Shareholders who hold their shares in “street name”, meaning in the name of a bank, broker or other record holder, may either direct the record holder of their shares how to vote their shares or obtain a legal proxy from the record holder to vote at the Meeting on behalf of the record hold together with a proof of such record holder with respect to the holding of the shares on the record date.
A shareholder, whose shares are registered with a member of the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange Ltd. (the “TASE”), is required to prove his or her share ownership in order to vote at the Meeting. Such shareholder will provide the Company with an ownership certificate (as of the Record Date) from that TASE member. Each such shareholder is entitled to receive the ownership certificate in the branch of the TASE member or by mail to his or her address (in consideration of mailing fees only), and is also entitled to receive for no charge, a link to the text of the proxy card and to any Position Statements (as defined below) posted on the Israel Securities Authority website (unless the shareholder notified the TASE member that the shareholder is not so interested); provided that the notice was provided with respect to a particular securities account prior to the Record Date.
The Israel Securities Authority has set up an electronic voting system for shareholder meetings of Israeli companies whose shares are listed on the TASE via its online platform. Shareholders are able to vote their shares through the system, following a registration process, no later than six (6) hours before the time fixed for the Meeting, i.e., by Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 6:30 a.m., local time.
A shareholder may attend the Meeting and vote in person or appoint a proxy to participate and vote on his or her behalf at the Meeting (subject to the provisions of the Company's articles of association). An appointment of a proxy must be in writing, signed by the shareholder and delivered to the Company's registered office at least four (4) hours before the Meeting, i.e., by Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. local time. In addition, shareholders who are unable to attend the Meeting in person may vote with respect to the items on the Meeting's agenda by means of a proxy card that is attached to the accompanying Proxy Statement. These shareholders are requested to complete, date and sign the enclosed proxy card and return it promptly in the pre-addressed envelope provided so that it is received by the Company at least four (4) hours before the Meeting. No postage is required if mailed in the United States. Shareholders who attend the Meeting may revoke their proxies and vote their shares in person.
Shareholders are permitted to express their position on the proposals on the agenda of this Meeting by submitting a written statement (the "Position Statement"), through the Company, to the other shareholders. Position Statements should be submitted to the Company at its registered offices, at Elbit Systems Ltd., Advanced Technology Center, Haifa, 3100401 Israel, to the attention of Mrs. Ronit Zmiri, Corporate Secretary, no later than Sunday, April 1, 2018.
A form of the proxy card and a copy of each Position Statement submitted (if submitted) will be available to the public on the distribution website of the Israeli Securities Authority at www.magna.isa.gov.il, on the website of the TASE at www.tase.co.il and also on the website of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") at www.sec.gov. A shareholder may apply to the Company directly in order to receive a copy of the proxy card and any Position Statement submitted (if submitted).
A copy of the accompanying Proxy Statement, which includes the full version of the proposed resolutions, may be reviewed at the Company's offices at the Advanced Technology Center, Haifa, 3100401 Israel, after coordinating in advance with the Corporate Secretary (Tel: 972 772946632) between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Israel time, Sunday - Thursday and may also be reviewed at the distribution website of the Israeli Securities Authority at www.magna.isa.gov.il, on the website of the TASE at www.tase.co.il, on the website of the SEC at www.sec.gov and on the website of the Company at www.elbitsystems.com.
