Company Will Restate Financial Results for Prior PeriodsAnnounces Departures of CFO and Other Executives Engages Interim Chief Financial Officer BLUE BELL, Pa., April 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UniTek Global Services, Inc. ("UniTek" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:UNTK), a premier provider of permanently outsourced infrastructure services to the telecommunications, broadband cable, wireless, transportation, public safety and satellite television industries, today announced estimated preliminary financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012. For the year ended December 31, 2012, UniTek estimated preliminary revenue of approximately $442.5 - $447.0 million, adjusted EBITDA 1 of approximately $45.0 - $48.2 million and net loss of approximately $48.2 - $41.4 million. The estimated 12-month backlog 2 as of December 31, 2012 totaled approximately $510 million. Restated Financial Results The Company also announced that it will restate its financial results for the interim periods ended March 31, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 29, 2012, the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 and the interim period ended October 1, 2011. As a result of an ongoing internal investigation being conducted by the Audit Committee of the Company's Board of Directors, with the assistance of outside independent counsel and a forensic accounting firm, it was determined that several employees of the Company's Pinnacle Wireless subsidiary engaged in fraudulent activities that resulted in improper revenue recognition. Since the Company's acquisition of the legacy Pinnacle business in April 2011, that business has comprised less than 10% of UniTek's consolidated revenues. The Company plans to amend its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2012, June 30, 2012 and September 29, 2012 (the amended Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 29, 2012 also will include restated consolidated financial statements for the comparative three and nine month periods ended October 1, 2011), as well as its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
