THIS FORM 6-K, INCLUDING EXHIBIT 99.1 ATTACHED HERETO, IS HEREBY INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE INTO THE REGISTRANT'S REGISTRATION STATEMENTS ON FORM F-3 (NOS. 333-199696 AND 333-144171) AND FORM S-8 (NOS. 333-187533, 333-102288 AND 333-92491), AND TO BE A PART THEREOF FROM THE DATE ON WHICH THIS REPORT IS SUBMITTED, TO THE EXTENT NOT SUPERSEDED BY DOCUMENTS OR REPORTS SUBSEQUENTLY FILED OR FURNISHED.

Ellomay Capital Ltd. (the "Company") hereby announces that on February 28, 2017, it published with the Israel Securities Authority and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange ("TASE") a final prospectus (the "Prospectus") for the offering, in Israel only (the "Offering"), of a new Series B Debentures (the "Debentures") in aggregate principal amount of up to NIS 100 million (approximately $27 million).

The Offering and the listing of the Debentures on the TASE is subject to receipt of a listing approval by the TASE, which is dependent, among other things, on the fulfillment of the TASE's conditions for public float and value and which, should all conditions be met, is expected to be granted upon the publication of the final terms of the Offering. The completion of the Offering is also subject to the prevailing market conditions.

The Debentures are nonconvertible and unsecured and are not linked (principal or interest). A public tender will be held with respect to the annual interest rate, which may not exceed 4.5%. The principal of the Debentures is repayable in six annual installments as follows: (i) 15% of the principal shall be paid on June 30 of each of the years 2019-2022 (inclusive) and (ii) 20% of the principal shall be paid on June 30 of each of the years 2023-2024 (inclusive). Interest on the outstanding principal of the Debentures is payable on June 30 and December 31 of each of the years 2017 through and including June 30, 2024. The principal amount of the Debentures offered and maximum interest rate may be revised in accordance with the Israeli securities regulations and/or as described the Prospectus.
 
The indenture for the Debentures includes customary provisions and also includes the following: (i) a negative pledge such that the Company may not place a floating charge on all of its assets, subject to certain exceptions, and (ii) an obligation to pay additional interest for certain security rating decreases and failure to meet certain financial covenants. The indenture for the Debentures further includes a number of customary causes for immediate repayment including the default of the Company in connection with certain financial covenants.

The net proceeds from the proposed offering are expected to be used for new investments, acquisitions or collaborations, including under the agreement with Ludan Energy Overseas B.V., and for other general corporate purposes. Portions of the prospectus are attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.

The Company further announced today that Standard & Poors Maalot Ltd. assigned a rating of  "ilA-" for the Debentures in an aggregate amount of up to NIS 100 million.

A security rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities, it may be subject to revision or withdrawal at any time by the assigning rating organization, and each rating should be evaluated independently of any other rating.

The Offering described in this report, if made, will be made in Israel only and not to U.S. persons. The Debentures, if offered, will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and will not be offered or sold in the United States without registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements according to the U.S. Securities Act of 1933. Nothing in this report constitutes a public offering or an invitation to purchase the Debentures.
