Sales of Licensed Products by an Invoicing Party to an Affiliate of such Invoicing Party, for resale by such Affiliate, shall not be deemed Net Sales and Net Sales shall be determined based on the total amount invoiced or billed by such Affiliate on resale to an independent third party purchaser (including but not limited to distributors, wholesalers and end-users of Products).

  2.4.2.           Sublicense Agreements.  Sublicenses shall only be granted pursuant to written agreements which shall be consistent with the terms of the present Agreement (except that the royalty rates may be different than those set forth in this Agreement).  BioLine shall provide Licensor with a copy of (i) the proposed final draft of each sublicense agreement into which it enters for Licensor’s review fifteen (15) days prior to the contemplated date of execution thereof, it being recognized that due to the nature of commercial negotiations such draft may be subject to change immediately prior to the execution thereof and BioLine may not be able to provide Licensor with such absolute final draft prior to execution, and (ii) the final executed version of each sublicense agreement into which it enters thirty (30) days of receipt of an executed draft thereof from the Sublicensee.  For avoidance of doubt, it is hereby clarified that should the final executed version include material changes from the proposed final draft provided to Licensor for review pursuant to the foregoing, BioLine shall specifically notify Licensor of such material changes prior to execution.  In addition, should any such Sublicense be written in a language other than English or French, BioLine shall provide Licensor with an English translation of the Sublicense certified in accordance with Section 13.14.  Each such sublicense agreement shall contain, inter alia, provisions to the following effect:
 
2.4.2.1. All provisions necessary to ensure BioLine’s ability to perform its obligations under this Agreement, including reporting and audit requirements;

2.4.2.2. Any Sublicense shall contain provisions confirming the reserved rights as provided in Section 2.2, and the rights of Licensor as provided in Section 2.3, and shall also include reasonable diligence obligations (as determined by BioLine having reference to the scope of the rights that are the subject of such Sublicense).

2.4.2.3. In the event of termination of the license set forth in Section 2.1 above, any existing agreements that contain a Sublicense of, or other grant of right with respect to the Invention or the Licensed Patents, shall terminate to the extent of such Sublicense or other grant of right; provided, however, that, for each Sublicensee, upon termination of the Sublicense agreement with such Sublicensee, if the Sublicensee is not then in breach of such Sublicense agreement with BioLine such that BioLine would have the right to terminate such Sublicense and that such Sublicensee desires to keep its rights to use the Invention or the Licensed Patents, subject to Sublicensee’s undertaking to indemnify Licensor as provided in Section 11 of the present Agreement, Licensor shall be obligated, at its discretion, to either (i) take over the Sublicense, or (ii) enter into a new agreement with such Sublicensee on substantially the same terms as those contained in such Sublicense agreement; and provided, further, that such terms shall be amended, if necessary, to the extent required to ensure that such Sublicense agreement does not impose any obligations or liabilities on Licensor which are not included in this Agreement.  For the avoidance of doubt, and without limiting the generality of the above, the exclusion of warranties and the limitations of representations herein stated shall be applicable to the Sublicense that would be effective between the Licensor and the Sublicensee and in no event shall Licensor be responsible or liable for any cost, payment of any kind (including for damages), act, action, obligation, collaboration or assistance if such is not expressly stated in this Agreement as being the responsibility of the Licensor.

  2.4.3.           A Sublicensee shall be entitled to sublicense its rights under a Sublicense agreement, and so forth through a chain of sublicenses, provided that each such sublicense shall be subject to the terms specified in Section 2.4.1 above.

2.5.           Contractors and Affiliates.  BioLine shall have the right to utilize third party contractors or Affiliates in connection with BioLine’s activities in exploiting the license granted hereunder.  Provided that such contractors or Affiliates perform activities on BioLine’s behalf, and BioLine maintains control of and remains solely responsible for such activities, the provisions of Section 2.4 shall not apply with respect to such contractors or Affiliates.  For the avoidance of doubt, sublicenses to Affiliates of BioLine shall not be considered Sublicenses under this Agreement, provided however that (i) each such Affiliate to whom BioLine grants any rights on the Invention or on the Licensed Patents under the present Agreement shall be considered as a licensee and shall abide by the terms and conditions of the present Agreement, (ii) BioLine undertakes to diligently inform Licensor of the identity of each Affiliate that has been granted such rights and the nature and scope of such rights, and (iii) BioLine shall obtain from such Affiliate a written undertaking to abide by the terms and conditions of the present Agreement with a copy to Licensor of such undertaking.  BioLine shall be responsible for ensuring that any such Affiliate shall abide by the terms and conditions of the present Agreement.

  9.1.2.            Suit by BioLine.  BioLine shall have the right, but not the obligation, to take action in the prosecution, prevention, or termination of any Infringement.  Should BioLine elect to bring suit against an infringer and Licensor is joined as party plaintiff in any such suit, Licensor shall have the right to approve the counsel selected by BioLine to represent BioLine and Licensor, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.  The expenses of such suit or suits that BioLine elects to bring, including any expenses of Licensor incurred in conjunction with the prosecution of such suits or the settlement thereof, shall be paid for entirely by BioLine and BioLine shall hold Licensor free, clear and harmless from and against any and all costs of such litigation, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.  BioLine shall not compromise or settle such litigation without the prior written consent of Licensor, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  In the event BioLine exercises its right to sue pursuant to this Section 9.1.2, it shall first reimburse itself out of any sums recovered in such suit or in settlement thereof for all costs and expenses of every kind and character, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, necessarily involved in the prosecution of any such suit.  If, after such reimbursement, any funds shall remain from said recovery, then Licensor shall receive an amount equal to twenty-five percent (25%) of such funds and the remaining seventy-five percent (75%) of such funds shall be retained by BioLine.
 
 9.1.3.           Suit by Licensor. If BioLine does not take action in the prosecution, prevention, or termination of any Infringement pursuant to Section 9.1.2 above, and has not commenced negotiations with the infringer for the discontinuance of said Infringement, within ninety (90) days after receipt of notice to BioLine by Licensor of the existence of an Infringement, Licensor may elect, at its sole and complete discretion, to do so.  Should Licensor elect to bring suit against an infringer and BioLine is joined as party plaintiff in any such suit, BioLine shall have the right to approve the counsel selected by Licensor to represent Licensor and BioLine, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.  The expenses of such suit or suits that Licensor elects to bring, including any expenses of BioLine incurred in conjunction with the prosecution of such suits or the settlement thereof, shall be paid for entirely by Licensor and Licensor shall hold BioLine free, clear and harmless from and against any and all costs of such litigation, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.  Licensor shall not compromise or settle such litigation without the prior written consent of BioLine, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  In the event Licensor exercises its right to sue pursuant to this Section 9.1.3, it shall first reimburse itself out of any sums recovered in such suit or in settlement thereof for all costs and expenses of every kind and character, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, necessarily involved in the prosecution of any such suit.  If, after such reimbursement, any funds shall remain from said recovery, then BioLine shall receive an amount equal to twenty-five percent (25%) of such funds and the remaining seventy-five percent (75%) of such funds shall be retained by Licensor.

  9.1.4.           Own Counsel.  Each party shall always have the right to be represented by counsel of its own selection and at its own expense in any suit instituted under this Section 9 by the other party for Infringement.
 
  9.1.5.           Cooperation.  Each party agrees to cooperate fully in any action under this Section 9 which is controlled by the other party, provided that the controlling party reimburses the cooperating party promptly for any reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the cooperating party in connection with providing such assistance.
 
  9.1.6.           Standing.  If a party lacks standing and the other party has standing to bring any such suit, action or proceeding, then such other party (the “Requested Party”) shall do so at the request of and at the full costs and expenses of the requesting party (the “Requesting Party”).  The Requesting Party shall pay in advance to the Requested Party any and all anticipated costs of such suit, action or proceeding, including attorneys’ fees and shall hold the Requested Party free, clear and harmless from and against any and all costs resulting from such litigation.  If a party determines, (the “Determining Party”), that it is necessary for the other party (the “Determined Party”), to join any such suit, action or proceeding, the Determined Party shall execute all papers and perform such other acts as may be reasonably required in the circumstances at the full costs and expenses of the Determining Party.  The Determining Party shall pay in advance to the Determined Party any and all anticipated costs of such joining of any such suit, action or proceeding, including attorneys’ fees and shall hold the Determined Party free, clear and harmless from and against any and all costs resulting from such litigation.
 
9.2            Legal Action against a Party.  Each party will provide the other party with prompt written notice detailing as many facts as possible concerning any claim, threat, action, suit or proceeding brought against it (including Affiliates or Sublicensees), alleging the infringement of the intellectual property rights of a third party by reason of the discovery, development, manufacture, use, sale, importation, or offer for sale of a Licensed Product or otherwise due to the use or practice of the Invention and Licensed Patents or a claim challenging the validity or ownership of the Licensed Patents.  The parties shall consult with each other in good faith to decide what action, if any, should be taken in respect of such third-party claim.

10.1.         Representations of Licensor.  Licensor hereby represents and warrants to BioLine that, (i) to the best of its knowledge, by virtue of assignment from UdeM, it has sole and exclusive ownership of the Licensed Patents and/or patent applications listed in Exhibit B attached hereto; (ii) no rights in or to the Invention and/or the Licensed Patents have been granted to a third party that are in force and valid as of the Effective Date and that are inconsistent with the rights granted to BioLine under this Agreement; (iii) to the best of its knowledge, it has the right to grant the license granted under this Agreement free and clear of liens, encumbrances and security interests and, to its best knowledge, third party claims; (iv) it will not transfer, assign, grant rights to, sell, lease or otherwise dispose of or encumber the Invention and/or the Licensed Patents other than as may be expressly permitted herein; and (v) it has not been notified of any legal claims, demands, threats or proceeding in writing or otherwise of any sort by any third party against the Licensor contesting the ownership or validity of the Invention and/or any of the Licensed Patents, or claiming that the practice of the Invention and/or any of the Licensed Patents in the manner contemplated by this Agreement would infringe the rights of such third party and, to the best of our knowledge without having conducted a complete due diligence on the matter, nor any reason to expect the same.
 
 
18

 

10.2.         Undertakings of BioLine.  BioLine undertakes that it will, and shall cause any third party that acts on its behalf or an Affiliate that is granted rights to the Invention or Licensed Patents as provided pursuant to this Agreement to (i) respect all of its obligations found herein or in any other agreement with Licensor; and (ii) not, directly or indirectly, engage in any activities concerning the Licensed Patents which is contrary to applicable laws.

10.5.         No Warranty.  Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, neither party makes any warranty with respect to any technology, patents, goods, services, rights or other subject matter of this Agreement, and each party hereby disclaims warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement with respect to any and all of the foregoing.

10.6.         Patentability, validity and scope of Licensed Patents.  Licensor does not make any warranties or representations, express or implied, concerning the validity and patentability of the Invention, Licensed Patents, the intellectual property rights related thereto, the Licensed Products or whether or not the exercise of the rights licensed under this Agreement will result in the infringement of any intellectual property right held by third parties.  BioLine acknowledges that it has been advised by Licensor to undertake its own due diligence with respect to the Invention and the Licensed Patents.

10.7.         No Warranty of Merchantability of Licensed Patents.  Licensor makes no warranties, express, implied or statutory, and assume no liabilities or responsibilities with respect to (i) the use, sale or other disposition by BioLine, its Affiliates, Sublicensees, vendees or transferees of Licensed Products using the Licensed Patents, or (ii) any representations or warranties that BioLine or its Affiliates may extend.  Licensor does not warrant that the underlying technology described in or claimed as inventions in any of the Licensed Patents is error free or that it will meet BioLine’s requirements.  All implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose are expressly disclaimed and excluded.  The entire risk as to the results and performance of the underlying technology described in or claimed as an invention in any of the Licensed Patents and any Licensed Products, services or methods based on the underlying technology described in or claimed as an invention in any of the Licensed Patents is assumed by BioLine.

11.           Indemnification.

11.1.         Indemnity.  BioLine shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Licensor, its limited and general partners and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents and their respective successors, heirs and assigns (the “Licensor Indemnitees”), against any and all liability, damage, loss, or expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses of litigation) incurred by or imposed upon any of the Licensor Indemnitees in connection with any claims, suits, actions, demands or judgments (“Claims”) arising out of any theory of liability (including without limitation actions in the form of tort, warranty, or strict liability and regardless of whether such action has any factual basis) concerning: (i) the use of the Invention and Licensed Patents by BioLine or any party acting on its behalf, on its behalf or any of its Affiliates or Sublicensees, or concerning any Licensed Product, process, or service that is developed, made, used, manufactured, promoted, sold or otherwise disposed of pursuant to any right or license granted by Licensor to BioLine under this Agreement (except in cases where, and to the extent that, such Claims result from the gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of Licensor , in which case Licensor shall indemnify BioLine and the provisions hereof shall apply mutatis mutandis); and (ii) the gross negligence or willful misconduct by BioLine or any party acting on its behalf, or any of its Affiliates or Sublicensees..

11.2.         Procedures.  If Licensor receives notice of any Claim, Licensor shall, as promptly as is reasonably possible, give BioLine notice of such Claim; provided, however, that failure to give such notice promptly shall only relieve BioLine of any indemnification obligation it may have hereunder to the extent such failure diminishes the ability of BioLine to respond to or to defend the Licensor Indemnitee against such Claim.  Licensor and BioLine shall consult and cooperate with each other regarding the response to and the defense of any such Claim and BioLine shall, upon its acknowledgment in writing of its obligation to indemnify the Licensor Indemnitee, be entitled to and shall assume the defense or represent the interests of the Licensor Indemnitee in respect of such Claim, that shall include the right to select and direct legal counsel and other consultants to appear in proceedings on behalf of the Licensor Indemnitee and to propose, accept or reject offers of settlement, all at its sole cost; provided, however, that no such settlement shall be made without the written consent of the Licensor, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld.  Nothing herein shall prevent the Licensor from retaining its own counsel and participating in its own defense at its own cost and expense.
 
 
20

 

11.3.         Insurance.  BioLine shall maintain insurance that is reasonably adequate to fulfill any potential obligation to the Licensor Indemnitees consistent with industry standards.  BioLine shall provide Licensor, upon request, with written evidence of such insurance.

1. 
I have reviewed this annual report on Form 20-F/A of BioLineRx Ltd.;
 
 
2. 
Based on my knowledge, this report does not contain any untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary to make the statements made, in light of the circumstances under which such statements were made, not misleading with respect to the period covered by this report;
 
 
3. 
Based on my knowledge, the financial statements, and other financial information included in this report, fairly present in all material respects the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows of the company as of, and for, the periods presented in this report;
 
 
4. 
The company’s other certifying officer(s) and I are responsible for establishing and maintaining disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) and internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f)) for the company and have:
 
 
a)
Designed such disclosure controls and procedures, or caused such disclosure controls and procedures to be designed under our supervision, to ensure that material information relating to the company, including its consolidated subsidiaries, is made known to us by others within those entities, particularly during the period in which this report is being prepared;
 
 
b)
Designed such internal control over financial reporting, or caused such internal control over financial reporting to be designed under our supervision, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles;
 
 
c) 
Evaluated the effectiveness of the company’s disclosure controls and procedures and presented in this report our conclusions about the effectiveness of the disclosure controls and procedures, as of the end of the period covered by this report based on such evaluation; and

Disclosed in this report any change in the company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by the annual report that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the company’s internal control over financial reporting;
 
 
5. 
The company’s other certifying officer(s) and I have disclosed, based on our most recent evaluation of internal control over financial reporting, to the company’s auditors and the audit committee of the company’s board of directors (or persons performing the equivalent functions):
 
 
a)
All significant deficiencies and material weaknesses in the design or operation of internal control over financial reporting which are reasonably likely to adversely affect the company’s ability to record, process, summarize and report financial information; and
 
 
b)
Any fraud, whether or not material, that involves management or other employees who have a significant role in the company’s internal control over financial reporting.
