Erez Meltzer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Eltek, who led the investment transaction and the sale of Mr. Maiman's holdings in the Company commented, "After 25 years of being the controlling shareholder of Eltek, Mr. Maiman decided to sell his holdings in the Company to a new owner with strategic ties to the Company's business. Nistec's investment in Eltek will enable Eltek to continue to grow and strengthen its leading position in the high-end PCB industry and expand into new niche markets within the industry.

Arieh Reichart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eltek commented, "I would like to thank Mr. Maiman for his long relationship with the Company, 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 industry." "We congratulate and welcome Nistec following its decision to significantly 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. Reichart concluded. 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."
