Additionally, the agreement provides BASF with the right to grant sub-licenses to cell manufacturers that use electrolyte formulations made by BASF or Mitsubishi Chemical.

The agreement constitutes the successful transfer of a licensing agreement previously established between Mitsubishi Chemical and the electrolytes business ofMerck.
