GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, December 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ and TASE: CIMT) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a cash distribution of NIS 1.60 (approximately US$0.43) per share on outstanding ordinary shares, representing a total distribution of approximately $4.0 million.
The distribution is payable on February 4th, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of business on January 17th, 2013.
This distribution will be made from paid-in capital, following a court approval that was given in April 2012, allowing the distribution of up to $10M to Cimatron shareholders, and following a ruling that was recently obtained from the Israeli Tax Authority. Further distributions under the said court approval and tax ruling, if any, are subject to subsequent Board approval of specific payments out of the total potential distribution amount.
Concurrently with the announcement of the cash distribution, the Company also announces today that its Board of Directors has resolved to delist its shares from the TASE. Consequently, Cimatron intends to apply to the TASE and request that TASE initiate the delisting process. The delisting in Israel will not affect Cimatron's continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market in the United States.
"Our confidence in continued profitability and positive cash flows going forward, together with the conclusion of the regulatory process, allow us to unlock value to our shareholders. We will examine further distributions subject to our cash needs and market conditions," remarked Yossi Ben-Shalom, Cimatron's Chairman of the Board of Directors. "We have decided to delist from the TASE as we realized that such listing added no significant value to our shareholders. We will continue being listed and traded on NASDAQ as usual," Concluded Mr. Ben Shalom.
Under applicable Israeli law, the delisting of Cimatron's shares from trading on the TASE will take place 90 days after the date of this announcement and the publication thereof in Israeli newspapers which is expected to be on or about April 1, 2013. During the interim period, Cimatron's ordinary shares will continue to be traded on the TASE.
Cimatron will announce the exact date of its TASE delisting when it becomes available.
