RADA Reports Q1 2022 Results & Reaffirms Full Year Guidance

NETANYA, Israel, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ: RADA & TASE: RADA) announced today its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Highlights of the first quarter of 2022

  • The financial results were significantly impacted by the over 5-month US budget delay and the Continuing Resolution (CR) with respect to government appropriations to federal agencies which ended March 11, 2022;
  • Strong bookings of over $29 million, represents over-22% year-over-year growth in new business;
  • Quarterly revenues amounted to $22.5 million;
  • Net loss of $0.7 million compared with net income of $3.8 million in Q1 2021;
  • Adjusted EBIDTA of $1.3 million;
  • Quarter-end net cash position of $65.9 million;
  • Management reiterates 2022 revenue guidance of over $140 million.

Management Comments

Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer commented, "The peak of the impact of the US CR was in the first quarter and significant US revenues were pushed out to later in the current year. However, after 15 quarters of strong sequential growth, the CR, which is now behind us, was a temporary impact that did not change the bigger picture. Our strong cash position allowed us to continue to produce, invest, acquire inventory and recruit people according to our plans and given the opportunity ahead of us, we did not pause for a moment. The ending of the CR and the strong bookings already received in Q1,should provide for a strong recovery in the upcoming quarters, and we expect to maintain our normal margin profile and cash generation for 2022. Thus, our guidance expectations for 2022 remain unchanged. Recent developments have made us even more optimistic than we were at the start of 2022. The unfortunate war in Europe, which has led to a global awakening to the need for active defense solutions (VSHORAD, C-UAS, APS) much sooner than previously foreseen, will no doubt strongly benefit our business over the near future."

Forward Looking Statements  

Certain statements in this press release are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Act of 1995. Such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially. Such risk uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to, changes in general economic conditions, risks in product and technology developments, market acceptance of new products and continuing product demand, level of competition and other factors described in the Company's Annual Report on Form 20-F and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Information with Regard to non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company presents its financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP. RADA's management uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions. Adjusted EBITDA is provided in this press release and the accompanying supplemental information because management believes this non-GAAP measure is useful for investors and financial institutions as it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period. As presented in this release, the term Adjusted EBITDA consists of net profit (loss) according to U.S. GAAP, excluding net financing expenses, taxes, depreciation and amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation expenses. Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure. Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including net income and our other GAAP results. Reconciliation between the Company's results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in the table below.
