HOLON, Israel, June 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sapiens International Corporation (NASDAQ: SPNS) (TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry with a growing presence in the financial services sector, announced today that it is pursuing a public offering in Israel of additional Series B non-convertible debentures.
Sapiens reported today to the Israel Securities Authority ("ISA") and the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange ("TASE") that the Company is pursuing a public offering in Israel of additional Series B non-convertible debentures of the same series issued by Sapiens in 2017 for an aggregate amount of up to $60 million (the "Debentures") pursuant to a shelf prospectus filed by Sapiens in September 2017. The Debentures will mimic the terms of the currently outstanding debentures, issued in Israel in September 2017. If offered, the Debentures will be denominated in NIS linked to the U.S. dollar.
Roni Al-Dor, President and CEO of Sapiens, said: "The funds to be raised through the issuance of the additional debentures will improve our financial flexibility and strengthen our balance sheet during these challenging times, when the effects of the COV-19 epidemic remain unclear. These funds will be used to replace a short term bank loan with long term debentures and provide additional capital to support our development needs, and will allow us to pursue potential M&A opportunities".
Further, Standard & Poor's Global Ratings Maalot Ltd. ("Maalot"), has published on June 1, 2020 a rating report regarding the Company. In its report, Maalot reaffirmed the Company's ilA+ stable rating to support the potential offering of the Debentures.
