Further to the Company's report dated November 27, 2019 regarding the receipt of several offers from potential investors for the purchase of the Company's ordinary shares (the "Shell Transaction"), the Company announced today that Company's debenture holders in meetings held on December 24, 2019 and December 26, 2019 voted in favor of the offer submitted by Mr. Yona Levi (the "Offer").
The Offer includes the purchase of 99.99% of the Company's outstanding share capital on a fully diluted basis in consideration of NIS 8.5 million (payable half at closing and half 12 months following closing). The consideration will be paid to the creditors of the Company (and shall be provided to a trustee which will be appointed by the court as part of the Company's creditors’ arrangement).
The Offer includes certain conditions to closing, including the receipt of court approval, confirmation that no resale restrictions will apply on the shares purchased pursuant to Section 15c of the Israeli Securities Law, 1968, and that the Company will not be defined as a “Shell Company” under the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (the “TASE”) rules, and will not be traded on the TASE "Preservation List".
