5. Adjustment

The number of Ordinary Shares purchasable upon the exercise of this Warrant and the applicable Exercise Price shall be subject to adjustment from time to time or upon exercise as provided in this Section 5:



  5.1 Consolidation and Division.

  5.2 Bonus Shares. In the event of a distribution of bonus shares by the Company during the Option Period, this Warrant shall represent the right to acquire, in addition to the number of Warrant Shares indicated in the caption of this Warrant, and without payment of any additional consideration therefor, the amount of such bonus shares to which the Holder would have been entitled had this Warrant been exercised prior to the distribution of the bonus shares.


  5.3 Share Swap. Insofar as the Company is party to a share swap agreement or arrangement (such as a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation in which the Company is not the surviving entity or reorganization) (the “Share Swap”), in which an offer is made to the Company’s shareholders to swap their shares for securities of some other corporation, provision shall be made so that the Holder thereafter shall be entitled to receive, such securities as were swapped for the shares of the Company, as though the Holder had held the Warrant Shares on the record date of the Share Swap.


6. Limitation on Transfer

Except as otherwise limited herein, this Warrant shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Holder and its respective successors and assigns.
