Commenting on the results, Ben-Zion Diamant, Interim President and CEO stated, "Our first quarter results were significantly impacted by the costs associated with the severance agreement of the former CEO. Absent these one-time charges of $189,000, the Company would have reported a profit. While all of these expenses were recognized in our first quarter, it should be noted that the actual cash effect will take place over the balance of the year."

No fines were assessed. The Company has also applied for registration as a "Broker" and a "Manufacturer and Exporter" of Defense Articles/Defense Services with the U.S. Department of State under the ITAR. Upon approval, the Company will be well positioned to further penetrate this important market segment as a direct military article vendor and through its strategic alliance with Telkoor, its largest stockholder."
