RADA Electronic Industries Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2017 Results

NETANYA, Israel, March 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ:RADA) announced today its financial results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2017.

Highlights of 2017

  • 2017 was the strongest year in over 20 years, with excellent financial performance and margins across the board.
  • Revenues of $26.2 million (up 104% year-over-year) with Q4 revenues contributing $9 million (up 112% quarter-over-quarter).
  • Net income of $2.2 million and EBITDA of $3.5 million.
  • Generated approximately $1 million in operating cash flow; year-end net cash position of $12.4 million.

Management Comments

Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer commented, “2017 was by far the strongest year in over two decades. We more than doubled our revenues over last year and importantly, we returned the business to profitability. We also had a good year of cash generation and following an investment earlier in the year, our balance sheet is now strong with over $12 million in net cash and no financial liabilities, providing us with the capital to support continued growth over the coming years.”

“In the fourth quarter, we completed a major project of radar sales for counter-UAV systems, with very short-term delivery time for RADA’s highly strategic U.S. customer. This significantly boosted our revenues to record levels at over $9 million in the last quarter, up over 29% versus the prior quarter and more than double that of last year. We believe our success here will have strong potential to bring even more significant orders down the road, especially since the U.S. Army has recently stated that Short Range Air Defense and Active Protection Systems, have become a modernization priority.”

Concluded Mr. Sella, “In the near to mid-term, we are preparing to capitalize on the significant potential ahead of us, by opening a subsidiary in the United States, while investing further in our R&D capabilities. Looking to the coming first quarter of 2018, our ongoing business is strong and we expect to see revenues growth in the range of 30% over the first quarter of 2017.”
