Cellmid, the anti-baldness company loses court case against its former marketing agency which has forced the company to spend nearly $1 million. Cellmid (ASX: CDY) is developing cancer and heart disease treatments and makes hair growth tonics. Its hair products are stocked by US department stores Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.
The company continue to extract value from midkine drug development and patent portfolio and the recent preclinical results add value creation opportunities.
According to Mumbrella, centered around Ikon Communications seeking payment from Cellmid for its services the court case was heard in the NSW Supreme Court. Also, Cellmid counter-sued as reported by Mumbrella, with its subsidiary Advangen accusing Ikon Communications of creating a 2015 marketing campaign that generated no sales.
Advangen’s counter-claim be thrown out and the court ruled Ikon was entitled to its claim of $939,055.65 plus interest. The company said in a statement, Cellmid maintains its position that Ikon failed to provide the services agreed in the contract in the board’s view, caused the failure of the campaign and is disappointed with the court’s decision.
