JERUSALEM, April 21 (Reuters) -
* Israel’s Delek Group said on Friday its offer to take over North Sea oil producer Ithaca Energy has been accepted by Ithaca’s shareholders.
* Delek said it would pay about $350 million for 70.23 percent of Ithaca’s issued and outstanding common shares, not including the shares already owned by Delek or its affiliates.
* Delek said it will now hold 76 percent of Ithaca’s common shares and will begin consolidating its financial statement, estimating a profit of 150 million shekels ($41 million).
* The deal, announced in February, valued Ithaca Energy’s equity at $646 million, and builds on Delek’s expansion in the North Sea ahead of a planned London listing.
