(ELTK), a global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards, today provided an update to stockholders regarding the Company's rights offering and the key dates and terms relative to the offering.
A registration statement relating to the rights offering has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") but has not yet become effective. The securities described below to be offered by exercising the rights distributed in the rights offering may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective.
Under the proposed rights offering, Eltek will distribute to its holders of ordinary shares as of March 18, 2019, at no charge, five non-transferable subscription rights for each three ordinary shares held or deemed held on the record date. Each right will entitle the holder to purchase one ordinary share, at a subscription price of $1.464 per ordinary share. The subscription rights are non-transferable and may only be exercised during the anticipated subscription period of March 18, 2019 through 5:00 PM ET on April 9, 2019, unless extended by Eltek.

- Tuesday April 9, 2019: Subscription Period Ends 5:00 PM ET
The Company also announced today that Nistec Golan Ltd., its controlling shareholder, informed it that instead of converting the debt owed to it into ordinary shares (as previously expected), it will participate in the rights offering by means of a cash investment of at least $2.5 million.
Holders who exercise their subscription rights in full will be entitled, if available, to subscribe for additional ordinary shares that are not purchased by other shareholders, on a pro rata basis.
"We look forward to a successful rights offering, which will bring the Company back in compliance with the shareholders' equity requirements of NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(b)(1) and improve our working capital position", said Mr. Eli Yaffe, CEO of Eltek.
