Adira Energy Announces Filing of Public Draft Prospectus with the Israeli Securities Authorities in Advance of Tel Aviv Stock Exchange Listing and Filing of Canadian Preliminary Short Form Prospectus
/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/
TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - ADIRA ENERGY LTD. (TSXV: ADL) (OTCBB: ADENF) (FRANKFURT: AORLB8). Adira Energy Ltd. ("Adira" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the public filing of a draft prospectus ("Prospectus") with the Israeli Securities Authorities ("ISA") in connection with its previously announced application to list the Company's securities on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange ("TASE") (the "Listing").
Gadi Levin, the Company's Chief Financial Officer commented, "The public filing of the Israeli draft prospectus is significant as the Company heads towards the imminent TASE listing. The timing is fortuitous as the interest in local oil companies has peaked in Israel ahead of the upcoming drilling programs in the region, as well as certain international major E+P companies announcing their intention of entering the offshore Cyprus and Israel oil and gas fields."
The Listing is subject to the receipt of all applicable regulatory approvals, including approval of the TASE and the ISA.
Adira further announces that it has also filed a preliminary short form prospectus ("Canadian Prospectus") with the securities regulatory authorities in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta in connection with a fully marketed "best efforts" offering of units (the "Offering") through a syndicate of agents led by M Partners Inc. and including Dundee Securities Ltd. (collectively, the "Agents"). Sunel Securities Inc. is acting as a member of the selling group in connection with the Offering. The Offering may also be made in such other jurisdictions outside of Canada, including the United States and Israel as agreed between the Company and the Agents.
The Offering is subject to the receipt of all regulatory approvals, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the Canadian securities regulators.
Copies of the Canadian Prospectus may be obtained on www.sedar.com under the Company's profile.
The securities referred to in this press release have not been, nor will they be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities.
