Alvarion(R) Announces 1:10 Reverse Split of Ordinary Shares Effective Today

Alvarion(R) Announces 1:10 Reverse Split of Ordinary Shares Effective Today

TEL AVIV, Israel, April 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alvarion^®
Ltd.(Nasdaq:ALVR) (TASE:ALVR) (Alvarion or the Company), a global provider of
optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage
and capacity challenges of public and private networks, announced today that
effective as of immediately prior to the opening of trading today (Tuesday,
April 2, 2013), its ordinary shares have been subject to a reverse split on a
1:10 basis and are expected to trade on a post-reverse split basis when the
NASDAQ market opens today. The Company's ordinary shares continue to trade on
NASDAQ and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) under the symbol ALVR, and have
been assigned a new CUSIP number – M0861T118. The Company's ordinary shares
began to trade on a post-reverse split basis on the TASE this morning.

Upon effectiveness of the reverse split, shareholders hold one share of
Alvarion in exchange for every 10 shares held by them prior to the
effectiveness of the reverse split. The reverse split has reduced the number
of outstanding ordinary shares of the Company from approximately 63 million to
approximately 6.3 million. Proportional adjustments have been automatically
made to Alvarion's outstanding stock options and other convertible securities.
Alvarion has not issued any fractional shares as a result of the reverse
split. Instead, all fractional shares have been rounded up to the next whole
number of shares.

As previously reported by Alvarion, the reverse split is intended to increase
the per share trading price of the Company's ordinary shares to satisfy the
$1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on the NASDAQ
Capital Market prior to April 24, 2013. There can be no assurance that the
reverse split will have the desired effect of raising the trading price of the
Company's ordinary shares in a manner that meets such requirement.

Shareholders holding shares in "street name" will not need to do anything in
connection with the reverse split, as their share totals will be adjusted
automatically. Shareholders with certificated shares are required to exchange
their share certificates for new share certificates representing the
appropriate number of ordinary shares resulting from the reverse split.
Alvarion's transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, is
the exchange agent for the reverse split and will distribute a letter of
transmittal to shareholders with instructions for replacing old share
certificates with new certificates representing the post reverse split number
of ordinary shares.
