Norsat Wins Multiple Business Awards For Export Success And Leadership

Norsat International Inc. (“Norsat” or “the Company”) (TSX: NII and OTC BB: NSATF), a leading provider of innovative communication solutions that enable the transmission of data, audio and video for challenging applications and environments has received a BC export award for Advancing Technology and Innovation. The BC export Awards recognize the innovative approaches and unique contributions of British Columbia’s best export companies across all sectors and in all regions of the province, and the Advancing Technology and Innovation category is specific to companies that effectively harness the powers of intellectual property and value-added know-how. Norsat’s strong export sales, innovative product development and excellent international customer relationships were key factors in the award win, and the company is pleased with the result.

In a further win for the Company, President & CEO Dr. Amiee Chan has won a Women’s Executive Network (WXN) Top 100™ Award, for Canada’s most powerful women. Marking a decade of celebrating female leaders, WXN today revealed the recipients of the 10th annual Top 100™ Award and will follow the announcement with a gala on December 5, 2012. Dr. Chan joins a community of 653 women who have received the Top 100™ Award over the last decade, recognizing the highest achieving female leaders in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors in Canada. Winners are selected based on their strategic vision and leadership, their organization’s financial performance, and their commitment to their communities.

Norsat President & CEO, Dr. Amiee Chan stated, “It is a pleasure to see our hard work recognized through these business award wins. Norsat has always focused on developing and maintaining strong relationships with our international customers, and we now have unique expertise in addressing the logistical difficulties of export sales. The BC Export Award win is a great reaffirmation of this international expertise. I am also deeply honoured to be joining the Women’s Executive Network’s prestigious group of Top 100™ award winners. I have had the pleasure of leading Norsat for over six years, and know well the challenges involved in strategic company leadership, and the satisfaction of seeing Norsat grow and succeed on an international stage. It’s an honour to be recognized for this by WXN.”
