenses under the SRA in two equal installments of $450,000, the first of which shall be due on December 7, 2020 and the second of which shall be due on or before March 31, 2021. As of October 31, 2020, the Company has accrued $0.9 million, under the agreement and is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities at October 31, 2020 in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.


The Company is not a party to any other legal proceeding or aware of any other threatened action as of the date of this report.
