The proposal included a request from Delek shareholders to appear before the Shufersal board of directors and express their position.

Delek Israel shareholders have good and convincing explanations against each of Shufersal’s reasons for rejection, and we are confident that if you allow Delek Israel shareholders’ representatives to appear before the Shufersal committee and / or board of directors, their opinion will change, so that they see the many benefits inherent in Shufersal and owners. Its shares in the merger deal. ” This is what Salzman claims and asks the Shufersal board to reconsider the decision to reject the proposal. Delek Israel states that it has no objection to the approval of the merger being subject to a decision of a general meeting of Shufersal shareholders.
