Gross profit for the third quarter of 2012 was $1.7 million (16.1% of revenues) compared with gross profit of $2.4 million (20.0% of revenues) in the third quarter of 2011.

Operating profit for the third quarter of 2012 was $285,000 compared to operating profit of $959,000 in the third quarter of 2011.

Net profit for the third quarter of 2012 was $135,000 or $0.02 per fully diluted share compared to net profit of $573,000, or $0.09 per fully diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.

First nine months of 2012:

Revenues for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012 were $34.3 million compared to revenues of $35.3 million recorded in the first nine months of 2011.

Gross profit for the first nine months of 2012 was $6.0 million (17.4% of revenues) compared to gross profit of $7.0 million (19.7% of revenues) in the first nine months of 2011.

Operating profit for the first nine months of 2012 was $1.5 million compared to operating profit of $2.3 million in the first nine months of 2011.

Net profit for the first nine months of 2012 was $1.0 million, or $0.15 per fully diluted share, compared with net profit of $1.6 million, or $0.24 per fully diluted share, in the first nine months of 2011.


In the third quarter of 2012, Eltek had EBITDA of $680,000 compared with EBITDA of $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2011. In the first nine months of 2012, Eltek had EBITDA of $2.8 million compared with EBITDA of $3.9 million in the same period in 2011.

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: "Eltek was able to report its seventh consecutive quarter of profitable operations in spite of a temporary production line problem, which reduced our revenues in the third quarter. I am glad to say that this temporary problem was resolved and is not expected to affect our ongoing production activity. The encouraging news is that this issue did not affect our company's business in its main target market in the US, in which Eltek continues to generate quarterly growth, despite the uncertainties in the global markets. Based on our order backlog for the fourth quarter we expect to return to a similar level of revenues as we have recorded in the previous six quarters."

"We recently signed a corporate purchasing agreement (CPA) with DRS Technologies, Inc. of the US, a Finmeccanica Company that is a leading supplier of integrated products, services and support to military forces, intelligence agencies and prime contractors worldwide, which employs approximately 70,000 people worldwide. Being selected as a preferred supplier by an important group like DRS and signing a CPA is very encouraging. It is evidence of Eltek's high-end technology, capability and reliability, which are key factors for the defense, aerospace and medical sectors," Mr. Reichart concluded.
