Idan Wallace, President and CEO of Delek Group president and CEO Idan Wallace said, "In recent months we have been working tirelessly to progress significant business moves that will contribute to strengthening the capital and liquidity of the Group. As part of this we have announced, among other things, agreements to divest assets in the amount of NIS 1.5 billion, and at the same time we have formulated a plan to strengthen collateral and capital together with the representatives of the Group's debenture holders and with the lender banks, in order to provide the Company the time to continue to progress major actions that it is working on, and to benefit from the recovery in the global energy markets, signs of which we have been seen in recent weeks. The proposed plan strikes the right balance between the various requirements of the Company, the debenture holders and its secured creditors, and will allow the Group to implement a series of important strategic moves that it is working on."
