Management Comment

Commenting on the results, Zvika Alon, RADA's Chief Executive Officer said, "On July 30 we announced the closing of a public offering of our ordinary shares which resulted in $8,500,000 in gross proceeds to our company. As approved by our shareholders in April 16 2015, the net proceeds of this offering was applied in reduction of debt owed to shareholders and enabled the company to repay approximately 70% of such outstanding debt shortly after the closing. The reduction of our debt significantly improved our balance sheet. The transaction structure that was approved by RADA's shareholders, also included the contingent right of certain shareholders of the company to convert the outstanding balance of loans provided by them into ordinary shares at a discount to market, and results in a significant amount of non-cash financing expenses to the company. Such non-cash amortization expenses will continue until the shareholders may choose to convert all of the remaining debt held by them (which cannot be predicted by the company), or through August 2016 when the remaining debts are due to be repaid, whichever is earlier.

"The delays in production deliveries indicated in our first quarter 2015 earnings report, were almost fully recovered during the second quarter. However our total revenues during this second quarter are still low as some orders expected to be placed during the first half of 2015 did not occur. Although we continue to expect to receive these orders in the next months, the timing of deliveries for such orders is now uncertain. The low total revenues during the second quarter has reduced our gross margin as well as our operating income as we maintain a similar level of engineering, operating expenses and R&D as we did during 2014. We are encouraged by the previously announced initial orders we have received for our radar products; including from the Israeli MOD for multiple radars to enhance Israel's national alert capability for its southern border and the orders for testing and evaluation purposes received from a branch of the U.S. military and a number of other major military contractors."
