As explained in Note 1, on October 1, 2018, the Company completed the sale of its retail spine business to CTL Medical The gain on the sale of the retail spine business is estimated to approximate $1.4 million, which was recognized during the quarter ended December 31, 2018.


The Company and CTL Medical entered in an asset purchase agreement whereby CTL Medical agreed to acquire all of the Company’s commercial spine business for total consideration of $8.5 million, which includes a $6.0 million (including interest) note receivable (See Note 13) and CTL Medical’s assumption of the Company’s $2.5 million related party note payable (see Note 8). As a result of the closing, CTL Medical is now the exclusive owner of Amedica’s portfolio of metal and silicon nitride spine products, which are presently sold under the brand names of Taurus, Preference, and Valeo, with access to future silicon nitride spine technologies. The Company has agreed to pay the cost, if any, to re-sterilize and re-package select silicon nitride spinal inventories sold to CTL Medical if the sterilization date expires prior to CTL Medical selling the inventories to a third-party customer. The Company estimates the sterilization and repackaging cost to approximate $0.5 million. Manufacturing, R&D, and all intellectual property related to the core, non-spine, biomaterial technology of silicon nitride remains with the Company in Salt Lake City. The Company will serve as CTL’s exclusive OEM provider of silicon nitride products.
