In connection therewith, the Company has agreed to extend the date by which BNN shall be required to launch a tender offer to purchase up to approximately 20% of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock at a price per share of $1.65 (the “Offer”) until February 6, 2019.

At the time the Offer is commenced, BNN will file a tender offer statement on Schedule TO with the SEC, and the Company will file a solicitation/recommendation statement on Schedule 14D-9 with respect to the Offer. Once filed, investors will be able to obtain the tender offer statement on Schedule TO, the offer to purchase, the Company’s Solicitation/Recommendation Statement on Schedule 14D-9 and related materials with respect to the Offer and the transactions contemplated thereby free of charge at the website of the SEC at www.sec.gov, and from the information agent named in the Offer materials.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This current report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are based on current expectations that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including statements about the planned completion of the Offer and the transactions contemplated by the Acquisition Agreement. Where, in any forward-looking statement, an expectation or belief as to future results or events is expressed, such expectation or belief is based on the current plans and expectations of management and expressed in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis, but there can be no assurance that the expectation or belief will be achieved or accomplished. Numerous risks, uncertainties and other factors may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statement, many of which are outside of the control of management. These factors include, but are not limited to: (i) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Acquisition Agreement; (ii) successful completion of the proposed transactions on a timely basis; (iii) uncertainties as to how many of the holders of shares of MICT’s common stock will tender their shares into the Offer; (iv) the impact of regulatory reviews on the proposed transaction; (v) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against any announcement of the Acquisition Agreement following the announcement of the same; (vi) risks that the proposed transactions disrupt current plans and operations; and (vii) other factors described in the Company’s filings with the SEC, including the reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q, and 8-K. Except to the extent required by applicable law, neither the Company nor any of the parties to the Acquisition Agreement undertakes any obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future results or otherwise.
