components listed reftel and that they had been used in a
manner consistent with the information listed on the
application. Matrix Science had developed a prototype as
planned, but the transaction had fallen through. As a
result, the company was still in possession of the
components, Tan said. Econoff explained that Matrix Science
would need to apply for a new license if the company used the
components for any purpose other than what was stated on the
license application or if the company transferred the
components to another end user. Tan said he understood and
that it was unlikely the components would ever leave the
company.
