Director Independence


Of the eight current members of the BioTime Board, six have been determined to be “independent” in accordance with Section 803(A) of the NYSE American Company Guide. These six current BioTime directors are Deborah Andrews, Neal C. Bradsher, Stephen C. Farrell, Michael H. Mulroy, Cavan Redmond, and Angus C. Russell. Brian M. Culley, a current member of BioTime’s board and BioTime’s Chief Executive Officer, is not independent within the meaning of applicable NYSE American Rules. Alfred D. Kingsley does not qualify as “independent” because he receives compensation for serving in an executive role as Chairman of certain of BioTime’s subsidiaries. Prior to the appointment of Don M. Bailey to the BioTime Board, the BioTime Board will determine whether these individuals are independent (as to BioTime) within the meaning of applicable NYSE American Rules, and whether Mr. Bailey is expected to serve as members of BioTime’s audit committee immediately following the completion of the merger meet the additional independence requirements set forth in Rule 10A-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
