Shefa Yamim (A.T.M.) Ltd

11 April 2019


11 April 2019

Shefa Yamim (A.T.M.) Ltd.

("Shefa Yamim" or the "Company")

Proposed Change of Company Name, Appointment of Chairman, Subdivision of Shares

Notification of Annual General Meeting

Shefa Yamim (LSE: SEFA), a precious stone exploration and prospecting company in Northern Israel, announces the Board of Directors' intention to change the English name of the Company to Shefa Gems Ltd.

Proposed Change of Company Name and Notification of Annual General Meeting

The proposed change is a reflection of the Company's "Mine to Market" strategy. By renaming itself as Shefa Gems, it will enable the Company to build a global brand by leveraging the positive brand-value associated with the rare gemstones amongst the suite of precious stones found in the Kishon Mid-Reach area.

A special resolution to approve the name change will be proposed at the Group's Annual General Meeting, which will be held on 23 May 2019. The Company's ticker on the London Stock Exchange will remain SEFA. Should shareholder approval be granted for the name change then the Company will issue new share certificates under Shefa Gems Ltd.

Appointment of Chairman

The Company is also pleased to announce that, in accordance with its commitment to high corporate governance standards, it is separating the roles of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Mr Michael Rosenberg, OBE who is based in London and is currently an External Director and independent Non-Executive Director of Shefa Yamim, has been appointed as Chairman of the Company effective from 1 May 2019. Mr Avi Taub will continue in his role as Chief Executive Officer.

Subdivision of Shares and Total Voting Rights

The Company has been seeking to address the lack of liquidity in the shares of Shefa Yamim and following recommendations from its advisors, the Board of Directors have resolved to a subdivision ("share split") of Shefa Yamim (A.T.M.) shares traded on the Standard List of the London Stock Exchange. The Company will be conducting a 10 for one share split.

The Board of Directors of the Company confirm that the 14,236,426 ordinary shares of 1 NIS in issue as at 09 April 2019 ("Existing Ordinary Shares") will be sub-divided into 142,364,260 New Ordinary Shares of 10 Agorats ("New Ordinary Shares") each. 1 NIS is equal to 100 Agorats

Shareholders should multiple their Existing Ordinary Shares by ten to get their number of New Ordinary Shares.

The Existing Ordinary Shares of one shekel each are expected to be cancelled on 16th April and the New Ordinary Shares are expected to commence trading on 17th April 2019. The new share certificates are expected to be dispatched by 1 May 2019.

Following the share split, in conformity with Disclosure and Transparency Rule 5.6.1.R the Company's capital will consist of 142,364,260 New Ordinary Shares with voting rights. Shefa Yamim holds no New Ordinary Shares in Treasury.

The above figure, 142,364,260, may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Shefa Yamim (A.T.M.), under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Avi Taub, CEO of Shefa Yamim, said: "The past 15 months has seen excellent progress made by Shefa Yamim which has seen the Company reach several key milestones including advancing exploration in our primary target, the Kishon Mid-Reach. 2019 is set to be a transformational year and in this regard, we are delighted that our UK-based independent non-executive director, Michael Rosenberg, OBE, has agreed to be the Chairman of the Company. His experience of the London markets will be invaluable as we navigate through this period of major change.

"We are focused on taking the Company forward towards trial mining in the Kishon Mid-Reach Zone 1 area as well as developing our "Mine to Market" strategy. The name change is a vital part of this strategy which will enable us to build a global brand and forge a distinctive identity for the Company and its unique gemstones. We look forward to this next phase in our development and address the significant opportunity in front of us."
