ICL was established in Israel in 1968 as a government-owned and -operated company in Israel, and operates today as a limited liability company under the laws of Israel. In 1975, the shares of certain companies (including, among others, ICL Dead Sea, the consolidated companies ICL Rotem, the bromine companies and Tami) were transferred to ICL. In 1992, following a decision of the Israeli government to privatize ICL, the State published its tender prospectus, 20% of the Company's shares were sold to the public and its shares were registered for trading on the Tel‑Aviv Stock Exchange. Prior to our public share issuance, a Special State Share in our Company and our main Israeli subsidiaries was issued to the State of Israel (for additional details regarding the terms of the Special State Share, see "Item 10 - Additional Information- B. Memorandum, Articles of Association and Special State Share"). In 1995, the State of Israel sold its controlling interest in the Company (representing approximately 24.9% of our shares) to Israel Corporation Ltd., a public traded Company on the TASE (ILCO), which was controlled at that time by the Eisenberg family. A majority of the ordinary shares held by the state of Israel were sold during the following years. In 2000, the State of Israel ceased to be a stakeholder in terms of holding any of our ordinary shares, but it retained the Special State Share. In 1999, the Ofer Group acquired the Eisenberg family's shares in Israel Corporation. In September 2014, we listed our shares on the New York Stock Exchange, and they are currently traded in Tel Aviv and in New York.
As of December 31, 2018, Israel Corporation Ltd. holds approximately 45% of our outstanding ordinary shares and approximately 45.87% of the shareholders' voting rights.
