NETANYA, Israel, March 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (RADA) announced today its financial results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2018.

Management Comments

Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are pleased with our continued top line growth in 2018. Furthermore, we see strong acceleration in 2019 and beyond, and expect revenues of $40 million – up 43% year-over-year for 2019. This will be driven primarily by growth in tactical radars’ sales, with strong contribution from the US market.”

Continued Mr. Sella, “A major goal in 2019 is to invest in and grow our US business, which will include a new radar production line. This is in order to capitalize on the significant potential we are evidencing, and beginning to realize. We plan to increase our R&D and sales and marketing investments in order to maintain and enhance our leadership position in the market segment of tactical radars for the maneuver force.”

“Furthermore, during 2018, we strengthened our balance sheet and have adequate working and investment capital to take advantage of the many opportunities ahead of us. We are very encouraged with the solid level and stability of our gross margins as well as our growth potential ahead,” concluded Mr. Sella.
