(g) The exemptive provisions set forth in Rule 101(c)(1) of Regulation M under the 1934 Act (applicable to securities with an average daily trading volume of $1,000,000 that are issued by an issuer whose common equity securities have a public float value of at least $150,000,000) are not satisfied with respect to the Company or the Shares.
(h) Settlement for sales of Shares pursuant to this Section 2 will occur on the third business day that is also a Trading Day following the trade date on which such sales are made, unless another date shall be agreed to by the Company and the Agent (each such day, a “Settlement Date”). On each Settlement Date, the Shares sold through the Agent for settlement on such date shall be delivered by the Company to the Agent following payment of the Net Proceeds from the sale of such Shares in same day funds delivered to an account designated by the Company. Settlement for all Shares shall be effected by book-entry delivery of Shares to the Agent’s account at The Depository Trust Company against payments by the Agent of the Net Proceeds from the sale of such Shares. If the Company shall default on its obligation to deliver Shares on any Settlement Date, the Company shall (i) indemnify and hold the Agent harmless against any loss, claim or damage as incurred, which arises from or as a result of such default by the Company and (ii) pay the Agent any commission to which it would otherwise be entitled absent such default; provided, however that the Company shall not be obligated to so indemnify and reimburse the Agent if the Shares are not timely delivered due to (i) a suspension or limitation in trading in securities generally on Nasdaq or the TASE; (ii) a general moratorium on commercial banking activities declared by either federal or New York State authorities or a material disruption in commercial banking or securities settlement or clearance services in the United States or Israel; (iii) an outbreak or escalation of hostilities or acts of terrorism involving the United States or Israel or a declaration by the United States of a national emergency or war or a material increase in hostilities in Israel; or (iv) any other calamity or crisis or any change in financial, political or economic conditions in the United States or elsewhere.
(i) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Company and the Agent agree that no sales of Shares shall take place, and the Company shall not request the sale of any Shares that would be sold, and the Agent shall not be obligated to sell, during any period in which the Company’s insider trading policy, as it exists on the date of the Agreement, would prohibit the purchases or sales of the Company’s Ordinary Shares by its officers or directors, or during any other period in which the Company is, or could be deemed to be, in possession of material non-public information; provided that, unless otherwise agreed between the Company and the Agent, for purposes of this paragraph (i) such period shall be deemed to end on the date on which the Company’s next subsequent Annual Report on Form 20-F or Current Report on Form 6-K containing the Company’s quarterly financial results is filed with the Commission.
(j) At each Applicable Time, Settlement Date, Registration Amendment Date and each Company Periodic Report Date, the Company shall be deemed to have affirmed each representation and warranty contained in this Agreement. Any obligation of the Agent to use its commercially reasonable efforts to sell the Shares on behalf of the Company as sales agent shall be subject to the continuing accuracy of the representations and warranties of the Company herein, to the performance by the Company of its obligations hereunder and to the continuing satisfaction of the additional conditions specified in Section 6 of this Agreement.
