Wireless Telecom Group Announces 1.3M Increase In Share Repurchase Program And Resignation Of Hazem Ben-Gacem As Board Of Director

Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. (NYSE Amex: WTT) announced today that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has authorized a modification to the Company’s 2008 stock repurchase program. The authorization increases the number of shares allowed to be repurchased under the program from approximately 1.3 million shares to approximately 2.6 million shares. To date, approximately 1.1 million shares have been repurchased under the current program. Purchases will continue to be made from time to time in the open market at Management’s discretion. The stock repurchase program does not have an expiration date and the timing and amount of shares repurchased will be determined by a number of factors including the levels of cash generation from operations, cash requirements for investments, and current share price. The stock repurchase program may continue to be modified or discontinued at any time.

The Company also announced today the resignation of Hazem Ben-Gacem as a Director of the Company. His resignation was effective September 8, 2011. Mr. Ben-Gacem has served as a Director since July 2005. Also effective September 8, 2011, by unanimous vote, the Board elected Anand Radhakrishnan as a member of the Board to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Ben-Gacem’s resignation.

Paul Genova, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. stated, “Our Board’s authorization to expand the share repurchase program highlights the strength of our balance sheet and demonstrates a growing confidence in the Company’s ability to generate positive future cash flows. We feel more than ever that at this time the repurchase of our shares is an effective use of our capital which will benefit our shareholders.”

Genova continued, “On behalf of the Board, we want to thank Hazem for his considerable contributions over the years. His experience, guidance and leadership proved invaluable throughout his tenure on the Board of Directors.”
