BioTime, Inc. was incorporated in 1990 in the state of California. It is a biotechnology company engaged in two areas of biomedical research and product development. The Company has historically developed blood plasma volume expanders and related technology for use in surgery, emergency trauma treatment and other applications. Its focus is in the field of regenerative medicine; specifically human embryonic stem (“hES”) cell and induced pluripotent stem (“iPS”) cell technology. Regenerative medicine refers to therapies based on stem cell technology that are designed to rebuild cell and tissue function lost due to degenerative disease or injury. hES and iPS cells provide a means of manufacturing every cell type in the human body and therefore show considerable promise for the development of a number of new therapeutic products. The Company plans to develop stem cell products for research and therapeutic use through its subsidiaries. OncoCyte Corporation is developing products and technologies to diagnose and treat cancer. ES Cell International Pte., Ltd. (“ESI”), a Singapore private limited company, develops and sells hES products for research use. BioTime Asia, Limited a Hong Kong company, sells products for research use and may develop therapies to treat cancer, neurological, and orthopedic diseases. OrthoCyte Corporation is developing therapies to treat orthopedic disorders, diseases and injuries. ReCyte Therapeutics, Inc., formerly known as Embryome Sciences, Inc. is developing therapies to treat vascular and blood diseases and disorders. Cell Cure Neurosciences Ltd. is an Israel-based biotechnology company focused on developing stem cell-based therapies for retinal and neurological disorders, including the development of retinal pigment epithelial cells for the treatment of macular degeneration, and treatments for multiple sclerosis. LifeMap Sciences, Inc. markets GeneCards, the human gene database, and is developing an integrated database suite to complement GeneCards that will also include the LifeMap database of embryonic development, stem cell research and regenerative medicine, and MalaCards, the human disease database. Its products for use in stem cell research are being offered to researchers at universities and other institutions, at companies in the bioscience and biopharmaceutical industries, and at other companies that provide research products to companies in those industries. As of March 18, 2013, the company owned or controlled or licensed directly or through its subsidiaries 281 issued or allowed U.S. patents and also owned or controlled over 141 pending U.S. patent applications, including provisional patent applications, to protect its proprietary technologies. The Company also licensed 140 IP patents and applications from WARF. The Company and its subsidiaries face competition in both blood plasma expander business and regenerative medicine and stem cell business.
