NETANYA, Israel, Nov. 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RADA Electronic Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ:RADA) announced today its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Management Comments

Dov Sella, RADA's Chief Executive Officer commented, "Reporting first time as RADA's CEO, I am happy to indicate that performance in the third quarter improved compared to the first half of 2016 as our backlog continued to grow, especially in our radar business. We anticipate that our operating results will continue to improve in the next quarter and throughout 2017. Our recent capital raise of $3 million from our controlling shareholder, DBSI, and the Phoenix Insurance Company Ltd., one of Israel's largest insurance companies, significantly strengthened our balance sheet and will enables us to move full speed ahead in executing our growth strategy."

Added Yossi Ben Shalom, RADA's chairman, "We are very happy to welcome Phoenix, a leading Israel-based and long-term focused institutional investor, as one of our major shareholders, joining DBSI. This represents a vote of confidence from an important player in the capital markets of our vision for the future and management's potential to create significant shareholder value."
