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.
