FORT WORTH, Texas, March 25, 2014

FORT WORTH, Texas, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Elbit Systems of America,
LLC, a subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd., and a leading provider of high
performance products, system solutions, and support services, announced today
that it has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute, an independent center
of research promoting best practices in corporate ethics and governance, as a
2014 World's Most Ethical Company^®.

This is the first year that Elbit Systems of America has been honored with
this award, which recognizes organizations that continue to raise the bar on
ethical leadership and corporate behavior. World's Most Ethical Company
honorees understand the correlation between ethics, reputation and daily
interactions with their brand and that the award belongs as much to their
associates as it does to them. Elbit Systems of America is one of only three
companies in the aerospace and defense industry honored this year.

"It is an honor to receive the World's Most Ethical Companies recognition,"
stated Raanan Horowitz, Elbit Systems of America President and CEO. "The award
is a testimony to our dedication to establishing a culture of ethical
excellence through educational opportunities and best practices. Our
employees' commitment to do the right thing is what ensures we are operating
ethically for the benefit of our customers and partners. We will continue to
uphold a high level of commitment for meeting and exceeding their
expectations."

"The entire community of World's Most Ethical Companies believe that
customers, employees, investors and regulators place a high premium on trust
and that ethics and good governance are key in earning it," said Ethisphere's
Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. "Elbit Systems of America joins an
exclusive community committed to driving performance through leading business
practices. We congratulate everyone at Elbit Systems of America for this
extraordinary achievement."

The World's Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere
Institute's Ethics Quotient™ framework. The Ethics Quotient framework has been
developed over years of effort to provide a means to assess an organization's
performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way. The information
collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core
competencies, rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk,
sustainability, compliance and ethics. The Ethics Quotientframework and
methodology was determined, vetted and refined by the expert advice and
insights gleaned from Ethisphere's network of thought leaders and from the
World's Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel.

Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program
(25%), reputation, leadership and innovation (20%), governance (10%),
corporate citizenship and responsibility (25%) and culture of ethics (20%).
