Phase Five incorporates the signing off on final specifications and plans. Final production agreements will be completed during early 2015. A full product launch is expected by mid year 2015.
Each of the phases will result in payments to Flexpoint from Haemoband Surgical. The contract totals for the deliverables will result in record revenues for the company.
