The Company has applied for patents which it believes are a new, original and ornamental design for Oral Consumable Flakes. The patents use the methods of preparing solulizable, encapsulated plant-based compositions.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company has paid $632,368 in legal and associated costs for the multiple patent applications.
As the patents have not been issued as of September 30, 2018, no amortization has been applied against the patent costs. If the patents are approved, the Company will amortize the patent application costs over their useful lives. If the patents are not approved, the patent application costs will be expensed and charged against income.
