7.5.3.
Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 7.5 of notice of the commencement of any action (including any governmental action) for which a party may be entitled to indemnification hereunder, such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party under this Section 7.5, give the indemnifying party notice of the commencement thereof. The indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in such action and, to the extent the indemnifying party so desires, participate jointly with any other indemnifying party to which notice has been given, and to assume the defense thereof with counsel mutually satisfactory to the parties; provided, however, that an indemnified party (together with all other indemnified parties that may be represented without conflict by one counsel) shall have the right to retain one separate counsel, at its expense unless representation of such indemnified party by the counsel retained by the indemnifying party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential conflict of interest between such indemnified party and any other party represented by such counsel in such action. The failure to give notice to the indemnifying party will not relieve it of any liability that it may have to any indemnified party except if such failure shall have materially prejudiced the indemnifying party.

7.5.4.
To provide for just and equitable contribution to joint liability under the Securities Act in any case in which either: (i) any party otherwise entitled to indemnification hereunder makes a claim for indemnification pursuant to this Section 7.5 but it is judicially determined (by the entry of a final judgment or decree by a court of competent jurisdiction and the expiration of time to appeal or the denial of the last right of appeal) that such indemnification may not be enforced in such case, notwithstanding the fact that this Section 7.5 provides for indemnification in such case, or (ii) contribution under the Securities Act may be required on the part of any party hereto for which indemnification is provided under this Section 7.5, then, and in each such case, such parties will contribute to the aggregate losses, claims, damages, liabilities, or expenses to which they may be subject (after contribution from others) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of each of the indemnifying party and the indemnified party in connection with the statements, omissions, or other actions that resulted in such loss, claim, damage, liability, or expense, as well as to reflect any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the indemnifying party and of the indemnified party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or allegedly untrue statement of a material fact, or the omission or alleged omission of a material fact, relates to information supplied by the indemnifying party or by the indemnified party and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information, and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission; provided, however, that, in any such case (x) HBL shall not be required to contribute any amount in excess of the public offering price of all such Traded Stock offered and sold by HBL pursuant to such registration statement, and (y) no Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) will be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation; and provided further that in no event shall HBL’s liability pursuant to this subsection (iv), when combined with the amounts paid or payable by HBL pursuant to subsection (ii), exceed the proceeds from the offering received by HBL (net of any selling expenses paid by HBL), except in the case of willful misconduct or fraud by HBL.

WARRANT TO PURCHASE ORDINARY SHARES
OF CELL CURE NEUROSCIENCES LTD.
(THE WARRANT)

THIS CERTIFIES THAT, for value received, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, HBL-Hadasit Bio-Holdings Ltd., (the "Holder") is entitled to purchase, at the Exercise Price (as such term is defined in Section 2 below) and at any time and from time to time until the Expiration Date (as defined in Section 2 hereof),  such number of Ordinary Shares, nominal value NIS 0.01 each (the “Ordinary Shares”)  of Cell Cure Neurosciences Ltd. (the “Company”) as set forth herein, subject to the provisions and upon the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth in this Warrant, being issued to the Holder pursuant to that certain Debt and Note Purchase Agreement, dated June 16, 2017 (the “Debt Purchase Agreement”).
 
1.          Number & Class of Warrant Shares; Exercise Price & Period.
 
(a)           Number of Warrant Shares; Exercise Price. The Holder will be entitled to purchase up to 24,566 Ordinary Shares (the “Warrant Shares”) at an exercise price per each Warrant Share of US$40.5359 (the "Exercise Price"):

32

(d)           Adjustment. If the outstanding shares of the class or series of shares issuable upon exercise hereof shall be subdivided into a greater number of shares, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision shall simultaneously with the effectiveness of such subdivision, be proportionately reduced. If the outstanding shares of the class or series of shares issuable upon exercise hereof shall be combined into a smaller number of shares, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such combination shall, simultaneously with the effectiveness of such combination, be proportionately increased. When any adjustment is required to be made in the Exercise Price, in accordance herewith, the number of Warrant Shares purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant shall be changed to the number determined by dividing (i) an amount equal to the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant immediately prior to such adjustment, multiplied by the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such adjustment, by (ii) the Exercise Price in effect immediately after such adjustment. In case at any time or from time to time on or after the date hereof the holders of the class of shares of which the Warrant Shares are a part, shall have received or, on or after the record date fixed for the determination of eligible shareholders, shall have become entitled to receive, without payment therefor, other or additional securities of the Company by way of dividend, bonus shares or other distribution, then, and in each case, the Holder shall, upon the exercise of this Warrant, be entitled to receive, in addition to the number of Warrant Shares receivable thereupon, and without payment of any additional consideration therefor, the amount of such other or additional securities of the Company which such Holder would be entitled to receive had it been the holder of record of such Warrant Shares on the date hereof and had thereafter, during the period from the date hereof to and including the date of such exercise, retained such shares and/or all other additional shares receivable by it as aforesaid during such period.
 
(e)           For the purpose of this Warrant, the following terms are defined as follows:
 
"IPO"  means an initial underwritten public offering of the Shares of the Company pursuant to an effective registration statement under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended or the Israeli Securities Law, 5728-1968, as amended or equivalent law of another jurisdiction

"Corporate Transaction" means the consummation of any of the following transactions or series of related transactions to which the Company is a party: (i) A merger, acquisition, reorganization or consolidation in which the Company is not the surviving entity (or survives only as a subsidiary of another entity whose shareowners did not own all or substantially all of the shares in substantially the same proportions as immediately prior to such transaction), except for a transaction the principal purpose of which is to change the jurisdiction in which the Company is incorporated; or (ii) the sale, transfer, exchange or other disposition of all or substantially all of the shares or assets of the Company (including, intellectual property rights which, in the aggregate, constitute substantially all of the Company's material assets), in a transaction not covered by the exception to clause (i) above; provided, however, that a bona fide private equity financing of the Company,  which does not fall under Section (i) or (ii) above, shall not constitute a Corporate Transaction hereunder.

2.          Method of Exercise; Payment; Redemption
 
(a)           Prior to the Expiry Date, this Warrant may be exercised by the Holder, in whole or in part), by the surrender of this Warrant, with a duly executed notice of exercise in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the "Notice of Exercise") at the principal office of the Company, accompanied by the payment to the Company, by cash, wire transfer or such other method acceptable to the Company, of an amount equal to the applicable Exercise Price under Section 1(a) above.
 
(b)          In the event that the Holder does not provide the Company with the Notice of Exercise and effect the payment in consideration for the Warrant Shares purchased by such Holder prior to the Expiry Date, then such Holder shall be deemed to have waived its rights under this Warrant.
 
[ * ] = Certain confidential information contained in this document, marked by brackets, has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
 
33

(d)          The exercise of this Warrant shall be deemed to have been effected immediately prior to the close of business on the day on which this Warrant is surrendered to the Company as provided in Section 2(a) above, and the Holder shall be deemed the holder of record of the Warrant Shares as of such date.
 
(e)           In the event of any exercise of this Warrant in accordance with the terms hereof, the Company shall (i) issue the Warrant Shares to the Holder; (ii) deliver to the Holder share certificate(s) evidencing the Warrant Shares (iii) register the Holder in its register of shareholders; and (iv) notify the Israeli Companies Registrar of such issuance. In the event of a partial exercise of this Warrant, the Company shall concurrently issue to the Holder a replacement warrant on the same terms and conditions of this Warrant, which shall be dated as of the date hereof, covering the number of Warrant Shares in respect of which this Warrant shall not have been exercised.

2A. Net Issue Exercise.

(a)           Notwithstanding the foregoing, in lieu of payment of the Exercise Price per Warrant Share as set forth in Section 2(a) above, the Holder may elect to receive, for no additional consideration, Warrant Shares equal to the value of this Warrant, or any portion of the Warrant which the Holder requests to exercise,  by surrender of this Warrant at the principal office of the Company together with executed Notice of Exercise reflecting such election, in which event the Company shall issue to the Holder a number of Warrant Shares computed using the following formula:

   
Y (A-B)
X = ———————
A
           
Where:
 
X
 
=
the number of Warrant Shares to be issued to the Holder.
           
   
Y
 
=
the number of Warrant Shares underlying the portion of this Warrant which the Holder requests to exercise pursuant to this Section 2A.
           
   
A
 
=
the per share Fair Market Value (as defined below) of a Warrant Share as of the date of exercise pursuant to this Section 2A.
           
   
B
 
=
The per shares Exercise Price of a Warrant Share issuable under this Warrant, as in effect  on the date of exercise pursuant to this Section 2A.

(i)               In no event shall a Net Issue Exercise be settled in cash.

For example, if the Holder elects to exercise this Warrant pursuant to this Section 2A, with respect to 10,000 Warrant Shares (i.e. Y=10,000), and assuming that the per share Fair Market Value of a Warrant Share as of the exercise date is US$80 (i.e. A=80), and the per share Exercise Price of a Warrant Share as of the exercise date is US$40.5359 (i.e. B=40.5359), then the Company shall issue to the Holder 4,933 Warrant Shares upon such exercise (i.e. X=4,933).
 
[ * ] = Certain confidential information contained in this document, marked by brackets, has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
 
34

(b)          Fair Market Value. For purposes of this Section 2A, the per share "Fair Market Value" of the Warrant Shares shall mean:

 
(i)
If the Company’s Ordinary Shares are publicly traded and listed on a stock exchange, the per share Fair Market Value of the Warrant Shares shall be the average of the closing prices of the Ordinary Shares as quoted on the principal exchange on which the Ordinary Shares are listed, in each case for the 15 (fifteen) trading days ending five trading days prior to the date of exercise pursuant to this Section 2A;

(ii)
If the Ordinary Shares are not publicly traded and:

(1)
the exercise date is immediately prior to the closing of an IPO, then the Fair Market Value shall be offer price of the IPO for each Ordinary Share of the Company with the exercise of Warrant and issuance of the Warrant Shares shall be deemed to have taken place immediately prior to the closing of the IPO.

(2)
the exercise date is immediately prior to the closing of a Corporate Transaction, then the per share Fair Market Value of the Warrant Shares shall the price per Warrant Share as determined as part of such Corporate Transaction

(3)
otherwise, as shall be determined in good faith by the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") and described in a written notice delivered by the Company to the Holder within five (5) days following the date of exercise pursuant to this Section 2A (the "Fair Market Value Notice"); provided, however, that the Holder shall be entitled to object to such determination by delivering a written notice to the Company to that effect (an "Objection Notice"), in which event the  Fair Market Value shall be determined by an independent appraiser selected by the Company and the Holder, whose costs of engagement shall be borne by the Holder If an Objection Notice is not delivered by the Holder to the Company within twenty (20) days after delivery by the Company of the Fair Market Value Notice to the Holder, such failure to so object will be deemed an irrevocable waiver and release by the Holder of the Company, its shareholders, officers, directors, employees, representatives, legal counsel and affiliated entities, from all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs and expenses in connection with the determination of the Fair Market Value by the Board.

3.          Shares Fully Paid; Reservation of Shares. All of the Warrant Shares issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant will, upon issuance and receipt of the Exercise Price therefore, be validly issues, fully paid and non-assessable, and free from all liens, charges, claims, encumbrances, preemptive rights, rights of first refusal or similar rights, or any other third party rights with respect thereto. At all times prior to the Expiry Date, the Company will have authorized and reserved for issuance sufficient shares, free from pre-emptive rights to provide for the exercise of this Warrant, so that this Warrant may be exercised without additional authorization of share capital. The Company will not by amendment of its Articles of Association or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issuance or sale of its securities or any other action, avoid, or seek to avoid, the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all provisions hereof and in taking of all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of the Holder hereunder against any impairment.

In the event of fractional shares, the Company will round up the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon such exercise to the nearest whole share (with one-half being rounded upward).
 
6.          No Public Market in Shares. The Holder acknowledges that no public market now exists for any of the Warrant Shares and that the Company has made no assurances that a public market will ever exist for the Company’s shares. The Holder further acknowledges that it is an experienced investor and that it is fully capable of assessing the risks of exercising the Warrant Shares and of bearing the economic risks of doing so.
 
8.          No Transferability. Neither party may assign, convey or transfer any of its rights or obligations under this Warrant; provided, that the Holder may assign this Warrant and its rights hereunder to any of its Affiliates (as such term is defined in the Debt Purchase Agreement).
 
9.          No Rights of Shareholders. Except as otherwise provided in the Debt Purchase Agreement, this Warrant, does not, by itself, entitle the Holder to any rights (voting or otherwise) as a shareholder of the Company. In the absence of affirmative action by the Holder to acquire Warrant Shares by exercise of this Warrant, no provisions of this Warrant shall cause the Holder to be a shareholder of the Company for any purpose.
 
11.        Loss, Theft, Destruction or Mutilation of Warrant. If this Warrant is lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated, the Company will execute and deliver to the Holder a replacement warrant of like date, tenor, and denomination upon receipt by the Company of (a) evidence satisfactory to the Company of the occurrence of such event; and (b) (i) in the event of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation of this Warrant; or (ii) in the event of loss, theft, or destruction of this Warrant, of indemnity reasonably satisfactory to the Company.

12.        Taxes. Each party acknowledges and agrees that any and all tax imposed on such party in connection with this Warrant, including with relation to the grant hereof, the exercise of the Warrant Shares, and the sale of the Warrant Shares shall be borne solely by such party, and such party will be solely liable for all such tax.

13.        Headings. The headings contained in this Warrant have been inserted as a matter of convenience, do not form part, and will not affect construction of, this Warrant.

14.        Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Warrant and all matters arising out of or in connection with this Warrant will be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the  State of Israel, without reference to its conflict of laws principles. Any proceeding regarding a dispute arising under or in relation to this Agreement will be resolved exclusively in the competent courts of (i) Tel Aviv-Jaffa if such proceeding is initiated by BioTime, and (ii) in the city of New York, New York, if such proceeding is initiated by HBL, and the Company and the Holder hereby irrevocably submits to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.

36

15.        Partial Invalidity. If any provision of this Warrant is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then such provision will be excluded from this Warrant and the remainder of this Warrant will be interpreted as if such provision were so excluded and will be enforceable in accordance with its terms; provided, however, that in such event this Warrant will be interpreted so as to give effect, to the greatest extent consistent with and permitted by applicable law, to the meaning and intention of the excluded provision.
 
16.        Entire Agreement. The Debt Purchase Agreement and this Warrant constitute the entire agreement between the Holder and the Company relating to the subject matter addressed herein, and supersedes all prior communications, contracts or agreements, whether oral or written.
 
17.        Counterparts. This Warrant may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

(e)          In the event of any exercise of this Warrant in accordance with the terms hereof, the Company shall (i) issue the Warrant Shares to the Holder; (ii) deliver to the Holder share certificate(s) evidencing the Warrant Shares (iii) register the Holder in its register of shareholders; and (iv) notify the Israeli Companies Registrar of such issuance.

X = ———————
A

B
 
=
 
The per shares Exercise Price of a Warrant Share issuable under this Warrant, as in effect  on the date of exercise pursuant to this Section 2A.

(ii)
If the Ordinary Shares are not publicly traded and:

(1)
the exercise date is immediately prior to the closing of an IPO, then the Fair Market Value shall be offer price of the IPO for each Ordinary Share of the Company, multiplied by the number of Ordinary Shares into which each Warrant Share is then convertible, with the exercise of Warrant and issuance of the Warrant Shares shall be deemed to have taken place immediately prior to the closing of the IPO.

The Company will not by amendment of its Articles of Association or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, dissolution, issuance or sale of its securities or any other action, avoid, or seek to avoid, the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all provisions hereof and in taking of all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of the Holder hereunder against any impairment.

Hadasit Bio-Holdings (HBL) and BioTime Complete Shares Swap Transaction in Cellcure Neurosciences
 
As part of the transaction, HBL, which owns 21% of Cellcure's share capital, will sell its entire holdings to BioTime, Inc., In exchange, BioTime will pay $12.75 million in Biotime shares to HBL
 
JERUSALEM, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Hadasit Bio-Holdings Ltd. ("HBL") (TASE: HDST) announced that it has completed a share swap transaction with BioTime, Inc., ("BioTime") (TASE: BTX.TA) in their joint portfolio company Cell Cure Neurosciences ("Cell Cure").

The transaction is the first exit event to HBL since its establishment in 2006.

Cell Cure is a privately held company held by HBL (approximately 21%) with the majority of the shares held by BioTime. Under the terms of the transaction, HBL will sell its entire holdings in Cellcure to BioTime, as well as its interest in certain convertible loans provided by HBL to Cell Cure.

The consideration provided by BioTime in exchange of its Cell Cure shares and loans is approximately $12.75 million, payable by issuance of BioTime shares to HBL at the transaction's closing date.

BioTtime committed to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") a registration statement to register the shares issued by it to HBL as part of the transaction.

HBL reserves the right to buy back up to approximately 5% of Cell Cure shares for a period of five years at a price of $40.5356 per share, so as to benefit from future upside. In addition, If Cell Cure consummates a financing through the issuance of shares during the five year period following closing of the transaction, BioTime committed to ensure that Cell Cure provide HBL with a warrant, to purchase shares of the same type and class as issued in such financing, in an amount equal to 5% of the aggregate amount of Cell Cure's securities issued thereunder, on the same terms of the financing, exercisable during a period of five years commencing on the closing. In the event that Cell Cure fails to issue HBL such warrant(s), BioTime will grant HBL an option to purchase shares of Cell Cure held by it, on the same terms as those mentioned above.

At the closing, the directors appointed to the Board of Directors of Cell Cure by HBL will resign and HBL will be entitled to appoint an observer to Cell Cure's Board of Directors.

HBL expects to reflect in its 2017 financial statements an accounting revenue of approximately $ 9 million (before tax calculation) for the transaction, subject to the completion date thereof.

HBL largest shareholders are Centaurus Investment Ltd and Hadasit, the technology transfer company of the Hadassah Medical Center.

Press Release | Investors & Media | BioTime, Inc.
 
BioTime is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing and commercializing novel therapies developed from what the company believes to be the world's premier collection of pluripotent cell assets. The foundation of BioTime's core therapeutic technology platform is pluripotent cells that are capable of becoming any of the cell types in the human body. Pluripotent cells have potential application in many areas of medicine with large unmet patient needs, including various age-related degenerative diseases and degenerative conditions for which there presently are no cures. Unlike pharmaceuticals that require a molecular target, therapeutic strategies based on the use of pluripotent cells are generally aimed at regenerating or replacing affected cells and tissues, and therefore may have broader applicability than pharmaceutical products. BioTime also has significant equity holdings in two publicly traded companies, Asterias Biotherapeutics, Inc. and OncoCyte Corporation, which BioTime founded and which, until recently, were majority-owned consolidated subsidiaries of BioTime. BioTime also has a significant ownership interest in HBL at 14%.

Press Release | Investors & Media | BioTime, Inc.
 
BioTime is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on developing and commercializing novel therapies developed from what the company believes to be the world's premier collection of pluripotent cell assets. The foundation of BioTime's core therapeutic technology platform is pluripotent cells that are capable of becoming any of the cell types in the human body. Pluripotent cells have potential application in many areas of medicine with large unmet patient needs, including various age-related degenerative diseases and degenerative conditions for which there presently are no cures. Unlike pharmaceuticals that require a molecular target, therapeutic strategies based on the use of pluripotent cells are generally aimed at regenerating or replacing affected cells and tissues, and therefore may have broader applicability than pharmaceutical products. BioTime also has significant equity holdings in two publicly traded companies, Asterias Biotherapeutics, Inc. and OncoCyte Corporation, which BioTime founded and which, until recently, were majority-owned consolidated subsidiaries of BioTime. BioTime also has a significant ownership interest in HBL at 14%.
