disposition of securities) or (3) an opinion of counsel, if such opinion shall be

As used in this Agreement, the term (A) “Registrable Securities” means
(i) the Ordinary Shares of the Company issued hereunder (the “Shares”);
and (ii) any securities issued or issuable with respect to shares
acquired or exercised by the Purchasers by way of bonus shares, share
splits or share conversions on account of the Shares; the term “Securities
Act” means the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended; the term
“registration” means registration under the Securities Act;
and the term “Commission” means the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission; and (B) “Underwritten Offering” means
a registration in connection with which securities are sold to an
underwriter for re-offering to the public pursuant to an effective
Securities. As to any particular Registrable Securities, such securities
will cease to be Registrable Securities when they have been effectively
registered under the Securities Act and/or any other applicable securities law,
although they will again become Registrable Securities if later deregistered.
Registration. Immediately after the Closing of the Stock Purchase
Agreement, the Purchaser(s) holding a majority of the Shares may on one
instance request that BVR shall file a registration statement (the “Registration
Statement’) registering the Registrable Securities and will endeavor to
have such Registration Statement declared effective by the Commission as soon
as practicable thereafter. BVR agrees to use its best efforts to keep the
Registration Statement continuously effective for a period of at least one
hundred and eighty (180) days following the date on which the Registration
Statement is initially declared effective or such shorter period as will
terminate when all of the shares covered by the Registration Statement have
been sold pursuant to the Registration Statement. BVR further agrees, if
necessary, to supplement or amend the Registration Statement, if required by
the rules, regulations or instructions applicable to the registration form used
by BVR for such Registration Statement or by the Securities Act or by any other
rules and regulations there under for shelf registration.
Purchaser may participate in any Underwritten Offering hereunder unless such Purchaser (i)
agrees to sell its Registrable Securities on the basis provided in any underwriting
agreements entered into in connection therewith and (ii) completes and executes all
questionnaires, powers of attorney, indemnities, underwriting agreements and other
documents required under the terms of such agreements.
to Piggyback. Whenever BVR proposes to register any of its securities under
the Securities Act (other than pursuant to a registration primarily for sales
of shares or options to employees of BVR), and the registration form to be used
is suitable for the registration of the Registrable Securities (a “Piggyback
Registration”) (it being understood that Form S-8 and Form F-4 may not be
used for such purposes), BVR will give written notice to the holders of
Registrable Securities of its intention to effect such a registration and,
subject to the priority provisions of Section 5.5 below, will include in such
registration all the Registrable Securities with respect to which BVR has
received written requests for inclusions therein within 30 days after BVR gives
such notice. Such notice shall be delivered to the holders of Registrable
Securities at least thirty (30) days prior to the initial filing of a
Registration Statement with the Commission.
on Primary Registrations. If a Piggyback Registration is an underwritten
offering of BVR’ Securities (“BVR’ Securities”) and the
managing underwriters advise BVR in writing that in their opinion the number of
securities requested to be included in such registration exceeds the number
that can be sold in such offering without adversely affecting such underwriters’ ability
to effect an orderly distribution of such securities, BVR will include in such
registration: (i) BVR’ Securities; (ii) the number of Registrable
Securities and unregistered securities held by other shareholders of BVR (“Unregistered
Securities”) requested to be included that, in the opinion of such
underwriters, can be sold prorata, among the holders of such
securities on the basis of the number of Registrable Securities or Unregistered
Securities then owned by each such holder.
Procedures. Whenever the holders of Registrable Securities have requested
that any Registrable Securities be registered pursuant to this Agreement, BVR
will use its best efforts to effect the registration with the proper
authorities in the United States and Israel and the sale of such Registrable
Securities in accordance with the intended method of disposition thereof and to
list such shares on the stock exchange on which BVR’ shares are then
trading. In connection therewith, BVR will make available for inspection by any
seller of Registrable Securities, and any attorney, accountant, or any other
agent retained by such seller, all pertinent financial and other records, other
pertinent corporate documents of BVR, and cause BVR’ respective officers,
directors, and employees to supply all information reasonably requested by such
seller, attorney, accountant, or agent in connection with such Registration
Expenses. BVR shall be responsible for all registration expenses incurred in
connection with the transactions described in Sections 5.3 and 5.4. Registration expenses
include all expenses incident to BVR’ performance of or compliance with this
Agreement, including without limitation expenses incurred in connection with the
preparation of a prospectus. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, all underwriters’ discounts
and commissions in respect of the sale of Registrable Securities shall be paid by the
sellers, pro rata in accordance with the number of shares sold in the offering,
and the sellers shall bear the expense of their legal counsel, if separate from BVR’ legal
Indemnity. BVR hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Purchasers, and their
directors, officers, employees, agents and controlling persons (each, an “Indemnified
Person”) (within the meaning of section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20(a) of
the Exchange Act), from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, damages and
expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) asserted against
or incurred by any such Indemnified Person which shall be caused by any untrue statement
of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement or prospectus relating to the
Registrable Securities, including any amendment or supplement thereto, or shall be caused
by any omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or
necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, except insofar as such losses,
claims, damages, liabilities and expenses shall be caused by any untrue statement or
omission based upon information furnished in writing to BVR by the Purchasers or on the
Purchaser’s behalf for use therein.
Indemnity. Each of the Purchasers participating in registration hereunder will
indemnify and hold harmless BVR, any underwriter of BVR and each person, if any, who
controls BVR or such underwriter, from and against any and all losses, damages, claims,
liabilities, costs or expenses (including any amounts paid in any settlement effected
with the selling shareholder’s consent) to which BVR, any such underwriter or any
such controlling person may become subject under applicable law or otherwise, insofar as
such losses, damages, claims, liabilities (or actions or proceedings in respect thereof),
costs or expenses arise out of or are based on (i) any untrue statement of any material
fact contained in the Registration Statement or included in the prospectus, as amended or
supplemented, or (ii) the omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated
therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances in
which they were made, not misleading, and each such Purchaser will reimburse BVR, any
such underwriter and each such controlling person of BVR or any such underwriter,
promptly upon demand, for any reasonable legal or other expenses incurred by them in
connection with investigating, preparing to defend or defending against or appearing as a
third-party witness in connection with such loss, claim, damage, liability, action or
proceeding; in each case to the extent, that such untrue statement or omission is
contained in any information so furnished in writing by such Purchaser to BVR
specifically for inclusion in the Registration Statement or such Prospectus and that such
information was reasonably relied upon by BVR for use in the Registration Statement, such
Prospectus or such form of prospectus or to the extent that such information related to
such Purchaser or such Purchaser’s proposed method of distribution of Registrable
Securities and was reviewed and expressly approved in writing by such Purchaser expressly
for use in the Registration Statement, such Prospectus or such form of prospectus; provided,
however, that the indemnity agreement contained in this Section 5.8.2 shall not
apply to amounts paid in settlement of any losses if such settlement is effected without
the prior written consent of such Purchaser. In no event shall the liability of any
selling Purchaser hereunder be greater in amount than the dollar amount of the net
proceeds received by such Purchaser upon the sale of the Registrable Securities giving
rise to such indemnification obligation. .
