RENO, Nevada - With reference to reports appearing in the international media Ormat Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:ORA) clarified that, as part of a previously-announced ongoing strategic planning review, it continues to explore, with the assistance of an investment bank recently engaged for this matter, a possible transaction, whereby the Company might sell a minority stake of up to 49% in a small number of its power plants located in the U.S. to one or more institutional investors, with the Company continuing to consolidate and operate such plants.

 The process is still in an early stage and no binding investment offers have been received. As such, there can be no assurance as to whether this process will lead to any such investments, the timing thereof and, if consummated, what the terms would be, including the terms of any securities that might be issued or valuation of the plants.

 The Company does not intend to make any further comment, or respond to any inquiries, until a binding agreement, if any, is reached with respect to such transaction.
