Board Recommendation Who Can Vote Only Shareholders of record at the close of business on September 19, 2022 (the "Record Date") are entitled to notice of, and to vote at, the Annual Meeting, including any adjournment or postponement thereof. How You Can Vote You can vote your ordinary shares by attending the Annual Meeting. If you do not plan to attend the Annual Meeting, the method of voting may differ for shares held as a record holder, shares held in "street name", and shares underlying ADSs that you hold. Registered Shareholders. Shareholders registered in the Company's register of shareholders ("Registered Shareholders") may vote their shares by attending the Annual Meeting and voting their shares in person or by completing, dating, signing and mailing the attached proxy card, which is available at www.sec.gov, to the Meeting Mailing Address. You must also provide the Company with a copy of your photo identification document, passport or certificate of incorporation, as the case may be. These documents must be received by the Company no later than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled date and time of the Annual Meeting. Shareholders Holding in "Street Name." Shareholders who hold their shares in "street name," meaning in the name of a bank, broker, or other nominee, must either direct the record holder of their shares on how to vote their shares or obtain a legal proxy from the record holder to vote at the Annual Meeting on behalf of the record holder, together with a proof of such record holder holding of the shares on the Record Date, to be submitted to the Annual Meeting Mailing Address and received no later than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled date and time of the Annual Meeting. You should follow the directions provided by your broker or nominee regarding how to instruct them to vote your shares. ADS Holders. Under the terms of the Deposit Agreement between the Company, The Bank of New York Mellon, as depositary ("BNY Mellon"), and the ADS holders, BNY Mellon shall endeavor (insofar as is practicable) to vote or cause to be voted the number of shares represented by ADSs in accordance with the instructions provided by the ADS holders to BNY Mellon. For ADSs that are held in "street name", through a bank, broker or other nominee, the voting process will be based on the underlying beneficial holder of the ADSs directing the bank, broker or other nominee to arrange for BNY Mellon to vote the ordinary shares represented by the ADSs in accordance with the beneficial holder's voting instructions. If no instructions are received by BNY Mellon from an ADS holder (whether held directly by a beneficial holder or in "street name") with respect to any of the ordinary shares represented by the ADSs on or before the date established by BNY Mellon for such purpose, BNY Mellon shall not vote or attempt to vote the shares represented by such ADSs. Multiple Record Holders or Accounts. You may receive more than one set of voting materials, including multiple copies of this document and multiple proxy cards or voting instruction forms. For example, ADS holders who hold ADSs in more than one brokerage account may receive a separate voting instruction form for each brokerage account in which ADSs are held. Shareholders of record whose shares are registered in more than one name may receive more than one proxy card. You should complete, sign, date and return each proxy card and voting instruction form you receive. Our Board urges you to vote your shares so that they will be counted at the Annual Meeting or at any postponements or adjournments of the Annual Meeting. Solicitation of Proxies By appointing "proxies", Shareholders may vote at the Annual Meeting, whether or not they attend. If a properly executed proxy in the attached form is received by us at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the Annual Meeting (and in the case of ADS holders, received by BNY Mellon no later than the date indicated on the voting instruction form), all of the shares represented by the proxy shall be voted as indicated on the form, and in such manner as the holder of the proxy may determine with respect to any other business as may come before the Annual Meeting or any adjournment thereof. If a Shareholder instructs in a proxy to abstain from voting on a specific proposal, or if a duly executed proxy card is received with no voting preference noted, such shares shall not be counted in calculating the percentage of affirmative votes required for approval of such proposal, although they will be counted for the purpose of determining a quorum. Shareholders may revoke their proxies at any time before the deadline for receipt of proxies by filing with us, or with BNY Mellon (in the case of ADS holders), a written notice of revocation, or a duly executed proxy bearing a later date. Proxies are being distributed or made available to Shareholders on or about September 21, 2022. Certain officers, directors, employees, and agents of ours, none of whom will receive additional compensation therefor, may solicit proxies by telephone, emails, or other personal contact. We will bear the cost for the solicitation of the proxies, including postage, printing, and handling, and will reimburse the reasonable expenses of brokerage firms and others for forwarding material to beneficial owners of shares and ADSs. Quorum At the close of business on September 19, 2022, we had outstanding 24,233,024,799 ordinary shares. The foregoing number of outstanding ordinary shares excludes 2,641,693 ordinary shares that are held in treasury and have no voting rights. Each ordinary share (including ordinary shares represented by ADSs) outstanding as of the close of business on the Record Date is entitled to one vote upon each of the matters to be voted on at the Annual Meeting. In the count of the votes of Shareholders, abstentions will not be taken into account, but abstentions will be counted as ordinary shares present for the purpose of determining a quorum. The Annual Meeting will be properly convened if at least two Shareholders attend the Annual Meeting in person or by signed and returned proxies, provided that they hold shares representing at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the outstanding voting rights of the Company. If such quorum is not present within half an hour from the time scheduled for the Annual Meeting, the Annual Meeting will be adjourned for one week (to the same time and place), or to a later date as may be specified by the Board in the notice of the Annual Meeting or by notice to Shareholders eligible to vote. At the reconvened meeting, if there is no quorum within half an hour from the time scheduled for the meeting, any number of our Shareholders present in person or by proxy shall constitute a lawful quorum. Vote Required for the Proposals The approval of each of the Proposals on the agenda is subject to the affirmative vote of a majority of the Company's issued and outstanding ordinary shares, including those represented by ADSs, voted in person or by proxy on such Proposal at the Annual Meeting, with abstentions not taken into account for voting purposes (the "Voted Shares"). How votes will be counted If you provide specific instructions (mark boxes) with regard to the proposal, your shares will be voted as you instruct. If you do not mark one of the boxes, your vote shall not be counted. If you are a Shareholder of record and do not return your proxy card, your shares will not be voted. If you hold shares (including ADSs representing shares) beneficially in street name, your shares will also not be voted at the Annual Meeting if you do not return your proxy card or voting instruction form to instruct your broker or BNY Mellon how to vote. A broker and BNY Mellon may only vote in accordance with instructions from a beneficial owner of shares or ADSs.

We fulfill these requirements by filing reports with the SEC. Our filings with the SEC may be inspected without charge at the SEC's Public Reference Room at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20549.

Our Board unanimously recommends that Shareholders vote "FOR" resolutions 1.A., 1.B., 1.C., 1.D., 1.E., 1.F. and 1.G of this Proposal 1. PROPOSAL 2 INCREASE OF THE COMPANY'S REGISTERED SHARE CAPITAL Under the Articles, the registered share capital of the Company is 50,000,000,000 ordinary shares without any nominal value each. As of the Record Date, the Company had (i) 24,233,024,799 ordinary shares issued and outstanding, excluding 2,641,693 ordinary shares that are held in treasury; and (ii) 18,389,670,000 ordinary shares reserved for purposes of the exercise of outstanding options and warrants. Under the Companies Law, a company may not issue shares, or securities exercisable for or convertible into shares, in excess of its registered share capital, on a fully diluted basis. In order to have a sufficient reserve of authorized but unissued shares available for corporate purposes, including, without limitation, issuance of ordinary shares for corporate finance purposes and upon exercise of warrants and options, including, without limitation, under the Company's Amended and Restated Equity Incentive Plan or any other option plan which may be adopted by the Company in the future, it is therefore proposed that the following resolution be adopted at the Annual Meeting: Resolved, to increase the Company's registered share capital from 50,000,000,000 ordinary shares (without any nominal value) to 500,000,000,000 ordinary shares (without any nominal value), and to amend the Articles to reflect such increase, in the form attached as Annex A to this Proxy Statement. Our Board unanimously recommends that Shareholders vote "FOR" Proposal 2. PROPOSAL 3 APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT AUDITORS Under the Companies Law, a company's independent auditor (the "Auditor") is responsible for auditing and giving an opinion on the company's annual financial statements. The Companies Law states that the Auditor must be appointed by a general meeting of shareholders, and, in general, that each annual general meeting appoints the Auditor for a term of service extending until the following annual general meeting. Friedman LLP, a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) ("Friedman LLP"), which was elected at our Annual General Meeting on April 12, 2022 to serve as the Company's Auditor, has informed the Company that, effective September 1, 2022, it combined with Marcum LLP, a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB ("Marcum LLP"). Accordingly, our Audit Committee has recommended the appointment of Marcum LLP to serve as the Company's new Auditor. Marcum LLP has the licensing requirements and professional ability and experience necessary, as well as the logistical capability, to serve as the Company's Auditor. The key provisions with respect to the remuneration of Marcum LLP for the services it will provide to the Company include: (a) $105,000 for an audit of the balance sheet as of December 31, 2022 and the statements of operations, comprehensive loss, shareholders' equity, cash flows and related notes for the year ending December 31, 2022 in accordance with PCAOB standards; (b) $17,500 for the interim 2022 third quarter review; and (c) $20,500 for each 2023 interim period quarterly review; the above excluding reimbursement for travel and other out-of-pocket expenses. As recommended by our Audit Committee, the Board has approved these terms of remuneration for the services which Marcum LLP would provide as the Company's Auditor until our next annual general meeting to take place in 2023 which, in the Board's view, are reasonable. In the Board's judgment, it is in the Company's best interests to retain Marcum LLP as the Company's Auditor under these conditions. It is therefore proposed that the following resolution be adopted at the Annual Meeting: Resolved, to appoint Marcum LLP, a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), to serve as the Company's Auditor, until the Company's next annual general meeting. Our Board unanimously recommends that Shareholders vote "FOR" Proposal 3. 2021 FINANCIAL STATEMENTS In accordance with Section 171(c) of the Companies Law, we are required to present the Company's audited annual financial statements at the Company's annual general meeting. The Company's audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021 were included in Exhibit 99.4 to the Company's Form 6-K furnished to the SEC on August 10, 2022 and can be found at: This item will not involve a vote by the Shareholders. Your vote is important! Shareholders are urged to promptly complete and return their proxies or voting instruction forms, as applicable, in order to, among other things, ensure action by a quorum and to avoid the expense of additional solicitation. If the accompanying proxy or voting instruction form, as applicable, is properly executed and returned in time for voting, and a choice is specified, the Shares represented thereby will be voted as indicated thereon. Proxies and all other applicable materials should be sent to the Annual Meeting Mailing Address, so that they are received no less than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the date designated for the Annual Meeting.
