Under the terms of the transaction, Tefron will receive aggregate consideration of approximately US$13 million, consisting of approximately US$10 million payable in cash and US$3 million pursuant to the terms of an unsecured subordinated promissory note, the principal amount of which will be due August 31, 2009.

The transaction will allow us to better focus our efforts on our core businesses - intimate apparel, active wear and swim wear. The completion of the transaction will also improve our balance sheet by reducing debt and increasing cash."
