NETANYA, Israel, Aug. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ:RADA) announced today its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Management Comments
Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased with our financial performance, especially our growth in revenues and our strongly broadening pipeline of potential orders. Furthermore, the investments we have made in our newly established presence in the United States are enabling us to make some significant strategic progress and have led to increased traction for our radars in the region. We expect our presence will lead to strong growth in orders in the coming quarters."

Continued Mr. Sella, "For the year 2018, we expect revenues of around $27 million, ahead of last year's revenue, which itself was one of the strongest years ever for RADA. While last year's significant step up in revenue was built on the back of one specific order in the second half of the year, in 2018 it is made up of orders from a diverse range of customers. Some of these are initial radar orders from new customers with the possibility of follow-on orders at a ten-fold potential. As we move through 2018, I am increasingly excited with regard to our future and I am very happy that RADA is beginning to realize its large inherent potential," concluded Mr. Sella.

Revenues totaled $6.6 million in the second quarter of 2018, up 24% compared to revenues of $5.3 million in the second quarter of 2017.
