The Dow Chemical Co. and Symyx Technologies, Inc. have announced a five-year strategic alliance agreement to enhance research and development activity within Dow through high-throughput experimentation technologies and informatics solutions provided by Symyx. This expansion of the two companies' relationship builds upon a six-year history of collaborative research that resulted in the discovery of innovative catalysts now used in the manufacture of Dow's VERSIFY plastomers and elastomers launched in early 2004. Under the terms of the agreement, Symyx will perform research in a number of exclusive areas, develop and provide Symyx Discovery Tools, and license Symyx's Renaissance suite of software, as well as certain intellectual property. Dow will make payments of approximately $120 million to Symyx over the five-year term. Symyx expects that approximately 40% of this revenue will be service revenue, 30% product revenue and 30% license revenue. In addition, Symyx will receive royalties on commercialized discoveries resulting from the collaborative research.
