TowerJazz Announces Successful Completion Of Its Rights Offering

Tower Semiconductor Ltd. (NASDAQ: TSEM; TASE: TSEM), the global specialty foundry leader, announced the completion of its previously announced rights offering to eligible security holders. The company received gross proceeds of $22 million out of maximum possible amount of approximately $24 million offered, representing a 90% participation rate. Israel Corporation Ltd., a major shareholder of the Company, exercised its Rights in full and has further committed to exercise all of its Series 8 warrants on or before July 22, 2013, for an additional investment in TowerJazz of approximately $10 million.

"In the past weeks, we had opportunities to meet with multiple investors and discuss company strategies, tactics and performance. There was an overall understanding, appreciation and belief in the direction the company is taking and of the strong traction within the strategic initiatives that the company has announced over the preceding years. This appreciation and belief is best evidenced, and we are most pleased to announce, that 90% of all available rights were exercised. We appreciate this strong vote of confidence by our stakeholders," said Russell Ellwanger, chief executive officer of the Company. "We will continue to focus on analog technology leadership with strategic steps driving deeper and broader offerings within the industrial mega trends of 1) green everything, 2) wireless everything, and 3) integrated smart systems and hence provide unique value to our customers with strong financial models."

A total of approximately 1.1 million rights were exercised in the rights offering. Each right is exercisable for four ordinary shares, six short-term Series 8 warrants exercisable at $5.00 per share until July 22, 2013 and five Series 9 warrants exercisable at $7.33 per share until June 27, 2017. Both the Series 8 warrants and the Series 9 warrants will be listed for trade on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and its CUSIP numbers are M87915 407 and M87915 415, respectively.
