Reading time ( words)

Eltek Ltd., a global manufacturer and supplier of technologically advanced solutions in the field of printed circuit boards, announced its financial results for the full year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2020. 

Eli Yaffe, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased with the growth in our revenues and profitability in the fourth quarter and the significant change in our full year results. The improved results reflect the growth in our revenues and the continued improved operating efficiencies.” 

Eltek has managed successfully through the COVID pandemic in 2020 because of the following actions:

  • Eltek’s balance market sectors strategy enabled Eltek to mitigate the downturn in the commercial aerospace market through its involvement in the defence market and the medical devices market.
  • Eltek managed carefully its cash during the pandemic period by obtaining a reduced rate long term loan guaranteed by the government and by raising $5.7 million in a rights offering.
  • Eltek increased investments during 2020 capitalizing on the reduced prices of capital equipment due to Covid.

In addition, we were able to emphasis the following:

  • Eltek used its strong cash flow during 2020 in order to pay back part of its short-term loans. As a result, the ratio of Equity/Total Balance sheet increased to 43.4% at the end of 2020 compared to 27.5% at the end of 2019.
  • Eltek accelerated its R&D plans and was awarded a grant from the Israel Investment Authority and approval for participation in a special R&D program funded by the Israel Innovation Authority.

"The outbreak and spread of the Coronavirus has created new operational and business challenges, including a shortage of certain raw material that we are dealing with. The Covid pandemic forced Eltek to start a new expense reduction plan at the end of 2020 that will reduce further the breakeven point of the company,” concluded Yaffe.
