Description of Exhibit
COVID-19 Filing Exemption
MAGIC SOFTWARE ENTERPRISES LTD.
On March 4, 2020, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) issued an order under Section 36 (Release No. 34-88318) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), granting exemptions from specified provisions of the Exchange Act and certain rules thereunder. On March 25, 2020, the order was modified and superseded by a new SEC order (Release No. 34-88465), which provides conditional relief to public companies that are unable to timely comply with their filing obligations as a result of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) outbreak (the “SEC Order”). The SEC Order provides that a registrant subject to the reporting requirements of Exchange Act Section 13(a) or 15(d), and any person required to make any filings with respect to such registrant, is exempt from any requirement to file or furnish materials with the Commission under Exchange Act Sections 13(a), 13(f), 13(g), 14(a), 14(c), 14(f), 15(d) and Regulations 13A, Regulation 13D-G (except for those provisions mandating the filing of Schedule 13D or amendments to Schedule 13D), 14A, 14C and 15D, and Exchange Act Rules 13f-1, and 14f-1, as applicable, if certain conditions are satisfied.
Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (the “Company”) will be relying on the SEC Order to delay the filing of its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Report”) due to the circumstances related to COVID-19. In particular, COVID-19 has caused severe disruptions in travel and transportation and limited access to the Company’s facilities resulting in limited support from its staff. This has, in turn, delayed the Company’s ability to complete its annual review and prepare the Report. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company expects to file the Report no later than June 14, 2020 (which is 45 days from the Report’s original filing deadline of April 30,
The Company expects to include a specific risk factor in its Annual Report substantially similar to the following (updated as necessary):
A pandemic, epidemic or outbreak of an infectious disease, such as COVID-19, may materially and adversely affect our business and operations.
The recent outbreak of COVID-19 originated in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and has since spread to multiple countries, including the United States and several European countries. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a pandemic. Any outbreak like COVID-19, currently or in the future, may affect global economies such as the United States, Europe and Israel and may affect our operations and those of third parties on which we rely. A pandemic with potential economic impact and duration like the COVID-19 is difficult to assess or predict, and may reduce our ability to access capital, which could negatively impact our short-term and long-term liquidity. These effects could have a material impact on our liquidity, capital resources, operations and business and those of the third parties on which we rely.
Specific to the COVID-19 outbreak, many countries around the world have imposed quarantines and restrictions on travel and mass gatherings to slow the spread of the virus. While many restrictions have been lifted as of April 2020, the Government of Israel previously initiated a total lockdown in some cities and travel between cities in the country was also heavily restricted. The lockdown or quarantine measures may result in material adverse effects if multiple employees and outsource personnel shall be prohibited from attending their positions.
The extent to which COVID-19 impacts our business will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of COVID-19 and the actions to contain COVID-19 or treat its impact, among others.
