The President and CEO of Elbit Systems, Joseph Ackerman, commented: "We are pleased to report another quarter of growth that is highlighted by record backlog and cash flow. I would like to underline our organic growth that amounted to more than 20% and made a substantial contribution to our overall growth of 36% following the acquisition of Tadiran. We have found that Tadiran has highly professional and talented employees, advanced technologies and a strong presence in the worldwide market. We believe the combined company will quickly evolve into a world leader in the areas of ground systems, communications and C4I. Together with our integration of Tadiran, and based upon the Group's highly qualified and dedicated personnel, strong global presence, growing backlog, continued investment in R&D and solid cash flow, we are confident of our continued success for the future".
