Newport Beach, Calif., Feb. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: DPW) a diversified holding company (“DPW,” or the “Company”) announced that its global defense business, Gresham Worldwide, Inc. (“Gresham Worldwide”), has received a $1.4 million order from a leading defense and aerospace customer of its wholly owned subsidiary Enertec Systems 2001, Ltd. (“Enertec”).

Enertec, based in Israel, is a leading defense and aerospace designer and manufacturer of advanced multi-purpose electronic systems, including customized computer-based automated test equipment and turnkey solutions designed to perform in harsh environments and battlefield conditions.

After receiving a $2.9 million order in 2019 to develop a unique and complex testing system, Enertec recently received a follow-up order of an additional $1.4 million related to the testing system. Enertec’s management believes this customer has the potential to order over $10 million of Enertec products per year. DPW’s management believes that its recent restructuring of debt and improvement to its capital structure puts the Company in a stronger position to execute on expected growth in backlog from this and other customers of the Gresham Worldwide operating units.

Enertec’s CEO, Zvi Avni said, “The increase in orders from this important customer is the result of a multi-year sales development effort and reinforces Enertec’s strategic focus on delivering complex solutions for the defense and aerospace industry, both at home and abroad.”

DPW’s CEO and Chairman, Milton “Todd” Ault, III said, “Our recently announced $7.7 million exchange agreement improved our capital structure and enabled management to focus on the many opportunities we have to grow our business. We are committed to providing additional financial resources to enable Enertec and our other Gresham Worldwide defense subsidiaries to expand.”
