TUALATIN, Ore., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI), a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, CUI, Inc., a provider of electromechanical components, posted the second consecutive month of record bookings equaling $5,382,219 in new sales orders during August 2012.

This represents a $5.4 million increase from the $9.2 million sales order backlog at December 31, 2011, a percentage increase of 58%. These two figures (monthly bookings & sales backorders) also represent record historical performance for CUI, eclipsing all previous monthly totals during the company's almost 23-year history. "Combining this record sales month in August with the record sales last month results in more than $10,000,000 in new sales orders for the first two months of this Third Quarter," commented CUI Global's president & CEO, William Clough. "While these performance numbers still reflect no substantial revenues from our Vergence ®, Novum ®, or Solus ® Technologies, the numbers do evidence CUI's ability to close OEM business, a continuing trend which we are confident will lead to a growth year for FY 2012," Clough concluded.
