The relevant provisions of the Convertible Loan Agreement shall be construed accordingly.
3.2 Repayment. The first two paragraphs of Section 1 of the Schedule consisting of approximately four lines of text (under the general heading “LOAN (Section 1.1)”) shall be replaced with the following:
1. LOAN (Section 1.1):

3.6 Definitions. The following new definitions shall be added to Section 7 (“Definitions”) of the Convertible Loan Agreement:
“ Eligible Accounts ” means Accounts and General Intangibles arising in the ordinary course of Borrower’s business from the sale of goods or the rendition of services, or the non-exclusive licensing of Intellectual Property, which PFG, in its good faith business judgment, shall deem eligible for borrowing. Without limiting the fact that the determination of which Accounts are eligible for borrowing is a matter of PFG’s good faith business judgment, the following (the “ Minimum Eligibility Requirements ”) are the minimum requirements for a Account to be an Eligible Account:
(i) the Account must not be outstanding for more than 90 days from its invoice date (the “ Eligibility Period ”),
(ii) the Account must not represent progress billings, credit balances, accounting entries made to nullify a prior entry (contras), or be due under a fulfillment or requirements contract with the Account Debtor,
(iii) the Account must not be subject to any contingencies (including Accounts arising from sales on consignment, guaranteed sale or other terms pursuant to which payment by the Account Debtor may be conditional),
(iv) the Account must not be owing from an Account Debtor with whom Borrower has any material dispute (whether or not relating to the particular Account),
(v) the Account must not be owing from an Affiliate of Borrower,
(vi) the Account must not be owing from an Account Debtor which is subject to any insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding, or whose financial condition is not acceptable to PFG in its good faith business judgment, or which fails or goes out of a material portion of its business,
(vii) the Account must not be owing from the United States or any department, agency or instrumentality thereof (“Government Accounts”), to the extent the aggregate of such Government Accounts exceeds 25% of Eligible Accounts at any time (unless there has been compliance, to PFG’s satisfaction, with the United States Assignment of Claims Act) and, for the avoidance of doubt, any Government Accounts in excess of such threshold shall not be treated as Eligible Account unless PFG, in its sole discretion, otherwise expressly permits,
(viii) the Account must not be owing from an Account Debtor located outside the United States or Canada (unless an Excepted Concentration Account, pre-approved by PFG in its discretion in writing, or backed by a letter of credit satisfactory to PFG, or FCIA insured satisfactory to PFG),
(xi) the Account must not be owing from an Account debtor whose accounts receivable aged over 90 days from invoice date exceed 50% of all accounts receivable from such account debtor, and in such case, no account receivable of such account debtor would be eligible for financing hereunder; and
(x) the Account must not be owing from an Account Debtor to whom Borrower is or may be liable for goods purchased from such Account Debtor or otherwise (but, in such case, the Account will be deemed not eligible only to the extent of any amounts owed by Borrower to such Account Debtor).
Accounts owing from one Account Debtor will not be deemed Eligible Accounts to the extent they exceed 25% of the total Accounts outstanding; provided that the foregoing shall not include Excepted Concentration Accounts. In addition, if more than 50% of the Accounts owing from an Account Debtor are outstanding for a period longer than their Eligibility Period (without regard to unapplied credits) or are otherwise not eligible Accounts, then all Accounts owing from that Account Debtor will be deemed ineligible for borrowing. PFG may, from time to time, in its good faith business judgment, revise the Minimum Eligibility Requirements, upon written notice to Borrower.
“ Excepted Concentration Accounts ” means Accounts Receivable from Merial, Amgen, Inc. (AMGN: NASDAQ), Ferring and Serono, Inc. (SRA: NYSE).
“ Minimum Eligibility Requirements ” is defined in the definition of “Eligible Accounts” above.
3.7 Provisions Dealing with Accounts. To Section 4 of the Convertible Loan Agreement are added the following new provisions:
“4.10 Representations Relating to Accounts. Borrower represents and warrants to PFG as follows: Each Account used by Borrower to determine its compliance with the financial covenant set forth in Section 5 of the Schedule shall, (i) represent an undisputed bona fide existing unconditional obligation of the Account Debtor created by the sale, delivery, and acceptance of goods or the rendition of services, or the licensing of Intellectual
Property, in the ordinary course of Borrower’s business, and (ii) meet the Minimum Eligibility Requirements set forth in Section 8 below.
