9. Accrued Liabilities and other Long-Term Liabilities
In December 2012, the Company acquired certain manufacturing rights from Ovamed and agreed to pay an aggregate of $1.5 million, in three installments of $0.5 million on December 12, 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively. As of December 31, 2015, the Company had not made any payments to Ovamed. On February 27, 2015, Ovamed, the Company’s supplier and manufacturer of TSO, filed for insolvency in Germany, a process similar to U.S. bankruptcy. The accrual is recorded on the Consolidated Balance Sheets as a current accrued expense of $1.5 million as of December 31, 2015, as a result of the bankruptcy notification. This obligation was recorded at its full value; accretion of the obligation was $166,000, $154,000 and $136,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and is recorded as interest expense on the Consolidated Statements of Operations (see Note 8). On April 20, 2015, the Company decided to no longer pursue the development of TSO. As a result, the Company terminated all on-going TSO trials including its Phase 2A clinical trial in pediatric patients with autism spectrum disorder. A preliminary analysis of data from this trial failed to demonstrate any signal of activity.
The Company also had a collaboration agreement with Dr. Falk Pharma (“Falk”) in connection with the development of TSO. Under this agreement, Falk was to provide the Company with the Final Clinical Study Report (“CSR”). On August 3, 2015, Falk notified the Company that the CSR was complete and that access to the CSR was available. While the Company disputes the adequacy of the CSR and does not believe any payment is due to Falk, upon receipt of access to the CSR, the Company recorded a liability of €2.5 million ($2.8 million) in accrued expenses as of December 31, 2015.
