Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) — Ormat Technologies Inc., a U.S.
developer of geothermal power, may acquire its Tel Aviv-based
parent company in an all-stock merger.
The arrangement would mean Ormat Industries Ltd. would de-list in Israel, with shareholders receiving stakes in the U.S.-
based company, according to a filing today with the Tel Aviv
Stock Exchange. Ormat Industries has a market value of 3.06
billion shekels ($813 million).
The company is establishing an independent committee to
consider the transaction, Reno, Nevada-based Ormat Technologies
said in a statement today.
