Schiff was bought out recently so their strategy may have been changed. The new owners may prefer dealing with a reputable company like Neptune which has science and strong patents behind it rather than a fishing company like Aker which main science is how to copy and steal Neptune's technology. I will not be surprised to see Schiff coming back to dealing with Neptune again... That would be the final nail into Aker's coffin as they are not in a good shape financially..
