Election of Mr. Michael Yehezkel Karo as independent director
Pursuant to the provisions of the Israeli Companies Law, the Company has to nominate an independent director in addition to two external directors. Mr. Amnon Sofrin has now served for nine years (including with MTI Computers and Software Service (1982) Ltd. which merged in 2018 into the Company) and therefore can no longer be regarded as an independent director and has to be replaced. The Company therefore proposes the election of Mr. Michael Yehezkel Karo as the replacement independent director.
Subject to his appointment, Mr. Michael Yehezkel Karo will be entitled to annual remuneration in accordance with the Companies Regulations (Rules concerning Remuneration and Expenses for External Directors), 5760-2000 and the remuneration policy. In addition, he will be entitled to be included in the Company's insurance and indemnity arrangements for officers.
Michael Yehezkel Karo is a highly experienced program manager with a thorough technical background and strong proven leadership. He has worked for over 35 years in RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. performing multiple positions including development, system engineering, integration and program management. Mr. Karo holds an MBA in business administration from Haifa University.
Michael Yehezkel Karo (who previously had the name Michael Yehezkel), age 63, is not currently a director of any company or a partner in any partnership. In the last five years Mr Karo has not served as a director of any companies or been a partner in any partnerships. Mr Karo does not currently hold any ordinary shares in the Company.
The audit committee has reviewed the declaration of Mr. Michael Yehezkel Karo and finds him suitable to serve as an independent director.
