- Targets over $250 million in organic revenue in 3-4 years, implying accelerating growth over the coming years;
- APS revenues, which are not included in the 2022 guidance, are expected to provide meaningful contribution from 2023 onwards;
- Non-U.S. derived revenues are expected to reach parity with that of U.S. sourced revenues by the end of 2024; and
- M&A is expected to become an accretive part of RADA’s overall growth strategy in the near term.

Dov Sella, RADA’s CEO, commented, “We were pleased to host our first analyst and investor webinar, providing expectations for the coming year as well as our longer-term targets, and we hope to make this a regular occurrence. We reiterated our Total Addressable Market (TAM) estimate of $6 billion over the coming decade, while half of it – the APS market – is expected to positively impact our revenues from 2023 and onwards. To date, we have only tapped a small portion of our overall addressable markets.”
Continued Mr. Sella, “We continue to be excited with our potential for strong growth in 2022. Our revenue guidance of $140 million has three contributing factors. The U.S. SHORAD and Point-Defense market is in the stabilization phase and 90% of our $90 million forecast for 2022 is incorporated in the defense budget line items, with some already in our backlog. Based on our multi-year $1bn pipeline of non-U.S.-based potential business, we expect revenues of $40 million from outside of the U.S. in 2022. Finally, avionics are expected to generate an additional $10 million of revenues in 2022.”
Concluded Mr. Sella, “Looking further out, we expect an acceleration in revenue growth starting in 2023 due to the APS segment. In addition, while non-U.S.-based revenues contributed a quarter of our revenue in 2021, we expect such revenues to accelerate in the coming years, reaching parity with our U.S. revenues by the end of 2024. Looking out longer-term, over the coming 3 to 4 years, our organic growth target is to surpass the $250 million revenue mark. In addition, we believe it is the right time for us to update our strategic growth roadmap to include M&A activity, which is aimed at enhancing our medium-term organic growth.”
