Tel Aviv, February 24, 2021 - Management of Phinergy opened trading this morning in celebration of its IPO on TASE.

Aviv Tzidon, Chairman and Founder of Phinergy, said: 'I am extremely proud of Phinergy's IPO on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. What started out as research at the Bar Ilan University has evolved into a company with technology achievements and proven products operating at customer sites. Today we conquer another significant milestone that will allow us to set up a plant in Israel and deploy our products globally. We are delighted to share this achievement with the employees of the company, who are integral to its success and hold equity interest in the company.'

Clean energy is essential to our planet and the growth and development of this sector in Israel promises a greener and healthier world for all of us. We wish the company success and growth, to the benefit of both investors and the Israeli economy'.
