Shared Facilities and Services Agreement
April 1, 2013, Asterias and BioTime executed a Shared Facilities and Services Agreement (“Shared Services Agreement”).
Under the terms of the Shared Services Agreement, Asterias has the right to use BioTime’s premises and equipment located
at Alameda, California, for the sole purpose of conducting Asterias’ business. BioTime charges Asterias a fee for the services
and usage of facilities, equipment, and supplies provided under the shared services agreement. For each billing period, BioTime
equitably prorates and allocates its employee costs, equipment costs, insurance costs, lease costs, professional costs, software
costs, supply costs, and utilities costs, if any, between BioTime and Asterias based upon actual documented use and cost by or
for Asterias or upon proportionate usage by BioTime and Asterias, as reasonably estimated by BioTime. Asterias pays 105% of the
allocated costs (the “Use Fee”). The allocated cost of BioTime employees and contractors who provide services is based
upon records maintained of the number of hours of such personnel devoted to the performance of services.
Use Fee is determined and invoiced to Asterias on a quarterly basis for each calendar quarter of each calendar year. If the Shared
Services Agreement terminates prior to the last day of a billing period, the Use Fee will be determined for the number of days
in the billing period elapsed prior to the termination of the Shared Services Agreement. Each invoice is payable in full by Asterias
within 30 days after receipt. Any invoice or portion thereof not paid in full when due will bear interest at the rate of 15% per
annum until paid, unless the failure to make a payment is due to any inaction or delay in making a payment by BioTime employees
from Asterias funds available for such purpose, rather than from the unavailability of sufficient funds legally available for
payment or from an act, omission, or delay by any employee or agent of Asterias.
in turn may charge BioTime or any Other Subsidiary for similar services provided by Asterias at the same rate and terms as aforementioned.
“Other Subsidiary” means a subsidiary of BioTime other than a subsidiary of Asterias.
Shared Services Agreement was renewed through December 31, 2018. The term of the Shared Services Agreement will automatically
be renewed and the termination date will be extended for an additional year each year, unless either party gives the other party
written notice stating that the Shared Services Agreement will terminate on December 31 of that year.
