The parties agree as follows:
As used in this Agreement, the following terms, whether used in the singular or plural, shall have the following meanings:
1.1 Affiliate of the Licensee means any entity which, directly or indirectly, Controls the Licensee, is Controlled by the Licensee or is under common Control with the Licensee.
- 2 -
Control means (i) having the actual, present capacity to elect a majority of the directors of such affiliate; (ii) having the power to direct at least fifty percent (50%) of the voting rights entitled to elect directors; or (iii) in any country where the local law will not permit foreign equity participation of a majority, ownership or control, directly or indirectly, of the maximum percentage of such outstanding stock or voting rights permitted by local law.
1.2 Commercially Reasonable Efforts means the diligent efforts and resources, consistent with the normal business practices of Licensee, used for the development of products owned by it or to which it has exclusive rights, which products are at a similar stage in their development or product life and are of similar market potential, taking into account efficacy, safety, regulatory authority approved labeling, the competitiveness of alternative products in the marketplace, the patent and other proprietary position of the product, ability to finance the project, medical and clinical considerations, the likelihood of regulatory approval given the regulatory structure involved, the profitability of the product, including the royalties payable to licensors of patent or other rights, and the costs of development, manufacture and marketing. For clarity, it is understood that the Licensee may, consistent with using Commercially Reasonable Efforts, reduce efforts or application of resources, or halt or delay development, manufacturing and/or commercialization of a Licensed Product to the extent that such actions are consistent with the actions that Licensee would typically take in light of the circumstances with respect to the diligent development of such Licensed Product, such as (without limitation) delay of clinical trials due to a clinical hold being imposed (e.g., due to identification or discovery of clinical safety issues that must be addressed before further research and development activities can resume) or delay in initiating subsequent clinical trials due to efficacy and/or safety issues, until such issues have been resolved, or cessation of manufacturing and marketing a Licensed Product due to safety or applicable commercial issues.
1.3 Combination Product means (a) any pharmaceutical product that consists of a Licensed Product and at least one other active ingredient that is not a Licensed Product; or (b) any combination of a Licensed Product and another pharmaceutical product that contains at least one other active ingredient that is not a Licensed Product where such products are not formulated together but are sold together and invoiced as one product.
1.4 Earned Royalty is defined in Paragraph 7.1.
1.5 Field of Use means all therapeutic and diagnostic fields of use.
- 3 -
1.6 Indexed Milestone is defined in Paragraph 8.2.
1.7 Joint Venture means any separate entity established pursuant to an agreement between a third party and the Licensee and/or Sublicensee to constitute a vehicle for a joint venture, in which the separate entity manufactures, uses, purchases, Sells or acquires Licensed Products from the Licensee or Sublicensee.
1.8 License means the licenses granted in Paragraph 2.
1.9 Licensed Method means any process, art or method the use or practice of which in the relevant country, but for the License, would infringe, or contribute to, or induce the infringement of, any Patent Rights if such Patent Rights were issued and in effect and valid at the time of the infringing activity in that country.
1.10 Licensed Products means Licensed R&D Products and PRPS-2 Products.
1.11 Licensed R&D Product means any product discovered, identified and/or developed using Translational Profiling or any Licensed Method covered by the Translational Profiling Patent Rights (and not in the performance of Licensed Services or pursuant to a Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration) the discovery, identification, development, manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale or import of which in the relevant country of such activity, but for the License, would infringe a Valid Claim of the Translational Profiling Patent Rights. The term Licensed R&D Product shall not include PRPS-2 Products.
1.12 Licensed Service means any service provided for a third party for a set fee consideration (whether in cash or any other form for which a cash value is determinable), when such service involves the practice of Translational Profiling that, but for the License, would infringe a Valid Claim of the Translational Profiling Patent Rights or the use of any Licensed Method covered by a Valid Claim of the Translational Profiling Patent Rights and the Licensee and third party do not enter into a Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration within [***] of providing such service.
1.13 Licensee Financing means the first issuance of equity securities of the Licensee in one transaction or a series of related transactions which is a bona fide financing transaction with gross proceeds to Licensee equal to or more than $16,000,000 (excluding the conversion of any
- 4 -
convertible debt) and in which the proceeds received by Licensee are from investors including, for example, venture capital, private equity, or similar parties.
1.14 Net Sales means, with respect to a Licensed Service or a Licensed Product the gross amount invoiced by Licensee, its Affiliates and any Sublicensee (other than any Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration Partner) for sales of a Licensed Product or Licensed Service to independent third parties, less the following items, but only to the extent that such item actually pertains to the sale of such Licensed Product or Licensed Service (the Deductions):
Net Sales amounts shall be determined from the books and records of Licensee maintained in accordance with GAAP (or at Licensees election, International Financial Reporting Standards), consistently applied.
For Licensed Products which are sold as Combination Products, the Net Sales for such Combination Products shall be adjusted by multiplying the actual Net Sales by the fraction A/(A+B) where A is the actual average of the invoice price (on a per unit basis) of the Licensed Product that is part of the Combination Product in the relevant country, if sold separately, and B is the sum of the actual average of the invoice prices (on a per unit basis) of the other active product or product component that is part of the Combination Product in the relevant country, if such other active product or product component is sold separately. If the other product or product component is not sold separately, then the actual Net Sales shall be adjusted by multiplying the actual Net Sales by the fraction A/C where A is the actual average of the invoice price (on a per unit basis) of the Licensed Product that is part of the Combination Product in the
- 5 -
relevant country, if sold separately, and C is the actual average of the invoice prices (on a per unit basis) of the Combination Product in the relevant country. If neither of the foregoing applies, then the parties shall determine the Net Sales of the Combination Product in good faith based on the respective values of the components of such Combination Product. In the event the parties are not able to reach agreement, Net Sales for such Combination Product shall be determined by an expert jointly appointed by the parties, with such determination to be based on the respective values of the components of such Combination Product. The decision of the expert shall be final and binding on the parties and the fees of the expert shall be equally shared between the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no instance shall the Net Sales based on gross amounts invoiced with respect to the Combination Product in the relevant country be less than the Net Sales based on the actual average of the invoice prices for the Licensed Product if sold separately in such country.
In those instances where Licensed Products are not sold for consideration, of measurable financial value in an arms-length transaction, the Net Sales for such Licensed Product will be calculated based on the gross amounts invoiced less Deductions for other products of the same or similar kind and quality, sold in similar quantities, currently being offered for sale by Licensee or any Sublicensee. Where such similar products are not currently being offered for sale by Licensee or any Sublicensee, the Net Sales for such Licensed Product for the purpose of computing Earned Royalties, will be as available, the average gross selling price or the published gross list price for sales to an unaffiliated third party in an arms length transaction, less Deductions, at which products of the same or similar kind and quality, sold in similar quantities, are then currently being offered for sale by other manufacturers or other parties. Where such products or services are not currently sold or offered for sale by Licensee or any Sublicensee, nor by any other manufacturer or other party, then such Net Sales will be [***] percent ([***]%) of as relevant, the [***], determined according to GAAP .
In those instances in which the Licensee, its Affiliates or the relevant Sublicensee acquires a Licensed Product from one of the other of the Licensee, its Affiliate or such Sublicensee and then subsequently sells such Licensed Product to a third party, Net Sales of such
- 6 -
Licensee, Affiliate or Sublicensee, as the case may be, which sells to a third party, will be calculated upon such sale of such Licensed Product to such third party, and no Earned Royalty will be due to The Regents by the Licensee hereunder with respect to any such earlier intermediate sale of such Licensed Product by or among, as relevant, the Licensee, Affiliate or the relevant Sublicensee. Earned Royalties due to The Regents will be calculated based on Net Sales to such third party.
1.15 Patent Prosecution Costs means the costs of preparing, filing, prosecuting and maintaining all United States and foreign patent applications contemplated by this Agreement and incurred by The Regents, including, without limitation such costs incurred by The Regents prior to execution of this Agreement for the Invention.
1.16 Patent Rights means the Valid Claims of, to the extent assigned to or otherwise obtained by The Regents, the following United States patents and patent applications:
United States Application
United States Patent Number
Filing or Issue Date
2012-205 (PRPS-2 Patent Rights)
2013-017 (Translational Profiling Patent Rights)
Patent Rights shall further include the Valid Claims of, to the extent assigned to or otherwise obtained by The Regents, the corresponding foreign patents and patent applications to the United States patent applications listed above in this Section 1.16 and any reissues, certificates of re-examinations, renewals, extensions, substitutions, continuations, divisionals, and continuation-in-part applications (but only those claims in the continuation-in-part applications that are entitled to the benefit of the priority date of at least one of the above identified applications).
1.17 PRPS-2 Product means any product (including, without limitation, a product discovered, identified, developed or made by practicing a Licensed Method in OTM Case # 2012-205), the discovery, identification, development, manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale or import of which in the relevant country of such activity, but for the License, would infringe a
- 7 -
Valid Claim of PRPS-2 Patent Rights. The term PRPS-2 Product shall not include Licensed R&D Products.
1.18 Sale means the act of selling, leasing or otherwise transferring, providing, or furnishing for use for any consideration. Correspondingly, Sell means to make or cause to be made a Sale and Sold means to have made or caused to be made a Sale.
1.19 Sublicensee means any person or entity (including any Affiliate or Joint Venture) to which any of the license rights granted to the Licensee hereunder are sublicensed, other than a contract manufacturer or contract research organization which is simply performing services on behalf of Licensee.
1.20 Sublicense Fee is defined in Paragraph 6.1.
1.21 Sublicense Revenue means amounts (including, without limitation, any licensing fees, or license maintenance fees, or milestone payments) actually received by the Licensee from any Sublicensee under a sublicense of the Licensees rights under this Agreement, provided that Sublicense Revenues will not include amounts so received by the Licensee that are reasonably and fairly attributable to any of the following to the extent that each is bona fide: (a) [***], (b) [***]; (c) [***]; (d) [***], (e) [***], and (f) [***].
1.22 Translational Profiling means any process, art or method, the use or practice of which in the relevant Country, but for the License, would infringe a Valid Claim of the Translational Profiling Patent Rights, if such relevant Patent Rights were issued and in effect and valid at the time of the infringing activity in such Country.
1.23 Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration means a research and development collaboration with a [***] target or product [***].
1.24 Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration Partner means any person or entity that is the counterparty in the Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration.

- 8 -
Translational Profiling Revenues will not include amounts so received by the Licensee that are reasonably and fairly attributable to any of the following to the extent that each is bona fide: (a) [***], (b) [***]; (c) [***]; (d) [***], (e) [***], and (f) [***].
1.26 Valid Claim means (a) a claim of an issued patent in any country that (i) has not expired; (ii) has not been disclaimed; (iii) has not been cancelled or superseded, or if cancelled or superseded, has been reinstated; and (iv) has not been revoked, held invalid, or otherwise declared unenforceable or not allowable by a tribunal or patent authority of competent jurisdiction over such claim in such country from which no further appeal has or may be taken; or (b) a pending claim of a patent application that is being prosecuted diligently and in good faith.
2.1 Subject to the limitations and other terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement including the license granted to the United States Government set forth in the Background and in Paragraph 2.3.1, The Regents hereby grants to the Licensee a worldwide license under its rights in and to the Patent Rights to discover, have discovered, identify, have identified, research, have researched, develop, have developed, make, have made, use, have used, Sell, have Sold, offer for Sale and import Licensed Products and Licensed Services and to practice Licensed Methods, in the United States and in other countries where The Regents may lawfully grant such licenses, only in the Field of Use.
2.2 Except as otherwise provided for in this Agreement, the License granted under Patent Rights in Paragraph 2.1 is exclusive. The License granted in Paragraphs 2.1 and 2.2 includes the right of Licensee (and Sublicensees) to grant sublicenses through multiple tiers as set forth in Article 3, including, without limitation, pursuant to Translational Profiling R&D Collaborations.
2.3 The License granted in Paragraphs 2.1 and 2.2 is subject to the following:
The obligations to the United States Government under 35 U.S.C. §§ 200-212 and all applicable governmental implementing regulations, as amended from time to time, including the obligation to report on the utilization of the Invention as set
- 9 -
|forth in 37 CFR. § 401.14(h), and all applicable provisions of any license to the United States Government executed by The Regents; and|
the National Institutes of Health Principles and Guidelines for Recipients of NIH Research Grants and Contracts on Obtaining and Disseminating Biomedical Research Resources, 64 F.R. 72090 (Dec. 23, 1999), as amended from time to time.
2.4 The Regents reserves and retains the right (and the rights granted to the Licensee in this Agreement shall be limited accordingly) to make, use and practice the Invention and any technology relating to any of the foregoing and to practice any Licensed Method (and to grant any of the foregoing rights to other educational and non-profit institutions) for non-commercial educational and research purposes, including without limitation, publication and other communication of any research results, and any sponsored research performed for or on behalf of commercial entities so long as no rights to make, use and practice the Invention and any technology related to any of the foregoing and no rights to make and use any Licensed Products and to practice any Licensed Method are granted to the sponsor of such research.
2.5 Because the Invention was made under funding provided by the United States Government, subject to 35 USC §204 Licensed Products, the Invention, and any products embodying the Invention sold in the United States will be substantially manufactured in the United States.
2.6 The parties expressly intend that 35 USC 102 (c) shall apply to this Agreement and that this Agreement shall be considered a joint research agreement as defined in 35 USC 100 (h).
3.1 The Regents also grants to the Licensee the right to sublicense to third parties (including, without limitation, to Affiliates, Joint Ventures and Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration Partners) through multiple tiers and on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis the rights granted to the Licensee hereunder as long as the Licensee has current exclusive rights thereto under this Agreement. Each Sublicensee must be subject to a written sublicense agreement. All sublicenses will include all of the rights of, and will require the performance of all the obligations due to, The Regents (and, if applicable, the United States Government and other sponsors), other than those rights and obligations specified in Article 5 (License Issue Fee) and Paragraph 7.2 (Minimum Annual Royalty) and Paragraphs 19.4 and 19.6 (Reimbursement of
- 10 -
Patent Prosecution Costs). The Licensee shall have the right to permit any Sublicensee to further sublicense any of the rights granted to the Licensee hereunder provided that they adhere to all the terms and conditions required by a Sublicensee under this Agreement. Also, for the avoidance of doubt, Affiliates, Joint Ventures and Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration Partners shall have no licenses under this Agreement unless such Affiliates, Joint Ventures and Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration Partners are granted a sublicense. For the purposes of this Agreement, the operations of all Sublicensees shall be deemed to be the operations of the Licensee, for which the Licensee shall be responsible.
3.2 In the event that The Regents and the Licensee each own an undivided interest in any Patent Rights licensed hereunder, the Licensee will not separately grant a license to any third party under its rights without concurrently granting a license under The Regents rights on the terms and conditions described in this Article 3 (Sublicenses).
3.3 The Licensee will notify The Regents of each sublicense granted hereunder and will provide The Regents with a complete copy of each sublicense and each amendment to such sublicense within [***] of issuance of such sublicense or such amendment. The Licensee will collect from Sublicensees and pay to The Regents all fees, payments, royalties and the cash equivalent of any consideration due The Regents. The Licensee does not guarantee any monies due The Regents from Sublicensees that are not received by the Licensee. Any failure of the Licensee to pay to The Regents any amounts of Net Sales of any Sublicensee before the Licensee receives such amounts from such Sublicensee under the relevant sublicense will not be a breach of the Licensees obligations under this Agreement to pay to The Regents amounts as to Net Sales of such Sublicensee, provided that that Licensee: (i) will not grant any Sublicensee more than [***], after the date on which monies were not paid to The Regents from Licensee for Sublicensees Net Sales, to cure such default, (ii) will use its diligent efforts to obtain such payment from the relevant Sublicensee, (iii) will notify The Regents in writing of any such default within [***] after such default, (iv) will, within [***] after the Licensees receipt of monies due to the Licensee from the relevant defaulting Sublicensee pay to The Regents the amount due hereunder from the Licensee with respect to the Net Sales of such Sublicensee to
- 11 -
which such payment by the Sublicensee to the Licensee relates, and (v) will enact a plan, which will be mutually agreed upon by the Licensee and The Regents within [***] after the Sublicensees failure to cure the default, for addressing such Sublicensees default if such default has not been cured prior to agreement upon or implementation or as relevant, such plan. The Licensee will require Sublicensees to provide it with copies of all progress reports and royalty reports in accordance with the provisions herein and the Licensee will deliver all such reports received by Licensee from Sublicensees to The Regents. Any sublicense or amendment to such sublicense and/or progress reports provided to The Regents hereunder shall be considered the Proprietary Information of Licensee.
3.4 If Licensee licenses patent rights assigned to or otherwise acquired by it (Licensees Patent Rights), and it believes without any specific inquiry, in good faith, that the recipient of such license will infringe Patent Rights in practicing the Licensees Patent Rights, then the Licensee will not separately grant a license to such recipient under Licensees Patent Rights without concurrently granting a sublicense under Patent Rights on the terms required under this Agreement.
3.5 Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason, all sublicenses granted by Licensee shall be assigned to The Regents; provided that The Regents will not be bound by any grant of rights broader than or will not be required to perform any obligation other than those rights and obligations contained in this Agreement. Moreover, The Regents will have the sole right to modify each such assigned sublicense to include all of the rights of The Regents (and, if applicable, the United States Government and other sponsors) that are contained in this Agreement, including the payment of Earned Royalties and Minimum Annual Royalties directly to The Regents by the Sublicensee as if it were the Licensee at a rate that is no lower than the rate set forth in Article 7 (Earned Royalties and Minimum Annual Royalties) in accordance with Article 4 (Payment Terms).
4. PAYMENT TERMS
4.1 Earned Royalties will accrue in each country for the duration of the Valid Claims within the Patent Rights in that country and will be payable to The Regents when Licensed Products or Licensed Services are invoiced, or if not invoiced, when delivered or otherwise exploited by the Licensee or Sublicensee in a manner constituting a Net Sale as defined in Paragraph 1.14.
- 12 -
4.2 The Licensee will pay to The Regents all Earned Royalties, Sublicense Fees and other consideration payable to The Regents semi-annually on or before February 28 (for the six months from July through December of the prior calendar year) and on or before August 31 (for the six months from January through June of the same calendar year). Each payment will be for Earned Royalties, Sublicense Fees and other consideration which has accrued within the Licensees most recently completed six months.
4.3 All consideration due The Regents will be payable and will be made in United States dollars by check payable to The Regents of the University of California or by wire transfer to an account designated by The Regents. The Licensee is responsible for all bank or other transfer charges. When Licensed Products or Licensed Services are Sold for monies other than United States dollars, the Earned Royalties and other consideration will first be determined in the foreign currency of the country in which such Licensed Products or Licensed Services were Sold and then converted into equivalent United States dollars. The exchange rate will be the average exchange rate quoted in the The Wall Street Journal for the purchase of United States dollars during the last thirty (30) days of the reporting period.
4.4 Sublicense Fees and Earned Royalties accrued in any country outside the United States may not be reduced by any taxes, fees or other charges imposed by the government of such country, except those taxes, fees and charges allowed under the provisions of Paragraph 1.14 (Net Sales).
4.5 Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 26 (Force Majeure) if at any time legal restrictions prevent the prompt remittance of Earned Royalties or other consideration owed to The Regents by the Licensee with respect to any country where a sublicense is issued or a Licensed Product or Licensed Service is Sold or otherwise exploited, Licensee will not be in breach of its obligations of payment to The Regents so long as (i) the Licensee has notified The Regents in writing of the legal restriction preventing remittance within [***] after such failure to properly remit payment to The Regents and (ii) the Licensee is enacting a plan, which will be mutually agreed upon by The Regents and Licensee within [***] after The Regents receipt of notice under (i) above, under which Licensee will use diligent efforts to obtain such remittance.
- 13 -
4.6 In the event that any patent or claim thereof included within the Patent Rights is held invalid in a final decision by a court of competent jurisdiction and last resort and from which no appeal has or can be taken, then all obligation to pay royalties based on that patent or claim or any claim patentably indistinct therefrom will cease as of the date of final decision. The Licensee will not, however, be relieved from paying any royalties that accrued before such final decision and the Licensee shall be obligated to pay the full amount of royalties due hereunder to the extent that The Regents licenses one or more Valid Claims within the Patent Rights to the Licensee with respect to Licensed Products or Licensed Services.
4.7 No Earned Royalties will be collected or paid hereunder to The Regents on Licensed Products or Licensed Services Sold to, or otherwise exploited for, the account of the United States Government as provided for in the license to the United States Government. The Licensee, its Sublicensees and Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration Partners will reduce the amount charged for Licensed Products or Licensed Services Sold to, or otherwise exploited by, the United States Government by an amount equal to the Earned Royalty for such Licensed Products or Licensed Services otherwise due The Regents. Such reduction in Earned Royalties will be in addition to any other reductions in price required by the United States Government.
4.8 In the event that License Maintenance Fees, Sublicense Fees, Earned Royalties, Minimum Annual Royalties, Milestone Payments, or reimbursements for Patent Prosecution Costs are not received by The Regents when due, the Licensee will pay to The Regents interest at a rate of [***]percent ([***]%) simple interest per annum. Such interest will be calculated from the date payment was due until actually received by The Regents. Such accrual of interest will be in addition to and not in lieu of, enforcement of any other rights of The Regents due to such late payment.
5. LICENSE ISSUE FEE
The Licensee will pay to The Regents a license issue fee of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) within [***] of the Effective Date. This fee is non-refundable, non-cancelable and is not an
- 14 -
advance or otherwise creditable against any royalties or other payments required to be paid under the terms of this Agreement.
6. PAYMENTS ON SUBLICENSES OR TRANSLATIONAL PROFILING R&D COLLABORATIONS OR LICENSED SERVICES
6.1 The Licensee will pay to The Regents a % of all Sublicense Revenue (Sublicense Fees). Sublicense Fees will be as follows:
For sublicenses granted for PRPS-2 Patent Rights:
[***]% if sublicensed within [***] after the Effective Date
[***]% if sublicensed after [***] after the Effective Date
For sublicenses granted for Translational Profiling Patent Rights in connection with Licensed R&D Products (e.g. not a Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration) for which The Regents is entitled to Earned Royalties:
[***]% if sublicensed within [***] after the Effective Date
[***]% if sublicensed after [***] after the Effective Date
6.2 The Licensee will pay to the Regents [***]% of all Translational Profiling Revenue received by Licensee.
In addition, the Licensee will pay The Regents [***] percent ([***]%) of any payments received by Licensee based on net sales of a Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration Partner for a product discovered, identified or developed by Licensee under a Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration agreement. For clarity, such products exclude Licensed R&D Products and PRPS-2 Products.
- 15 -
For clarity, Licensee shall not owe any additional amounts pursuant to Paragraphs 6.1 or 7 to The Regents for sublicenses which may be granted in connection with a Translational Profiling R&D Collaboration.
6.3 The Licensee will pay to The Regents [***] percent ([***]%) of Net Sales with respect to providing a Licensed Service.
7. EARNED ROYALTIES AND MINIMUM ANNUAL ROYALTIES
7.1 The Licensee or Sublicensee will also pay to The Regents the following earned royalties (Earned Royalties):
[***]% of Net Sales of PRPS-2 Products
[***]% of Net Sales of the first two Licensed R&D Products
7.2 The Licensee will also pay to The Regents a minimum annual royalty of [***] dollars ($[***]) for the life of Patent Rights, [***] during the term of this Agreement.

in the Licensee Financing which shall be equal to or greater than $16,000,000; ii) as if no amount were paid to The Regents pursuant to this section; and iii) after payment to the Licensees preferred shareholders of the aggregate amount of capital invested in the Licensee by such preferred shareholders as determined by the Certificate of Incorporation filed with the Secretary of State of Delaware; provided such payment shall not be greater than one times the aggregate amount of capital invested in the Licensee by such preferred shareholders. The obligation of the Licensee to make a payment on the occurrence of an Indexed Milestone Event shall be a one-time payment obligation and will survive termination or expiration of this Agreement.
For clarity, an example of the amount payable to The Regents in a Change in Control follows: (A-B)/X = Y, where A is the aggregate amount to be paid to Licensees shareholders in the Change in Control, B is the amount invested by Licensees preferred shareholders, X is the number of shares outstanding immediately prior to the Change in Control, and Y is the per share consideration to be received by Licensees shareholders in the Change in Control. Assume that the preferred shareholders of Licensee have invested an aggregate of $45 million, that there are 49,619,561 shares (on an as-converted basis) issued and outstanding immediately after the closing of the first tranche of newly invested funds from external investors in the Licensee Financing which is equal to or greater than $16,000,000, as a result of which 2% would be equal to 992,391 shares, no stock splits or the like have occurred since the closing of the Licensee Financing, the number of shares outstanding immediately prior to the Change in Control is 141,409,405, and the aggregate amount to be paid to Licensees shareholders in the Change in Control is $200 million. In such a circumstance, The Regents would receive (200,000,000-45,000,000)/141,409,405 multiplied by 992,391 or, $1,087,767.85.
8.3 All milestone payments are due to The Regents within [***] of the occurrence of the applicable milestone event.
9. DUE DILIGENCE
9.1 The Licensee, upon execution of this Agreement, will use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to proceed with the development, manufacture and Sale of Licensed Products and in
- 18 -
countries where Regulatory Approval is obtained, to market Licensed Products in quantities sufficient to meet the market demands therefor.
9.2 The Licensee will obtain all necessary governmental approvals in each country where Licensed Products are manufactured, used, Sold, offered for Sale or imported by the Licensee.
9.3 Subject to the provisions of Paragraphs 9.4, 9.5 and 9.6, the Licensee will complete the following diligence milestones (each, a Diligence Milestone) by the applicable date:
9.4 The Regents recognizes that there are uncertainties associated with the development of therapeutic products and the regulatory process required by the FDA (and foreign regulatory authorities that are equivalent to the FDA), and that it may be necessary from time to time to amend the milestones under Subparagraphs 9.3.2 through 9.3.5. Accordingly, Licensee shall have the right to elect [***] to the milestones under Subparagraphs 9.3.2 through 9.3.5, at no cost to the Licensee, if such extensions are a result of causes beyond Licensees direct control or any inaction of any federal or state agency whose approval is required for commercial Sale of Licensed Products. In addition, Licensee shall have the right to elect [***] to the milestones under Subparagraphs 9.3.2 through 9.3.5, provided that Licensee [***] dollars ($[***]) [***]. For clarity, any election to extend a milestone under this Paragraph 9.4 will extend all remaining milestones in Subparagraphs 9.3.2 through 9.3.5 by the applicable time period.
9.5 In the event that after taking such extensions as described above that Licensee is unable to meet one or more of the dates in diligence provisions in Subparagraphs 9.3.2 through 9.3.5 above, then Licensee can request The Regents to restate the dates in the diligence provisions in Subparagraphs 9.3.2 through 9.3.5 above to align with Licensees revised project timelines and The Regents cannot unreasonably withhold such request provided that Licensee demonstrates in
- 19 -
writing its Commercially Reasonable Efforts to meet the diligence milestones above and [***] dollars ($[***]) [***].
9.6 After the occurrence of a Change in Control and upon [***] $[***] (and without the need for Licensee to exercise its rights to extend the milestones under Paragraphs 9.4 or 9.5), the Licensees acquiring party, shall have the right to: (a) elect up to [***] to the milestones under Subparagraphs 9.3.2 through 9.3.5, provided that Licensee pays an [***]dollars ($[***]) [***] for the [***] and [***] dollars ($[***]) [***].
9.7 To exercise the right to terminate the License or to cause the License to become non-exclusive as to all or any of the Patent Rights for the Licensed Product for which the relevant Diligence Milestone was not met, The Regents will give the Licensee written notice of the deficiency. The Licensee thereafter has [***] to cure the deficiency. If The Regents has not received written tangible evidence satisfactory to The Regents that the deficiency has been cured by the end of the [***] period or that steps acceptable to The Regents have been taken by the Licensee to cure such deficiency or deficiencies by the end of such [***] period, then The Regents may, at its option and solely as to the relevant Licensed Products for which the relevant Diligence Milestone was not met, terminate the License immediately without the obligation to provide [***] notice as set forth in Article 13 (Termination by The Regents) or may cause the License to become non-exclusive, in either case by giving written notice to the Licensee of whichever of such determinations has been made by The Regents, and setting forth in such notice the effective date of such termination of the License or of such reduction of the License to non-exclusive status (specifying as to which Patent Rights and Licensed Products such termination or conversion to non-exclusive status has been made), which date of termination or conversion to non-exclusive status, as relevant, will not be prior to the date of such notice.
10. PROGRESS AND ROYALTY REPORTS
10.1 Beginning on March 31, 2014 and each September 30 and March 31 thereafter, the Licensee will submit to The Regents a written progress report as described in Paragraph 10.2 below covering the Licensees (and any Affiliates, Joint Ventures, Sublicensees or Translational
- 20 -
Profiling R&D Collaboration Partners) activities related to the development and testing of all Licensed Products and Licensed Services and related to the obtaining of the governmental approvals necessary for marketing and the activities required and undertaken in order to meet the diligence requirements set forth in Article 9 (Due Diligence). Progress reports are required for each Licensed Product and Licensed Service until the first Sale or other exploitation of that Licensed Product or Licensed Service occurs in the United States and shall be again required if Sales of such Licensed Product or Licensed Service are suspended or discontinued. If either party terminates this Agreement before any Licensed Products or Licensed Services are Sold or before this Agreements expiration, then a final progress report covering the period prior to termination must be submitted within [***] of termination or expiration.
10.2 Progress reports submitted under Paragraph 10.1 shall include, but are not limited to, a detailed summary of the following topics so that The Regents will be able to determine the progress of the development of Licensed Products and Licensed Services and will also be able to determine whether or not the Licensee has met its diligence obligations set forth in Article 9 (Due Diligence) above:
The failure of the Licensee to timely submit a progress report to The Regents under Section 10.1 shall be considered a failure to perform a material term pursuant to Article 13 permitting The Regents to terminate this Agreement as set forth therein (including, for clarity, following notice and an opportunity to cure within [***]).
10.3 The Licensee has a continuing responsibility to keep The Regents informed of the business entity status (small business entity status or large business entity status as defined by the United
- 21 -
States Patent and Trademark Office) of itself, any Affiliates, Joint Ventures, or Sublicensees. The Licensee will notify The Regents of any change of its status or that of any Affiliate, Joint Venture, or Sublicensee within [***] of the change in status of itself or any Affiliate and within [***] of becoming aware of any change in status for a Joint Venture or Sublicensee.
10.4 The Licensee will report to The Regents the date of first Sale or other exploitation of a Licensed Product or Licensed Service in each country in its first progress and royalty reports following such first Sale of a Licensed Product or Licensed Service.
10.5 Beginning with the earlier of (i) the first Sale or other exploitation of a Licensed Product or Licensed Service or (ii) the first transaction that results in Sublicense Fees accruing to The Regents, the Licensee will make semi-annual royalty and Sublicensee Fee reports to The Regents on or before each February 28 (for the six months from July through December of the prior calendar year), and on or before August 31 (for the six months from January through June of the same calendar year). Each royalty and Sublicensee Fee report will cover Licensees most recently completed six months and will, at a minimum, show:
[***], if any;
10.6 If no Sales of Licensed Products and Licensed Services have been made and no Licensed Products and Licensed Services have been otherwise exploited and no Sublicense Revenue is due to the Licensee during any reporting period, then a statement to this effect must be provided by the Licensee in the immediately subsequent Earned Royalty and Sublicense Fee report.
- 22 -
10.7 Any reports or other information delivered to The Regents pursuant this Paragraph 10 shall be considered the Proprietary Information of Licensee.
11. BOOKS AND RECORDS
11.1 The Licensee will keep accurate books and records showing all Licensed Product under development, manufactured, used, offered for Sale, imported, Sold and or otherwise exploited; all Licensed Service Sold or otherwise provided; all Net Sales, all Earned Royalty Income, all Service Income, all Sublicense Revenue and other amounts to be paid to The Regents hereunder; and all sublicenses granted under the terms of this Agreement. Such books and records will be preserved for at least [***] after the date of the payment to which they pertain and will be open to examination by representatives or agents of The Regents at reasonable times to determine their accuracy and assess the Licensees compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
11.2 The Regents shall pay the fees and expenses of such examination. If, however, an error in royalties of more than [***] percent [***]% [***] of the Earned Royalties due for any year is discovered in any examination, then the Licensee shall bear the fees and expenses of such examination and shall remit such underpayment to The Regents within [***] of the examination results.
12. LIFE OF THE AGREEMENT
12.1 Unless otherwise terminated by operation of law, Paragraph 12.2, or by acts of the parties in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, this Agreement will remain in effect from the Effective Date until the expiration or abandonment of the last of the Patent Rights licensed hereunder.
12.2 This Agreement will automatically terminate as permitted under applicable law without the obligation to provide 60 days notice as set forth in Article 13 (Termination By The Regents) upon the filing of a petition for relief under the United States Bankruptcy Code by or against the Licensee as a debtor or alleged debtor.
- 23 -

12.4 The termination or expiration of this Agreement will not relieve the Licensee of its obligation to make any payments owed to The Regents at the time of such termination or expiration and will not impair any accrued right of The Regents, including the right to receive Sublicense Fees and Earned Royalties in accordance with Articles 6 (Payments on Sublicenses), 7 (Earned Royalties and Minimum Annual Royalties), 8 (Milestone Payments) and 15 (Disposition of Licensed Products and Licensed Services Upon Termination or Expiration).
13. TERMINATION BY THE REGENTS
If the Licensee fails to perform or violates any material term of this Agreement required to be performed by Licensee, then The Regents may give written notice of such default (Notice of Default) to the Licensee. If the Licensee fails to repair such default within sixty (60) days after the effective date of such notice, then The Regents will have the right to immediately terminate this Agreement and the License by providing a written notice of termination (Notice of Termination) to the Licensee.
- 24 -
14. TERMINATION BY LICENSEE
The Licensee has the right at any time to terminate this Agreement by providing a Notice of Termination to The Regents. Moreover, the Licensee will be entitled to terminate the rights under Patent Rights on a claim-by-claim, patent-by-patent and country-by-country basis by giving notice in writing to The Regents. Termination of this Agreement (but not termination of any patents or patent applications under Patent Rights, which termination is subject to Paragraph 19.6) will be effective sixty (60) days from the effective date of such notice.
15. DISPOSITION OF LICENSED PRODUCT AND LICENSED SERVICES UPON TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION
15.1 Upon termination (but not expiration) of this Agreement, within a period of [***] after the date of termination, the Licensee is entitled to (i) dispose of all previously made or partially made Licensed Product, but no more and (ii) provide previously contracted-for Licensed Services, provided that the Sale or use of such Licensed Product and the provision of such Licensed Services are subject to the terms of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, the rendering of reports and payment of Earned Royalties, Sublicense Fees and any other payments therefor required under this Agreement. The Licensee will not otherwise make, use, Sell, offer for Sale or import Licensed Products or Licensed Services, or practice the Licensed Method after the date of termination.
15.2 If applicable Patent Rights exist at the time of any making, Sale, offer for Sale, or import of a Licensed Product or the time of any Sale, offer for Sale, or rendering of a Licensed Service, then Earned Royalties shall be paid at the times provided herein and royalty reports shall be rendered in connection therewith, notwithstanding the absence of applicable Patent Rights with respect to such Licensed Product or Licensed Service at any later time. Otherwise, no Earned Royalties shall be paid on the Sales of such product or service. Any fees or other payments owed to The Regents at the time of expiration not based on the Sales of a Licensed Product or Licensed Service will be paid to The Regents at the time such fee or other payment would have been due had this Agreement not expired.
- 25 -
16. USE OF NAMES AND TRADEMARKS
Except as provided in this Article 16 below, nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed as conferring any right to either party to use in advertising, publicity or other promotional activities any name, trade name, trademark or other designation of the other party (including a contraction, abbreviation or simulation of any of the foregoing). Without the Licensees consent case-by-case, The Regents may list Licensees name as a licensee of technology from The Regents without further identifying the technology. Unless required by law or unless consented to in writing by Executive Director, Office of Technology Transfer of The Regents, the use by the Licensee of the name The Regents of the University of California or the name of any campus of the University of California in advertising, publicity or other promotional activities is expressly prohibited.
17. LIMITED WARRANTY
17.1 The Regents warrants to the Licensee that, as of the Effective Date, (i) it has the full authority, right and power to enter into this Agreement and to grant the License; (ii) it has the right, title and interest necessary and appropriate to grant the License; and (iii) based on a thorough review of a) the files relating to rights granted under master agreements with for-profit companies administered by the Office of Technology Management and b) the disclosure reports filed by the inventors of the Patent Rights, it has not previously entered into any agreement to license or otherwise grant rights to use any of the Patent Rights.
17.2 Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the License and the associated Invention, Patent Rights, Licensed Products, Licensed Services and Licensed Methods are provided by The Regents WITHOUT WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. THE REGENTS MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT THE INVENTION, PATENT RIGHTS, LICENSED PRODUCTS, LICENSED SERVICES, LICENSED METHODS OR WILL NOT INFRINGE ANY PATENT, COPYRIGHT, TRADEMARK OR OTHER RIGHTS.
17.3 This Agreement does not:
- 26 -
express or imply a warranty or representation as to the validity, enforceability, or scope of any Patent Rights; or
express or imply a warranty or representation that anything made, used, Sold, offered for Sale or imported or otherwise exploited under any license granted in this Agreement is or will be free from infringement of patents, copyrights, or other rights of third parties; or
obligate The Regents to bring or prosecute actions or suits against third parties for patent infringement except as provided in Article 21 (Patent Infringement); or
confer by implication, estoppel or otherwise any license or rights under any patents or other rights of The Regents other than Patent Rights, regardless of whether such patents are dominant or subordinate to Patent Rights; or
obligate The Regents to furnish any new developments, know-how, technology or information not provided in Patent Rights.

18.2 EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN ARTICLE 22 (INDEMNIFICATION), THE LICENSEE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOST PROFITS, LOST BUSINESS, ENHANCED DAMAGES OR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER SPECIAL DAMAGES SUFFERED BY THE REGENTS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT FOR ALL CAUSES OF ACTION OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING TORT, CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY AND
- 27 -
BREACH OF WARRANTY) EVEN IF THE LICENSEE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
19. PATENT PROSECUTION AND MAINTENANCE
19.1 As long as the Licensee has paid Patent Prosecution Costs as provided for in this Article 19 (Patent Prosecution and Maintenance), The Regents will diligently prosecute and maintain the United States and foreign patents comprising the Patent Rights using counsel of its choice (taking into account Licensees suggestions regarding such choice of counsel). The Regents counsel will take instructions only from The Regents. The Regents will provide the Licensee with copies of all relevant documentation reasonably in advance of any deadline for filing a response so that the Licensee will be informed of the continuing prosecution and would have an opportunity to comment upon such documentation, including the ability to discuss strategy on the Patent Rights directly with The Regents counsel, provided, however, that if the Licensee has not commented upon such documentation in a reasonable time for The Regents to sufficiently consider the Licensees comments prior to a deadline with the relevant government patent office, or The Regents must act to preserve the Patent Rights, The Regents will be free to respond without consideration of the Licensees comments, if any. The Licensee agrees to keep this documentation confidential as provided for in Article 31 (Confidentiality).
19.2 The Regents shall use reasonable efforts to accommodate all reasonable requests by Licensee, including to amend any patent application to include claims reasonably requested by the Licensee to protect the products and services contemplated to be Sold, or the Licensed Method to be practiced, under this Agreement.
19.3 The Licensee will use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to facilitate the application for an extension of the term of any patent included within the Patent Rights if appropriate under the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 and/or European, Japanese and other foreign counterparts of this Law. The Licensee shall prepare all related documents and The Regents agrees to execute the documents and to take additional action as the Licensee reasonably requests in connection therewith [***].
- 28 -
19.4 The Licensee will bear all Patent Prosecution Costs, subject to the remainder of this Paragraph 19.4. Patent Prosecution Costs billed by The Regents counsel will be rebilled to the Licensee and are due within [***] of rebilling by The Regents. In the event that The Regents believes there is a need for patentability opinions, re-examination, re-issue, interferences, oppositions or inventorship determinations, then the parties will meet and discuss in good faith the need for such actions and associated costs. Patent Prosecution Costs incurred by The Regents prior to the Effective Date equal approximately [***] dollars ($[***] and will be paid by Licensee within [***] after the closing of the Licensee Financing.
19.5 The Licensee may request that The Regents obtain patent protection on the Invention in foreign countries, if available and if the Licensee so desires. The Regents will inform the Licensee of the deadlines for payment, filing or action to be taken to obtain patent protection on the Invention in foreign countries and the Licensee will notify The Regents of its decision to obtain or maintain foreign patents not less than [***] prior to the deadline for any payment, filing or action to be taken in connection therewith or, if The Regents informs the Licensee of a deadline less than [***] prior to such deadline, as soon as reasonably practicable. This notice concerning foreign filing must be in writing, must identify the countries desired and must reaffirm the Licensees obligation to pay the Patent Prosecution Costs thereof. The absence of such a notice from the Licensee to The Regents will be considered an election not to obtain or maintain foreign Patent Rights.
19.6 The Licensee will be obligated to pay any Patent Prosecution Costs incurred during the [***] period after receipt by either party of a Notice of Termination when such costs are either incurred before the Notice of Termination was received or otherwise related to the termination, even if the invoices for such Patent Prosecution Costs are received by the Licensee after the end of the [***] period following receipt of a Notice of Termination. The Licensee may terminate its obligation to pay Patent Prosecution Costs with respect to any given claim within a given patent application or patent under Patent Rights in any or all designated countries upon [***] written notice to The Regents. The Regents may continue prosecution and/or maintenance of such claim(s), application(s) or patent(s) at its sole discretion and expense, provided, however, that the
- 29 -
Licensee will have no further right or licenses thereunder. Non-payment of Patent Prosecution Costs may be deemed by The Regents as an election by the Licensee not to maintain such application(s) or patent(s).
19.7 The Regents may file, prosecute or maintain patent applications or patents at its own expense in any country in which the Licensee has not elected to file, prosecute or maintain patent applications or patents in accordance with this Article 19 (Patent Prosecution and Maintenance) and those applications and resultant patents will not be subject to this Agreement, unless Licensee reimburses The Regents for all Patent Prosecution Costs associated with such applications and resultant patents.
20. PATENT MARKING
The Licensee will mark all Licensed Products made, used or Sold under the terms of this Agreement or their containers in accordance with the applicable patent marking laws.
21. PATENT INFRINGEMENT
21.1 In the event that The Regents (to the extent of the actual knowledge of the licensing professional responsible for the administration of this Agreement) or the Licensee learns of infringement of potential commercial significance of any Patent Rights licensed under this Agreement, the knowledgeable party will provide the other (i) with written notice of such infringement and (ii) with any evidence of such infringement available to it (the Infringement Notice). During the period in which, and in the jurisdiction where, the Licensee has exclusive rights under this Agreement, neither The Regents nor the Licensee will notify a possible infringer of infringement or put such infringer on notice of the existence of any Patent Rights without first obtaining consent of the other. If the Licensee puts such infringer on notice of the existence of any Patent Rights with respect to such infringement without first obtaining the written consent of The Regents and if a declaratory judgment action is filed by such infringer against The Regents, then Licensees right to initiate a suit against such infringer for infringement under Paragraph 21.2 below will terminate immediately without the obligation of The Regents to provide notice to the Licensee. The parties shall consult with each other regarding such infringement and both The Regents and the Licensee will use their diligent efforts to cooperate with each other to terminate such infringement without litigation.
- 30 -
21.2 If infringing activity of potential commercial significance by the infringer has not been abated within ninety (90) days following the date of an Infringement Notice, then the Licensee may institute suit for patent infringement against the infringer. The Regents may voluntarily join such suit at its own expense, but may not otherwise commence suit against the infringer for the acts of infringement that are the subject of the Licensees suit or any judgment rendered in that suit. The Licensee may not join The Regents as a party plaintiff in a suit initiated by the Licensee, without The Regents prior written consent and, subject to the approval of the UC Board of Regents. The Regents agrees it will make reasonable efforts to ensure a timely response from the Regents if approval is requested. If, in a suit initiated by the Licensee, The Regents is involuntarily joined other than by the Licensee, then the Licensee will pay any costs incurred by The Regents arising out of such suit, including but not limited to, any legal fees of counsel that The Regents selects and retains to represent it in the suit.
21.3 If, within a hundred and twenty (120) days following the date of an Infringement Notice, infringing activity of potential commercial significance by the infringer has not been abated and if the Licensee has not brought suit against the infringer, then The Regents may institute suit for patent infringement against the infringer. If The Regents institutes such suit, then the Licensee may not join such suit without The Regents consent and may not thereafter commence suit against the infringer for the acts of infringement that are the subject of The Regents suit or any judgment rendered in that suit.
21.4 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, in the event that the infringement or potential infringement pertains to an issued patent included within the Patent Rights and written notice is given under the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 (and/or foreign counterparts of this Law), then the party in receipt of such notice under the Act (in the case of The Regents to the extent of the actual knowledge of the licensing officer responsible for the administration of this Agreement) shall provide the Infringement Notice to the other party promptly. If the time period is such that the Licensee will lose the right to pursue legal remedy for infringement by not notifying a third party or by not filing suit, the notification period and the time period to file suit set forth above will be shortened to permit Licensee to maintain its rights under the requirements under the Act.
21.5 Any recovery or settlement received in connection with any suit will first be shared by The Regents and the Licensee equally to cover any litigation costs each incurred and next shall
- 31 -
be paid to The Regents or the Licensee to cover any litigation costs it incurred in excess of the litigation costs of the other. In any suit initiated by the Licensee, any recovery in excess of litigation costs will be shared between Licensee and The Regents as follows: (a) for any recovery other than amounts paid for willful infringement: (i) The Regents will receive [***] percent [***]% [***] of the recovery if The Regents was not a party in the litigation and did not incur any litigation costs, (ii) The Regents will receive [***] percent [***]% [***] of the recovery if The Regents was a party in the litigation whether joined as a party under the provisions of Paragraph 21.2 or otherwise, but The Regents did not incur any litigation costs, and (iii) The Regents will receive [***] percent [***]% [***] of the recovery if The Regents incurred any litigation costs in connection with the litigation; and (b) for any recovery for willful infringement, The Regents will receive [***] percent [***]% [***] of the recovery. In any suit initiated by The Regents, any recovery in excess of litigation costs will belong to The Regents. The Regents and the Licensee agree to be bound by all determinations of patent infringement, validity and enforceability (but no other issue) resolved by any adjudicated judgment in a suit brought in compliance with this Article 21 (Patent Infringement).
21.6 Any agreement made by the Licensee for purposes of settling litigation or other dispute shall comply with the requirements of Article 3 (Sublicenses) of this Agreement.
21.7 Each party will cooperate with the other in litigation proceedings instituted hereunder but at the expense of the party who initiated the suit (unless such suit is being jointly prosecuted by the parties).
21.8 Any litigation proceedings will be controlled by the party bringing the suit, except that The Regents may be represented by counsel of its choice in any suit brought by the Licensee.
22.1 The Licensee will, and will require its Sublicensees to, indemnify, hold harmless and defend The Regents, the sponsors of the research that led to the Invention, and the inventors of any invention claimed in patents or patent applications under Patent Rights (including the Licensed Products, Licensed Services and Licensed Methods contemplated thereunder) and their
- 32 -
employers, and the officers, employees and agents of any of the foregoing (collectively, the Regents Indemnitees), against any and all claims, suits, losses, damage, costs, fees and expenses resulting from, or arising out of, the exercise of the License by Licensee or an Affiliate or of any sublicense by a Sublicensee (collectively, Claims). This indemnification will include, but not be limited to, any product liability. The previous sentence will not apply to any Claim that is determined with finality by a court of competent jurisdiction to result solely from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of The Regents or any Regents Indemnitee. If The Regents, in its sole discretion, believes that there will be a conflict of interest or it will not otherwise be adequately represented by counsel chosen by the Licensee to defend The Regents in accordance with this Paragraph 22.1, then The Regents may retain counsel of its choice to represent it and [***].
22.2 The Licensee, at its sole cost and expense, will insure its activities in connection with any work performed hereunder and will obtain, keep in force, and maintain the following insurance:
Commercial Form General Liability Insurance (contractual liability included) with limits as follows prior to first dosing of a Licensed Product in humans:
General Aggregate (commercial form only)
As of the time of administration of first dosing of a Licensed Product in humans, the insurance limits shall be as follows:
Products/Completed Operations Aggregate
Personal and Advertising Injury
General Aggregate (commercial form only)
- 33 -
As of the time of First Sale of a Licensed Product, the insurance limits shall be as follows:
Products/Completed Operations Aggregate
Personal and Advertising Injury
General Aggregate (commercial form only)
If the above insurance is written on a claims-made form, it shall continue for [***] following termination or expiration of this Agreement. The insurance shall have a date of placement prior to or coinciding with the Effective Date of this Agreement; and
Workers Compensation as legally required in the jurisdiction in which the Licensee is doing business.
22.3 The coverage and limits referred to in Paragraph 22.2.1 and 22.2.2 above will not in any way limit the liability of the Licensee under this Article 22 (Indemnification). Upon the execution of this Agreement, the Licensee will furnish The Regents with certificates of insurance evidencing compliance with all requirements. Such certificates will:
Provide for [***] advance written notice to The Regents of any cancellation of insurance coverage; the Licensee will promptly notify The Regents of any material modification of the insurance coverage;
Indicate that The Regents has been endorsed as an additional insured under the coverage described above in Paragraph 22.2.1; and
Include a provision that the coverage will be primary and will not participate with, nor will be excess over, any valid and collectable insurance or program of self-insurance maintained by The Regents.
22.4 The Regents will promptly notify the Licensee in writing of any claim or suit brought against The Regents for which The Regents intends to invoke the provisions of this Article 22 (Indemnification). The Licensee will keep The Regents informed of its defense of any claims pursuant to this Article 22 (Indemnification).
- 34 -
23.1 Any notice or payment required to be given to either party under this Agreement will be in writing and will be deemed to have been properly given and to be effective as of the date specified below if delivered to the respective address given below or to another address as designated by written notice given to the other party:

26. FORCE MAJEURE
26.1 Except for the Licensees obligation to make any payments to The Regents hereunder, the parties shall not be responsible for any failure to perform due to the occurrence of any events beyond their reasonable control which render their performance impossible or onerous, including, but not limited to: accidents (environmental, toxic spill, etc.); acts of God; biological or nuclear incidents; casualties; earthquakes; fires; floods; governmental acts; orders or restrictions; inability to obtain suitable and sufficient labor, transportation, fuel and materials; local, national or state emergency; power failure and power outages; acts of terrorism; strike; and war.

27.1 The Licensee hereby grants to The Regents the right to purchase an amount of New Securities which the Licensee may, from time to time, propose to sell and issue after the date of
- 36 -
this Agreement, subject to the terms and conditions of this Paragraph 27, that is equal to [***] percent ([***]%) of the total number of shares of stock of the Licensee (on an as-converted basis) issued and outstanding immediately after the Applicable Closing, as defined below, of the Licensee Financing divided by the fully diluted capitalization of Licensee at the time such New Securities are offered by Licensee (taking into account all outstanding shares of stock of the company on an as converted to Common Stock and all other shares of other convertible securities, rights, options or warrants then outstanding, on an as exercised and as converted to Common Stock basis, and all shares of Common Stock held in reserve in any of Licensees equity incentive plans that are not then yet allocated for outstanding and unexercised stock options), which resulting fraction is multiplied by the total number of shares (or units, as applicable) of New Securities being offering by Licensee in such offering. As used herein, the Applicable Closing shall mean: (i) the first tranche closing of the Licensee Financing for the period after the first tranche closing and prior to the second tranche closing of the Licensee Financing; (ii) the second tranche closing of the Licensee Financing for the period after the second tranche closing and prior to the third tranche closing of the Licensee Financing; and (iii) the third tranche closing of the Licensee Financing for the period after the third tranche closing of the Licensee Financing.
27.2 This right shall be subject to the following provisions:
27.2.1 New Securities shall mean any capital stock (including Common Stock and/or Preferred Stock) of the Licensee whether now authorized or not, and rights, convertible securities, options or warrants to purchase such capital stock, and securities of any type whatsoever that are, or may become, exercisable or convertible into capital stock; provided that the term New Securities does not include (i) any securities that are not deemed to be Additional Stock pursuant to Article IV, Section B.4(d)(iii) of the Licensees Certificate of Incorporation (as in effect from time to time) or (ii) any shares of Preferred Stock issued pursuant to the Licensee Financing.
- 37 -
In the event the Licensee proposes to undertake an issuance of New Securities, it shall give The Regents written notice of its intention, describing the type of New Securities, and their price and the general terms upon which the Licensee proposes to issue the same. The Regents shall have 15 days after any such notice is mailed or delivered to agree to purchase [***] percent ([***]%) (or such lesser amount as desired) of such New Securities for the price and upon the terms specified in the notice by giving written notice to the Licensee and stating therein the quantity of New Securities to be purchased, if any. The Licensee shall have 45 days thereafter to sell or enter into an agreement (pursuant to which the sale of New Securities covered thereby shall be closed, if at all, within 20 days from the date of said agreement) to sell the New Securities, at a price and upon terms no more favorable to the purchasers thereof than specified in the Licensees notice to The Regents delivered pursuant to this Paragraph 27.2.2. In the event the Licensee enters into an agreement to sell such New Securities within such 45 day period, or sells such New Securities within such 20 day period following the date of said agreement, the Licensee shall not thereafter issue or sell any New Securities, without first again offering such securities to The Regents in the manner provided in this Paragraph 27.2.2.
The right granted under this Paragraph 27 shall expire immediately prior to an Indexed Milestone Event.

31.5 Upon termination of this Agreement, the Licensee and The Regents will destroy or return any of the disclosing partys Proprietary Information in its possession within [***] following the termination of this Agreement; provided this obligation shall not require the deletion or destruction of back-up tapes which may contain Proprietary Information.
