 1.Application for Certification of Class Action



Item 1

Application for Certification of Class Action
 
The Company hereby reports that it was served yesterday an application for certification of a class action (the “Application”), that was filed to the district court in Tel Aviv, against the Company, against Israel Corporation Ltd. and the controlling shareholder of Israel Corporation (jointly hereinafter: the “Respondents”).
 
The Application includes a series of allegations relating to alleged misleading and violation of the Company’s reporting and disclosure duties to the public under the Israeli Securities Law, 5728-1968, on several different occasions specified in the Application, in connection with the implications of the claim filed by the State of Israel in 2011 against its subsidiary, Dead Sea Works Ltd., relating to payment of royalties to the State under the Dead Sea Concession Law, 5721-1961. The State's claim was conducted between the parties within an arbitration proceeding.
 
The alleged causes of misleading and violation relates, among other, to incomplete and\or misleading reporting allegation regarding the progress of the arbitration proceeding; the State’s consent as to the manner of calculation of the royalties; the real value of the Company’s equity; the intermediate arbitration award given within the arbitration proceeding and the implications thereof. In addition, the Applicant claims that the Company has failed to make a provision in its financial statements, when allegedly required to do so by law, with respect said claim.
 
The Applicant is a shareholder of the Company, who held Company shares during the allegedly relevant period, on behalf of a represented class including all those who acquired Company shares from August 17, 2011 and held them until May 27, 2014. According to the Applicant such group incurred damages due to the Company’s conduct, and accordingly, the Court is requested to rule in their favor the entire sum of damage allegedly caused to them, at the amount of approx. ILS 133 million (about $40.4 million).
 
The Company rejects the claims made in the Application and will respond to the claims within the framework of the legal proceeding.
