Eltek Reports Record Revenues for First Quarter 2013

  • $12.5 Million in Revenues
  • Net Income of $127,000

PETACH-TIKVA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Eltek Ltd. (NASDAQ:ELTK), the leading Israeli manufacturer of advanced flex-rigid circuitry solutions, announced today its results for the first quarter of 2013.

Revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $12.5 million, compared to revenues of $12.0 million in the first quarter of 2012.

Gross Profit for the first quarter of 2013 was $1.8 million (14% of revenues), compared to gross profit of $2.3 million (19% of revenues) in the first quarter of 2012. Gross profit decreased mainly due to increases in the cost of labor and raw materials.

Operating Profit for the first quarter of 2013 was $230,000 compared to the operating profit of $716,000 in the first quarter of 2012.

Net Profit for first quarter of 2013 was $127,000 or $0.02 per fully diluted share, compared to net profit of $526,000 or $0.08 per fully diluted share in the first quarter of 2012.


In the quarter ended March 31, 2013, Eltek had EBITDA of $613,000 compared to EBITDA of $1.2 million in the first quarter of 2012.

ELTEK uses EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measurement. EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is provided to investors to complement results provided in accordance with GAAP, as management believes the measure helps illustrate underlying operating trends in the Company's business and uses the measure to establish internal budgets and goals, manage the business and evaluate performance. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation between the company's results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statement of Operations.

Management Comments:

Arieh Reichart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eltek, commented: "I am pleased to report that our customers continue to see the value proposition of our products and have a great deal of trust in our company. Specifically, in our own backyard, we have seen greater interest from our local customers, reflecting the continued market recognition of our high quality and reliable products."

"In addition, despite the increase in the cost of raw materials and labor, we were able to achieve a growth in revenues, with $12.5 million in revenues for the first quarter of 2013, while maintaining Eltek's ability to stay profitable despite external market-changing elements," Mr. Reichart concluded.

Amnon Shemer, Chief Financial Officer of Eltek, added: "Although we have been profitable for the last two years, our main challenge continues to be obtaining additional financing, including lines of credit for working capital and investment in fixed assets that are required for the expansion of our production capacity and to replace or refurbish old equipment."
