(i)[***] percent ([***]%) if the LICENSEE sublicenses the PATENT RIGHTS to one or more SUBLICENSEES [***] at least one LICENSED PRODUCT which is a [***] at least one oilseed crop species selected from canola, soybean, rapeseed, camelina, or safflower;
(ii)[***] percent ([***]%) if the LICENSEE sublicenses the PATENT RIGHTS to one or more SUBLICENSEES [***] for LICENSED PRODUCT which is an oilseed crop species selected from canola, soybean, rapeseed, camelina, or safflower, but [***] as set forth in subsection (iii);
(iii)[***] percent ([***]%) if the LICENSEE sublicenses the PATENT RIGHTS to one or more SUBLICENSEES [***] of a LICENSED PRODUCT which is an oilseed crop species selected from canola, soybean, rapeseed, camelina, or safflower, but [***] at least one LICENSED PRODUCT [***] in the respective LICENSED FIELD and within the country or countries of the LICENSED TERRITORY as set forth in subsection (iv); and
(iv)[***] percent ([***]%) if the LICENSEE sublicenses the PATENT RIGHTS to one or more SUBLICENSEES [***] at least one LICENSED PRODUCT [***] in the respective LICENSED FIELD and within the country or countries of the LICENSED TERRITORY.
Such revenue or other consideration shall include, but not be limited to, all option fees, license issue fees (up-front payments), license maintenance fees, milestone payments, equity, joint marketing fees, research and development funding in excess of LICENSEE's cost of performing such research and development, and all other royalty payments (other than the earned royalty specified in Section 3.01(b)).
If a SUBLICENSEE desires to provide the LICENSEE with research and development funding as part of the sublicensing considerations for additional research and development activities that the LICENSEE and UNIVERSITY desire to be subcontracted to the UNIVERSITY, then UNIVERSITY and LICENSEE will negotiate in good faith a sponsored research agreement for the UNIVERSITY to perform these research and development activities commensurate with the goals and timelines under which the LICENSEE receives such funding from a SUBLICENSEE.
Section 3.03 Royalty Stacking. If, in order to make, use, import or SELL LICENSED PRODUCTS under the PATENT RIGHTS, it becomes reasonably necessary for LICENSEE to obtain a royalty-bearing license to other patent(s) owned or controlled by a third party ("THIRD PARTY PATENTS") to avoid infringement of the THIRD PARTY PATENTS to the extent that LICENSED PRODUCTS could not be made, used or sold without infringing the THIRD PARTY PATENTS, then the earned

royalty rate in Section 3.01(b) shall be adjusted by an amount equal to [***] percent ([***]%) of the royalty rate paid to the THIRD PARTY, provided that in no event shall the royalties otherwise due UNIVERSITY be less than [***] percent ([***]%) of the royalties that would be payable to UNIVERSITY absent the effects of this section. Thus, for clarity, the adjusted SALES ROYALTY in Section 3.01(b) shall never be reduced below [***] percent ([***]%) for each LICENSED PRODUCT which is a NICHE CROP and [***] percent ([***]%) for each LICENSED PRODUCT which is a COMMODITY CROP.
Section 3.04 Combination Products. In the event that a LICENSED PRODUCT is SOLD in combination with another product or method which themselves are not a LICENSED PRODUCT ("COMBINATION PRODUCTS"), the royalty rate payable on such COMBINATION PRODUCTS will be the royalty rate set forth in Section 3.01(b) applied to a pro rata portion (i.e., "X") of the NET SALES equivalent of COMBINATION PRODUCTS according to the following formula:
X = A/B, where
X = the pro rata portion of NET SALES attributable to the LICENSED PRODUCTS (expressed as a percentage), and
A = the average invoice price of the component in the COMBINATION PRODUCTS utilizing the LICENSED PRODUCTS sold separately, and
B = the average invoice price of the COMBINATION PRODUCTS.
In the event a substantial number of separate sales are not made of one or more component(s) of the COMBINATION PRODUCTS during relevant ROYALTY PERIOD so as to enable a reasonable calculation of average invoice prices of components, then NET SALES will be determined using the same formula shown above, where
A = the total COST of the component in the COMBINATION PRODUCTS utilizing LICENSED PRODUCT, and
B = the total COST of all of the products and components in the COMBINATION PRODUCTS. "COST" as used in this Section 3.04 means the actual cost paid by LICENSEE in an arm's length transaction, if purchased, or if not purchased but actually manufactured by any such LICENSEE, the sum of the manufacturing cost as determined by such LICENSEE's internal cost accounting system. The University shall have the right to review and approve LICENSEE's determination of A and B and the corresponding calculations in this Section XX, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, in no event shall the royalties otherwise due UNIVERSITY be less than [***] percent ([***]%) of the royalties that would be payable to UNIVERSITY absent the effects of this Section. Thus, for clarity, the adjusted SALES ROYALTY in Section 3.01(b) shall never be reduced below [***] percent ([***]%) for each LICENSED PRODUCT which is a NICHE CROP [***] percent ([***]%) for each LICENSED PRODUCT which is a COMMODITY CROP.
Section 3.05 How Payments are Made. All payments to UNIVERSITY pursuant to this AGREEMENT shall be paid in U.S. dollars. Conversion of foreign currency to U. S. dollars shall

APPENDIX B: COMMERCIALIZATION PLAN
Yield10 plans to pursue commercialization efforts using the technology in three crops. The commercialization activity will be carried out in 5 phases with each phase being dependent on the results of the previous phase. Here we will described in detail the approach and timelines for Phase 1 and provide an outline of the key issues to be addressed in each of the subsequent phases. The License Agreement provides for updating the Commercialization Plan
Phase 1, Technical development
Phase 2. Initial field trials of engineered oilseed lines
Phase 3. Processing and product evaluation of seed from field trials
Phase 4. Application for regulatory approval
Phase 5. Commercial launch
Phase l. Technical Development
Two distinct but potentially complementary technologies are included in the license.
Technology 1: PCT Application No. US2016/011386 filed on July 7, 2016 covers the approach of reducing the activity of a key regulator of acetyl-CoA carboxylase activity in plants. Examples in the patent application described a traditional GMO approach using RNAi constructs to reduce the expression of the BadC gene resulting in increased seed oil production.
Technology 2: PCT Application No. US2016/011386 filed on July 6, 2017 used a traditional GMO approach to introduce a gene from a different plant species to increase the level of a subunit of the acetyl-CoA carboxylase enzyme which is naturally present at low concentration. By increasing the level of this subunit in the plants using a transgene, the acetyl-CoA carboxylase activity was increased resulting in a higher oil content. Although not described here in detail Yield10 plans to begin work on developing new lines of Camelina and canola with this trait [***].
Technology 1 requires the reduction or elimination of the regulatory subunit for the acetyl-CoA carboxylase enzyme encoded by the BadC gene making it an ideal target for genome editing. Genome editing is a preferred approach because it has the potential to dramatically reduce regulatory costs and time to market. Yield10 will focus on this technology first and begin work on Technology 2 once we reach the first milestones for Technology 1. We plant to deploy the BadC trait in 3 oilseed crops, Camelina an industrial oilseed, canola a major edible oil crop grown mostly in Canada and soybean. The timelines for development in each of these crops is different with Camelina being the fastest with canola second followed by soybean.

33
Portions of the exhibit, indicated by the mark “[***],” were omitted and have been filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Registrant’s application requesting confidential treatment pursuant to Rule 24b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED

Yield10 has a robust genome editing system in place for Camelina and has produced genome edited lines, completed the documentation, filed for and received non-regulated status for genome edited lines for one of its other gene targets from USDA-APHIS. These lines which have modification to other oil related genes are being scaled up for field studies. Although we refer to the BadC gene, in fact there are a number of copies of this gene in the plant genomes being targeted and there are different numbers of genomes in each plant species.

Camelina: Camelina is the fastest way to validate the performance of the licensed technologies in field trials and has been successfully leveraged by Yield10 for the execution of field testing and optimization of its lead seed yield trait in the last two growing seasons. Genome editing of BadC in Camelina was initiated following the execution of the Exclusive Option Agreement with the University in 2017 with the initial effort focused on identifying all of the copies of the BadC gene in this plant. There are 3 different copies of the BadC gene in the Camelina, an allohexaploid (3 genomes) so 9 BadC gene targets in total. Using the CRISPR/cas9 genome editing tool we developed transgenic lines expressing the Cas9 nuclease and guide RNAs designed to inactivate 6 or 9 of the BadC gene targets at our Research facilities in Canada. We are just beginning the screening process to identify Camelina lines with edits in the BadC gene targets and expect this phase of the work to be completed by [***]. The timelines for the subsequent development of genome edited BadC Camelina lines is shown in the table below. We anticipate having stable edited lines and initial oil content data from greenhouse studies by [***] and then moving forward with field trials as outlined in Phase 2.

Canola: Evaluation of the canola genome has identified 2 BadC genes one of which is present in two copies per genome. The canola germplasm Yield10 is using is a tetraploid making a total of 6 BadC genes to be edited. Editing of the BadC genes has been ongoing and we are now reaching the stage where we will [***].

Phase 2. Initial field trials of engineered oilseed lines ([***])
With the genome editing approach being used by Yield10, the first step will be to [***]. The genome analysis, documentation and application for non-regulated status will be carried out beginning in [***]. It is preferable to wait until non-regulated status is achieved before any field planting including for cage trails to produce clean seed for larger trials. This means that field testing of genome edited lines may not begin until the [***] growing season with data not being available until [***].
As an interim step Yield10 will explore ways to accelerate the development of field data in cooperation with Prof. Thelen, the inventor at U. Missouri [***] both of the licensed technologies that he developed during the research that led to the inventions. These discussions are expected to commence on completion of execution of the License Agreement and this section may be updated pending the outcome of those discussions.
Examples of key objectives of initial field testing are:
Impact of BadC editing on seed emergence and stand establishment
Impact of BadC editing on seed oil content
Impact of BadC editing on shatter and other seed pod characteristics
Impact of BadC editing on seed yield
It will be critical that an increased oil content due to the genome editing of the BadC gene does not create yield drag as this may severely impact the economic viability (oil yield per harvested acre) of the high oil trait.
Milestone: Field validation of the BadC technology and quantitative data on increase on seed oil content in Camelina and impact on seed yield and protein quality.
Phase 3. Processing and product evaluation of seed from field trials ([***])
In order to develop data for regulatory approval and to demonstrate processing of seed produced using BadC edited lines, we plan to harvest all seed from trials and carry out pilot scale extraction studies using both the traditional solvent based and non-solvent based routes. Yieldl 0 staff are familiar with service providers for pilot extraction studies. Although it is simply too early to map these studies out in more detail there are 3 key questions that need to be addressed:
Impact of increased oil content on recovery unit operations
Changes to oil composition
Impact on the increased oil on meal and in particular protein quality
Key economic drivers of the value of the high oil trait will be achieving the same oil composition
and protein meal profile/value.

Milestone: Basic data enabling the development of an economic model for the high oil crops which can be used for future revenue projections.
Phase 4. Application for regulatory approval ([***])
Although we plan to apply for non-regulated status from USDA-APHIS for genome edited BadC lines of Camelina, canola and soybean, additional approvals may be needed from other government agencies (FDA and possibly EPA) prior to commercial launch depending on the target markets.
Milestone: Complete approval for commercial planting and sale.
Phase 5. Commercial launch
During the course of developing lines suitable for commercial launch, Yield10 expects to enter discussions with third parties for both Specialty and Commodity crop applications of the technology. It is simply too early to speculate what those arrangements could look like.

Financial Resources
Yield10 is publicly traded on the NASDAQ market with the ticker symbol YTEN. In 2017, Yield10 raised a total of $17 million in tow public offerings. Proceeds from these offerings is expected to fund the company well into 2019. As part of these offerings the investors received warrants to purchase additional shares at a price of $2.25 per share. Approximately one third of the warrants have a 9 month term with the remainder being for 5 years. In the event all of these warrants get converted in the next 18 months this will result in an additional $20 million of funding. These funds would take the company [***] the key milestones. In addition the company has the ability to raise additional funds through either public or private financings and through partnerships. For example the Company recently signed an Agreement with Monsanto to allow then to test the C3003 yield trait in soybean.
