Eltek Ltd., a global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards (PCBs), announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

“Despite the global challenges we encountered related to both the Covid-19 pandemic and the shortage of key raw materials, we were able to respond quickly, maintain operational efficiency and remain profitable in the first quarter”, said Eli Yaffe, Chief Executive Officer of Eltek. “We expect that revenues will rebound during the rest of the year and lost sales will be recovered upon the expected availability of key raw material (Pyralux AP) which was in short supply and with the authorization of the use of alternative raw materials by our customers,” added Mr. Yaffe. “The approval process with our customers for the use of the alternative raw materials is proceeding as planned and, is reducing our production costs. In addition, we are exploring ways to strengthen our position in the multi-billion dollar PCB market in North America, and can serve as a rapid growth engine for Eltek”, further explained Mr. Yaffe.

“We are operating in a challenging business environment and making the necessary adjustments to increase revenues, expand our operating efficiencies, improve customer satisfaction and maintain sustained profitability. We plan to strengthen our sales activities and continue our investments in new equipment to expand our manufacturing facilities and infrastructure during the remainder of the year as part of our strategic growth plan. Our board of directors approved our obtaining a loan of NIS 10 million (approximately $3.1 million) from Bank Leumi B.M. The loan has a term of ten years, with favorable terms, including a repayment schedule that starts after a 12 month grace period and carried interest of Prime + 1.50%, which is waived for the first year of the loan”, concluded Mr. Yaffe.
