PETACH TIKVA, Israel, Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Eltek Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELTK), a global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards (PCBs), today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.
Third Quarter 2022 Highlights
"Revenues in the third quarter of 2022 amounted to $10.3 million. This result is in line with the Company's policy to increase production capacity in order to support higher revenues and net income. We estimate that this trend will continue as we will progress in the first phase of our investment program during the years 2023 and 2024. Our backlog continues to be strong as we are benefiting from the growing demand for high-end products, especially in the defense and medical sectors. We believe that this trend of strong demand for high technology products will continue," said Eli Yaffe, CEO of Eltek.
"In the operational area, we continue to carry out optimization procedures in the production lines and are continuing our efforts to absorb and train new employees. We increased our number of employees by 18% since the beginning of the year. During the quarter, we managed the successful installation and operation of three brand new production machines and during Q4 2022 we will install two additional machines," continued Mr. Yaffe.
"The net profit in the quarter amounted to $1 million, most of which was achieved from current activity, without a material impact from financing income as was the case in the previous quarter," concluded Mr. Yaffe.
