PART II — RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)



The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense


The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and


The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.







State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.


Ormat Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) has determined that it is not able to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 (the “Q1 Form 10-Q”) within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense for the reasons described below. The Company’s management has identified an error in the Company’s financial statement presentation of deferred income tax assets and deferred income tax liabilities that affects the Company’s balance sheets in previous reporting periods. Specifically, the Company netted certain deferred income tax assets and deferred income tax liabilities across different tax jurisdictions that are not permitted to be netted pursuant to United States generally accepted accounting principles. The Company is evaluating the impact of this error on its consolidated financial statements and the extent to which the Company’s annual and quarterly consolidated financial statements filed in previous periods require revision or amendment. Further, the Company is in the process of evaluating the control implications of this error as it relates to the material weakness disclosures previously made in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.


The Company expects to file the Q1 Form 10-Q on or before May 15, 2018, the prescribed due date under the five calendar day extension provided under Rule 12b-25(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements


This Form 12b-25 includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this report that address activities, events or developments that the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including such matters as the Company’s projections of annual revenues, expenses and debt service coverage with respect to the Company’s debt securities, future capital expenditures, business strategy, competitive strengths, goals, development or operation of generation assets, market and industry developments, the growth of the Company’s business and operations, the Company’s expectations regarding the filing of the Q1 Form 10-Q and any differences between the results of operations of the Company disclosed in the press release dated May 7, 2018 and those disclosed in the Q1 Form 10-Q, are forward-looking statements. When used in this Form 12b-25, the words “may”, “will”, “could”, “should”, “expects”, “plans”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “estimates”, “predicts”, “projects”, “potential”, or “contemplate” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such words or expressions. These forward-looking statements generally relate to the Company’s plans, objectives and expectations for future operations and are based upon management’s current estimates and projections of future results or trends. Although the Company believes that its plans and objectives reflected in or suggested by these forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company may not achieve these plans or objectives. You should read this Form 12b-25 completely and in conjunction with the cautionary statements contained in the “Risk Factors” section and elsewhere in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 and in the other filings the Company makes with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time, and with the understanding that actual future results and developments may be materially different from what the Company expects due to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company’s control. Other than as required by law, the Company will not update forward-looking statements even though the Company’s situation may change in the future.
