 ORBOTECH LTD., FORMERLY OPTROTECH LTD., ANNOUNCES CLOSE
 OF FTC INVESTIGATION
 NES ZIONA, Israel, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Optrotech Ltd. (NASDAQ-NMS: OPTKF) announced today that it has completed its name change to Orbotech Ltd. Trading in the ordinary shares of Orbotech Ltd. on the NASDAQ National Market System will be conducted under the symbol "ORBKF" beginning Nov. 9, 1992.
 Orbotech Ltd. further announced that the staff of the Federal Trade Commission has informed it that the commission had formally closed its investigation of the possible anticompetitive effects of the merger of Optrotech Ltd. and Orbot Systems Ltd. and would not take any action.
 As a result of expenses in connection with the integration of the operations of Optrotech Ltd. and Orbot Systems Ltd., it is expected that the combined companies' results of operations will be adversely affected during the balance of 1992 by substantial restructuring and reorganization charges. In addition, as previously announced, results during the third quarter of the year will be adversely affected by a substantial decrease in sales activities, partially due to the announcement of the merger. This decrease in sales activities are expected to contribute to losses expected to be reported for the fourth quarter of 1992.
 Orbotech Ltd. is a major supplier of inspection equipment and CAD/CAM products for the printed circuit board industry and a manufacturer of laser imaging devices for the graphic arts industry.
