supporting our 10 fold growth since he first acquired shares in Eltek, and
helping in its positioning at the very front of the worldwide Flex-Rigid PCB

invest in Eltek. This investment is an important validation of our vision and
achievements and will support our long-term growth plans. For three
consecutive quarters Eltek has seen growing demand from its current customer
base, and production capacity constraints prevented the full exploitation of
this potential. This investment will enable Eltek to fully realize such growth
potential as well as other opportunities in the diverse markets we serve," Mr.
Yitzhak Nissan, CEO and owner of Nistec commented, "Nistec is a well-known and
highly regarded player in the PCB design and EMS industry for various
electronics segments in Israel. Investing in Eltek adds an important link in
the chain to our group, combining the design and assembly with the production
of PCBs. Our joining forces with Eltek will ensure our ability to deliver a
full solution for our customers' needs."
"I know Eltek for many years, recognizing its know-how and expertise in the
manufacture of PCBs. Eltek has significant experience in supporting major
customers worldwide in the defense, aerospace and medical industries. I
believe this investment will greatly support Eltek's growth strategy in its
existing markets while allowing it to enter into new markets. I am excited
about the opportunity to develop the potential leverage hidden in joining
forces and look forward to working together with Eltek's management, with the
ultimate goal of providing more value to our customers and shareholders."
