Some of the following statements are forward-looking in nature, and actual results may differ materially:

“We are pleased with our Q1 results, which were significantly better on the bottom line than in the previous quarter and in line with our goals” said Dan Hoz, Valor’s CEO. “We succeeded in increasing our net income despite market conditions and the minor decline in revenues, which, as in the preceding quarter, resulted mainly from weakness in the fabrication market, in which we operate via Frontline - our joint venture with Orbotech (Nasdaq: ORBK).”

“The cost saving measures which we have implemented throughout 2008 helped us improve our profitability”, said Hoz. “This, together with the signs of stabilization that we see in the market, indicates that our dynamic approach and actions are the right measures for these times, and we are working to improve our revenues and profitability even further in the following quarters”, Hoz concluded.
