JERUSALEM, Israel, Aug. 1, 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 that on July 31, 2017 the Korea Fair Trade Commission approved the previously announced all cash tender offer by Cyclops Holdings, LLC ("Cyclops"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation ("Intel"), to purchase all of the outstanding ordinary shares of Mobileye pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, dated as of March 12, 2017, by and among Intel, Cyclops and Mobileye (the "Purchase Agreement").

Mobileye also announced that Intel and Mobileye have agreed that the tender offer will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 7, 2017, unless the tender offer is extended or earlier terminated, in either case pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Agreement. The tender offer was previously scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 11, 2017. Mobileye shareholders are urged to tender their shares into the tender offer prior to its expiration.

Completion of the tender offer remains subject to additional conditions described in the tender offer statement on Schedule TO filed by Cyclops with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on April 5, 2017 (as amended and supplemented, the "Schedule TO"), including that at least 67 percent of Mobileye's outstanding shares be validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the tender offer (including any extensions). Intel further announced that if all of the conditions to the tender offer are satisfied and the offer expires as now scheduled on August 7, 2017, then Intel anticipates that the closing of the tender offer will occur on August 8, 2017.
