Management Comment

Commenting on the results, Zvika Alon, RADA's Chief Executive Officer said, "We saw a major increase in revenues during 2010. Even more encouraging was the increase in our operating profit, especially net profit, which more than tripled when compared with 2009. This increase is due in part to the large scale integration projects we are executing for our Latin American customers. These integration projects have generated a 90% growth in operating profit, but based on a reduced gross margin. These large projects, along with other new contracts reported during 2010, together totaled approximately $28 million, and will continue to positively impact our results during 2011."

"Looking ahead to 2011," continued Mr. Alon, "we expect to see sustained growth from key strategic regions such as Latin America, as well as a further increase in investment in research and development of our Inertial Navigation and Radar product families that we hope will become major growth drivers for the Company in the future."
