Management Comments

Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are very pleased with our strong performance in the third quarter, as revenues set at an all-time high with a significant 60% increase over the third quarter of last year. This represents the continued fruits of our long-term investments in our radar technology as well as the more recent investments in our US presence. Looking ahead, the market for tactical radars is showing tremendous growth and we are seeing significant interest and orders, not just from the US, but throughout the world. We believe this will continue to accelerate and power our growth in the quarters ahead. We maintain our expectation of full year revenues exceeding $43 million, as our high growth rate continues, bringing another record quarter and record year for RADA. We also expect our operating expenses to stabilize in the near-term, and along with the anticipated revenue growth, we expect to reach profitability during 2020.” 

2019 Third Quarter Summary

Revenues totaled $11.3 million in the quarter, compared with revenues of $7.0 million in the third quarter of 2018, an increase of 60% year-over-year and 12% sequentially.

Gross profit totaled $4.1 million (36% of revenues) in the quarter, an increase of 60% compared to gross profit of $2.5 million (36% of revenues) in the third quarter of 2018.

Operating expenses in the quarter were $4.6 million compared with $2.7 million in the third quarter of last year. The increase was primarily in R&D expenses and G&A expenses, and due to the investment in RADA’s presence and manufacturing facility in the United States.

Operating loss was $0.5 million in the quarter compared to operating loss of $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Net loss attributable to RADA’s shareholders in the quarter was $0.7 million, or $0.02 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.02 million, or $0.00 per share, in the third quarter of 2018.

As of September 30, 2019, RADA had net cash and cash equivalents of $16.7 million compared to $20.8 million as of year-end 2018. The decline reflects ongoing investments and higher inventory levels to meet the expected increase in customer demand.

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 September 30, 2019.
