Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On October 22, 2020, Brainstorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a binding proposal (the “Agreement”) with Catalent Houston, LLC, a subsidiary of Catalent, Inc. (“Catalent”) pursuant to which the Company will contract Catalent to begin initial technology transfer work for its own NurOwn® program, raw materials storage and GMP Preparation.


The Agreement calls for an initial non-refundable $1 million payment from the Company to Catalent, which the Company paid, along with additional payments to be made upon an agreed upon schedule upon the completion of certain aspects of the partnership, totaling initially, up to approximately $4.2 million.


The Agreement is terminable by the Company for three (3) months from the execution date of the Agreement, in the event that (i) any ongoing clinical trials relating to the Company’s NurOwn® program fail to achieve their primary endpoints, or (ii) the U.S. Food and Drug Administration places a hold on any of the Company’s clinical trials relating to the NurOwn® program. Upon the event of termination by the Company, the Company shall pay Catalent for (1) all fees related to services and activities performed prior to the effective date of such termination, and (2) all costs and expenses incurred, and all non-cancellable commitments made, in the performance of such services and activities, including (A) any costs incurred to wind down and cease any ongoing services and (B) the costs for any sample/materials, reference materials, equipment, and supplies purchased by Catalent for their work under the Agreement.


The Company and Catalent are working on material documentation, which, pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, will include an implementation strategy for the technology transfer, estimated costs, as well as project timelines. 

The above summary of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety to the full text of the Agreement and additional material documentation to be entered into between the Company and Catalent, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2020.
