Management Comment

Commenting on the results, Zvika Alon, RADA's Chief Executive Officer said,
"While our revenues in the first quarter were at a similar level to last
year's average quarter, the reduction in gross margin is due to the mix of
business in the quarter, which included a higher percentage of lower margin
programs than last year. As indicated in our 2012 annual report, our R&D
spending has been reduced when compared to last year as both our inertial
navigation and radar products are mature and our focus is on business
development and marketing activities around these two product lines. We are
very encouraged by the initial contracts we have secured for these new
products, mainly in the radar product line, from both the domestic and the
international markets and we expect additional contracts for these products to
come before the end of 2013."
