In addition, Mr. Katzman was granted an irrevocable proxy by Erica Ottosson to vote her shares of FUF stock with respect to all matters at FUF shareholder meetings. On January 30, 2013, Mr. Katzman, together with related parties (collectively, the “Katzman Group”) and Mr. Segal, Ms. Ottosson, together with related parties (collectively, the “Segal Group”), entered into a stockholders agreement (the “Stockholders Agreement”), with respect to their outstanding shares in Norstar (see Item 6 below). Accordingly, even though Gazit’s board of directors includes a majority of independent directors, Mr. Katzman may deemed to control Gazit. The public stockholders of Gazit own approximately 49% of the Ordinary Shares.

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

On March 1, 2017, the Reporting Persons acquired the shares of Common Stock of the Issuer described in this Schedule 13D (“Shares”) pursuant to the merger (the “Merger”) of Equity One, Inc., a Maryland corporation (“Equity One”), with and into the Issuer, with the Issuer surviving the Merger, pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of November 14, 2016, by and between the Issuer and Equity One (the “Merger Agreement”).

 

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, each share of Equity One common stock, par value $0.01 per share, held by the Reporting Persons was converted into the right to receive 0.45 shares of the Issuer’s Common Stock.

 

The foregoing description of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Merger Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 2 and incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

The Shares were acquired for investment purposes and for the purposes described below. See Item 3 for a description of the Merger Agreement, pursuant to which the Reporting Persons acquired their Shares.

 

Gazit, MGN-A, First Generation, Silver Maple, MGN, MGN America, MGN USA and Ficus (together, the “Stockholders”) and the Issuer are party to a Governance Agreement (the “Governance Agreement”), dated as of November 14, 2016, pursuant to which, among other things the Issuer is required to nominate Mr. Katzman to the Issuer’s board of directors (the “Board”) and solicit votes for his election for so long as the Stockholders and their affiliates beneficially own more than 7% of the Common Stock outstanding as of immediately after the effective time of the Merger. The Stockholders are subject to customary standstill restrictions during the Standstill Period (as defined in the Governance Agreement) and during this period the Stockholders are required to vote all shares of Common Stock beneficially owned in favor of all director nominees recommended by the Board and against any proposals to remove any of the Issuer’s directors. In addition, pursuant to the Governance Agreement, the Stockholders have certain registration rights. The foregoing description of the Governance Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Governance Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 3 and incorporated herein by reference.

 

The Reporting Persons intend to review their investment in the Issuer on a continuing basis. As a result of the Reporting Persons’ continuous review and evaluation of the business of the Issuer, the Reporting Persons may communicate with members of management, the Board and/or other stockholders or other relevant parties from time to time with respect to operational, strategic, financial or governance matters. The Reporting Persons may seek to sell or otherwise dispose of some or all of the Issuer’s securities (which may include, but is not limited to, transferring some or all of such securities to its affiliates or distributing some or all of such securities to such Reporting Person’s respective stockholders or members) from time to time, and/or may seek to acquire additional securities of the Issuer from time to time, in each case, in open market or private transactions, block sales or otherwise. Any transaction that the Reporting Persons may pursue may be made at any time and from time to time without prior notice and will depend on a variety of factors, including, without limitation, the price and availability of the Issuer’s securities, subsequent developments affecting the Issuer, the Issuer’s business and the Issuer’s prospects, other investment and business opportunities available to the Reporting Persons, general industry and economic conditions, the securities markets in general, tax considerations and other factors deemed relevant by the Reporting Persons.

 

Other than as described in this Schedule 13D, none of the Reporting Persons or, to their best knowledge, any Covered Persons have any current plans or proposals that would be related to or would result in any of the matters described in Items 4(a)-(j) of Schedule 13D; however, as part of its ongoing evaluation of this investment and investment alternatives, the Reporting Persons may consider such matters in the future and, subject to applicable law, may formulate a plan with respect to such matters, and, from time to time, the Reporting Persons may hold discussions with or make formal proposals to management or the Board, other stockholders of the Issuer or other third parties regarding such matters.

Stockholders Agreement

 

On January 30, 2013, the Katzman Group and the Segal Group, entered into the Stockholder Agreement, with respect to their outstanding shares in Norstar. The Stockholders Agreement provided that (i) each member of the Katzman Group will vote, subject to certain conditions, all of its shares and any other voting securities of Norstar over which it has voting control for the election to Norstar’s board of directors of two directors designated by the Segal Group and that (ii) each member of the Segal Group will vote all of its shares and any other voting securities of Norstar over which it has voting control for nominees to the Board of Directors as directed in writing by a representative of the Katzman Group. The Stockholders Agreement also provides that if any member of the Katzman Group or any member of the Segal Group proposes to sell, other than pursuant to an open-market transaction or a de minimis transaction (each involving less than 2% of Norstar’s outstanding stock per calendar quarter), any of its shares of Norstar, each member of the other group shall have “tag-along” rights to require their shares of Norstar’s stock be sold alongside the seller’s shares and for the same terms. Accordingly, even though Gazit’s board of directors includes a majority of independent directors, Mr. Katzman may deemed to control Gazit. The foregoing description of the Stockholders Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Stockholders Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 4 and incorporated herein by reference.

Exhibit 4 

STOCKHOLDERS AGREEMENT

THIS STOCKHOLDERS AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) is made as of January 30, 2013 (the “Effective Date”), by and among (A) Mr. Chaim Katzman, from 3872NE 199ter Aventure FL 33180 (on his behalf and/or on behalf of private entities owned by him and/or any of his immediate family members and/or entities or trusts acting for the benefit of him and/or of any of his immediate family members) (“Katzman”) and First US Financial LLC, a Nevada corporation from with Adv. Alan Marcus, Aventura Title Insurance Corporation, Aventura Corporate Center, 20803 Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 301, Aventura Florida 33180, USA owned by Katzman, Ottoson (as defined below) and Mr. Martin Klein and controlled by Katzman (“FUF”; Katzman and FUF collectively referred to herein as the “Katzman Group”); (B) Mr. Dori Segal, from 85 Hanna Avenue, Suite 400, Toronto ,ON, M6K 3S3, Canada , (on his behalf and/or on behalf of private entities owned by him and/or any of his immediate family members and/or entities or trusts acting for the benefit of him and/or of any of his immediate family members) (“Segal”) and Mrs. Erica Ottoson, from 85 Hanna Avenue, Suite 400, Toronto ,ON, M6K 3S3, Canada, (on her behalf and/or on behalf of private entities owned by her and/or any of her immediate family members and/or entities or trusts acting for the benefit of her and/or of any of her immediate family members) (“Ottoson”; Segal and Ottoson collectively referred to as “Segal Group”). Katzman Group and Segal Group are collectively referred to herein as “Parties” or the “Stockholders” and each individually as a “Party” or as a “Stockholder.” Capitalized terms used herein are defined in Section 6 hereof.

Whereas Katzman Group is the controlling shareholder of Norstar Holdings Inc. a Panamanian corporation, which securities are listed for trading on the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange (“Norstar” or the “Company”); and

Whereas each of Segal and Ottoson are Principal Shareholders (as such term is defined under the Israeli Securities Law 5728-1968) of Norstar; and

Whereas in light of, among other things, recent regulatory changes, including the proposed law to Promote Competition and Reduce Concentration, 2012, with its expected implications on Norstar and the Stockholders, pursuant to its current holdings structure, the Parties hereto wish to enter into a Stockholders Agreement and accept the rights and obligations created pursuant hereto in connection with their holdings in Norstar as of the Effective Date;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties to this Agreement hereby agree as follows:

 

  1. Board of Directors:

 

  (a) The Parties hereto agree that for as long as this agreement shall remain in full force and effect, the Parties shall exercise their voting power in Norstar in a manner that the Board of Directors of the Company shall be comprised of a majority of “Independent Directors” LOGO, as such term is defined in the Israeli Companies Law (the “Independent Directors”), such majority to include the External Directors - “Dachazim” - nominated in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Law which are applicable to Norstar (the “External Directors”). The Parties undertake that the Independent Directors so appointed, other than the External Directors, shall not be Israeli Residents.

 

  
 

  

  (b) Each member of the Katzman Group will vote all of its Stockholder Shares and any other voting securities of Norstar over which it has voting control for the election to Norstar’s board of directors (“Board”) of two directors designated by the Segal Group (the “Segal Group Directors’’), provided that (i) one of such designees shall be an Independent Director, and (ii) for as long as Chaim Katzman is alive and has not been declared “legally incompetent” by any relevant court in the United States, such designee for Independent Director shall be reasonably acceptable to Chaim Katzman and shall have all required qualifications under any applicable law. In the event that Chaim Katzman determines that any such designee is not acceptable to it, Chaim Katzman shall notify Segal Group in writing of such determination, including the basis therefore, and Segal Group shall be entitled to designate a replacement nominee who shall be subject to approval by Chaim Katzman as provided in this Section 1(b).

 

  (c) Each member of the Segal Group will vote all of its Stockholder Shares and any other voting securities of Norstar over which it has voting control for nominees to the Board of Directors as directed in writing by a representative of the Katzman Group, including External Directors (and shall vote against any other nominee to the Board), subject to the provisions of Section 1(a).

 

  (d) At the date hereof, Norstar’s Board of Directors is made up of eight members, of which three members are Independent Directors, and shall be deemed appointed by the Katzman Group. The Segal Group shall be entitled to appoint its Independent Director designee at any time as the ninth Board member, in accordance with the provisions of Norstar’s Articles of Association.

 

  2. Tag-Along Rights.

 

  (a) If any member (in this Section 2, the “Selling Stockholder”) of the Katzman Group or any member of the Segal Group proposes to sell, other than pursuant to an open-market transaction or a de minimis transaction (each involving less than 2% of Norstar’s outstanding stock per calendar quarter), any of its Stockholder Shares, it may only make such sale after complying with the provisions of this Section 22. First, the Selling Stockholder shall give to each member of the other group (the “Offeree”) a notice (an “Offer Notice”) allowing each member of the other group to participate, with respect to a number of Stockholder Shares equal to the Tag-Along Amount (as defined in Section 2(b) below), in such sale by the Selling Stockholder, and for the same per share consideration. The Offer Notice shall specify the following information: (i) the number of shares that the Selling Stockholder proposes to sell or transfer (the “Tag Along Shares”) and the Tag-Along Amount (as defined in section 2(b) below); and (ii) the price that the Selling Stockholder will receive in respect of the Tag Along Shares, which shall be stated in cash, and the requested terms of payment thereof; (iii) the proposed date for sale of the Tag Along Shares; and (iv) the identity of the proposed third party purchaser. The Offerees shall have the right for a period of 10 Days after the Offer Notice is given (the “Acceptance Period”), to accept such offer in whole or in part, exercisable by delivering a written notice (the “Acceptance Notice”) to the Selling Stockholder within the Acceptance Period, stating therein the number of shares of Common Stock to be sold by the Offerees to the proposed transferee, provided however that the number of Common Shares that the Offerees shall be entitled to sell shall not be greater than the Tag Along Amount (as defined in section 2(b) below). Prior to the earlier of (i) the end of the Acceptance Period or (ii) the acceptance or rejection of the Selling Stockholder’s offer, as the case may be, by the Offerees, the Selling Stockholder shall not complete any sale of shares of Common Stock. Notwithstanding the aforesaid provisions, in the event that the Selling Stockholder is a member of the Segal Group, and any member of the Katzman Group decides to exercise the Tag Along Rights granted hereunder, and such member is still subject to the Hapoalim Tag Along Agreement (as defined below in Section 2(b), then the periods of time set forth above shall be deemed amended to accommodate the Hapoalim Tag Along Agreement.

 

 -2- 
 

 

  (b) For purposes of this Section 2, the “Tag-Along Amount” shall mean a number of Stockholder Shares determined (i) on a pro-rata basis based upon the Katzman Group’s and the Segal Group respective relative ownership of Stockholder Shares vis-a-vis one another (the “Tag Along Ratio”), or (ii) in the event that Tarshish – Holdings and Investments Hapoalim Ltd. (“Hapoalim”) decide to exercise the tag along rights granted to them in respect of Norstar’s shares by Katzman and FUF pursuant to that certain agreement dated July 17, 2011 (the “Hapoalim Tag Along Agreement”), then the Tag Along Amount shall be calculated by applying the Tag Along Ratio to the number of Tag Along Shares to be sold by the Katzman Group after deducting there from the number of Stockholder Shares to be sold by Hapoalim after exercising their Tag Along rights.

 

  (c) In the event that an Offeree elects to participate in the sale set forth in the Offer Notice by delivering an Acceptance Notice during the Acceptance Period, then for a period of 120 days following the Acceptance Period the Selling Stockholder may sell its Stockholder Shares for consideration not less than 95% of the consideration stated in the Offer Notice, and on other terms no less favorable to the Selling Stockholder than those set forth in the Offer Notice; provided that the transferee shall simultaneously purchase the number of shares of Common Stock as calculated above from accepting Offerees, as the case may be. In the event that the Offerees do not elect to participate in the sale set forth in the Offer Notice, then for a period of 120 days following the Acceptance Period, the Selling Stockholder may sell the Stockholder Shares it proposed to sell in the Offer Notice, to the third party purchaser specified in the Offer Notice, for consideration not more than 105% of the consideration stated, and on other terms no more favorable to the Selling Stockholder than those set forth in the Offer Notice.

 

  (d) A proposed change in control of a member of Katzman Group that holds Stockholder Shares, following which Mr. Chaim Katzman and/or his immediate family members will not control such group member nor be the exclusive beneficiary of such group member, will be considered a sale of such Stockholder Shares (a “Deemed Katzman Sale”) that is subject to this Section 2. If such group member has assets and/or liabilities in addition to Stockholder Shares (such that the sale price of the interests in such group member may not be determinative of the sale price of the Stockholder Shares held by such group member), then the per share consideration applicable to the Deemed Katzman Sale for purposes of this Section 2 shall be as mutually agreed by the parties hereto in good faith; provided, that if the parties hereto are unable to agree on such per share consideration within 5 Business Days after the delivery of the Offer Notice, the per share consideration shall be determined by an independent investment bank mutually agreed upon by the parties hereto in good faith and the Acceptance Period shall be extended until 5 Business Days after the per share consideration is determined by such independent investment bank. The provisions of the Section 2(d) shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the Segal Group, and any proposed change in control of a member of Segal Group that holds Stockholder Shares, following which Mr. Dori Segal and/or his immediate family members or Mrs. Erica Ottoson and/or her immediate family members will not control such group member.

 

 -3- 
 

 

  (e) The tag-along rights set forth in this Section 2 shall not apply to any shares of Common Stock pledged or to be pledged by any party hereto as security for a bona fide loan (any such currently or future pledged shares, the “Pledged Shares”) that are foreclosed upon or sold by the lender with respect to such loan, and each Party undertakes to execute and sign any and all documents reasonably required by any such lender in connection therewith.

 

  (f) For the avoidance of doubt, the sale, assignment or transfer of shares by any Party pursuant to the terms of Section 10(a) below shall not be subject to the tag-along rights set forth in this Section 2.

3. Attribution of Holdings. For purposes of calculating the holdings of Katzman Group and of Segal Group under Section 1 above, the shares of Norstar owned by FUF shall be attributed to the Stockholders pro rata to their respective ownership in FUF, as such ownership may be at the time of attribution, and shall be added to the shares in Norstar owned directly by such Stockholder.

4. Confidentiality. All materials and information obtained by any Stockholder pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise delivered by one Stockholder to any other Stockholder shall be kept confidential and shall not be disclosed to any third party except (a) as has become generally available to the public (other than through disclosure by such Stockholder in contravention of this Agreement), (b) to such Stockholder’s directors, officers, trustees, partners, employees, agents and professional consultants on a need to know basis, , (c) to any person or entity to which such Stockholder offers to sell or transfer any shares of Common Stock, provided, that the prospective transferee shall agree to be bound by the provisions of this Section 4, (d) in any report, statement, testimony or other submission to any governmental authority having or claiming to have jurisdiction over such Stockholder, or (f) in order to comply with any law, rule, regulation or order applicable to such Stockholder, or in response to any legal process or formal or informal investigative demand issued to such Stockholder in the course of any litigation, investigation or administrative proceeding.

5. Conflicting Agreements. No Stockholder shall act, for any reason, as a member of a group or in concert or enter into any agreement or arrangement with any other person in connection with the acquisition, disposition or voting of Stockholder Shares in any manner which is inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement.
