MANAGEMENT COMMENT
Commenting on the results, Mr. Saar Koursh, CEO of Magal, said, "We are pleased with these results, growing our top line and demonstrating a fair profitability level. These results support our expectations that the second half of 2016 will be better than the first half. In particular, we saw broad strength across our product portfolio as well as within our focus region, in North America. We see further potential in this region, with investments in critical sites and border security."

"We are strongly encouraged by the support of our shareholders who participated in our rights offering, which significantly strengthened our balance sheet. This will enable us to take advantage of many of the opportunities we are seeing in our end markets," continued Mr. Koursh
