As a result of the Reorganization (as that term is defined in that certain Stock Purchase Agreement, dated June 28, 2018, by and among the Company, Masthercell Global and GPP-II (the Purchase Agreement)) and as reported in the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 29, 2018) and as of the date of the Transfer Agreement, Masthercell Global owned (i) all of the equity interests (the Israel Sub Equity Interests) of Atvio Biotech Ltd., a company organized under the laws of Israel (Israel Sub) and (ii) 94.12% of the equity interests (the South Korea Sub Equity Interests, and together with the Israel Sub Equity Interests, the Designated Subsidiary Equity Interests) of CureCell Co., Ltd., a Korean stock corporation (South Korea Sub, and together with the Israel Sub, the Designated Subsidiaries).
Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Transfer Agreement, in exchange for the transfer to the Company of all of Masthercell Globals right, title and interest in the Designated Subsidiary Equity Interests, the Company agreed to pay Masthercell Global one dollar ($1.00) . The Transfer Agreement also contains agreements made with respect to certain intercompany loans.
In addition, pursuant to the Transfer Agreement, the Company and Masthercell Global agreed that (i) the Company and its subsidiaries shall cease all use or engagement of any employees or services providers of Masterchell Global or any of its subsidiaries, (ii) Masthercell Global may use the services of the Israel Sub or South Korea Sub for certain subcontracting services on terms and at prices mutually agreed between the Company and Masthercell Global, and (iii) if the Company determines that it needs manufacturing services of the type offered by MaSTherCell S.A.

The Israel Sub and the South Korea Sub also agreed to be bound by certain restrictive covenants contained in the Stockholders Agreement dated as of June 28, 2018, by and among Masthercell Global, GPP-II Masthercell LLC and the Company (the Stockholders Agreement), and it was agreed that each of the Israel Sub and the South Korea Sub shall be able to conduct any business that the Company is permitted to conduct under the Purchase Agreement and the Stockholders Agreement. In addition, it was agreed that after the date of the Transfer Agreement, the Israel Sub and the South Korea Sub shall not be included in any calculation of EBITDA for the purposes of any determination of a Material Underperformance Event under the Stockholders Agreement.

The parties to the Transfer Agreement also agreed that the Term as defined in that certain Management Services Agreement, by and between the Company and Masthercell Global, dated June 28, 2018, shall terminate on June 28, 2020.
