Warburg Pincus Successfully Completes Tender Offer for Ordinary Shares of Cyren Ltd.

(NASDAQ: CYRN) and Commences the Five-Day Additional Offer Period

New York, NY and Tel Aviv, Israel, December 19, 2017 – Warburg Pincus, a global private equity firm focused on growth investing, announced today that all of the conditions have been satisfied for its previously announced tender offer to purchase 31,265,358 ordinary shares of Cyren Ltd. (“Cyren”) with a nominal value of NIS 0.15 per share (“Cyren Shares”) at $2.50 per share, net to the seller in cash, less any required withholding taxes and without interest. WP XII Investments B.V., an entity controlled by funds affiliated with Warburg Pincus (the “Purchaser”), was advised by the depositaries for the offer that, as of 10:00 a.m., New York time, or 5:00 p.m., Israel time, on December 19, 2017: (i) 16,966,276 Cyren Shares were validly tendered, representing approximately 33% of the share capital and voting rights in Cyren (without adjusting for the issuance of Cyren Shares upon the conversion of any convertible notes or the exercise of any outstanding stock options or warrants) (or approximately 30% of Cyren’s Shares on a partially diluted basis (assuming the exercise of “in-the-money” options and conversion of Cyren’s convertible notes)), and (ii) notices of objection to the offer were issued by holders of 134,791 Cyren Shares, representing less than 1% of the share capital and voting rights in Cyren. Warburg Pincus also owns 10,595,521 Cyren Shares purchased from Cyren in the previously disclosed private placement that closed on November 6, 2017, which together with the 16,966,276 Cyren Shares tendered, represents approximately 49% of Cyren’s Shares on a partially diluted basis (assuming the exercise of “in-the-money” options and conversion of Cyren’s convertible notes).

Accordingly, as required by Israeli law and as contemplated in the offer to purchase:

 

    The Purchaser is providing an additional period of five calendar days, until 10:00 a.m., New York time, or 5:00 p.m., Israel time, on Sunday, December 24, 2017, during which Cyren shareholders who, with respect to each Cyren Share owned by them, did not respond to the offer, have notified the Purchaser of their objection to the offer, or have tendered such Cyren Shares but withdrawn their tender prior to 10:00 a.m., New York time, or 5:00 p.m., Israel time, on December 19, 2017, may tender such Cyren Shares. Shareholders who have tendered their shares do not have withdrawal rights during this additional five-calendar day period; and

 

    The Purchaser will purchase, subject to proration, the Cyren Shares validly tendered in the offer prior to 10:00 a.m., New York time, or 5:00 p.m., Israel time, on Sunday, December 24, 2017, the final expiration date of the offer.

Shareholders who hold their Cyren Shares through brokers or other nominees and wish to tender their shares prior to the final expiration date should consider contacting such brokers to ensure their tender instructions are forwarded in ample time to permit such brokers to submit a tender on their behalf in a timely fashion.

Under Israeli law, for a period of one year following the consummation of the tender offer, Warburg Pincus may not effect another tender offer with respect to the Cyren Shares or a merger with Cyren.

On December 18, 2017, the last trading day before this announcement, the closing sale price of the Cyren Shares was $2.40 on Nasdaq and NIS 8.554 ($2.44 based on an exchange rate of NIS 3.5033 per United States dollar as of December 18, 2017) on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

The complete terms and conditions of the tender offer, including important U.S. and Israeli income and withholding tax considerations relating to the tender offer, are contained in the offer to purchase (as amended) previously filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and with the Israeli Securities Authority (“ISA”). American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC is the U.S. Depositary for the offer and Israel Brokerage & Investments I.B.I Ltd. is the Israeli Depositary for the offer.
