The “Difference” shall be calculated and adjusted according to a standard weighted average mechanism for each such Future Private Placement.
The Company's share capital consists and shall consist (for as long as this section 2.2 is in force) only of Ordinary Shares of the same par value as the shares issued to the Investor hereunder all bearing equal rights.

For example, and without derogating the generality of the aforementioned, the term Future Private Placements shall not refer to any issuance made pursuant to payments due under contractual commitment or instead of cash/debt payment, such as (not an inclusive list) achieving development or commercial milestone under license agreement, consideration payment to service provider / contractor, settlement of indemnification debt and/or ESOP grants.
