Separately, the Company announced today that its Board of Directors declared a regular annual cash dividend of $0.3776 per share payable on December 21, 2016 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 8, 2016.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2016 Summary

Sales for the third quarter of 2016 decreased by 7.6% to NIS 70.6 million (US$ 18.8 million) from NIS 76.4 million (US$ 20.3 million) recorded in the third quarter of 2015. Sales decreased in the third quarter of 2016 due to: (i) loss of revenue on account of discontinued sales of private label products with one of our main customers, which had a one-time effect in the third quarter of 2015; (ii) the impact of shortage of inventories in third quarter 2016 due to, the Israeli Ministry of Health strike in July-August 2016 which significantly delayed the release from customs of our products, and (iii) overal market decline in food product consumption by the Israeli consumer.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2016 decreased by 4.7% to NIS 19.0 million (US$ 5.1 million) compared to NIS 19.9 million (US$ 5.3 million) recorded in the third quarter of 2015. Third quarter gross margin was 26.9% compared to gross margin of 26.1% for the same period in 2015. The increase in gross margin was the result of the Company's strategic focus on selling a favorable mix of products which generate a higher gross margin in addition to successful negotiations with its suppliers for improved commercial terms.

The Company experienced a decrease in operating income despite a 32.4% decrease in general and administrative expenses compared to the same period in 2015, primarily due to an increase in selling expenses of 33%  due to promotional expenses that included a NIS 2.5 million (US$ 0.7 million) expense related to a nationwide campaign launched in the second and third quarter of 2016 aimed at broadening awareness of Willi-Food's brands and products. Administrative expenses decreased by 32.4% from the third quarter of 2015 to NIS 3.7 million (US$ 1 million) compared to NIS 5.4 million (US$ 1.4 million) mainly due to (i) a significant decrease in the cost of the management salaries of Mr. Zwi Williger, the Company's former Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors and President, and Mr. Joseph Williger, a former director and President of the Company, which totaled NIS 1.2 million (US$ 0.3 million).

Note regarding the stipulation dismissing the securities class action lawsuit

As reported in the Company's annual report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC on April 28, 2016, on February 29, 2016, the Company was served with a lawsuit and a motion to certify it is a class action (securities class action) which was filed in the U.S. in the Federal District Court for the Southern District of New York by a shareholder who claimed to own shares of the Company (the “Plaintiff”), against the Company, Mr. Gurtovoy, the Company's (ultimate direct) controlling shareholder, and some of the past and present officers  (hereinafter, jointly: the “Defendants”). The lawsuit was a demand for compensation for alleged damages incurred by the Plaintiff due to an alleged violation of Federal securities laws and other laws by the Defendants during the period from April 30, 2014 and until February 18, 2016.

On September 23, the lead Plaintiff signed a request to file a stipulation dismissing the lawsuit without any cost for the Company. The request was approved by the court.

Note regarding the share purchase program announced by Willi-Food Investments

The Company previously announced that its controlling shareholder, Willi-Food Investments Ltd. (the “Parent Company”), had reported that its board of directors had authorized the purchase of up to US$ 5 million of the Company's Ordinary Shares, and that the price per Ordinary Share of the Company to be acquired by the Parent Company would not exceed the Company's shareholders' equity per Ordinary Share. The Parent Company informed the Company that the timing and amount of the share purchases will be determined by management of the Parent Company based on its evaluation of market conditions, the trading price of the Company's shares and other factors.  The share purchase program may be increased, suspended or discontinued at any time.

Note regarding term of exclusive distribution arrangement with Arla foods

As previously announced by the Company on September 10, 2016 and September 13, 2016, Goldfrost announced the extension of its Exclusive Distribution Agreement with the Danish producer of dairy products, Arla Foods amba (“Arla”), for a term of fifteen months commencing from the expiration in September 2016 of the current distribution agreement between the parties.

Under the original agreement, Arla had the right to terminate the agreement on 18 months' notice if Gold Frost failed to satisfy the minimum purchase requirements, or on 30 days' notice under certain circumstances, including but not limited to in the case of the death or permanent incapacity of Zwi Williger, the previous Chairman of the board of the Company or his ceasing to be involved in Gold Frost's business.

Under the the extension, Arla granted Goldfrost an exclusive non-transferable right to import, export, market and distribute in Israel cheese and butter products manufactured by Arla. Goldfrost's exclusivity is subject to its purchase of certain minimum quotas of Arla products. In addition, Arla has the right to terminate the Agreement under certain circumstances, including in the case of the death or permanent incapacity of Mr. Iram Graiver or his ceasing to be involved in Goldfrost's business.

Note regarding Israeli Securities Authority Investigation

As previously announced, on February 17, 2016, a search was conducted in the offices of the Company, the Parent Company, BSD Crown Ltd., and B.G.I Investments Ltd. (collectively, the “Group”), by the Israeli Securities Authority (the “ISA”), during which various documents and computers were taken from the Group's offices. A number of executives in the Group were investigated by the ISA, and Mr. Gregory Gurtovoy, member of the Company's board of directors and the indirect controlling shareholder, was detained for interrogation by the ISA for three days, after which, he was placed under house arrest for a period of two weeks (which has since ended), on the suspicion of the crimes of fraudulent acquisitions under aggravating circumstances, falsifying corporate documents, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty in a corporation, money laundering, as well as misleading reporting.

To Company management's knowledge, the investigation by the ISA relates to an investment of approximately US$ 2.25 million (the “Investment”) made during January 2016  in the form of bonds of a European company, which allegedly served as a collateral to a loan obtained by the controlling shareholder or another individual, and which was unrelated to the Company's operations.
 
The Investment was carried out by B.H.W.F.I Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“BHWFI”), pursuant to subscription forms to purchase 300 bonds with a nominal value of US$ 10,000 each (“Subscription Forms”). The Bonds bear an annual interest rate of 6%, payable semi-annually on September 30 and December 31 of each year as of the issue date until the final maturity date of 31 December 2018. The issuer has the right to repay the Bonds with prior notice of 30 days without penalty.

On May 18, 2016, following a request by BHWFI to the issuer, the issuer confirmed (including by way of the provision of extracts from the local state Land Registry and Registrar of Companies) that the issuer fully owns a special purpose vehicle which holds full title to the primary asset of the bonds, and that the investment funds were received by the issuer and registered in favor of BHWFI (the “Response”).

In this regard it should be noted that in response to a query from BHWFI, the issuer clarified that it has no information in its possession relating to a pledge or undertaking given in connection with the bonds, and information concerning a pledge or undertaking with regards to the bonds is not the type of information that the issuer would typically possess. To the Company’s best knowledge and based on documents in its possession and inquiries it made, including requests to all officers and authorized signatories of BHWFI, no pledge and/or undertaking was given in connection with the bonds, and in any case there is no validity to any obligation, if any, without the requisite corporate authority. Additionally on May 25, 2016, BHWFI received confirmation from Bank Leumi Le-Israel Ltd., the holder of BHWFI’s bank account (the “Account”), that there are no pledges on the account holding the bonds.

In addition, in the Response, the issuer alleged that BHWFI supposedly undertook to invest in the bonds in three installments for a total amount US$5 million and that a balance of US$ 2.75 million for the bonds had not yet been paid (the “Demand” or “Alleged Undertaking”). The issuer provided certain documentation, allegedly proving the Alleged Undertaking, but BHWFI has claims regarding the reliability of such documentation. BHWFI has requested several times, through a local law firm (in the Czech Republic), to receive adequate legal documentation for the Alleged Undertaking but no adequate legal documentation  or other reference for the Alleged Undertaking has been provided

To the Company’s best knowledge, based on documents in its possession and inquiries it made, subject to certain restrictions imposed by the ISA, including requests to all of the officers and authorized signatories of BHWFI, the Company did not grant issuer any undertaking to purchase additional bonds beyond the undertaken amount in accordance with the Subscription Forms, namely 300 bonds with a nominal value of US$ 10,000 each, and in any event, the Company believes, based on the opinion of its legal counsel in Israel, that there is no validity to any obligation, if any, made without the requisite corporate authority.

On June 30, 2016, the issuer paid the first interest on account of the bond actually purchased by BHFWI in accordance with the terms thereof.

As of the date of the balance sheet date, the investments in the bonds are presented at nominal cost in US dollars, net.
