Explanatory Text:

Ofer Shofman, President & CEO at Valor, commented on the quarterly results: �This quarter marks the sixth consecutive quarter of revenue growth. We are showing exceptional growth quarter after quarter and we anticipate to continue with a strong growth rate in Q4 2004.�

The decrease in net profit stems from the large increase in R&D investments targeted at new product developments.

�We are continuing to successfully invest in R&D for new products, which will secure our future growth and strengthen our leadership position in the marketplace,� says Shofman and continues:

�We have completed an intense restructuring process in our Far East subsidiary and as a result have doubled our Asian work force led by a new management team. In the past six months we experienced a significant growth in our Asian business volume and over the next year we will continue to further expand our Asian subsidiary. I am confident that we now have the resources in place to grow our Asian business substantially and as a result to positively impact our overall top and bottom line results.�

The company has added this quarter new major clients to its customer base and has increased its presence in the worldwide PCB assembly market. With over $30 million in liquid assets the company�s financial situation is strong, positioning the company for potential M&A activities.

Shofman concludes: �I am happy with the large increase in product sales. With a growth factor of nearly 30% as compared to last year, we have surpassed our own predictions. This increase is also attributed to the fast and seamless integration of the TraceXpert solution into the Valor product family and emphasizes our ability to successfully incorporate M&A strategies into our corporate growth plan.�
