Xfone Announces Rights Offering

2011-07-07

Xfone, Inc. (NYSE Amex and TASE: XFN) (“Xfone” or “the Company”) announces that its Board of Directors has approved a direct rights offering (the “Rights Offering”) in which Company stockholders will receive non-transferable and non-tradable rights to purchase one (1) additional share of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 for each share owned as of the record date, for a subscription price of $0.30 per share (each, a “Right”). The Company will set the record date in accordance with NYSE Amex LLC guidelines and in conjunction with the date of effectiveness of the registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, relating to the Rights Offering (the “Registration Statement”) that the Company will file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Company estimates that it will raise approximately $5 million in the Rights Offering.

Xfone stockholders who exercise their Rights in full may also exercise an over-subscription privilege to purchase, on a pro rata basis, a portion of the unsubscribed shares, at the same price of $0.30 per share, subject to certain limitations. Each subscribing stockholder will also have a “step-up privilege” allowing such stockholder to subscribe for one (1) additional share of common stock in lieu of any fractional share that would have been granted in the Rights Offering.

In conjunction with the Rights Offering, the Company will amend and/or adjust the terms of current warrants and options and/or issue additional warrants and options to provide the holders of such warrants and options with equal fair value after the Rights Offering as they had prior to the Rights Offering.

The Rights Offering is expected to commence after the Registration Statement has been filed and declared effective by the SEC. The offering period is expected to be set at no less than 14 days and no more than 30 days, subject to extension.

Due to the “dual listing” of the Company's shares of common stock on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange Ltd. (the “TASE”), the Rights Offering is subject, among others, to the approval of the Israel Securities Authority and the TASE.

There can be no assurance that the Rights Offering will be successful. The Company reserves the right to change the terms of the Rights Offering (including the Subscription Price) or abandon the Rights Offering at any time prior to its consummation.

Guy Nissenson, President and CEO of Xfone stated, “As part of the federal stimulus package, Xfone was selected to receive approximately $100 million in grants and low cost loans to build out its transformative Pride Network projects. This funding must exclusively be used for capital expenditure to build the network and cannot be applied to operating expenses such as sales and marketing or other working capital needs. In order to drive enhanced returns to our shareholders over the long term, we must have adequate working capital to support our operating expenses so we can maximize market penetration once the towns are built out, similar to what we are doing in Levelland.”

Mr. Nissenson continued, “We have evaluated various options to alleviate the Company’s current working capital deficit, including another bond offering in Israel which is not feasible at the moment, in part due to the softening of the bond market in that country. At this juncture, we believe that a rights offering is the best course of action for existing shareholders, providing them with the opportunity to maintain their percentage ownership of the Company and participate in our expected future success.”

A registration statement relating to the foregoing securities has not yet been filed with or declared effective by the SEC. The securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time a registration statement becomes effective. This announcement shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy the rights or the underlying shares, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
