MicroVision Inc (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature projection display and sensing technology announced that it entered into a license agreement with a leading technology company to allow the licesee to use MicroVision’s display technology to manufacture and sell display only engines based on MicroVision reference designs.

As quoted in the press release:

The agreement grants a world wide, exclusive, five-year license to display-only technology.  In order to maintain exclusivity, the licensee is required to purchase  minimum quantities of MEMS and ASICs from MicroVision.

“We are excited to announce this agreement with a recognized world leader in the manufacturing and sale of electronic products and components,” said Perry Mulligan, MicroVision’s Chief Executive Officer.  “This license agreement for display-only products validates our product roadmap and Go-To-Market strategy of targeting five key vertical markets. We believe our licensee’s manufacturing prowess and use of our Laser Beam Scanning technology will assist MicroVision in lowering product costs and securing new customers in the other verticals that we serve.”

The licensee has agreed to pay MicroVision a license fee of $10 million in 2018.  An initial payment of $5 million is scheduled to be paid this quarter and a second payment of $5 million is scheduled to be paid in October.  As part of the agreement, MicroVision expects to receive additional payments for non-recurring engineering expenses and services associated with process and product transfer and qualification milestones.

The agreement does not include a license to MicroVision technology related to interactive displays, LiDAR and 3D sensing, or near-eye applications, such as augmented or virtual reality, which remain key vertical markets for MicroVision.
