We believe the alliance of Pluristem with a recognized leader of advanced healthcare systems in South Korea will provide multiple opportunities to strengthen our pipeline and develop PLX cells products for new indications. Cha Bio&Diostech's commitment to the PAD markets is an important milestone for us. We will be able to receive data from multiple CLI and IC trials that will enable us to optimize the clinical development of PLX-PAD. The co-owned joint venture will take advantage of Cha's unique and leading position in regenerative medicine in South Korea and Pluristem's proprietary 3D cells culturing capabilities.

Particularly, Pluristem's pipeline PLX leveraging CHA Health Systems group's R&D, clinical development, regulatory and commercialization infrastructure focused on cell therapies in Korea will provide huge strategic advantage to entering Korea and global market territory in the future. Going forward, we expect PLX cells will be the first Pharmaceutical-like stem cell therapy product as well as the first allogenic product approved for the mass market to treat numerous patients suffering from serious disease such as the CLI and IC with limited cure."
