Management Comments

Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer commented, “The market for our tactical radars is converting from the initial stage to the growth stage and is trending towards an inflection point, as demonstrated by our substantial revenue growth. We continue to invest in R&D to strengthen our leading position in this market and to capitalize on the significant growth opportunities ahead of us. We are building up our US entity with the goal of production readiness by the end of this year. Alongside the US market, we see very strong momentum coming from additional markets such as Israel, Europe and others. Accordingly, we recently increased our revenue guidance to over $43 million for the year, up over 54% versus last year.”

In February 2016, the FASB established Topic 842, Leases, by issuing ASU 2016-02, which requires lessees to recognize leases on-balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. Topic 842 was subsequently amended by ASU 2018-01, Land Easement Practical Expedient for Transition to Topic 842; ASU 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases; and ASU 2018-11, Targeted Improvements. The new standard establishes a right-of-use model (ROU) that requires a lessee to recognize a ROU asset and lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with a term longer than 12 months. Leases are classified as finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern and classification of expense recognition in the income statement. The Company adopted the new standard on the first day of fiscal 2019. The Company used the modified retrospective transition approach with the effective date as the date of initial application. Consequently, financial information will not be updated, and the disclosures required under the new standard will not be provided for dates and periods before January 2019. The new standard provides several optional practical expedients in transition. The Company elected the ‘package of practical expedients’, which permits us not to reassess under the new standard the prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs. The adoption of the standard resulted in a material effect on the Company’s financial statements with a balance sheet recognition of additional lease assets and lease liabilities of approximately $1.9 million as of June 30, 2019.
