TEL-AVIV, Israel, July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —
Metalink Ltd. (OTCQB: MTLK), today announced that its Board of Directors has determined to halt, and not pursue at this stage, its previously announced plan to voluntary liquidate the Company (and distribute all of its net cash to shareholders on a pro rata basis).
Following careful consideration of the matter in light of, among other things, the previously disclosed objection to the plan by one of its principal shareholders coupled with the need to approve the liquidation by shareholders holding at least 75% of all shares voted on the matter, the Board of Directors has determined, in consultation with its legal advisors, to halt the plan at this stage and, at the same time, continue to explore other strategic alternatives aimed at enhancing value to shareholders.
Metalink shares are quoted on OTCQB under the symbol “MTLK”. For more information, please see our public filings at the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov .
