BROKEN ARROW, Okla., May 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (“ADDvantage” or the “Company”) today announced that Institutional Stockholder Services Inc. (“ISS”), a leading proxy advisory firm, has recommended that ADDvantage stockholders vote “FOR” the two proposals related to the sale of the Company’s Cable TV segment at the Company’s upcoming Special Meeting to be held on May 29, 2019.

ISS is widely recognized as one of the leading institutional proxy advisory firms in the world and their analysis and recommendations are relied on by many major institutional investment firms, mutual funds and fiduciaries around the globe.

In its report, ISS concluded,

Pursuing a sale with Leveling 8 appears to be the company’s best option in light of the declining cable television market, the eroding financial and operating results of the company’s cable segment, the informal market check that implied little third party Interest, and the company’s failed attempt at disposing of the cable segment in 2010. The proceeds from the transaction are necessary to address working capital needs from the company's recent purchase of Fulton and the Telco businesses, as well as to fund growth initiatives and strategic acquisition opportunities.  In consideration of these factors, support for the transaction is warranted.”

Commenting on the ISS report, Joe Hart, President and CEO of the Company stated, “The ISS recommendation is consistent with our view that the sale transaction is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders and is necessary to fund our growth initiatives in the telecommunications industry.”

The Sale Transaction was unanimously recommended by our Board of Directors, who urges our stockholders to vote FOR the Sale Transaction proposal today.
