YEHUD, Israel, Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Magal Security Systems, Ltd.
Publish date:

YEHUD, Israel, Dec. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (MAGS) - Get Report today issued a clarification with respect to its announced cash distribution of  $1.079 per share (approximately $25 million in the aggregate) payable in US$ on December 28, 2020 to shareholders of record on December 17, 2020.  According to NASDAQ, the ex-dividend date for NASDAQ  trading will be December 29, 2020.

Nasdaq Rule 11140(b)(2) provides that if the value of a cash distribution is 25% or greater than the value of the subject security, the ex- dividend date will be the first business day after the payable date. On December 29, 2020, the ex-dividend date, NASDAQ will reset the opening trading price of Magal's ordinary shares to reflect the payment of the cash distribution. While an investor generally needs to own the shares on the payable date to be entitled to the cash distribution, investors should consult with their financial advisors as to their entitlement to the cash distribution. The trading price for Magal's ordinary shares on the ex-dividend date is expected to be  lower than the closing price on December 28, 2020, the last trading date before the ex-dividend date, to reflect the amount of the cash distribution. On and after the ex-dividend date, purchasers of Magal's ordinary shares will have no right to receive the cash distribution with respect to those newly purchased ordinary shares.
