PART III NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q,10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
The registrant's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended February 28, 2017 could not be filed by the prescribed due date of April 14, 2017 because the registrant had not yet finalized its accounting treatment and disclosure of certain material events related to the Company's capital raising events that occurred during the quarter. As a result, the preparation of the registrant's financial statements for the three months ended February 28, 2017 is ongoing. Accordingly, the registrant is unable to file such report within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense. The registrant anticipates that the subject quarterly report will be filed on or before April 19, 2017.
PART IV OTHER INFORMATION
|(1)||Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification|
|(Name)||(Area Code)||(Telephone Number)|
Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed ? If answer is no, identify report(s).[ x ] Yes [ ] No
Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof ?[ x ] Yes [ ] No
If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.
For the three months ended February 29, 2016, the registrant had revenues of $1.52 million and a net income of $225 thousand. For the three months ended February 28, 2017, the registrant currently estimates that it had revenues of approximately $1.85 million and a net loss of approximately $9 million. Results for the three months ended February 28, 2017 are preliminary, unaudited and subject to change.
The increase in revenues for the three months ended February 28, 2017 as compared to the 2016 period is primarily attributable to the increase in the volume of services provided and third party sales of consumables by our subsidiary, MaSTherCell, S.A. The increase in the net loss for the three months ended February 28, 2017 as compared to the 2016 period is primarily attributable to the increase of approximately $6.7 million in financial expenses, which is primarily attributable to the calculation of the fair value of outstanding warrants and associated financial liabilities. This is due to the fact that, in the three months ended February 28, 2017, there was a significant impact from the increase in the closing share price of the registrant's common stock, which was $0.80 on February 28, 2017 as compared to $0.39 on November 30, 2016 and $0.33 on February 29, 2016. This increase includes financial income of $1,476 thousand in the 2016 period due to the change in the fair value of the price protection derivative, due to changes in the Registrant's assumptions related to the probability of the anti-dilution mechanism being activated. The increase in net loss is also attributable to an increase of $1.1 million in selling, general and administrative expenses, compared to the prior period due to various items including an increase in stock-based compensation.

The Registrant's actual results may differ materially from the Registrant's anticipated or expected results and the results in the forward-looking statements.
