ROSH HA'AYIN, Israel, Feb. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alvarion® Ltd. (in receivership and interim liquidation) (OTCQB:ALVRQ) announced today that Mr. Yoav Kfir, the court-appointed Special Manager and Receiver (the "Receiver"), submitted on January 29, 2014 a motion to the District Court of Tel Aviv – Yaffo requesting the Court to approve the proposed creditors' plan of settlement.

Shareholder and Creditor meetings to vote on the proposed plan were held on January 5, 2014 in Tel Aviv.

The Receiver petitioned the Court to dismiss the exceptions submitted by the senior creditors and approve the proposed plan. Alternatively, the Receiver requested the Court that an urgent hearing be scheduled to discuss the proposed plan and provide guidance as to the approval of said plan.

Furthermore, the Receiver petitioned the Court to permanently suspend the liquidation order for Alvarion Ltd., which was temporarily suspended on December 12, 2014 for 45 days, in order to allow the continued listing of the Company on NASDAQ and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

In accordance with the Court's order, the Receiver published notifications in two local newspapers regarding the submission of the motion to approve the proposed creditors' plan of settlement. A copy of the motion submitted to the Court together with all its appendices can be requested by writing to or by fax +972-2-995-5777.
