About the dispute, Matt Titlow, CEO of Compound Solutions Inc. said, “We are happy to announce the settlement. We will continue to vigorously defend the BHB patent in the marketplace and help create a fairer environment for our clients.”
Titlow continued, “In addition to patent protection, customers working with branded goBHB® are assured the material is regulatory compliant. goBHB® is GRAS certified, as well as patent-protected, and Informed-Choice/Informed-Sport certified. Furthermore, the manufacturer of goBHB® has registered the ingredient with local regulatory agencies, invested millions in tight pollution control and successfully passed an FDA-audit. The factory is also NSF-certified. These quality assurances are not found with generic BHBs. Our client partners can count on us to continue this level of support, and to ensure there is a level playing field in the market.”
CSI has commercialized many popular ingredients in the nutritional supplement industry, from sports nutrition to keto-diet support. It has a long history of working with its partners to strongly defend ingredient intellectual property. CSI licensed the patent from Axcess Global, an intellectual property company specializing in the ketogenic sector. Only Compound Solutions has the right to sell the patented BHB.
With this settlement, Compound Solutions and Axcess Global have successfully settled all four patent-infringement lawsuits filed over the past year.
