"We appreciate the strong support of our stockholders and look forward to being able to move beyond the distraction of a proxy contest and return our full attention to delivering on Onvia's very significant potential and enhancing value for all Onvia stockholders," said Hank Riner, Onvia's Chief Executive Officer.  "We continue to believe that the concrete actions taken by our Board and management team over the past 18 months to refocus the business model as a provider of high-value solutions to a well-defined market rather than being a commodity provider of sales leads have positioned Onvia for long-term growth, sustainable profitability, market leadership and increasing returns for investors."

In addition to the proxy solicitation firm of Georgeson Inc., which served as proxy solicitor, Onvia was advised by the law firm of Alston + Bird LLP.
