Directorate change, electronic communication and notice of AGM and EGM

Directorate change

The Board of MTI (AIM: MWE) is pleased to announce the conditional appointments of Mrs. Lihi Elimelech-Bechor, Adv. as an external non-executive director. Pursuant to the provisions of the Israeli Companies Law, Mrs. Hanna Lerman can no longer act as an external non-executive director due to the fact that her third three year term will be ending on March 16, 2015 and, therefore, the Company is required to nominate an external (independent) director to replace Mrs. Lerman for an initial term of three years at an EGM and the Company wishes to nominate Mrs. Elimelech-Bechor as such. 

This appointment is conditional upon the consent of the shareholders at the Company's forthcoming AGM and EGM on 29 April 2015 and, if approved, the appointment will become effective as of the close of the AGM and EGM.

Mrs. Elimelech-Bechor, Adv. is a senior legal professional with many years of experience, specialising in intellectual property including copyrights, patents, designs and trademarks and managing the IP portfolio of various companies. Prior to specialising in intellectual property, Mrs. Elimelech-Bechor, Adv. served as Director of Marketing & Production for the largest automobile exhibition in Israel. Mrs. Elimelech-Bechor, Adv. currently serves as an external director of (i) Malibu Investments Inc. (a real estate company listed on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange) with headquarters in Canada and (ii) Inbar Issuing and Finance Ltd. (shares issuing and distribution company).

Dov Feiner, Chief Executive Officer, commented, that: "We are sorry that we have to let Hanna step down and want to thank her for her service and wish her well in the future. We are extremely pleased with the addition of Lihi Elimelech-Bechor to our Board and believe that she will prove to be extremely key to MTI as we continue to expand our commercial activities."


Electronic communication with shareholders

The Company would also like to adopt an electronic communication with its shareholders and, pursuant to the AIM Rules, such must be approved by the shareholders at the general meeting. Electronic communication means that the Company will post its accounts on its website and will no longer post its accounts to the shareholders. However, a notice of such posting to the website will be given to shareholders.
