("Benten BioServices") are no longer consolidated with those of Deltagen and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Xenopharm and Deltagen Research Laboratories, L.L.C. because Benten BioServices ceased being a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deltagen on August 15, 2012 due to the close of financing, after which Deltagen held 43.8% of the outstanding shares of Benten BioServices The application of the equity method of accounting now reports Benten BioServices' operating results as a single line in Deltagen's financial statements, which reflect Deltagen's 43.8% ownership interest in Benten BioServices.

("Lexicon") of $5.705 million in royalty payments pursuant to a March 2005 settlement agreement between Lexicon and the Company.
