Executive Officers of the Combined Company

 

It is currently expected that the executive officers of BioTime following the Merger will be substantially similar to the current executive officers of BioTime. In addition, following the effective time of the merger BioTime contemplates that certain employees of Asterias will join BioTime as officers of BioTime and thus may become executive officers of BioTime. In the event that new personnel become executive officers of BioTime, certain persons who currently serve as executive officers of BioTime may no longer serve in such capacity. As of the date of this joint proxy statement/prospectus it is not known which Asterias employees, if any, will become executive officers of BioTime and no determinations by BioTime have been made in this regard. Similarly, it is not known which of BioTime’s current executive officers, if any, will cease to serve in such capacity. Any executive officers of BioTime following the completion of the merger will serve in such capacity at the discretion of the BioTime Board. The following table lists the names, ages and positions of the individuals who are currently serving as executive officers of BioTime.
