Apple reportedly has purchased its first Israel-based company, Anobit Ltd., a flash storage solutions provider, for an estimated $500 million.

The deal for the Herzliya-based startup reportedly was finalized Tuesday. Anobit’s management was gathering its staff early Tuesday afternoon to formally announce the acquisition by Apple, the Israeli financial daily Calcalist reported.

The purchase comes on the heels of an announcement last week that Apple will open a development center in Israel focusing on semiconductors, reportedly the first to be opened outside of Apple’s California headquarters.
