Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, Seller hereby agrees to assign and transfer, and shall assign and transfer at Closing, to Buyer, the Assigned Rights, on an exclusive basis, free and clear of any Liens, and Buyer hereby agrees to acquire and purchase, and shall acquire and purchase at Closing, the Assigned Rights, on an exclusive basis, free and clear of any Liens.
Section 2.02    No Assumed Liabilities. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement or any other writing to the contrary, Buyer is acquiring only the Assigned Rights and is not assuming and shall not assume or otherwise be responsible for any Liabilities of Seller of whatever nature, whether under any of the Commercial License Agreements or otherwise. All such Liabilities shall be retained by, and remain obligations of, Seller, and shall be paid, performed and discharged by Seller.
Section 2.03    Excluded Assets. Buyer does not, by the purchase of the Assigned Rights, acquire any assets, rights or claims of Seller under the Commercial License Agreements or otherwise, except the Assigned Rights.
Section 2.04    Nontransferable Assigned Rights. To the extent that any Assigned Right to be assigned to Buyer pursuant hereto is not capable of being assigned or transferred without the approval, consent or waiver of the Commercial License Agreement counterparty or any other Third Party (including a Governmental Body), or if such assignment or transfer or attempted assignment or transfer would constitute a Default thereof or a violation of any Law (collectively, with respect to such Assigned Rights, the “Nontransferable Assigned Rights”), except as expressly otherwise provided herein this Agreement shall not constitute an assignment or transfer thereof, or an attempted assignment or transfer thereof absent such approvals, consents or waivers. If any such approval, consent or waiver shall not be obtained, or if an attempted assignment or transfer of any such Assigned Rights to Buyer would be ineffective so that Buyer would not in fact receive all such Assigned Rights pursuant hereto, Seller shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such approval, consent or waiver, and until obtained, cooperate in a mutually agreeable arrangement under which Buyer would obtain (effective from and after the Closing Date), from Seller and/or directly from the Commercial License Agreement counterparty, the benefits of such Assigned Rights in accordance with this Agreement or under which Seller, at Buyer’s expense, would enforce for the benefit of Buyer any and all rights of Seller against a Third Party thereto and remit monies to Buyer. The intent of this provision is that pending assignment, Seller shall cooperate to (effective from and after the Closing Date) place Buyer in a position as near as may be (in terms of benefits, costs and risks) as if assignment had occurred on the Signature Date. In any event, as to each respective Assigned Rights, as soon as any and all such required approvals, consents and waivers have been obtained, the assignment of such Assigned Rights from Seller to Buyer shall automatically and immediately be effective without any requirement for further consideration for such assignment.
The Parties further confirm that the Assigned Rights with respect to the Commercial License Agreement [***], listed in [***] Exhibit A, [***]. Seller shall from and after the Closing Date use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such consent (in form and substance consistent with the consents described in Section 4.14 below) from such Commercial License Agreement counterparty or, as applicable, from the assignee ([***]) of the rights of such counterparty under such Commercial License Agreement, and until obtained, cooperate in a mutually agreeable arrangement under which Buyer would obtain (effective from and after the Closing Date), from Seller and/or directly from the Commercial License Agreement counterparty, the benefits of such Assigned Rights in accordance with this Agreement or under which Seller, at Buyer’s expense, would enforce for the benefit of Buyer any and all rights of Seller against a Third Party thereto and remit monies to Buyer. The intent of this provision is that pending consent/assignment, Seller shall cooperate to (effective from and after the Closing Date) place Buyer in a position as near as may be (in terms of benefits, costs and risks) as if consent/assignment had occurred on the Signature Date. In any event, as to the Assigned Rights with respect to such Commercial License Agreement, as soon as any and all such required approvals, consents and waivers have been obtained, the assignment of such Assigned Rights from Seller to Buyer shall automatically and immediately be effective without any requirement for further consideration for such assignment.

ARTICLE IX    
POST-CLOSING COVENANTS
Section 9.01    Commercial License Agreements. Subject to Section 9.02, Seller shall exercise fully all of its rights, and comply fully with all of its obligations, under the Commercial License Agreements and shall not, without Buyer’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), permit any amendment or take any other action (or omit to take any action) with respect thereto which could reasonably be expected to materially impair the Assigned Rights. Without Buyer’s prior written consent, Seller shall not sell, transfer, assign or otherwise dispose of, or grant any Lien on, the Commercial License Agreements or any Patents or its rights under this Agreement, other than a transfer, assignment or disposal to a Person who/which first (by an enforceable written agreement of which Buyer is an express third-party beneficiary, a copy of which is to be delivered by Seller to Buyer) expressly assumes Seller’s obligations to Buyer hereunder with respect to the Commercial License Agreements.
Section 9.02    Restrictions Regarding Assigned Rights. Seller shall not, without the written consent of Buyer (such written consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed):
(c)    incur or assume any liabilities which would impair the Assigned Rights or impose any liability on Buyer;
(d)    accept the payment of any monies in respect of any Assigned Rights (except as contemplated by and subject to Section 9.09);
(e)    mortgage or pledge or subject any Assigned Rights to a Lien;
(f)    enter into any contract or instrument which negatively affects any Assigned Rights;
(g)    terminate any Commercial License Agreements;
(h)    grant any waiver under, or modify or amend any Commercial License Agreements, in any manner which could or would negatively affect any Assigned Rights;
(i)    agree to take any of the foregoing actions; or
(j)    purport to take any of the foregoing actions, or otherwise intentionally seek to impair any of the Assigned Rights.
Section 9.03    Patent Maintenance.
(h)    Seller shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, at all times after the Closing, at Seller’s expense, maintain, perfect, preserve, renew and defend against reexaminations, oppositions and interferences (collectively, the “Maintenance”) all Patents which as of the Signature Date were issued. With respect to patent applications included in the Patents, Seller shall in good faith exercise reasonable judgment in the continued prosecution and Maintenance of each patent application included in the Patents and of any continuation or divisional patent application thereof.
(i)    If Seller elects to abandon any patent application included in the Patents, or of any continuation or divisional patent application thereof, Seller shall notify Buyer not less than [***] days before such action.
(j)    If Seller has not, by the [***] day before the deadline date for taking a prosecution or Maintenance action on a Patent, taken such relevant prosecution or Maintenance action, then Seller shall immediately so notify Buyer with full details and within [***] days after such notice Buyer shall have the right (but not the obligation) to give written notice to Seller that Buyer is taking over such prosecution or Maintenance action for such Patent and thereupon and thereafter Buyer shall have the sole right (but not the obligation) to take such prosecution or Maintenance action for such Patent. Seller shall, at Seller’s expense, provide all reasonable cooperation and assistance to Buyer in connection with Buyer taking such prosecution or Maintenance action for such Patent. Seller shall reimburse Buyer, within [***] days of the date of Buyer’s invoice setting forth such costs and expenses, for [***]% of the costs and expenses of such prosecution or Maintenance action.
Section 9.04    Patent Enforcement Against Commercial License Agreement Counterparties. [***].
Section 9.05    Payments Enforcement Against Commercial License Agreement Counterparties. [***].
Section 9.06    Seller Participation in Actions. [***].
Section 9.07    Audits. Seller shall, upon request by Buyer and at the Buyer’s costs and expenses, exercise the right, to the extent available to Seller under a respective Commercial License Agreement and to the extent reporting the contents and results to the Buyer is permitted by the relevant Commercial License Agreement (taking into account the waiver as contemplated under Section 4.14), to enforce the recordkeeping and reporting provisions of the Commercial License Agreement as to Net Sales, royalties and/or milestone events and audit and/or inspect the Commercial License Agreement counterparty’s books and records to verify such counterparty’s compliance or noncompliance with the counterparty’s royalty and milestone payment obligations within the Assigned Rights, perform such audit and/or inspection in good faith and with appropriate diligence, and report to Buyer the contents of such reports and the results of such audit and/or inspection.
Section 9.08    No Backfilling. Seller covenants never to (a) directly or indirectly (including by licensing to a Third Party with a right to sublicense to such counterparty or such counterparty’s Affiliate, successor or assign) re-license the Patents to any Commercial License Agreement counterparty (or its Affiliate, successor or assign) for any use that as of the Signature Date was covered by a Commercial License Agreement with such counterparty, nor (b) directly or indirectly covenant not to sue under the Patents any Commercial License Agreement counterparty (or its Affiliate, successor or assign) for any use that as of the Signature Date was covered by a Commercial License Agreement with such counterparty. Seller acknowledges that such covenants are necessary to prevent important harm to Buyer’s financial interest, inasmuch as a Commercial License Agreement counterparty might terminate the Commercial License Agreement for convenience, or a Commercial License Agreement counterparty might procure a termination of the Commercial License Agreement for breach. (And it is further acknowledged that Buyer’s financial interest and expectations would be further harmed if Seller or Seller’s Affiliates or Representatives had any involvement in such termination; but that such involvement would be difficult to prove and that it would be unfair to require Buyer to prove involvement by Seller or Seller’s Affiliates or Representatives.) If the counterparty was free of the Commercial License Agreement and the Assigned Rights no longer applied, and Seller had previously re-enabled or thereafter re-enabled the counterparty commercially without Buyer having the benefit of the Assigned Rights in connection with such activity, it would (whether or not Seller benefited from such re-enablement) materially harm Buyer. Accordingly, Seller agrees that in the event of a breach by Seller of its covenant in the first sentence of this Section, any such re-enablement shall be void, and Section 9.04 of this Agreement shall apply, and in addition Seller shall be liable to Buyer in an amount equal [***].
Section 9.09    Direction of Payments. If any Commercial License Agreement counterparty (or any Person acting on its behalf) delivers to Seller any amount in respect of any Commercial License Agreement royalty or milestone payment to which Buyer is entitled pursuant to the Assigned Rights, Seller shall receive such amount in trust for Buyer and shall immediately transmit [***]% of such amount to Seller, and shall instruct in writing such Commercial License Agreement counterparty (and any such Person acting on its behalf) to in the future pay directly to Buyer all Commercial License Agreement royalty and milestone payments to which Buyer is entitled pursuant to the Assigned Rights. In addition, if any Commercial License Agreement counterparty (or any Person acting on its behalf) corresponds or communicates with Buyer regarding the size or timing of any Commercial License Agreement royalty or milestone payment to which Buyer is entitled pursuant to the Assigned Rights or the Commercial License Agreement counterparty’s obligation (or lack of obligation) in connection therewith, Buyer shall make no response which is prejudicial to Seller’s interest and shall immediately and fully inform Seller in writing of such correspondence or communication, and shall request such Commercial License Agreement counterparty (and any such Person acting on its behalf) to in the future correspond or communicate directly with Buyer as to such matters. If Buyer receives any check or other negotiable instrument in respect of any Commercial License Agreement royalty or milestone payment to which Buyer is entitled pursuant to the Assigned Rights, which is made in favor of Seller, Buyer shall be entitled to, in the name of and on behalf of Seller, endorse such check or other negotiable instrument to Buyer.
Section 9.10    Confidentiality of Counterparty Information. Buyer agrees to be bound by the confidentiality undertakings binding Seller under each Commercial License Agreement for which the counterparty has delivered a consent as contemplated by Section 4.14, as if Buyer was a party thereto, and to treat the counterparty’s confidential information disclosed by such counterparty or by Seller to Buyer in like manner as Seller would have to under the Commercial License Agreement, but subject to the express disclosure permissions set forth in the consent delivered by the relevant counterparty.

Patent Security Agreement


PATENT SECURITY AGREEMENT
This PATENT SECURITY AGREEMENT (this “Patent Security Agreement”) is made this 29th day of April, 2013, between Selexis SA, a Swiss corporation with offices at 18 chemin des Aulx, 1228 Plan-les-Ouates, Geneva, Switzerland (“Grantor”), and Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated, a Delaware corporation with offices at 11119 North Torrey Pines Road, Suite 200, La Jolla, California 92037, USA (“Secured Party”).
