Management Comment 

Commenting on the results, Zvika Alon, RADA's Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased with our first quarter 2011 results, which put us on track with our strategic plan for the year. The increase in revenues can be partly attributed to the large scale integration projects we are executing for our Latin American customers. As a result of this increase, we have  increased our R&D investment, particularly in the high growth areas such as our navigation and radar products, which will help us expand our product offerings in the coming years.  Despite the weakened US dollar versus the Israeli Shekel this past quarter, we succeeded to mitigate its impact through hedging activities, which helped us reduce our financial expenses this quarter."

"Looking ahead," continued Mr. Alon, "we will continue to pursue large opportunities in the navigation and radar product markets and expect them to become major growth drivers for the Company in the future."
