Netanya, Israel, March 27, 2017 - RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (Nasdaq: RADA) announced today its financial results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Management Comments

Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are very pleased with our improved results in the fourth quarter of 2016, as our financial metrics have begun to demonstrate the successful turnaround process that we are undergoing. Following the investments in our company last year by some leading institutional funds, our balance sheet is healthy and we have the working capital to support and invest in our continued growth ahead. We plan to invest further in our growth engine, our software-defined tactical radars, where we currently see significant opportunities globally. In particular, and along with our cooperation with DRS Technologies, we see much potential in the U.S. market for our technology and plan to bolster our presence in the United States to capitalize on these opportunities. Looking ahead, as we announced a few weeks ago, we expect revenues to reach at least $18 million in 2017, representing a year over year growth of 40%."

Added Yossi Ben Shalom, RADA’s chairman, “We congratulate Dov and his team for the strong improvement in the financial results in the quarter. RADA is a company with a lot of inherent potential in a growing market and we look forward to the improvement in performance in 2017.”
