This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The forward-looking statements contained herein are based largely on the Company's current expectations and assumptions and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. The Company cautions that trading in its ordinary shares is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. The Company expects that following the approval by the District Court of Tel Aviv – Yaffo of the definitive agreement to sell the Company assets, current shareholders may be significantly diluted and/or currently outstanding ordinary shares may have limited value, and urges extreme caution with respect to any existing or future investments in its ordinary shares. In addition, there is no guarantee that the Company will be successful in its appeal before NASDAQ to keep its ordinary shares listed on NASDAQ. The Company makes no commitment to revise or update any forward-looking statements to reflect any facts, events or circumstances after the date any such statement is made that may bear upon any forward-looking statements.
