INFORMATION TO BE INCLUDED IN THE REPORT
On October 23, 2007, Ormat Technologies, Inc. (the Company) entered into an amended and restated underwriting agreement with Lehman Brothers Inc. (the Underwriter) relating to the sale to the Underwriter of 3,000,000 shares of the Companys common stock, par value $0.001 per share. The Underwriter intends to resell the shares of common stock in a public offering. The Underwriter has agreed to purchase the shares from the Company pursuant to the amended and restated underwriting agreement at a price of $45.90 per share. The net proceeds to the Company after deducting the underwriting discounts and commissions, and the Companys estimated expenses, will be approximately $137.4 million.
The shares are being offered and sold to the public under a prospectus supplement and related prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Companys shelf registration statement on Form S3 (File No. 333131064). The offering is expected to close on October 26, 2007, subject to customary closing conditions.
The foregoing description of the amended and restated underwriting agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the amended and restated underwriting agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 1.1 and incorporated by reference herein.
On October 22, 2007, the Company entered into a subscription agreement relating to an unregistered sale of 1,105,004 shares of the Companys common stock, par value $0.001 per share, to its parent company, Ormat Industries Ltd., at $45.90 per share. The proceeds from the unregistered sale will be approximately $50.7 million.
The unregistered sale will comply with the requirements of Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act). We intend to sell the shares of common stock to Ormat Industries Ltd. (which is not a U.S. Person within the meaning of Regulation S) in an offshore transaction, and no selling efforts will be made in the U.S. The unregistered sale is expected to close concurrently with the registered offering discussed elsewhere in this report, subject to certain customary closing conditions. The shares of common stock issued in the unregistered sale will not be registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.
The foregoing description of the subscription agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the subscription agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and incorporated by reference herein.
On October 23, 2007, the Company issued a press release announcing the public offering of 3,000,000 shares of the Companys common stock, par value $0.001 per share.
