Shares of Eltek, Ltd. (NASDAQ:ELTK) Dip Following 2016 Third Quarter Financial Results

Global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards, Eltek, Ltd. (NASDAQ:ELTK), releases 2016 Q3 financial reports.

PETACH-TIKVA, Israel, Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Eltek Ltd. (ELTK), a global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards, announced today its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Mr. Yitzhak Nissan, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Third quarter revenues ($9.3 million) were lower than the revenues in the third quarter of 2015 ($10.8 million). The decrease was due to competitive pressures in Israel and certain European countries, and a continued weakness in the German PCB market, which led to a decline in sales of our subsidiary, Kubatronik. We have also experienced operational difficulties that impeded our ability to meet the demand for our products. We have recently made several changes in our manufacturing operations to address these difficulties.

The demand for our products in Italy and the Netherlands, was strong. We believe that the growing need for complex PCBs in the defense industry will benefit us in the long run. We remain focused on our target to become the leading company in our field in terms of technology, on time delivery and product quality,” Mr. Nissan concluded.
