MTI Wireless Edge Ltd
("MTI" or the "Company")
Share Repurchase Programme
MTI Wireless Edge Ltd. (AIM: MWE), the technology group focused on comprehensive communication and radio frequency solutions across multiple sectors, is pleased to announce that it will commence a programme to conduct market purchases of ordinary shares of par value 0.01 Israeli Shekels each ("Ordinary Shares") in the Company up to a maximum value of £150,000 (the "Programme"). The Programme will be managed by Peterhouse Capital Limited ("Peterhouse Capital").
The Company has entered into an arrangement with Peterhouse Capital in relation to the Programme where Peterhouse Capital will make the trading decisions concerning the timing of the market purchases of Ordinary Shares independently of and uninfluenced by the Company, with such trading decisions being in line with the terms of the Programme. Purchases may continue during any prohibited periods of the Company, as defined by the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014/EU ("MAR"), which may fall during the term of the Programme. The Company reserves the right to bring a halt to the programme under circumstances that it deems to be appropriate, provided that it is permissible for this to occur in compliance with MAR.
The Programme will commence on 28 January 2019 and will continue until no later than 26 July 2019.
Any market purchases will be conducted in compliance with the following restrictions regarding price conditions:
The maximum price (exclusive of expense) at which any Ordinary Share may be purchased is the price equal to 105 per cent of the average of the middle market quotations of an Ordinary Share as derived from the London Stock Exchange Daily Official List for the five business days preceding the date of such purchase, and the minimum price at which any share may be purchased shall be 0.21p (being the Sterling equivalent of the par value of an Ordinary Share).
The Company intends to acquire Ordinary Shares under the Programme through its wholly owned subsidiary, MTI Engineering Ltd. ("MTI Engineering"). Ordinary Shares acquired as a result of the Programme will be held by MTI Engineering and in accordance with the Israeli Companies Law, 1999 will not have any voting rights. An objective of the Programme is that Ordinary Shares acquired by MTI Engineering will be resold, provided that this occurs under circumstances that the Board of MTI deems to be appropriate and in compliance with MAR. Cash generated from any eventual resales of Ordinary Shares acquired by MTI Engineering under the Programme will be credited to an account held with a third party, which will be under the direction of Peterhouse Capital and such cash may be used by Peterhouse Capital to make future purchases of Ordinary Shares under the Programme.
The Programme does not comply with the safe harbour requirements set out under Article 5 of MAR and, accordingly, the Company will not benefit from the exemption contained in this Article. Furthermore, due to the limited liquidity in the Ordinary Shares, any market purchase of Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Programme on any trading day could represent a significant proportion of the daily trading volume in the Ordinary Shares on AIM and could exceed 25 per cent. of the average daily trading volume, being the limit laid down in Article 5(1) of MAR.
The Company will announce any market purchase of Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Programme without delay.
The Company confirms that it currently has no unpublished Inside Information, other than what has been disclosed above.
