Note 4 – Commitments and Contingencies

We have maintained a separate representation and distribution agreement relating to the development of the zinc gluconate glycine product formulation.  In return for exclusive distribution rights, we agreed to pay the developer a 3% royalty and a 2% consulting fee based on sales collected, less certain deductions, throughout the term of this agreement, which expired in May 2007.  However, we and the developer are in litigation and as such no potential offset from such litigation for these fees have been recorded.  The amount accrued for this expense at each of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010 is $3.5 million.

We have estimated future obligations over the next five years, including the remainder of Fiscal 2011, as follows (in thousands):
