WHEREAS, the Company, the Lender and IM Cannabis Corp. (“IMCC”) have executed a certain Term-Sheet, dated February 13, 2024 (the “Term Sheet”) contemplating, inter-alia, (a) the consummation of a reverse triangular merger structure resulting in Lender becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of IMCC as the surviving entity, subject to the fulfillment of conditions precedent as shall be defined in the definitive agreement (the "Definitive Agreement" and the "Surviving Entity”, accordingly); and (b) the restructuring of the Company’s legacy business through certificates evidencing Contingent Value Rights (“CVR”) whereby  the respective proceeds from the sale of such  legacy business  shall subsequently be distributed to the shareholders of IMCC, as agreed upon in the Term Sheet and to be mutual further agreed in upon the Definitive Agreement (the "Transaction");

WHEREAS, for the purpose of addressing the working capital needs of the Company in connection with the foregoing disposition of assets and management of the CVR process (the “Purpose”), the Company may require to secure adequate financing, and Lender has agreed to provide such financing to the Company under the terms set forth herein;

NOW, THEREFORE, the Parties hereby agree with each other as follows:


Provision of Loan. The Lender shall provide to the Company, an aggregate amount of up to US$650,000 (the “Principal Amount”), as follows:

US$300,000 shall be wired to the Company up to five (5) days from the execution of this Agreement (the “First Drawdown”).

The balance of up to US$350,000 shall be wired to the Company upon the execution of the definitive agreement(s) for the Transaction (the “Definitive Agreements”), provided however, that the Company shall, within three (3) business days prior to the execution of the Definitive Agreements, inform Lender in writing of the actual amount it desires to draw on account of such balance payment (the “Second Drawdown Request”).

It is clarified that any amount not requested by the Company under the Second Drawdown Request shall be deemed as waived by Company, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing between the Borrower and Lender.

For the purposes of this Loan Agreement, any reasonable costs, expenses and fees incurred by Lender for the purpose of securing repayment and/or otherwise foreclosing on the assets underlying the Security Interest (the “Expenses”), shall be deemed an amount accrued on account of the Loan Amount, provided that, insofar as the Expenses exceed NIS5,000, Lender agrees to solely seek collection of the outstanding Loan Amount (including Expenses), on account of the Personal Guarantee (as defined below), unless the Personal Guaranty is insufficient in which case the Lender may pursue collection from both.

Interest. Any outstanding Principal Amount shall bear an interest in the rate of 9.00% (nine percent) compounded annually, calculated on a daily basis and on the basis of a 360-day year, as of the date in which such actual disbursement of fund was made to Company (the “Interest”, and together with the Principal Amount: the “Loan Amount”).

Repayment; Maturity Date. Subject to the terms herein, each portion of the Principal Amount disbursed, plus Interest, shall become due and payable upon the date which is the first anniversary from the date in which such respective amount was disbursed to Company (the “Maturity Date). The Principal Amount shall be repaid in full, together with all accrued and unpaid Interest, on the Maturity Date; provided, however, that the Company shall be entitled to prepay the Loan Amount or any portion thereof prior to the Maturity Date. Any repayment made hereunder shall first be deemed to be made on account of unpaid Interest accrued until the date of such repayment.

Taxes. Subject to applicable law, all payments due to be made to the Lender under this Agreement, whether of principal, interest or otherwise, shall be made without deduction or withholding for, any taxes.

Currency.  Any repayment made hereunder shall be in US$, unless otherwise agreed in writing by Lender. In such event, the US$:NIS exchange rate shall be the USD/ILS representative exchange rate published by the bank of Israel and known on date of actual repayment by Company.

Collaterals. Concurrently with the execution of this Agreement, Borrower covenants to provide, and cause the relevant stakeholders to provide, the following collaterals (the “Security Interest”):

10% of the proceeds derived from any operation sale under the CVR (“Charged Rights”) limited to the outstanding Loan Amount and Expenses. Accordingly, (i) The Borrower retains the option, at its sole discretion, to record a second-ranked fixed charge  over the Charged Rights or, alternatively, in case the existing pledges over the Charged Rights at the date of signing this Loan Agreement are subsequently discharged or removed, then the Borrower shall promptly record a first-ranking fixed charge over the Charged Assets with all applicable public records (ii) Borrower shall not, and shall not permit any person or entity, to impose any new lien, mortgage, charge or pledge over the Charged Rights that did not exist on the date hereof, and (iii) with respect to any future debt assumed by Borrower, Borrower shall cause that such debt shall be subordinated to Borrower’s rights in the Charged Rights.

The Borrower shall use its best efforts to record a first-ranking fixed charge over the assets of its subsidiary, A.R Yarok Pharm Ltd, in due course when applicable and as deemed appropriate.

Upon full and final payment by the Guarantor to the Lender, the Guarantor shall be subrogated to the rights of the Lender against the Borrower, and the Lender agrees to take such steps as the Guarantor may reasonably request, at the Guarantor's expense, to give effect to such subrogation.

The Parties agree that, subject to Section 1.1.4, Lender shall first be obligated to seek repayment of the Loan Amount from the Company and its assets prior to foreclosing on the Personal Guarantee.
It is hereby agreed and undertaken that upon repayment of all amounts due hereunder (including cost of collection, as specified in section 1.6.3), the Security Interest created and/or to be established hereunder shall be automatically expired and be of no further force or effect without any further actions by the Lender.
