TUALATIN, Ore. , Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120320/FL72629LOGO ) For the six months ended June 30, 2012, CUI Global produced consolidated total revenues of $18,481,521. The numbers demonstrate that gross revenues for the Second Quarter ($10,011,758) grew more than 18% sequentially from First Quarter revenues ($8,469,763). The company's backlog of customer orders, as of June 30, 2012, are at historic highs of approximately $12,200,000, up more than a million dollars over the same period last year and approximately $1,500,000 from the end of First Quarter. As of June 30, 2012 CUI Global had on hand $3,190,773 million of cash and cash equivalents. William Clough, CUI Global's president and CEO, commented: "We continue to be very encouraged with these results. The sequential growth in revenue and the dramatic increase in customer back orders, coupled with the reduction of losses demonstrate the effectiveness of our product line expansion, technology developments, and our strategic decision to build out engineering support and infrastructure to accommodate our present and future growth." "It is also important to note that these results still do not reflect any significant impact from our latest technologies," said Clough. "While we have signed some very valuable Distribution Agreements and begun several important field tests with what could be very large customers, such as TransCanada in North America, our Vergence™ GasPT2 device has yet to significantly impact our revenues. Moreover, our Solus™ Power Topology is not scheduled for introduction into the marketplace until later this year and into 2013." "We are increasingly confident that the initiatives we have implemented will continue to produce positive results in revenue growth and achieving profitability. We continue to be squarely focused on increasing shareholder value," Clough concluded. About CUI Global, Inc. Delivering Innovative Technologies for an Interconnected World . . . . .
