ELTEK uses EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measurement. EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is provided to investors to complement results provided in accordance with GAAP, as management believes the measure helps illustrate underlying operating trends in the Company's business and uses the measure to establish internal budgets and goals, manage the business and evaluate performance. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation between the company's results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statement of Operations
Arieh Reichart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eltek commented: "For three consecutive quarters Eltek has seen growing demand from its current customer base, but production capacity constraints prevented the full exploitation of this potential. Our customers continue to see the value proposition of our products and have a great deal of trust in our company. Specifically, in our local market, we have seen greater interest from our local customers, reflecting the continued market recognition of our high quality and reliable products."
"We are pleased with Nistec's decision to invest in Eltek. This significant investment is an important validation of our vision and achievements and will support our long-term growth plans. This investment will enable Eltek to fully realize its growth potential as well as other opportunities in the diverse markets we serve," Mr. Reichart concluded.
Amnon Shemer, Chief Financial Officer of Eltek added: "The record revenues in this quarter and the ten consecutive quarters of profitability, demonstrate Eltek's potential for growth and profitability, which we could not fully capitalize on due to the lack of capital expenditures. We believe that Nistec's capital investment in the Company will enable us to invest in sophisticated manufacturing equipment, which is expected to assist us in growing the business of manufacturing high-end products and improve production efficiency. We believe that such investments will not only increase revenues but also improve gross margins and net income."
"In addition, the capital infusion into the Company will improve our cash position and strengthen our balance sheet through increasing shareholders' equity," Mr. Shemer concluded.
