llion (US$ 909.5 million) compared to NIS 1,641.4 million reported last year.

Revenues from commercial centers increased in 2007 to NIS 2,917.6 million (US$ 758.6 million) from NIS 397.2 million last year. This increase is attributable to: (i) an increase in revenues from the sale of trading property in 2007 to NIS 2,820 million (US$ 733.2 million) as compared to NIS 286.6 million last year. This increase is attributable to the sale of 4 commercial centers in 2007 (Arena Plaza in Hungary, and Rybnik Plaza, Sosnowiec Plaza and Lublin Plaza in Poland) as compared to sale of one commercial center in 2006 (Novo Plaza in Czech Republic); and is offset by (ii) a decrease in revenues from the operations of commercial centers to NIS 97.8 million (US$ 25.4 million) in 2007 compared to NIS 110.6 million in 2006. Such decrease is attributable mainly to the sale of the Arena Commercial Center in Israel, and the sale of the Duna Plaza Offices at the end of June, 2007 offset in part by an increase in attractions operations within the commercial centers, and 2 weeks of operation of the Arena Plaza, Hungary commercial center prior to its sale in mid December, 2007.

Cost of commercial centers increased to NIS 1,714.2 million (US$ 445.7 million) compared to NIS 395.8 million reported last year. This increase is attributable mainly to the cost of sale of 4 commercial centers sold during 2007, compared to cost of sale of one commercial center in the previous year, and to the increase in managing and operating expenses following Plaza Centers's increase in scope of business as well as Plaza Centers becoming a public company in October 2006.

Gain from sale of real estate assets and investments, net amounts to NIS 62.6 million (US$ 16.3 million) in 2007, resulting from the sale of the Ballet Institute Building and the Duna Plaza Offices, both in Budapest, as compared to NIS 81.7 attributable mainly to the price adjustments related to sale of assets to the Klepierre Group under the July 2005 (Stage B) transactions, and to the sale of the Sandton Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Revenues from hotels operations and management increased to NIS 395.2 million (US$ 102.8 million) as compared to NIS 351.6 million reported last year. This increase is attributable to a consistent increase in revenues and high occupancy at our hotels in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Holland and Romania.

Costs and expenses from hotels operations and management increased to NIS 330.1 million (US$ 85.8 million) compared to NIS 308.6 million reported last year. This increase is attributable mainly to an increase in the operations of the hotels segment, as mentioned above, offset by the improving efficiency in the control of the segment's expenses.

Revenues from sale of medical systems decreased to NIS 49.6 million (US$ 12.9 million) compared to NIS 85.8 million reported last year. This decrease was mainly due to decrease in number of systems sold compared with last year.

Costs and expenses of medical systems operation decreased to NIS 69.9 million (US$ 18.2 million) compared to NIS 71.7 million reported last year.

Revenues from sale of fashion merchandise is attributed to the operations of Elbit Trade & Retail Ltd. (previously "Mango") which increased to NIS 68.1 million in 2007 (US $17.7 million) compared to NIS 58 million reported last year. This increase is attributed mainly to the opening of 7 new stores by Elbit Trade & Retail Ltd. during 2007

Cost and expenses of fashion merchandise increased to NIS 80.3 million (US$ 20.8 million) compared to NIS 67.8 million reported last year. This increase was attributable mainly to increase in retail operations of Elbit Trade & Retail Ltd. as mentioned above

Gain from decrease in shareholding of invstees was NIS 5.3 million (US$ 1.3 million) as compared to NIS 667.0 million reported last year. The gain in 2007 is attributable to a gain consequent upon a decrease in the Company's shareholding in InSightec as a result of the issuance of Preferred A Shares by InSightec in November 2007. The gain in 2006 is attributable to a gain resulting from a decrease in shareholding of the Company in Plaza Centers in the amount of NIS 667.0 million following the Initial Public Offering of Plaza Center's ordinary shares on the Official List of the London Stock Exchange in late October 2006.

Research and development expenses decreased to NIS 69.5 million (US$ 18.1 million) compared to NIS 73.5 million reported last year. These costs are attributable to the operations of InSightec.

General and administrative expenses increased to NIS 117.0 million (US$ 30.4 million) compared to NIS 67 million reported last year. The increase in general and administrative expenses is attributable to: (i) share-based payments expenses and bonuses in respect of employees and directors which amounted to approximately to NIS 70 million (US$ 18.2 million) in 2007, as compared to approximately NIS 26.1 million in 2006; (ii) bonus payment to the Company's Chairman of the Board in respect of the profit generated by the Company in 2006, which was approved by the Company's shareholders at general meeting in November 2007, and accordingly was recorded in the general and administrative expenses of 2007.

Financial expenses, net increased to NIS 140.9 million (US$ 36.6 million) -- compared to NIS 118.6 million reported last year -- attributable mainly to an increase in the scope of notes raised by the Company and Plaza Centers during 2007 on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange in Israel.

Other expenses decreased to NIS 38.2 million (US$ 9.9 million), compared to NIS 77.0 million reported last year. The other expenses in 2007 include mainly impairments and loss from disposition of real estate assets and investments, and initiation expenses related to the Company's operations in India, offset by a profit from the collection of debt.

Profit before taxes in 2007 was NIS 925.6 million (US$ 240.7 million) as compared to NIS 462.0 million in 2006.

Income tax in 2007 was NIS 16.3 million (US$ 4.2 million) as compared to tax benefits in the amount of NIS 1.8 million last year.

Profit from continuing operations in 2007, was NIS 909.3 million (US$ 236.4 million) compared to NIS 463.8 million reported last year.

Profit from discontinuing operations, net in 2007 was NIS 10.3 million (US$ 2.7 million) compared to NIS 35.7 million reported last year. Such profit is attributable mainly to the cancellation of provisions accrued in connection with discontinued operations, collection of bad debts and revenues from royalties on patents.

Net income in 2007 was NIS 919.6 million (US $239.1 million) of which NIS 539.7 million (US$ 140.3 million) is attributable to the equity holders of the Company and NIS 379.9 million (US$ 98.8 million) is attributable to minority interest.

Net income in 2006 was NIS 499.5 million of which NIS 510.8 million is attributable to the equity holders of the Company and loss of NIS 11.3 million is attributable to minority interest.

Net income in 2007 excluding stock-base compensation expenses (Non GAAP measure) amounted to NIS 992.5 million (approximately US$ 258.0 million) compared to NIS 531.9 million in 2006.

Mr. Mordechay Zisser, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company, commented, "This is the year in which Elbit Imaging Ltd. has made good on its promises to the capital market. I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all of our investors who have believed in the Company over the years, and who now are able to participate in the fruits of our success. The management and employees of Elbit Imaging will do everything in their power to ensure that the Company will be able to publish similar, and hopefully even better, results in the future."

Mr. Shimon Yitzhaki, President and CEO of the Company, commented, "We are now concluding a fiscal year in which our shareholders' equity amounts to NIS 3.2 billion, an increase of NIS 1 billion over the corresponding period last year. This year we are gratified to report very high profitability, which flows on directly from the profitability which we reported in 2006.

Elbit boasts an impressive list of projects in the pipeline, both in Central and Eastern Europe (including mega-projects such as the "Casa Radio" Project in Bucharest and the "Dream Island" project in Budapest), as well as on the Indian sub-continent, such as the large residential project in Bangalore recently announced, and the project in Chennai. Management is confident that these projects will also generate high profits in the years to come.

During 2007, we have sold the Arena Plaza Shopping and Entertainment Center in Budapest in consideration for euro 381 million. The Arena Plaza is a high quality facility, and the largest of its kind in Hungary and indeed in the entire east European region, which was fully leased up at opening. Additionally, our hotels continue to show improved results and profitability, and during the course of 2008 we will be opening a new hotel in Bucharest, which will be our flagship facility in the hotel sector.

I am also pleased by management's decision to accelerate the development of new applications by InSightec. While this process is reflected in high R&D costs in the Company's profit and loss account, in the long run it is anticipated that these new developments will generate significant fruits in the future.

The Company has substantial cash reserves of approximately NIS 4 million available to it, which at this point in time in the capital markets constitutes a very significant advantage, and will assist the Company in taking advantage of commercial opportunities which we anticipate will be encountered in the months and years to come. The Company will make every endeavor to make prudent use of these cash reserves in order to attain attractive yields for its shareholders."
