BNN Technology PLC and MICT Announce a Strategic Transaction


On June 21st, 2018, BNN Technology PLC (BNN) acquired a 14.89 percent stake in Micronet Enertec Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQCM: MICT). Following this acquisition, BNN and MICT are pleased to jointly announce the execution of a Letter of Intent to enter into a series of strategic transactions.

Specifically, the Letter of Intent between BNN and MICT outlines the following proposed transactions:

  • BNN will seek to acquire, through a third-party cash tender offer at a price of at least $1.65 (the price per share BNN paid to a MICT shareholder to purchase the 14.89%), an additional approximately 35% stake in MICT, with a view to owning in aggregate at least 50.1% of the company’s issued shares.
  • Both BNN and an unrelated Third Party, a leading Platform as a Service (PaaS) provider of transaction technology, shall be acquired by MICT in exchange for cash and the issuance of shares. The Third-Party acquisition is pursuant to a Heads of Terms, which BNN has previously entered into with the Third Party. The overall combined entity will be cash flow positive.
  • All of the shares of Micronet Tel Aviv currently held by MICT would be spun off to MICT shareholders that remain shareholders of MICT after the tender offer. Micronet Tel Aviv is a publicly traded Tel Aviv company (TASE:MCRNl.TA) owned 49.89% by MICT
  • MICT will raise a minimum of between $26 -$36 million from major global institutional investors.

As a result of the contemplated transactions, MICT, a publicly traded NASDAQ company, would own BNN and the Third Party, and would have a sizable valuation that offers shareholders in each entity an attractive opportunity for the future.

These transactions are subject to diligence by the parties, the negotiation of definitive agreements and approval by the respective BNN and MICT Boards of Directors and MICT’s shareholders. BNN is a UK registered technology, content and services company with a focus on the Chinese market, and MICT is a developer, manufacturer and provider of mobile computing platforms for the mobile logistics management market in the US, Europe and Israel.

Commenting on the proposed transaction, Darren Mercer, Executive Director of BNN Technology PLC, said:
