OPTIBASE LTD. REQUESTS THE TEL AVIV STOCK EXCHANGE TO DELIST ITS SHARES - PRNewswire
HERZLIYA, Israel, Jan. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Optibase Ltd. (NASDAQ: OBAS), the Company or Optibase, today announced that its board of directors resolved to delist the Company's ordinary shares from trading on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange Ltd. ("TASE"). Under applicable Israeli law, the delisting of the Company's ordinary shares from trading on the TASE will become effective at least upon the lapse of three months from the date hereof, during such time the Company's ordinary shares will continue to trade on the TASE. The Company has notified TASE of its intention to delist its ordinary shares from TASE on April 13, 2022, however, the exact delisting date is subject to the approval of the TASE. The Company will announce the exact date for delisting following the approval of the TASE for the delisting date. Following the delisting of the Company's ordinary shares from the TASE, the Company will no longer be subject to any reporting requirements in Israel, under the Israeli securities law.
The ordinary shares of Optibase will continue to be listed on the Nasdaq Global Market.
Amir Philips, CEO of Optibase, said, "as most trading in the Company's ordinary shares is made on Nasdaq, the local trading volume in Optibase's ordinary shares remained minimal since their listing for trade on the TASE in April 29, 2015. The majority of Optibase's investors are operating in the US market. In addition, the Company's bonds which were traded on the TASE, were fully repaid on December 29, 2021. Accordingly, we concluded that it is in the interest of the Company to delist its ordinary shares from the TASE ".
Optibase invests in the fixed-income real estate field and currently holds interests in real estate properties in Switzerland, Texas, Philadelphia, PA, Miami, FL, and in Chicago, IL, USA and is currently looking for additional real estate investment opportunities. Optibase was previously engaged in the field of digital video technologies until the sale of its video solutions business to Optibase Technologies Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of VITEC Multimedia in July 2010.
