CSP Inc. Announces Overwhelming Shareholder Support for Company's Director Nominees at Annual Meeting

BILLERICA, Mass., Feb 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- CSP Inc. (Nasdaq:CSPI), a provider of IT solutions, systems integration services and dense cluster computing systems, announced that shareholders overwhelmingly voted for the Company's director nominees at its annual meeting today. Of the votes cast, 89% of shareholders voted for CSP's director nominees to 11% for those put forward by North & Webster. North & Webster announced it was withdrawing its proxy contest today shortly before the annual meeting.


"We appreciate the continued support of our shareholders and remain committed to enhancing shareholder value," said CSP Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer Victor Dellovo. "While this proxy contest unfortunately necessitated a high level of management time and significant Company expense, we are pleased with the positive and decisive result." The Company's slate of directors was unanimously supported by the leading proxy advisory firms, Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) and Glass Lewis. Nevertheless, the proxy fight with North & Webster was expensive and time-consuming. Those expenses will necessarily be reflected in the Company's results for the quarter and fiscal year. In addition, North & Webster made a number of public statements that mischaracterized our audited financial statements, and impugned our Board of Directors and management team without any basis in fact.
