Unlike previous years, the new formula will not include any losses accumulated by the company for three years prior. 

Shareholders will also be asked to approve changes in remuneration for senior employees who retire.

Upon leaving the company, they will be offered an adjustment grant, which isn’t currently available. Apart from being the CEO, Levy is the controlling owner (40%) of Shivuk Hashikma. 

The number of his family members employed by the company is one of the largest in public Israeli companies.
