Elbit Imaging Ltd. (“EI” or the “Company”) (TASE, NASDAQ: EMITF) announced today that,
on March 3, 2013 it was informed that a purported class action lawsuit was filed on

Tel-Aviv Jaffa District Court, against the Company, its controlling shareholders, officers
and others. The complaint requests that the court recognize the lawsuit as a valid class
action and alleges, among other things, that the Company’s announcements on February 5,
2013 and February 19, 2013 that it would suspend its principal and interest payments to
its note holders constitutes a breach of the trust agreements relating to the Company’s
Series A and Series B notes. The lawsuit seeks damages in the amount of NIS 240 million
(approximately $64.5 million). The Company plans to defend against it vigorously.
