Hi Ka Fatt,

  1. When it comes to investing overseas market outside of your home country, there is always country risk as will not be 100% sure whether how the business actually fare over there. – We have not invest in any Israel company. 
  2. Convertible notes are debt that will cause future dilution to the outstanding shares. You just have to add it into your debt calculation. On top of that, you have to use diluted shares (diluted shares account for future dilution) to calculate the EPS.
