JERUSALEM, June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- (NYSE: MBLY) – Mobileye N.V. ("Mobileye" or the "Company"), the global leader in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and autonomous driving technologies, today announced the results of its 2017 annual general meeting of its shareholders (the "AGM"). During the AGM, held today, the Company obtained shareholder approval for all items proposed for approval at the AGM, including all items relating to the previously disclosed all cash tender offer (the "Offer") by Cyclops Holdings, LLC ("Cyclops"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation ("Intel"), to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the Company, including approval of certain post-Offer closing restructurings as previously announced in the agenda for the AGM, certain amendments to the articles of association of the Company to become effective after the closing of the Offer and the election of new directors associated with Intel effective as of the Offer closing. In addition, a number of other matters were approved at the AGM relating to the adoption of the Company's Dutch statutory annual accounts, the re-election of certain incumbent directors of the Company (who will resign after the Offer closing) and the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers N.V. to serve as the Company's independent public accountants for the current year. All of the above items are described in greater detail in the AGM agenda disclosed previously by the Company and available on the Company's website (http://ir.mobileye.com/investor-relations/AGM/default.aspx). All items proposed were adopted at the AGM with percentages ranging from 96% to 99% of the votes cast in favor of the proposals.
On March 12, 2017, Cyclops commenced the Offer to acquire all outstanding ordinary shares of the Company at a purchase price of $63.54 per share, less any applicable withholding taxes and without interest to the holders thereof, payable in cash. The Offer is being made pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, dated March 12, 2017, by and among Cyclops, Intel and the Company (the "Purchase Agreement"). The Offer is scheduled to expire on June 21, 2017, unless extended pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement. Complete terms and conditions of the Offer are described in the Offer statement on Schedule TO, which includes the Offer to Purchase and related Letter of Transmittal, that was filed by Intel with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on April 5, 2017, as amended (the "Schedule TO").
Obtaining the Company shareholders' approval of certain of the items submitted to a vote at the AGM satisfies a condition to the closing of the Offer.
Completion of the Offer remains subject to certain other conditions, including that at least 95% of the Company's outstanding shares (as such threshold may be lowered pursuant to the Purchase Agreement) be validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer (including any extensions) and the receipt of regulatory approvals in certain jurisdictions as described in the Schedule TO. The Offer will continue to be extended until all conditions are satisfied or waived, or until the Offer is terminated, in either case pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement and as described in the Schedule TO.
