PR Newswire

TEL AVIV, Israel, June 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Elbit Imaging Ltd. ("EI" or the "Company") (TASE, NASDAQ: EMITF) announced today that InSightec Ltd. ("InSightec") has entered into a Series D Preferred Share Purchase Agreement with York Global Finance II S.a r.l. (an affiliate of York Capital Management) (the "Investor"), pursuant to which the Investor and certain Subsequent Investors (as defined below), shall invest between US$50 and US$62.5 million in InSightec (the "Transaction"). The Company holds approximately 90% of the share capital of Elbit Medical Technologies Ltd. ("Elbit Medical") (TASE:EMTC-M) which, in turn, holds approximately 48.2% (42.3% on a fully diluted basis) of the share capital in InSightec. As part of the transaction, Elbit Medical and other current shareholders of InSightec have agreed to amend the Securityholders Agreement among them.

The main terms of the Transaction are as follows:

  1. At closing ("Closing"), the Investor has invested US$37.5 million in InSightec in consideration for 19,332,212 Series D Preferred Shares. In addition, the foreign investor with whom InSightec was negotiating an investment transaction, as announced by Elbit Medical on April 13, 2013 (the "Potential Investor") may invest US$12.5 million in InSightec, in consideration for 6,444,404 Series D Preferred Shares, upon written notice within 45 days from Closing.  In addition, the existing shareholders of InSightec (including Elbit Medical, pro-rata among them) (the "Existing Shareholders") will have the right to invest up to an additional US$12.5 million in InSightec, in consideration for 6,444,404 series D preferred shares, within 45 days from Closing.  The Existing Shareholders may extend the 45 day period by an additional 45 days in certain circumstances.  (Each of the Existing Shareholders and/or the Potential Investor is referred to as a "Subsequent Investor").
  2. If the Subsequent Investors do not choose to invest in the Series D round or if the Existing Shareholders do not invest the full US$12.5 million, then the Investor will be required to purchase additional Series D Preferred Shares at the same purchase price, as necessary to assure that the aggregate amount invested in InSightec shall be at least $50 million.  In addition, the Investor may purchase additional Series D Preferred Shares not purchased by the Subsequent Investors up a total investment in the round of US$62.5 million.
  3. The Transaction reflects a pre money valuation of InSightec of US$ 200 million (on a fully diluted, as-converted basis).
  4. In the event the InSightec's aggregate revenues for 2014 and 2015 as reflected in its annual audited financial statements for such years are less than $60,000,000, the Series D price per share will be adjusted proportionately and the Investor and Subsequent Investors shall be issued additional Series D Preferred Shares, provided, however, that the price per share shall not be reduced by more than 8%.
  5. As part of the Investment Agreement, the parties have agreed to changes in the Securityholders Agreement among InSightec shareholders, including increasing the maximum number of directors to 11, of which Elbit Medical (as well as GE and the Investor; Elbit Medical, GE and the Investor, collectively, shall be referred to herein as the "Major Securityholders") and its transferees, together with their respective affiliates and transferees, will be entitled to appoint two persons as long as they hold in the aggregate 12.5% or more, and one person so long as such Major Securityholder, together with its affiliates and transferees, beneficially holds less than 12.5% but 5% or more. In addition, the Major Securityholders will be entitled to jointly appoint three additional directors. Should the Potential Investor choose to invest in the Series D round the full amount of US$12.5 million it will have a right to appoint one director. InSightec's CEO shall also serve as a director. The Major Securityholders will be entitled to jointly appoint the CEO.
  6. The parties further agreed to amend the Technology, Co-operation, and Distribution Agreement between GE Healthcare ("GEHC") and InSightec, dated October 17, 2012, so that the product exclusively granted to GEHC, will terminate, and in exchange, InSightec will pay to GEHC a quarterly royalty on a going forward basis equal to 15% of the net selling price of the first 250 products directly or indirectly sold to customers other than GEHC for use with MRI or other scanners manufactured by companies other than GEHC or any GEHC affiliates. InSightec may elect to terminate its obligations, by so notifying GEHC and paying GEHC an amount equal to $10 million, less any royalties previously paid by InSightec to GEHC pursuant to the above agreement. Upon such election and payment, certain licenses granted by GEHC to InSightec shall terminate.
