MTI Wireless Edge Ltd

("MTI" or the "Company")

 

Transactions by PDMRs and substantial shareholders

 

Highlights

·    A total of 3,650,000 existing Ordinary Shares in the Company have been sold to institutional and other investors at a price of 80p per share.

·    A series of investor presentations was completed by MTI following the recent publication of its Annual Results.

·    Following resultant interest from a range of new and existing institutional and private investors, MTI has arranged for a limited release of equity from certain key shareholders.

·    The Board believes that this should enhance MTI's profile in the UK public markets and provide additional liquidity for MTI's publically-traded shares

 

Background

Following the publication of the Company's Final Results for the year ended 31 December 2020, MTI Wireless Edge Ltd. (AIM: MWE) embarked on a series of investor meetings and discussions, via the Company's brokers, Allenby Capital Limited ("Allenby") and Peterhouse Capital Limited ("Peterhouse"). Following this Roadshow, Allenby and Peterhouse reported to the Company that there was interest amongst the parties met to invest into MTI. Given the relative lack of liquidity in the market for the Company's shares and with the Company adequately financed for its current business plans, the Company has sought to at least partially satisfy this new interest via arranging for certain existing, long-term shareholders to release some shares.

Against this background the Company announces that it was informed on 24 March 2021 of the following sales of the Company's ordinary shares of 0.01 Israeli shekels each ("Ordinary Shares") which were made by certain of the Company's persons discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMRs") and substantial shareholders.  These Ordinary Shares have been sold to institutional and other investors. 

On 24 March 2021, Mokirei Aya Ltd, a company controlled by members of the Borovitz family (including Zvi Borovitz, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Moni Borovitz, Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Company), sold 2,412,613 Ordinary Shares at a price of 80p per share. Following this sale, Mokirei Aya Ltd has an interest in 26,420,895 Ordinary Shares, equivalent to 29.84% of the voting rights in the Company.  Zvi Borovitz and Moni Borovitz are beneficially interested in 1,146,429 and 371,254 Ordinary Shares respectively and these holdings remain unchanged, representing 1.29% and 0.42% of the voting rights in the Company respectively.

On 24 March 2021, Dov Feiner, Director of the Company and general manager of the Company's antenna division, sold 304,123 Ordinary Shares at a price of 80p per share. Following this sale, Dov Feiner is beneficially interested in 3,528,265 Ordinary Shares, equivalent to 3.98% of the voting rights in the Company.

On 24 March 2021, Menashe Mani, an executive in the company, sold 153,546 Ordinary Shares at a price of 80p per share. Following this sale, Menashe Mani is beneficially interested in 2,025,309 Ordinary Shares, equivalent to 2.29% of the voting rights in the Company.

On 24 March 2021, Jacques and Rina Beer, who are collectively a substantial shareholder in the Company, sold 779,718 Ordinary Shares at a price of 80p per share. Following this sale, Jacques and Rina Beer are collectively beneficially interested in 9,097,042 Ordinary Shares, equivalent to 10.27% of the voting rights in the Company.
