Clinton Group Calls On Board Of Digital Generation To Augment Its Board Of Directors

NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Clinton Group, Inc. ("Clinton Group") today announced that intends to nominate three independent directors to the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Digital Generation, Inc. (Nasdaq: DGIT) ("Digital Generation" or the "Company).

Clinton Group noted that the share price of the Company has declined by more than 48% in the year ended October 31, 2012.

In July 2012, the Company announced that it hired Goldman Sachs to help the Company explore strategic alternatives. The Company's Executive Chairman has indicated in public filings that he may be interested in acquiring the Company and a Bloomberg News article indicated that Extreme Reach Inc. has also expressed interest in acquiring the Company.

"As a large stockholder of the Company, we welcome a sale of the business at a fair price to the Company's Executive Chairman or another buyer," said Mr. Joseph De Perio, Senior Portfolio Manager at Clinton Group. "However, if the Board cannot complete its strategic process by the annual meeting, we believe it is in the interests of all stockholders to elect directors who can sell the business quickly or help guide the Company to a brighter future as an independent Company."
