The Company may, from time to time, be subject to claims and legal proceedings brought against it in the normal course of business. Such matters are subject to many uncertainties. Management believes the ultimate resolution of such contingencies will not have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial statements.
On December 18, 2020, the Company commenced an action in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey against Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Inc., Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Ltd., and Sun Pharma Global FZE (collectively, "Sun"). The action is a claim for patent infringement under the patent laws of the United States arising from Sun's commercial manufacture, use, offer to sell, or sales within the United States, and/or importation into the United States of Sun's CEQUATM product, a CNI immunosuppressant ophthalmic solution, prior to the expiration of our United States Patent Nos. 10,265,375 and 10,973871. In our action, we request relief in the form of an order confirming Sun has infringed our patent, an injunction preventing Sun from manufacturing, using or selling CEQUATM, and monetary relief (including costs). Sun responded by denying infringement and/or asserting that the patents at issue are invalid. The parties have exchanged initial pleadings and patent disclosures, and are in the process of claim construction proceedings. Trial is scheduled to commence on or around March 2023.
The Company has various manufacturing agreements to support our commercial and clinical product supply requirements.We rely on Lonza, a third party manufacturer, to produce a portion of commercial and clinical quantities of our commercial and clinical drug substance requirements. We have firm orders with Lonza for future purchases of drug substance, with remaining total non-cancellable future commitments of approximately $26.4 million through 2023 of which $3.5 million was paid during the second quarter of 2021. If we terminate certain firm orders with Lonza without cause, we will be required to pay for drug substance scheduled for manufacture under our arrangement.
