SHANGHAI, China, March 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Montage Technology Group Limited (Nasdaq:MONT) ("Montage" or the "Company"), a global fabless provider of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions addressing the home entertainment and cloud computing markets, today announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") intends to evaluate strategic alternatives, including a possible sale of the Company, in order to increase shareholder value. The Board has retained Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated ("Stifel") as its financial advisor, and O'Melveny & Myers LLP as its legal counsel, with respect to its evaluation of strategic alternatives, including without limitation the previously announced unsolicited preliminary non-binding proposal made by Shanghai Pudong Science and Technology Investment Co., Ltd.

The Board is continuing its review and evaluation of the PDSTI Proposal. No decision has been made with respect to the Company's response to the PDSTI Proposal. There is no assurance that any definitive agreement will be executed on these or other terms or at all or that this or any other transaction will be approved by the Board or consummated. There is no timetable for the review, and the Board does not intend or undertake any obligation to provide any comment on or updates with respect to the evaluation of strategic alternatives, except if a specific transaction is recommended by the Board, if the process is concluded, or as required under applicable law.
