SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 21, 2015 / Innovus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., ("Innovus Pharma") www.innovuspharma.com (OTCQB: INNV) announced today it has expanded its license and distribution agreement with Orimed Pharma ("Orimed") under which Innovus Pharma granted to Orimed an exclusive license to market and sell Innovus Pharma's oral supplement for male infertility, Androferti(R). Under the agreement signed in August 2014, Innovus is eligible to receive up to $94.55 million Canadian dollars in upfront and sales milestone payments plus double-digit tiered royalties based on Orimed's net sales in Canada.

Innovus Pharma obtained the exclusive rights to commercialize the product in the US and Canada from Q Pharma, Spain in January 28 2015.

Bassam Damaj, President and Chief Executive Officer of Innovus Pharma commented, "We are very excited about the expansion of our agreement with Orimed as it marks the 11th commercial agreement the Company has signed so far and validates our commercial strategy where we are able to in-license string products and out-license them in the markets where we do not have commercial operations. This is an important milestone in our strategy as Androferti marks the 5th product licensed for the Canadian market. This partnership the first of many partnerships the Company is expected to announce in the near future."
