Management Comment

Commenting on the results, Zvika Alon, RADA's Chief Executive Officer said, "While our revenues in the first quarter were at a similar level to last year's first quarter, we experienced a significant reduction in cost of revenues, operating expenses and financial expenses. The increase in our gross margin is attributable to the significant reduction of low margin programs during the last six months, while the decrease in operating expense is mainly due to reduction in our R&D spending as our Inertial Navigation and Ground Radar products have reached maturity. Our first quarter results, consistent with our fourth quarter 2013 results, indicate that we are maintaining the previously reported trend of improved operating and net profit. These factors, together with the growing revenues generated from Inertial Navigation and Ground Radar products' sales are expected to continue and favorably influence our 2014 results."
