NETANYA, Israel, May 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ: RADA) announced today its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.
Highlights of the first quarter of 2020
- Past and ongoing investments promoting strong growth, with quarterly revenues up 73% year-over-year to a record $15.1 million;
- Gross margin stability at 36%;
- Net income of $170,000 and positive Adjusted EBITDA of $863,000;
- US manufacturing facility ramping production;
- Quarter-end net cash position of $32.1 million.
- Reiterates 2020 revenues guidance in excess of $65 million, with continued sequential revenue growth throughout the year.
Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer commented, “Given the very significant opportunities we identified in the emerging business of mini-tactical radars a few years ago, particularly in the United States, we took the decision to invest strongly in our business over the past two years so that we can tap into the potential and meet the demand. These investments have now stabilized and are bearing their fruits. As our ahead-of-schedule profitability and our 73% revenue growth in the first quarter of 2020 demonstrate, the potential is starting to be revealed, and I believe this is only the beginning. Our end-markets are gradually shifting to the serial production phase and we expect that in the coming months we will start to build backlog for deliveries in 2021 and beyond, especially in the US. Our US manufacturing facility is ISO-certified and deliveries to US customers have commenced.”
Concluded Mr. Sella, “Until now, we have not seen any adverse financial impact from the Corona pandemic on our business. While taking every effort to fully protect our workforce globally, our business is considered a critical defense enterprise and we are manufacturing at full operational capacity in both Israel and at our new US manufacturing facility. The steps we have taken to ensure full business continuity, including increasing our inventory of components, have been successful and while the evolution of the pandemic situation is unpredictable, RADA is fully prepared to maintain its deliveries to customers on-time and as-planned. With net cash of over $32 million and maturing end-markets with growing demand, RADA has never been in a stronger position.”

Forward Looking Statements
Certain statements in this press release are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Act of 1995. Such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially. Such risk uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to, changes in general economic conditions, risks in product and technology developments, market acceptance of new products and continuing product demand, level of competition and other factors described in the Company's Annual Report on Form 20-F and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Information with Regard to non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company presents its financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP. RADA’s management uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is provided in this press release and the accompanying supplemental information because management believes this non-GAAP measure is useful for investors and financial institutions as it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period. As presented in this release, the term Adjusted EBITDA consists of net profit (loss) according to U.S. GAAP, excluding net financing expenses, taxes, depreciation and amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation expenses. Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure. Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including net income and our other GAAP results. Reconciliation between the Company's results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in the table below.
