Mr. Yitzhak Nissan, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The results of the 2015 third quarter reflect improvements in various areas of the Company's operations. This is demonstrated by the significant increase in gross margins and the outstanding net profit we recorded in the quarter. In addition, revenues from the North American market showed meaningful growth as compared to the third quarter of 2014. In order to capitalize on this trend, we have engaged three new sales representative firms in the United States. One firm is based in the Pacific Northwest, one in Florida and the third firm is in the New England area."

Mr. Nissan added: "We are focusing on developing cutting edge technologies for high-end products, in order to serve our sophisticated defense, aerospace and medical customers. While this increases our R&D and manufacturing costs, these products carry higher profit margins. We believe that the new capabilities will provide us with a competitive advantage and provide the foundation for the future growth of the company."

"Eltek is continuing its Green Industry initiative, and we intend to exert significant efforts and make capital investments in order to be a leading environmentally conscious industrial company," Mr. Nissan concluded.

Use of EBITDA

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.
