Eltek Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Eltek Ltd. (NASDAQ:ELTK), a leading Israeli manufacturer of advanced flex-rigid circuitry solutions, announced today its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012:

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2012 was $1.7 million (16.1% of revenues) compared with gross profit of $2.4 million (20.0% of revenues) in the third quarter of 2011.

Operating profit for the third quarter of 2012 was $285,000 compared to operating profit of $959,000 in the third quarter of 2011.

Net profit for the third quarter of 2012 was $135,000 or $0.02 per fully diluted share compared to net profit of $573,000, or $0.09 per fully diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.

First nine months of 2012:

Revenues for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012 were $34.3 million compared to revenues of $35.3 million recorded in the first nine months of 2011.

Gross profit for the first nine months of 2012 was $6.0 million (17.4% of revenues) compared to gross profit of $7.0 million (19.7% of revenues) in the first nine months of 2011.

Operating profit for the first nine months of 2012 was $1.5 million compared to operating profit of $2.3 million in the first nine months of 2011.

Net profit for the first nine months of 2012 was $1.0 million, or $0.15 per fully diluted share, compared with net profit of $1.6 million, or $0.24 per fully diluted share, in the first nine months of 2011.

EBITDA:

In the third quarter of 2012, Eltek had EBITDA of $680,000 compared with EBITDA of $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2011. In the first nine months of 2012, Eltek had EBITDA of $2.8 million compared with EBITDA of $3.9 million in the same period in 2011.

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.

Management Comments:

Arieh Reichart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eltek, commented: "Eltek was able to report its seventh consecutive quarter of profitable operations in spite of a temporary production line problem, which reduced our revenues in the third quarter. I am glad to say that this temporary problem was resolved and is not expected to affect our ongoing production activity. The encouraging news is that this issue did not affect our company's business in its main target market in the US, in which Eltek continues to generate quarterly growth, despite the uncertainties in the global markets. Based on our order backlog for the fourth quarter we expect to return to a similar level of revenues as we have recorded in the previous six quarters."

"We recently signed a corporate purchasing agreement (CPA) with DRS Technologies, Inc. of the US, a Finmeccanica Company that is a leading supplier of integrated products, services and support to military forces, intelligence agencies and prime contractors worldwide, which employs approximately 70,000 people worldwide. Being selected as a preferred supplier by an important group like DRS and signing a CPA is very encouraging. It is evidence of Eltek's high-end technology, capability and reliability, which are key factors for the defense, aerospace and medical sectors," Mr. Reichart concluded.

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production? Can you automatically provide rich data with code-level detail back to the developers when issues occur in production?

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
