Foresight Announced One-For-Thirty ADS Ratio Change

Ness Ziona, Israel --News Direct-- Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: FRSX) (“Foresight” or the “Company”), an innovator in automotive vision systems, today announced that it plans to change the ratio of its American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) to its Ordinary Shares (the “ADS Ratio”), no par value per share, from the current ADS Ratio of one (1) ADS to five (5) Ordinary Shares, to a new ADS Ratio of one (1) ADS to thirty (30) Ordinary Shares (the “ADS Ratio Change”). The Company anticipates that the ADS Ratio Change will be effective on or about April 21, 2023.

There will be no change to the Company’s Ordinary Shares. The effect of the ADS Ratio Change on the ADS trading price on the Nasdaq Capital Market is expected to take place at the open of trading on April 21, 2023 (U.S. Eastern Time). Effective April 21, 2023, ADS holders of record in certified form will be required on a mandatory basis to surrender their ADSs to the depositary bank for the Company’s ADS program, The Bank of New York Mellon (the “Depositary Bank”), for cancellation and will receive one (1) new ADS in exchange for every six (6) existing ADSs then held in connection with the ADS Ratio Change, with further details to be provided in the notice by the Depositary Bank. Holders of uncertificated ADSs in the Direct Registration System (DRS) and in The Depository Trust Company (DTC) will have their ADSs automatically exchanged and need not take any action. The exchange of every six (6) then-held (existing) ADSs for one (1) new ADS will occur automatically, at the effective date, with the then-held ADSs being canceled and new ADSs being issued by the Depositary Bank.

As of the effective date for the ADS Ratio Change, the Company’s ADSs will continue to be traded on the Nasdaq under the symbol “FRSX” with a new CUSIP Number. The Company will file a post-effective amendment to its registration statement on Form F-6 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission to reflect the ADS Ratio Change.

The ADS Ratio Change will not impact any shareholder’s percentage ownership of the Company or voting power. No fractional new ADSs will be issued in connection with the change in the ADS ratio. Instead, fractional entitlements to new ADSs will be aggregated and sold by the Depositary Bank and the net cash proceeds from the sale of the fractional ADS entitlements (after deduction of fees, taxes and expenses) will be distributed to the applicable ADS holders by the Depositary Bank.

As a result of the change in the ADS Ratio, the ADS price is expected to increase proportionally, although the Company can give no assurance that the ADS price after the change in the ADS ratio will be equal to or greater than the ADS price on a proportionate basis. The Company believes that the change in the ADS Ratio will help the Company to maintain compliance with Nasdaq listing requirements. However, the Company can give no assurance that this goal will be achieved.
