BILLERICA, Mass., July 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSP Inc.

On behalf of the entire organization, I also would like to extend our thanks to Chris Hall, who recently left the board, and to Bob Williams and David Lyons, who both will be retiring in February after serving more than 15 years. We have greatly benefitted from their counsel."
