"In August, we signed a multi-phase joint development agreement with Hanesbrands, Inc. and a spinning and trademark licensing agreement with Patrick Yarns. In July, we entered a manufacturing agreement with G.J. Littlewoods & Son. We also raised $916,000 in gross proceeds through a private placement to support our commercialization activities in the coming months. We remain committed to our goal of delivering initial revenue from Crailar in the fourth quarter of this year and finalizing the distribution and marketing of Crailar with our industry-leading partners. We are excited about the near-term opportunities for both our technology and our company."
