MGT Names Robert Ladd As President And Chief Executive Officer

MGT Capital Investments, Inc. ("MGT," “We,” or "the Company") (AMEX: MGT - News), a holding company with operations in the healthcare industry, today announced that Robert Ladd has been named President and Chief Executive Officer, effective January 9, 2012. Mr. Ladd had previously served as interim President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

“We believe that we have made significant progress in 2011 by simplifying and rationalizing MGT and its subsidiaries. With consolidated cash of approximately $3.7 million at year-end 2011, and no debt, we believe that the Company is well-positioned to implement the necessary acquisition and divestiture strategies to support growth and investment returns for our shareholders. As the largest stockholder of MGT, I am excited to lead this transformation,” stated Robert Ladd, President and Chief Executive Officer.
