The company merged with the shell company Asia Development Ltd in January 2016 and was listed on the stock exchange.

In mid-2017, Foresight’s share price rose to NIS 8, and after Intel acquired vision system company Mobileye for $ 15 billion, the market capitalization at that time exceeded 800 million NIS, but until March the company said Stock prices fell by more than 90% annually as they failed to enter into substantive contracts with any of the major automakers. Stock prices have risen eight-fold since their lows in March.
