HISTORY

The Company’s legal and commercial name is Lumenis Ltd., and the Company was incorporated in Israel on December 21, 1991 initially under the name E.S.C. – Energy Systems Corporation Ltd. and subsequently, from 1995, under the name ESC Medical Systems Ltd., or ESC. In January 1996, the Company completed an initial public offering of the Company’s ordinary shares in the United States. In 2001, following the Company’s completion of the purchase of Coherent Medical Group, or CMG, the medical division of Coherent, Inc., the Company changed the Company’s name to Lumenis Ltd.

The Company’s ordinary shares were first listed and began trading on The NASDAQ National Market on January 24, 1996 under the ticker symbol “ESCMF.” On September 17, 1999, the Company began trading under the ticker symbol “ESM,” and on September 24, 2001, following approval by the Israel Registrar of Companies of the new name, Lumenis Ltd., the Company began trading under the ticker symbol “LUME.” On February 6, 2004, the Company’s ordinary shares were delisted from the NASDAQ National Market and transferred to the pink sheets. On April 26, 2006, the SEC revoked the registration of the Company’s shares under Section 12 of the Exchange Act, and since that time, the Company’s shares have not been traded on any national securities exchange or quoted on any system.
