Commenting on the results, Zvika Alon, RADA's Chief Executive Officer said, “Our revenues during the third quarter were negatively impacted as a result of delays, due to prolonged negotiations and the contracting processes of our customers, in securing several large avionic product orders that were expected during the first half of 2015, but were not received until recently. The low level of revenues during the third quarter reduced our gross margin as well as our operating income as our engineering, operating and R&D expenses remained consistent with such expenses in 2014. As we reported during the third quarter, we received several avionics production orders that we believe will maintain our current production rate and sales volume of our avionics business through 2016. During the remainder of 2015 we will also deliver a limited number of radar units to several potential new customers for evaluation of the units as components of systems being developed by them. We hope that that these evaluations will be successful and that these companies decide to proceed with additional orders as soon as 2016.
On July 30, 2015, we completed 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 an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company held on April 16, 2015, the net proceeds of this offering was used to reduce debt owed to shareholders and enabled us to repay approximately 70% of their then outstanding debt. The reduction of our debt significantly improved our balance sheet. The shareholders also approved the right for the lenders (who are affiliated with shareholders and the controlling shareholder of the Company) the right to convert the outstanding balance of loans they provided to the Company into ordinary shares at a discount to market. This caused the recognition of debt discount derived from this beneficial conversion feature and resulted in a significant amount of non-cash financing expenses to the Company. Such non-cash amortization expenses will continue until the earlier of the exercise of the conversion feature of the debt or the maturity of such debt in August 2016.
This remaining outstanding non-bank debt, in the outstanding amount of $3.1 million is subject to an existing Standstill Agreement between the lender and the Company. The lender cannot (except in extraordinary circumstances) enforce this debt before August, 2016. As of this time we do not project the ability to repay this debt from operations. We also need to obtain additional working capital to pay trade vendors on a timely basis and to support our research and development activities through 2016. If we do not resolve these issues, there will be substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a “going concern.” Therefore, the Company is actively negotiating with the lender to have it exercise its conversion rights and is also seeking to raise additional funds to meet this obligation from others. The company is also actively attempting to raise additional funds to support its working capital needs from third parties and our controlling shareholder.”
