(“BATM” or “the Group”)

Completion of Sale of NGSoft

Further to the Group’s announcement of 1 March 2021, BATM (LSE: BVC; TASE: BVC), a leading provider of real-time technologies for networking solutions and medical laboratory systems, announces the completion of the sale of NG Soft Ltd. (“NGSoft”) to Aztek Technologies (1984) Ltd. following the receipt of approval from the Israel Competition Authority and the transaction becoming unconditional in all respects. BATM has received a total of NIS 93.7m (c. $29m) pursuant to the sale agreement as detailed in the previous announcement.

The Group intends to invest the proceeds of the sale to strengthen its innovation and commercialisation engine, both organically and through acquisition, to enable the Group to accelerate its core activities – in particular, in network function virtualisation (“NFV”) and molecular diagnostics. The Board of BATM believes these areas offer transformational growth opportunities in the short to medium-term. In addition, the disposal of NGSoft, combined with the increased contribution to Group revenue from molecular diagnostics and NFV, will support the anticipated improvement in gross margin for 2021.
