TEL-AVIV, Israel, August 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Ellomay Capital Ltd. (EMYCF) ("Ellomay" or the "Company"), today announced that it has received notification that its ordinary shares have been approved for listing on the NYSE Amex stock exchange and has chosen Knight Capital Americas, L.P. as its designated market maker.

Ellomay's ordinary shares will continue to trade on the OTCQB under its current symbol, "EMYCF," until such date.

"Our listing on the NYSE Amex marks a significant milestone in our corporate strategic plan," said Shlomo Nehama, Chairman of Ellomay.

We believe that this move to the NYSE Amex is in the best interests of our shareholders and expect that it will result in increased visibility with current and potential investors and additional liquidity in the capital markets for our ordinary shares."
