NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Period Ended September 30, 2020 and 2019

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

a. General

 

Orgenesis Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), is a pioneering global biotech company in the Cell & Gene Therapy (“CGT”) industry focused on unlocking the full potential of its therapeutics products and personalized therapies and closed processing systems with the ultimate aim of providing life-changing treatments to large numbers of patients at reduced costs in a point-of-care setting. It pursues this strategy through a point-of-care platform (“CGT Biotech Platform”) that combines therapeutics, technologies, processes, and systems via a network of collaborative partners, and research institutes and hospitals around the world.

 

The Company’s CGT Biotech Platform consists of: (a) POCare Therapeutics, a pipeline of licensed CGTs, anti-viral and proprietary scientific know-how; (b) POCare Technologies, a suite of proprietary and in-licensed technologies which are engineered to create customized processing systems for affordable point-of-care therapies; and (c) a POCare Network, a collaborative, international ecosystem of leading research institutions and hospitals committed to clinical development and supply of CGTs at the point-of-care (“POCare Network”).

 

The Company is committed to the validation, adoption and development of systems, technologies and processes for mobile processing unit and labs (“OMPUL”). OMPULs are intended to be used and/or distributed through Company’s point of care network of partners, collaborators and joint ventures for the purpose of validation, development, performance of clinical trials, manufacturing and/or processing of potential or approved cell or gene therapy products in a safe, reliable and cost-effective manner. This provides an industrial solution for any clinical institution in the world to provide more therapies at the point of care.

 

By combining science, technology, including its mobile processing units that it is developing, and a collaborative network, the Company believes that it is able to identify the most promising new autologous therapies and provide a pathway for them to reach patients more quickly, more efficiently and in a scalable way, thereby unlocking the power of cell and gene therapy for all patients, thus enabling wide-scale access to these life-changing treatments.

 

The Company had historically also operated a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (“CDMO”) platform, which provided contract manufacturing and development services for biopharmaceutical companies (the “CDMO Business”). On February 2, 2020, the Company entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with GPP-II Masthercell LLC (“GPP” and together with the Company, the “Sellers”), Masthercell Global Inc. (“Masthercell”) and Catalent Pharma Solutions, Inc. (the “Buyer”). Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement, on February 10, 2020, the Sellers sold 100% of the outstanding equity interests of Masthercell (the “Masthercell Business”), which comprised the majority of the CDMO Business, to the Buyer (the “Masthercell Sale”) for an aggregate nominal purchase price of $315 million, subject to customary adjustments. After accounting for GPP’s liquidation preference and equity stake in Masthercell as well as other investor interests in its Belgian subsidiary MaSTherCell, S.A. (“MaSTherCell”), distributions to Masthercell option holders and transaction costs, the Company received approximately $126.7 million. The Company incurred an additional approximately $5.6 million in transaction costs.

 

The Company has determined that the Masthercell Business (“Discontinued Operation”) meets the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation as of the first quarter of 2020. The Discontinued Operation includes the vast majority of the previous CDMO Business, including majority-owned Masthercell, including its subsidiaries Cell Therapy Holdings, MaSTherCell and Masthercell U.S. (collectively, the “Masthercell Global Subsidiaries”) (See Note 3).

 

11

 

 

Since the Masthercell Sale, the Company has entered into restated and updated joint venture agreements with some of its joint venture partners and new joint venture agreements with new partners in various jurisdictions. This has allowed the Company to grow its infrastructure and expand its processing sites into new markets and jurisdictions. In addition, the Company has engaged some of these joint venture partners to perform research and development services to improve the Orgenesis Background IP. It also has allowed the Company the manpower and financial resources to focus on manufacturing and rolling out OMPULs to be used and/or distributed through Company’s point of care network of partners, collaborators and joint ventures.

 

The Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) is the Company’s chief operating decision-maker. Management has determined that effective from the first quarter of 2020, all of the Company’s continuing operations are in the point-of-care business via the Company’s CGT Biotech Platform. Therefore, no segment report has been presented.

 

The Company currently conducts its core CGT business operations through itself and its subsidiaries which are all wholly-owned except as otherwise stated (collectively, the “Subsidiaries”). The Subsidiaries are as follows:

 

United States: Orgenesis Maryland Inc. (the “U.S. Subsidiary”) is the center of activity in North America currently focused on setting up of the POCare Network.
   
European Union: Orgenesis Belgium SRL (the “Belgian Subsidiary”) is the center of activity in Europe currently focused on process development and preparation of European clinical trials.
   
Israel: Orgenesis Ltd. (the “Israeli Subsidiary”) is the center for research and technology, as well as a provider of regulatory, clinical and pre-clinical services, and Atvio Biotech Ltd. (“Atvio”) is a provider of cell-processing services in Israel.
   
Korea: Orgenesis Korea Co. Ltd. (the “Korean Subsidiary”), previously known as CureCell Co. Ltd., is a provider of processing and pre-clinical services in Korea. The Company owns 94.12% of the Korean Subsidiary.

 

These condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Orgenesis Inc. and its subsidiaries, including the U.S. Subsidiary, the Belgian Subsidiary, the Israeli Subsidiary, Atvio and the Korean subsidiary, and the Discontinued Operation.

 

On April 7, 2020, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Tamir Purchase Agreement”) with Tamir Biotechnology, Inc. (“Tamir” or “Seller”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to acquire certain assets and liabilities of Tamir related to the discovery, development and testing of therapeutic products for the treatment of diseases and conditions in humans, including all rights to Ranpirnase and use for antiviral therapy (collectively, the “Purchased Assets and Assumed Liabilities” and such acquisition, the “Tamir Transaction”). The Tamir Transaction closed on April 23, 2020. As aggregate consideration for the acquisition, the Company paid $2.5 million in cash and issued an aggregate of 3,400,000 shares (the “Shares”) of Common Stock to Tamir resulting in a total consideration of $20.2 million. (See Note 6).

 

See Note 10 regarding the material definitive agreement with Koligo Therapeutics Inc.

 

The Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) is listed and traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “ORGS.”

 

As used in this report and unless otherwise indicated, the term “Company” refers to Orgenesis Inc. and its Subsidiaries. Unless otherwise specified, all amounts are expressed in United States Dollars.

 

b. Liquidity

 

As of September 30, 2020, the Company has accumulated losses of approximately $37 Million.

 

12

 

 

On February 10, 2020, the Company received approximately $126.7 million, of which $7.2 million was used for the repayment of intercompany loans and payables, from the Masthercell Sale. In addition, on January 20, 2020, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with certain investors pursuant to which the Company received gross proceeds of approximately $9.24 million before deducting related offering expenses (See Note 4).

 

Based on its current cash resources and commitments, the Company believes it will be able to maintain its current planned development activities and expected level of expenditures for at least 12 months from the date of the issuance of these financial statements. If there are further increases in operating costs for facilities expansion, research and development, commercial and clinical activity or decreases in revenues from customers, the Company may decide to seek additional financing.

 

NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The accounting policies adopted are consistent with those of the previous financial year except as described below.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

The Company considers cash equivalents to be all short-term, highly liquid investments, which include money market instruments, that are not restricted as to withdrawal or use, and short-term bank deposits with original maturities of three months or less from the date of purchase that are not restricted as to withdrawal or use and are readily convertible to known amounts of cash.

 

Discontinued operations

 

Upon divesture of a business, the Company classifies such business as a discontinued operation, if the divested business represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity’s operations and financial results. For disposals other than by sale such as abandonment, the results of operations of a business would not be recorded as a discontinued operation until the period in which the business is actually abandoned.

 

The Masthercell Business divesture qualifies as a discontinued operation and therefore have been presented as such.

 

The results of businesses that have qualified as discontinued operations have been presented as such for all reporting periods. Results of discontinued operations include all revenues and expenses directly derived from such businesses; general corporate overhead is not allocated to discontinued operations. Any loss or gain that arose from the divesture of a business that qualifies as discontinued operations has been included within the results of the discontinued operations. The Company included information regarding cash flows from discontinued operations (See Note 3).

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior years’ financial statements to conform to the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no net effect on previously reported results of operations.

 

Newly issued and recently adopted accounting pronouncements

 

The Company early adopted ASU 2019-12 on January 1, 2020 which did not have a material impact on the Consolidated Financial Statements except for the removal of the exception related to intra-period tax allocations. Commencing from January 1, 2020, the Company followed the general intra-period allocation of tax expenses. The Company had incurred a loss from continuing operations and subsequent to the adoption of ASU 2019-12, the Company determined the amount attributable to continuing operations without regard to the tax effect of other items. The ASU 2019-12 amendment related to the intra-period tax allocation was applied prospectively.

 

13

 

 

Had the Company not adopted ASU 2019-12, an approximately $18.7 million tax benefit would have been recognized along with corresponding decreases to net loss from continuing operations with a corresponding increase in tax expenses and decrease in net income resulting from discontinued operations. The Company had no intra-period tax allocation items in prior years.

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2020-06, Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging-Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40)-Accounting For Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity. The ASU simplifies accounting for convertible instruments by removing major separation models required under current GAAP. Consequently, more convertible debt instruments will be reported as a single liability instrument with no separate accounting for embedded conversion features. The ASU removes certain settlement conditions that are required for equity contracts to qualify for the derivative scope exception, which will permit more equity contracts to qualify for it. The ASU also simplifies the diluted net income per share calculation in certain areas. The new guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2021, and early adoption is permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that this new guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of our consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that may affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, equity, revenues and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, judgments and methodologies. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe are reasonable, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets, liabilities and equity and the amount of revenues and expenses.

 

The full extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may directly or indirectly impact our business, results of operations and financial condition, will depend on future developments that are uncertain, including as a result of new information that may emerge concerning COVID-19 and the actions taken to contain it or treat COVID-19, as well as the economic impact on local, regional, national and international customers and markets. We have made estimates of the impact of COVID-19 within our financial statements, and although there is currently no major impact, there may be changes to those estimates in future periods. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

NOTE 3 – DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

On February 2, 2020, the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement with GPP, Masthercell and the Buyer. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement, Sellers agreed to sell 100% of the outstanding equity interests of Masthercell to Buyer for an aggregate nominal purchase price of $315 million, subject to customary adjustments. The Company has determined that the Masthercell Business meets the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation.

 

On February 10, 2020, the Masthercell Sale was consummated in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement. After accounting for GPP’s liquidation preference and equity stake in Masthercell, as well as SFPI – FPIM’s interest in MaSTherCell, distributions to Masthercell option holders and transaction costs, the Company received approximately $126.7 million at the closing of the Masthercell Sale, of which $7.2 million was used for the repayment of intercompany loans and payables, including $4.6 million of payables to MaSTherCell. Included in this amount is $1.5 million which was deposited into an escrow account in connection with potential adjustments based on working capital and indebtedness at closing. The escrow amount was transferred to the Company at the end of July 2020.

 

Due to the sale of the controlling interest in Masthercell, the Company retrospectively reclassified the assets and liabilities of these entities as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations and included the financial results of these entities (as of the February 10, 2020) in discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Such additional investments may be made in the form of an equity investment for additional shares in the Greek JV Entity, a convertible loan, and/or procured services (the “Additional Investment”), if required (as determined by the board of directors) in order to maintain the activity of the Greek JV Entity or to maintain such party’s pro-rata holding percentage in the share capital of the Greek JV Entity, in any future financing round.

 

The Company may choose to provide the funding required as part of its obligations under the new Greek JVA as well as the Additional Investment by engaging Theracell or the Greek JV Entity to perform activities, and research and development services to create, optimize, improve the Orgenesis Background IP, technology, processes, system, and validation, (“ORGS Procured Services”) in an amount of up to fifteen million US Dollars ($15,000,000).

The parties intend to pursue the Theracell Project through a joint venture (“JV”) by forming a JV entity (the “Greek JV Entity”). Until the Greek JV Entity is formed, all JV activities are being carried out by Theracell.

Tamir Biotechnology, Inc.

 

On April 7, 2020, the Company entered into the Tamir Purchase Agreement with Tamir, pursuant to which the Company agreed to acquire certain assets and liabilities of Tamir related to the discovery, development and testing of therapeutic products for the treatment of diseases and conditions in humans, including all rights to Ranpirnase and use for antiviral therapy. The Tamir Transaction closed on April 23, 2020.

 

23

 

 

As aggregate consideration for the acquisition, the Company paid $2.5 million in cash and issued an aggregate of 3,400,000 shares (the “Shares”) of Common Stock to Tamir resulting in a total consideration of $20.2 million based on the Company’s share price at the closing date. $59 thousand and 340,000 Shares are being held in an escrow account for a period of 18 months from closing to secure indemnification obligations of Tamir pursuant to the terms of the Tamir Purchase Agreement. $4.5 million of the consideration was attributable to research and development related inventory and most of the remaining amount reflected the cost of intangible assets.

 

Included in the purchased assets was the assumption by the Company of a worldwide license to a private company of certain Tamir technologies in the field of treatment, amelioration, mitigation or prevention of diseases or conditions of the eye and its adnexa in return for certain development and sales milestone payments to be paid to Tamir. This license fee and the right to receive future milestone payments (of up to $11 million assuming that certain milestones are reached) and royalties (of up to $35 million based on net sales milestones), were assumed by the Company in connection with the Tamir Purchase Agreement together with a less than 10% share interest. To date, no milestones have been reached.

 

The Company’s acquired right to Tamir’s intellectual property represents a single identifiable asset sourced from the agreement. Because substantially all (more than 90%) of the fair value of the gross assets acquired are concentrated in a single asset being the right to Tamir’s intellectual property and related assets (“IPR&D”), the Company determined that the acquisition is not considered a business in accordance with ASC 805-10-55-5A. Therefore, the Company accounted the transaction as an asset acquisition. The fair value associated with Tamir’s IPR&D in the amount of $19.5 million was charged to research and development expenses under ASC 730. The remaining amount was attributed to the above-mentioned share in a private company, which is presented in the balance sheet as long term “other assets.

During September 2020, the Company paid $50 thousand to the Service Provider. The $500 thousand were recorded in R&D expenses. In addition, the Service Provider granted the Company an exclusive worldwide license to use the EV IP technology for any purpose.

NOTE 10 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

1. Material Definitive Agreement with Koligo Therapeutics Inc.

 

On September 26, 2020, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among the Company, Orgenesis Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (“Merger Sub”), Koligo Therapeutics Inc., a Kentucky corporation (“Koligo”), the shareholders of Koligo (collectively, the “Shareholders”), and Long Hill Capital V, LLC (“Long Hill”), solely in its capacity as the representative, agent and attorney-in-fact of the Shareholders. The Merger Agreement provides for the acquisition of Koligo by the Company through the merger of Merger Sub with and into Koligo, with Koligo surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Merger”). The Merger was announced in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 1, 2020, to which a copy of the Merger Agreement, along with copies of certain other ancillary agreements, were annexed as exhibits. On October 15, 2020 (the “Effective Time”), the Company closed the Merger.

 

Koligo was a privately-held US regenerative medicine company. Koligo’s first commercial product is KYSLECEL® (autologous pancreatic islets) for chronic and acute recurrent pancreatitis. Koligo’s 3D-V technology platform incorporates the use of advanced 3D bioprinting techniques and vascular endothelial cells to support development of transformational cell and tissue products for serious diseases.

 

27

 

 

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, at the Effective Time, the shares of capital stock of Koligo that were issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time were automatically cancelled and converted into the right to receive, subject to customary adjustments, an aggregate of 2,061,713 shares of Company common stock were issued to Koligo’s accredited investors (with certain non-accredited investors being paid solely in cash in the amount of approximately $20 thousand) in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement. In connection with the Merger, the Company assumed an aggregate of approximately $1.9 million of Koligo’s liabilities, which were substantially all of Koligo’s liabilities at the closing of the Merger.

 

The Merger Agreement contains customary indemnification provisions whereby the Shareholders of Koligo will indemnify the Company and certain affiliated parties for any losses arising out of breaches of the representations, warranties and covenants of Koligo and the Shareholders under the Merger Agreement. As partial security for the indemnification and purchase price adjustment obligations of Koligo shareholders under the Merger Agreement, $7 thousand in cash and 328,587 shares of Company common stock of the merger consideration otherwise payable in the Merger to the Shareholders were placed in a third party escrow account. The aggregate indemnification obligations of the Koligo shareholders under the Merger Agreement is capped at the amounts in escrow, subject to certain limited exceptions.

 

In addition, according to the agreement between the parties, the Company has also funded an additional cash consideration of $500 thousand (with $100 thousand of such reducing the ultimate consideration payable to Koligo) for the acquisition of the assets of Tissue Genesis, LLC (“Tissue Genesis”) by Koligo that was consummated on October 14, 2020.

In connection with the Merger Agreement, the Company, Long Hill and Maxim Group LLC (“Maxim”) entered into a Registration Rights and Lock-Up Agreement pursuant to which Long Hill will have one demand registration right to require the registration of the shares of Company common stock received by Long Hill in the Merger and Long Hill and Maxim will have certain piggyback registration rights. In addition, Long Hill agreed with the Company that, during the applicable Restriction Period (as defined below), it shall not sell or transfer, subject to certain limited exceptions, the portion of the shares received in the Merger during the applicable Restriction Period, subject to a limitation on the number of shares sold per any trading day not to exceed 10% of the average daily trading volume of the Common Stock, as reported by Bloomberg Financial L.P. “Restriction Period” means (a) in relation to 70% of all of the shares received in the Merger that Long Hill is entitled to receive under or in connection with the Merger Agreement, the period beginning on the date of the closing and ending on the date that is the four month anniversary thereof, and (b) in relation to the remaining 30% of all of the shares received in the Merger that Long Hill is entitled to receive under or in connection with the Merger Agreement, the period beginning on the date of the closing and ending on the date that is the twelve month anniversary thereof.

 

In addition, pursuant to separate Lock-Up Agreements entered into by the Shareholders other than Long Hill with the Company (the “Shareholders Lock-Up Agreement”), such Shareholders agreed that they will not transfer any of their shares received in the Merger except in accordance with the following lock-up release schedule whereby one fifth of such holder’s respective shares will be released from such restriction every six months, starting six months from the closing of the Merger. Each holder’s sales of such shares are subject to a resale limit of its pro rata portion of 10% of the average daily trading volume, allocated to the Shareholders other than Long Hill pro-rata.

 

The acquisition will be accounted in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification Topic 805, “Business Combinations”. As the acquisition was completed subsequent to September 30, 2020, the consolidated financial statements do not include the results or the financial position of Koligo. Under the disclosure requirements of ASC 805 the Company is required to provide information regarding the effect of the business combination. Because the Company hasn’t completed the work of the purchase price allocation needed under ASC 805, the initial accounting for the business combination was incomplete at the time of the issuance of the financial statements, therefore, the Company did not include the above mentioned information as permitted by ASC 805-10-50-4 and ASC 805-30-50-3.

Corporate Overview

 

We are a pioneering global biotech company in the Cell & Gene Therapy (“CGT”) industry focused on unlocking the full potential of personalized therapies and closed processing systems with the ultimate aim of providing life-changing treatments to large numbers of patients at reduced costs in a point-of-care setting. We pursue this strategy through a point-of-care platform (“CGT Biotech Platform”) that combines therapeutics and technologies via a network of collaborative research institutes and hospitals, and including via its mobile processing units, around the world.

 

We had historically also operated a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (“CDMO”) platform, which provided contract manufacturing and development services for biopharmaceutical companies (the “CDMO Business”). On February 2, 2020, we sold our CDMO Business when we entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with GPP-II Masthercell LLC (“GPP” and together with the Company, the “Sellers”), Masthercell Global and Catalent Pharma Solutions, Inc. (the “Buyer”). Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement, on February 10, 2020, the Sellers sold 100% of the outstanding equity interests of Masthercell Global to Buyer (the “Masthercell Sale”) for an aggregate nominal purchase price of $315 million, subject to customary adjustments. After accounting for GPP’s liquidation preference and equity stake in Masthercell as well as other investor interests in MaSTherCell, distributions to Masthercell Global option holders and transaction costs, we received approximately $126.7 million. We determined that the Masthercell Global business (“Discontinued Operation”) met the criteria to be classified as a discontinued operation as of the first quarter of 2020. The Discontinued Operation includes the vast majority of the previous CDMO Business, including majority-owned Masthercell Global, including its subsidiaries Cell Therapy Holdings S.A., MaSTherCell and Masthercell U.S. (collectively, the “Masthercell Global Subsidiaries”).

CGT Biotech Platform

 

Business Strategy

 

Our CGT Biotech Platform consists of: (a) POCare Therapeutics, a pipeline of licensed CGTs, anti-viral and proprietary scientific know-how; (b) POCare Technologies, a suite of proprietary and in-licensed technologies which are engineered to create customized processing systems for affordable point-of-care therapies; and (c) a POCare Network, a collaborative, international ecosystem of leading research institutions and hospitals committed to clinical development and supply of CGTs at the point-of-care (“POCare Network”). By combining science, technologies and a collaborative network, we believe that we are able to identify the most promising new autologous therapies and provide a pathway for them to reach patients more quickly, more efficiently and in a scalable way, thereby unlocking the power of cell and gene therapy for all patients. Autologous therapies are produced from a patient’s own cells, instead of mass-cultivated donor-cells, or allogeneic cells. Allogeneic therapies are derived from donor cells and, through the construction of master and working cell banks, are produced on a large scale. Autologous therapies are derived from the treated patient and manufactured through a defined protocol before re-administration and generally demand a more complex supply chain. Currently with the CGT market relying heavily on production and supply chain of manufacturing sites, we believe our CGT Biotech Platform may help overcome some of the development and supply challenges with bringing these therapies to patients.

 

In pursuit of this focus, we have been forming key strategic relationships with leading research institutions and hospitals around the world. We are also licensing breakthrough technologies, including via our mobile processing units, which complement our offerings and support our model. As a result, we believe that we now have significant expertise and capabilities across a wide range of therapies and supporting technologies including, but not limited to, Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (“TILs”), CAR-T and CAR-NK, dendritic cell technologies, exosomes and bioxomes and viral vectors. We believe that these capabilities enable us to launch an aggressive push into a wide array of promising new potential therapies.

 

The Company is committed to the validation, adoption and development of systems, technologies and processes for mobile processing unit and labs (“OMPUL”). OMPULs will be used and/or distributed through Company’s point of care network of partners, collaborators and JV’s for the purpose of validation, development, performance of clinical trials, manufacturing and/or processing of potential or approved cell or gene therapy products in a safe, reliable and cost-effective manner. This provides an industrial solution for any clinical institution in the world to provide more therapies at the point of care.

 

By combining science, technology, including its mobile processing units that it is developing, and a collaborative network, the Company believes that it is able to identify the most promising new autologous therapies and provide a pathway for them to reach patients more quickly, more efficiently and in a scalable way, thereby unlocking the power of cell and gene therapy for all patients, thus enabling wide-scale access to these life-changing treatments.

 

We are developing an efficient and streamlined organization, whereby we are able to share both costs and revenues with our partners in order to avoid the historically high development costs associated with CGT drug development. We believe we have developed a truly unique model with the ability to cost-effectively develop and produce CGTs at scale, which we believe has the potential to transform the CGT industry.

 

We consider the following to be the four pillars in order to advance our business strategy under our CGT Biotech Platform:

 

Innovation – This leverages our unique know-how and expertise for industrial processes, operational excellence, process development and optimization, quality control assays development, quality management systems and regulatory expertise.
   
Systems – We are developing cell production cGMP systems utilizing sensor technology and unique systems for biological production, closed system technology for processing cells, proprietary virus/ media technologies and partnerships with key system providers.
   
Cell & Gene Products – We intend to grow our internal asset pipeline consisting of our unique portfolio of immuno-oncology related technologies, anti-viral therapies, MSC and liver-based therapies and secretome-based therapies.
   
Distribution – This is our POCare Network which is designed to enable development, commercialization and distribution of CGTs via the installation of point-of-care systems in major hospitals in key geographies (i.e., Europe, North America, Asia, South America etc.), thereby creating a regional and international system network to serve as our distribution channel.

While our CGT Biotech Platform is currently limited to early stage development to overcome certain industry challenges, we intend to continue developing our global POCare Network, with the goal of developing CGTs via joint ventures with partners who bring strong regional networks. Such networks include partnerships with leading research institutions and local hospitals which allows us to engage in continuous in-licensing of, namely, autologous therapies from academia and research institutes, co-development of hospital and academic-based therapies, and utilization of hospital networks for clinical development of therapies.

 

Our IP portfolio includes trans-differentiation technology licensed by our Israeli Subsidiary. Our development plan calls for conducting additional pre-clinical safety and efficacy studies with respect to diabetes and other potential indications prior to initiating human clinical trials.
