Dear Mr./Ms.,

Re: Immediate Report – pledge of Partner shares exercised by an institutional entity
(Immediate Report in accordance with regulation 36(a) of the Securities Regulations (Periodic and Immediate Reports), 5730 – 1970)

Further to the Company’s Immediate Report dated June 16, 2014 (reference no.: 2014-01-091458) regarding the notice from a financial entity, which is one of the Israeli institutional entities (“the Institutional Entity”), of the calling for the immediate repayment of credit that it had provided and of a warning of an exercise of shares of Partner Communications Company Ltd. (“Partner”), which are pledged as collateral for that credit;

The Company hereby reports that the Institutional Entity issued written notice to the Company today that it sold 1,800,360 shares of Partner today (out of the 3,153,579 Partner shares that were pledged in its favor), for the inclusive total of approximately NIS 50.5 million. The Institutional Entity further notified the Company that the proceeds of the sale were credited against repayment of the Company’s outstanding balance of the credit to it and to cover exercise expenses.

The Company shall take action to transfer the balance of the pledged Partner shares to the Company that was not sold as aforesaid (1,353,219 shares) and to remove the current lien on them.

As a result of that stated, the Company expects to recognize a gain from the sale in its financial statements for the second quarter of 2014 (according to the data on the investment in Partner as of March 31, 2014) at the sum of approximately NIS 15 million.

Subsequent to the sale of the shares by the Institutional Entity, the Company holds approximately 11.4% of Partner’s issued and outstanding and share capital (not on a diluted basis and while disregarding treasury shares held by Partner); together with the Company’s parent company, Suny Electronics Ltd., approximately 12.79% of Partner’s issued and outstanding share capital (not on a diluted basis and while disregarding treasury shares held by Partner); and, together with S.B. Telecom Israel Ltd., with whom the Company is engaged in a shareholders’ agreement that regulates their mutual accords in relation to Partner as members of Partner’s control core, approximately 43.65% of Partner’s issued and outstanding share capital (not on a diluted basis and while disregarding treasury shares held by Partner). With regard to the Promotion of Competition and Reduction of Centralization Law, 5774 – 2013, see also the holdings of the Company and Suny Electronics Ltd., together with the “Israeli Entities” of shares of Partner that constitute “Shares held by Israeli Entities” as stated in clause 2.1.5.3 in Part A of the Company’s Periodic Report for the year 2013 (reference no.: 2014-01-037668).

Sincerely,

Scailex Corporation Ltd.
