    Weekly Stock ListESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) investing continues to grow. According to Opimas, a management consultancy focused on global capital markets, global assets under management in ESG strategies had grown to $40.5 trillion in 2020, doubling in four years and tripling in eight years. As assets have flowed in over the past 40 years, Sustainable Impact Investing has evolved. The discipline, originally known as Socially Responsible Investing, focused at first on excluding companies that conducted business in South Africa, or participated in industries such as tobacco, alcohol and firearms. In time, the list of industries to avoid increased to include soft drinks, fast food, and oil and gas, among numerous others. Performance of these initial strategies lagged, and the approach has been modified. Now, instead of merely identifying industries to avoid, the discipline promotes "sustainable" business practices across all industries that can have an "impact" on global issues such as the climate, hunger, poverty, disease, shelter, and workers' rights. For our part, we track ESG developments at specific companies as part of our Management analysis - one of the six points in our proprietary Six-Point Fundamental Approach. In addition to following the ESG proclamations from the companies under coverage, we partner with an ESG research firm, the JUST Capital Foundation, and leverage its analysis and insights as well. JUST Capital's mission is to drive measurable corporate change to create a stakeholder-centric, inclusive form of capitalism that reflects the priorities of the American public. JUST utilizes a combination of data-driven research and strategic engagement in an attempt to shift norms and practices in corporate America and the financial markets. Environment, and Shareholders. JUST ESG Custom Ratings rank stocks in the Russell 1000 on these criteria using a scale of 1-100. Drawing on the JUST Capital rankings, we have compiled focused lists of companies followed by Argus Research that are in position to have this type of "sustainable impact" on the environment, workplace, community, and marketplace. These firms have exemplary records not only in delivering on the bottom line, but also in improving the environment, contributing to community relations, and showing respect for their employees. We have lists focused on the top companies in each sector, as well as lists of companies that score well on certain financial metrics, such as yield, beta, value, and momentum. We also have a Theme Model Portfolio based in part on the ESG criteria. To build the Argus U.S. ESG Model Portfolio, we applied financial concepts such as industry diversification, income generation, risk reduction and growth at a reasonable price to our various lists. In addition, all stocks must be on the Argus BUY list. Here are the new stocks that have been added to the Argus U.S. ESG Model Portfolio.

Comments of Management Commenting on the results, Guy Bernstein, CEO of Formula Systems, said: “We are very pleased to kick off 2021 on a strong note across our entire investment portfolio reaching all-time highs across all of our key indices (revenues, gross profit, operating income, EBITDA and net income). Our strong results evidence our continued focus on the execution of our growth strategy. We plan to continue our efforts across our entire portfolio to adhere to our core values of innovation, professionalism, agility and transparency which allow us to continue our growth and protect our leading position.” “Matrix reported its best first quarter in history with record-breaking results recorded across all its financial indices. Matrix reported a record-breaking backlog of approximately NIS 4.5 billion, reflecting an increase of 12.5% compared to the same period last year. Despite a slow-down recorded across Matrix’s U.S. Governance, Risk and Compliance segment, we preferred to retain our quality personnel to be well positioned when the U.S financial sector recovers from the COVID-19 period in the short term. We are pleased with Matrix’s continued recognition as a market leader in the implementation of fastest-growing technologies, such as cloud, cyber, digital, data, AI and MA which enables the company to create significant value for its customers in managing, streamlining, accelerating and making their businesses thrive. As Israel’s leading technology partner Matrix is well positioned to meet the increasing demand for digital services, cloud services, infrastructure, computing, and data analytics.” “Sapiens opened 2021 on a strong note, with record first quarter Non-GAAP revenues of $110 million, 22% higher than in the same period last year and strong Non-GAAP operating margin of 17.2%, improving by 110 basis points, compared to the same period last year. The results demonstrate how well Sapiens is executing its proven “Land and Expand” strategy, which enables it to grow in the highly regulated and regionally diverse global insurance markets and validate its operating leverage. Sapiens updated its operating profit margin guidance, due to its plan initiated this quarter to manage its growth and investment in delivery capabilities in the North American P&C CoreSuite business and following the recent spike in COVID-19 in India, which will increase Sapiens’ labor costs in the short term. As a result of these two factors, operating margin in 2021 is expected to be in the range of 17.0% to 17.4% compared to the previous expected range of 17.7% to 18.0%. In addition, Sapiens increased its 2021 revenue guidance to a range of $459 to $464 million from its prior range of $457 to $463 million.” “Magic Software’s solid execution in the first quarter delivered 26% revenue growth, with non-GAAP operating margin increasing to 14.0% from 12.9% in the same period last year. Magic’s revenue growth in the first quarter validates its strategy of building a broad business portfolio, which provides the foundation for its continued solid performance and growth. With a strategic focus, increasing global market demand for digital transformations and the steps Magic has taken over the past year to streamline its business activity, Magic Software is well positioned for continued strong financial performance. Magic increased its 2021 revenue guidance to a range of $425 to $435 million from its prior range of $420 to $430 million.” “Michpal Group continues to realize synergies and monetize on its business model with its revenues, growing by 29% year over year to ILS 25 million, with 57% accounted to organic growth. Michpal Group is well positioned to continue helping its customers to adjust to the ever-changing governmental labor guidelines.” “TSG (held equally by Formula and Israel Aerospace Industries) also started the year on a high note, with solid revenues and a 60% increase in operating income. We are proud that during the current operation in Gaza, the IDF is widely using the advanced systems provided by TSG and local authorities in the conflict zone which are using TSG's Command and Control system to successfully manage complex situations arising in their regions.” “Lastly, we are very pleased to welcome Zap Group, a leading group of consumer sites in Israel and a well-reputable brand in the Israeli market, offering a wide range of solutions in the field of advertising, website promotion and targeted mailing. The solutions offered by Zap Group enable small and medium-size businesses to manage their commercial relationship with their consumers in a more efficient and accurate manner by using its digital marketing tools and customer targeting solutions based on big data, media and digital platforms, thereby generating significant value. The acquisition of ZAP Group, which was concluded in April 2021 serves as another milestone in Formula's strategy to offer digital based solutions to small and medium-size businesses. We will endeavor to create synergies between the business activities of Zap Group and other activities within the Formula Group, initially in the Israeli market and thereafter worldwide. The consideration for the acquisition of 100% of the outstanding share capital of ZAP Group was approximately NIS 240 million in cash (subject to certain adjustments) with a contingent amount of up to NIS 60 million in cash (up to a total purchase price of approximately NIS 300 million), subject to Zap Group meeting certain EBITDA targets during the first two years following the acquisition.” Stand-Alone Financial Measures This press release presents, further below, certain stand-alone financial measures to reflect Formula’s stand-alone financial position in reference to its assets and liabilities as the parent company of the group. These financial measures are prepared consistent with the accounting principles applied in the consolidated financial statements of the group. Such measures include investments in subsidiaries and a jointly controlled entity measured at cost adjusted by Formula’s share in the investees’ accumulated undistributed earnings and other comprehensive income or loss. Formula believes that these financial measures provide useful information to management and investors regarding Formula’s stand-alone financial position. Formula’s management uses these measures to compare the Company’s performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses. These measures are also used in financial reports prepared for management and in quarterly financial reports presented to the Company’s board of directors. The Company believes that the use of these stand-alone financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating Formula’s financial position. Management of the Company does not consider these stand-alone measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Formula urges investors to review the consolidated financial statements which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, including this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business or financial position.
