ELTEK uses EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measurement. EBITDA is
calculated by adding back to net income interest, taxes, depreciation and
amortization. EBITDA is provided to investors to complement results provided
in accordance with GAAP, as management believes the measure helps illustrate
underlying operating trends in the Company's business and uses the measure to
establish internal budgets and goals, manage the business and evaluate
performance. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute
for comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
Reconciliation between the company's results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is
provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statement of
Operations

Management Comments:

Arieh Reichart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Eltek commented: "For
three consecutive quarters Eltek has seen growing demand from its current
customer base, but production capacity constraints prevented the full
exploitation of this potential. Our customers continue to see the value
proposition of our products and have a great deal of trust in our company.
Specifically, in our local market, we have seen greater interest from our
local customers, reflecting the continued market recognition of our high
quality and reliable products."

"We are pleased with Nistec's decision to invest in Eltek. This significant
investment is an important validation of our vision and achievements and will
support our long-term growth plans. This investment will enable Eltek to fully
realize its growth potential as well as other opportunities in the diverse
markets we serve," Mr. Reichart concluded.

Amnon Shemer, Chief Financial Officer of Eltek added: "The record revenues in
this quarter and the ten consecutive quarters of profitability, demonstrate
Eltek's potential for growth and profitability, which we could not fully
capitalize on due to the lack of capital expenditures. We believe that
Nistec's capital investment in the Company will enable us to invest in
sophisticated manufacturing equipment, which is expected to assist us in
growing the business of manufacturing high-end products and improve production
efficiency. We believe that such investments will not only increase revenues
but also improve gross margins and net income."

"In addition, the capital infusion into the Company will improve our cash
position and strengthen our balance sheet through increasing shareholders'
equity," Mr. Shemer concluded.
