Archived — TPC Status Report - May 1, 2010

The Industrial Technologies Office (ITO) publishes a semi-annual status report to enhance transparency of its legacy program - Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC).

TPC provided repayable contributions for innovative research and development (R&D) projects contracted between 1996 and 2006.

TPC projects were long-term (up to 30 years) commencing with an R&D phase, followed by a benefits phase - the period in which a product, or a technology, could generate revenue for the company. In such cases, repayments would flow back annually to the program according to the terms and conditions of the company’s contribution agreement.

Nearly 21 percent of active projects are still in the R&D phase and repayments are not expected for a number of years. That being said, TPC repayments are in line with forecasts and are continuing to increase. Repayments are usually paid on an annual basis while a project is in the benefits phase. Repayments to TPC are expected to continue until 2033, when the last project ends.

TPC Program Highlights:

Total number of active projects: 227

R&D phase projects (repayments are not yet due): 48

Benefits phase projects (subject to repayments): 179

Total disbursements to date: $3.1 billion

Total cumulative repayments collected to date: $567.8 million

Total repayments collected in 2009-2010: $99.3 million

Explanatory notes:

Contribution Date: is the date that a company signed its contribution agreement. If a company has more than one project, the date indicated is the earliest contribution agreement signing date.

Company: is the name of the legal entity which currently has one or more TPC contribution agreements.

Authorized Assistance: represents the maximum amount contracted at the time of the initial contribution agreement. As the R&D progresses and a project reaches its conclusion the final disbursed amount could be much lower. The total authorized assistance for all TPC projects is $3.5 billion.

Repayments: represents the amount collected and/or the information that a company has allowed ITO to disclose. Should a company have several contribution agreements its decision to disclose repayments may not extend to all TPC projects. In some cases, the repayment obligations of a TPC contribution required a company to provide share warrants to the Government as partial or full repayment. Warrants, which may be sold, are a right to acquire the company shares at a certain price for a period of time. If warrants are sold, the sale amount received is recorded as a repayment.

Indicates that repayments are not yet due on the company’s project(s).

Indicates that the company has not provided ITO with an authorization to disclose repayment information. Repayment details are protected under TPC agreements signed prior to August 2006.

Indicates that a company has multiple TPC projects - some may still be in the R&D phase with no repayments owing.
