VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 19, 2021 / XPhyto Therapeutics Corp. (CSE:XPHY)(OTCQB:XPHYF)(FSE:4XT) ("XPhyto" or the "Corporation") is providing the following comments regarding a claim made against Vektor Pharma TF GMBH ("Vektor"), one of the Corporation's German subsidiaries.
Vektor is subject to a declaratory action made by a former client and current competitor (the "Claimant") in relation to alleged breach of the terms of a development agreement between Vektor and the Claimant. The Claimant has estimated its alleged damages at 1 million Euros. Vektor and management of the Corporation believe the claim is substantially without merit and intend to defend the claim vigorously. Vektor has filed a notice of defense in the respective German court. In the event that a court finds Vektor to be liable for damages, even in the amount estimated by the Claimant, such judgment is not expected to have a material adverse effect on the business or affairs of Vektor or the Corporation. The Corporation will provide further updates as the action progresses.
