Eltek: Net loss of USD 1.1 million

Israeli PCB manufacturer Eltek quarter ended June 30, 2017
Mr. Yitzhak Nissan, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "Our sales in the second quarter were $7.5 million, 14.6% lower than the second quarter of 2016, excluding Kubatronik. The decrease was primarily attributable to the continued competition in the local market and weakness in our global operations. The company is vigorously continuing the implementation of efficiency measures to its operating systems, which now support a higher sales rate relative to the rate prior to such implementation. Furthermore, the market is indicating a positive momentum with an increase in the frequency of incoming orders beginning this July. This increase includes a significant order from a governmental authority that we announced on July 24, 2017."

"As previously released, we have enhanced our marketing and sales forces in Israel, Europe and the United States, alongside our efforts made to streamline expenses. We are determined to bring the Company back to profitability in the near future. I believe that our actions to date, along with the renewal of manufacturing equipment that we are currently implementing, will assist us to reach these goals quickly and efficiently. When comparing the results to the second quarter and the first six months of 2017, please note that the operations of Kubatronik Leiterplatten GmbH were included in Eltek's results during the comparable period in 2016. Therefore, selected financial information is also presented on a proforma basis, excluding Kubatronik's results in 2017 (first six months and second quarter)."
