Management Comments:

Mr. Yitzhak Nissan, Chairman of the Board, stated: "The decrease in our operating results was primarily attributable to a decline in orders, mainly for a key project, and the weakness of the U.S. dollar, as the exchange rate of the dollar compared to the NIS in the second quarter of 2014 was 6.6% lower than in the comparable period in 2013. We have implemented several important changes to our operations in order to improve our performance. We have lowered our costs by reorganizing the Company's management structure.  We are doing this by redefining areas of management responsibilities, thus creating increased flexibility to timely meet market demands. We believe that we have a clear technological edge, which along with the steps that we are taking will allow us to better compete and offer our customers highly sophisticated products at competitive prices."

Mr. Nissan added: "The Company's costs structure and aging equipment have limited our ability to provide competitive prices. We are making good progress in upgrading our production lines. The new equipment and the cost reduction plan, including renegotiation of raw material prices, along with the operating efficiency steps we are implementing, will enhance our competitive abilities, although we expect that the re-organization and management downsizing will require us to record one-time expenses of approximately $400,000 in the third quarter."

"As previously reported, Mr. Reichart, who has been the Company's CEO for 22 years, has stepped down and Mr. Roberto Tulman has assumed the position of interim CEO. I want to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Reichart for his long service and noteworthy achievements as the Company's CEO, and wish Mr. Tulman good-luck in fulfilling this position," Mr. Nissan concluded.

Use of EBITDA

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.

Forward Looking Statement:
Certain matters discussed in this news release are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to statements regarding expected results in future quarters, risks in product and technology development and rapid technological change, product demand, the impact of competitive products and pricing, market acceptance, the sales cycle, changing economic conditions and other risk factors detailed in the Company's Annual Report on Form 20-F and other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
