to elect six directors – the one-year terms of our six current directors who are not outside directors will expire at the meeting, and we are proposing to reelect these six directors;
to elect two outside directors – the three-year terms of two of our outside directors will expire at the meeting, and we are proposing to reelect these two outside directors;
to ratify the appointment and compensation of Kost, Forer, Gabbay & Kasierer, a member of Ernst & Young Global, as our independent registered public accounting firm for 2018 – Israeli law requires that we ask you, on an annual basis, to approve our auditors; when this proposal is raised, you will also be invited to discuss our 2017 consolidated financial statements; and
as required by Israeli law, to approve the compensation for our Chief Executive Officer.
You are entitled to vote at the meeting if you are a shareholder of record at the close of business on July 16, 2018. You are also entitled to vote at the meeting if you hold our ordinary shares through a bank, broker or other nominee that is one of our shareholders of record at the close of business on July 16, 2018, or that appears in the participant listing of a securities depository on such date.

Each ordinary share is entitled to one vote upon each of the proposals to be presented at the meeting. The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power represented and voting on each of the proposals in person or by proxy is required to approve each of the proposals.
In addition, a special majority vote will be required for approval of proposals nos. 2 and 4.
