Elbit Systems Issues a Cash Tender Offer for ITL's Shares

HAIFA, Israel, January 20, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT) ("Elbit Systems") announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Elbit Security Systems Ltd. ("Elsec"), has issued a Cash Tender Offer (the "Tender Offer") to acquire the remaining ordinary shares of I.T.L Optronics Ltd. (TASE: ITL) ("ITL") held by the public. The remaining shares represent 12.15% of ITL's outstanding share capital. The balance, amounting to 87.85% of ITL's outstanding share capital is currently held by Elsec (81.53% on fully diluted basis).

The Tender Offer period will remain open through February 8, 2011 and is for the price of NIS 12.5 (approximately $3.52) per share and for a total consideration of approximately NIS 18.8 million (approximately $5.3 million). The Tender Offer will not be implemented if holders representing 5% or more of the total outstanding ITL ordinary shares do not accept the Tender Offer. Thus, there is no assurance at this stage that the Tender Offer will be completed. If the dissenting shareholders represent less than 5% of the total outstanding ITL ordinary shares, then all ITL's outstanding ordinary shares held by the public, including those of any dissenting shareholders, shall be purchased by Elsec at the tender price and ITL will be consequently delisted from trade on the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange. Prior to publishing the Tender Offer, Elsec received irrevocable consents from holders of approximately 8.85% of ITL's shares (8.21% on fully diluted basis) to accept the Tender Offer. The Tender Offer documents, detailing the terms of the offer, have been filed with the Israeli Securities Authority and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
