On March 28, 2008, Avecia received a letter from the Defence Science and Technology Lab, a branch of the UK Ministry of Defence, advising Avecia of the recent resource allocation decision of the US Department of Defense (DoD) and that the DoD had decided not to fund Avecia's plague vaccine candidate beyond the current contractual commitments. The parties are engaged in discussions to amend the terms of the sale and purchase agreement to accommodate this change in circumstances. The Company is still working towards closing in early April.
