The neutrinos acquire masses through a type-II seesaw while the lepton (L) asymmetry arises in the singlet sector but without B–L-number violation. The model has the virtue that the scale of L-number violation (Λ) giving rise to neutrino masses is independent of the scale of leptogenesis (Λ').

The stability of the dark matter is ensured by a surviving Z2 symmetry, which could be lifted at the Planck scale, thereby allowing Planck scale suppressed decay of singlet scalar dark matter particles of mass 3 MeV to e+e- pairs in the Galactic halo.
