TEL AVIV, Israel, Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioLight Israeli Life Sciences Investments Ltd. (TASE: BOLT.TA), a firm that invests in, manages and commercializes biomedical innovations grouped into clusters around defined medical conditions, announced today that it has received approval from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to commence its American Depository Receipt (ADR) program. Over-the-counter (OTC) trading in the BioLight ADR Level 1 will commence on January 22 under the ticker symbol "BLGTY" (CUSIP Number: 09072W103). Each ADR will be comprised of 100 ordinary shares of BioLight.
The ADR Level 1 listing is a part of the Company's ongoing strategy to increase awareness and exposure of its business and technologies to strategic foreign investors, global investment funds and the international capital markets in general.
Suzana Nahum Zilberberg, BioLight's CEO, commented, "The trading of BioLight shares in the U.S. through this ADR program will allow us to further share our unique business model and our leading technologies with a broader spectrum of international partners and investors, while better enabling non-Israeli investors to invest in BioLight's equity. We believe that initiating this ADR program while two products are in the initial commercialization stage demonstrates an important opportunity to increase the public exposure of our business model and our additional products in development. We believe that BioLight is very strongly positioned to execute additional commercialization agreements in the near term and to expand and diversify our investors' and partners' portfolio."
Ms. Nahum Zilberberg added, "In the coming months, we also expect many other value-creating events to occur. We look forward to continually increasing the exposure of BioLight's unique business and technologies among international investors and partners."
