Eltek Reports First Quarter 2010 Financial Results
Eltek Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELTK), the leading Israeli manufacturer of advanced flex-rigid circuitry solutions, announced today its financial results for the first quarter of 2010.
Revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 were $9.6 million, compared with revenues of $9.5 million in the first quarter of 2009.
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2010 was $1.0 million (11% of revenues), compared with gross profit of $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2009 (17% of revenues). The decrease in gross profit is attributable mainly to the lower exchange rates of the US dollar and the Euro against the NIS compared to the first quarter of 2009 (by 8.7% and 2.3%, respectively), and costs of revenues.
Operating loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $559,000 compared with an operating profit of $165,000 in the first quarter of 2009.Net loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $682,000 or ($0.10) per fully diluted share, compared with a net profit of $105,000 or $0.02 per fully diluted share in the first quarter of 2009. The decrease in net income is mainly attributable to the decrease in gross profit and increase in financial expenses, mainly as a result of the impact of the devaluation of the US dollar and the Euro against the NIS compared to the first quarter of 2009. EBITDA: In the first quarter ended March 31, 2010, Eltek had EBITDA of $16,000 compared with EBITDA of $646,000 in the first quarter of 2009. 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
