The Group’s activities expose it to foreign exchange risk. The Group’s comprehensive risk management plan focuses on activities that reduce to a minimum any possible adverse effects on the Group’s financial performance.
The Company’s management identifies and manages financial risks.
The Group is exposed to foreign exchange risk resulting from the exposure to different currencies, mainly the U.S. dollar. Foreign exchange risk arises on recognized assets and liabilities that are denominated in a foreign currency other than the functional currency.
The Group acts to reduce the foreign exchange risk by managing an adequate part of the available liquid sources in or linked to the dollar.
The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents, Short-term investments ,trade payables and other accounts payable approximate their fair value.
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. To increase the comparability of fair value measures, the following hierarchy prioritizes the inputs to valuation methodologies used to measure fair value:
The Company’s warrants exercisable into shares liability and the long term investment are classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy, and measured at fair value on a recurring basis.
Fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3):
The fair value of warrants granted was valued by using the Black-Scholes call option pricing model. Fair values were estimated using the following assumptions for the warrants call option (range of annualized percentages):
Sensitivity tests and the main work assumptions:
The selected changes in the relevant risk variables were determined based on management’s estimate as to reasonable possible changes in these risk variables.
The Group has performed sensitivity tests of principal market risk factors that are liable to affect its reported operating results or financial position. The sensitivity tests present the statement of comprehensive loss in respect of each financial instrument for the relevant risk variable chosen for that instrument as of each reporting date. The test of risk factors was determined based on the materiality of the exposure of the operating results or financial condition of each risk with reference to the functional currency and assuming that all the other variables are constant.
Based on the Group’s policy, the Group generally mitigates the currency risk arising from recognized assets and recognized liabilities denominated in foreign currency other than the functional currency by maintaining part of the available liquid sources in deposits in foreign currency. Accordingly, the main currency exposures presented in the sensitivity tables are for those deposits.
