UniTek Global Services, Inc. Appoints Grant Thornton As New Independent Auditor

BLUE BELL, Pa., Sept. 17, 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 that the Audit Committee of the Company's Board of Directors has approved the appointment of Grant Thornton LLP ("Grant Thornton") as its independent registered public accounting firm, effective September 16, 2013. Grant Thornton will perform independent audit services for the Company beginning with the three-month period ended March 31, 2013.

Ernst & Young LLP, the Company's previous independent registered public accounting firm, has agreed to work with Grant Thornton to facilitate an orderly transition.

"Since the filing of our 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K last month, we have been focused on the completion of our financial statements for the first and second quarters of 2013 in addition to growing our business through exceptional service and innovative solutions," said Andrew Herning, Chief Financial Officer of UniTek. "The appointment of Grant Thornton reaffirms our commitment to providing our shareholders with the highest level of transparency in our financial reporting. Upholding this high standard is especially important as we focus on delivering a strong finish to the year."

Rocky Romanella, Chief Executive Officer of UniTek, added, "We have a tremendously dedicated team of enthusiastic and energetic staff who have been keenly focused on winning new business to support our future growth and success. Recently, our in-building wireless product, or Distributed Antenna System (DAS), was selected for installation in an existing premier office complex in Manhattan. This is an important win for us, and we anticipate future expansion in this area as we leverage the top-level talent of our crews, our state-of-the-art staging facility and expert project management capabilities to replicate these types of fully-integrated customer solutions for other DAS implementations across the country."
