First Israel Mezzanine Investors Ltd. Key Developments

Five Companies To Bid For IMI

Five groups are bidding to acquire Israel Military Industries Ltd. whose price has been estimated at ILS 2-2.5 billion. The bidders are Elbit Systems Ltd. (TASE:ESLT); a group jointly controlled by businessmen Samy Katsav and Meir Shamir; Flextronics International Ltd. (NasdaqGS:FLEX); The Renco Group, Inc.; and First Israel Mezzanine Investors Ltd. The companies and groups interested in the acquisition are to submit their price bids next month to the Government Companies Authority, which is conducting the privatization process for IMI. Five companies so far have deposited ILS 6 million guarantee, and when the bids are submitted, a ILS 35 million deposit will be required. The Government Companies Authority summoned representatives of the five participating groups to a seminar in Herzliya. Representatives have already toured the site at Ramat Beka in the Negev to which IMI is slated to transfer its facilities by 2020. The competing groups also recently received comprehensive reviews of IMI's situation from Chairman Maj.-Gen. (res.) Udi Adam and Chief Executive Officer Avi Felder, as well as confidential financial data about IMI revealed to the potential buyers in the information rooms opened three months ago. Two companies that expressed interest in acquiring IMI, but subsequently dropped out, are S.B.M. Consulting Ltd. and Armaz Group. Coleridge Capital Ltd. and Tara Horizon also dropped out at an earlier stage. According to the IDF privatization plan, the Government Companies Authority is expected to decide by the beginning of 2016. The state will retain a small part of IMI's activity defined as strategic and top secret, for which a new government defense company, Tomer Systems, was founded in recent months. A source informed about the IMI privatization plan expressed satisfaction to "Globes" with the pace of progress in the process. He said it was clear that "The five groups that have reached the final hurdle are serious, and are moving ahead with vigor in the process. Their level of interest in IMI is high, and most of the acute questions relating to the sale have already been answered. The discussions are now focusing the technical parts of the process."
