Item 4.
Purpose of Transaction
On January 29, 2020, Gilat announced that it had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated January 29, 2020,  with Comtech Telecommunications Corp., a Delaware corporation (“Comtech”), and Convoy Ltd., a company organized under the laws of the State of Israel and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Comtech (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which Comtech will acquire Gilat by way of the merger of Merger Sub with and into Gilat (the “Merger”), with Gilat surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Comtech.  The Merger is structured as a statutory merger pursuant to Sections 314-327 of the Companies Law, 5759-1999, of the State of Israel.
 
In connection with the Merger Agreement, Comtech entered into a Voting Agreement, dated January 29, 2020 (the “Voting Agreement”), with the FIMI Funds and certain other shareholders of Gilat (the “Shareholders”), pursuant to which each Shareholder has agreed, among other things, to: (i) vote its beneficially owned Gilat Ordinary Shares (a) in favor of the Merger and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including any matter necessary for the consummation of the Merger, (b) in favor of any proposal to adjourn or postpone any meeting of Gilat shareholders at which any of the foregoing matters are submitted for consideration and vote of the Gilat shareholders if there are not sufficient votes for approval of any such matters on the date on which the meeting is held, (c) against any third party acquisition transactions and (d) against any other proposal made in opposition to the adoption of the Merger Agreement or that would reasonably be expected to prevent the consummation of the Merger; and (ii) comply with certain restrictions on the disposition of such shares, in each case subject to the terms and conditions contained therein.  The Voting Agreement will terminate upon the earliest to occur of (A) the consummation of the Merger, (B) the termination of the Merger Agreement pursuant to and in compliance with its terms, (C) a change of recommendation of the Gilat Board that is unanimously approved by the Gilat Board in accordance with the Merger Agreement, or (D) with respect to any Shareholder, the mutual written agreement of Comtech and such Shareholder to terminate the Voting Agreement, or at the option of such Shareholder, upon the entry without the prior written consent of such Shareholder into any amendment or modification of the Merger Agreement which results in a decrease in the Merger Consideration or imposes any material restrictions or material constraints on the payment of the consideration to be paid for the Gilat Shares.
 
The foregoing summaries of each of the Merger Agreement and the Voting Agreement are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Merger Agreement and the Voting Agreement included as Exhibits 1 and 2 hereto and are incorporated herein by reference. The information set forth in Items 5 and 6 is incorporated herein by reference.
