Concerned Stockholders Of Surge Components, Inc. Shocked And Disappointed By Decision To Delay The Annual Meeting

The Concerned Stockholders of Surge Components, Inc., long-term stockholders of Surge Components, Inc. (OTCPK: SPRS) ("Surge") who beneficially own approximately 22% of Surge, today commented on the decision by Surge's Board of Directors (the "Board") to delay Surge's upcoming annual meeting. The meeting, which was originally scheduled for November 22, 2016, has been delayed over a month to January 5, 2017.

"We are shocked and disappointed by Surge delaying the annual meeting," said Michael Tofias, one of the Concerned Stockholders. "We believe that this is another in a long line of actions that are contrary to the best interests of stockholders. We strongly question why the Board is working so hard to keep us out of the boardroom instead of partnering with us to build stockholder value."

"The decisions by the Board in the few months since Mike and I announced that we would bring stockholders a choice at the annual meeting are frightening," said Bradley Rexroad, one of the Concerned Stockholders. "In that time, the Board has adopted a poison pill, impeded our ability to communicate with our fellow stockholders at every turn, and now has delayed the annual meeting."

The Concerned Stockholders call on the Board to stop wasting Surge's and stockholders' precious resources and hold the annual meeting as scheduled on November 22, 2016. There is no need for a delay of the meeting. Any claim by Surge that the Concerned Stockholders requested a delay of the annual meeting is misleading. The Concerned Stockholders stand ready and willing to proceed with the annual meeting on November 22, 2016, as scheduled.

"The actions and statements by the Board stand in stark contrast to each other," continued Mr. Tofias. "The Board claims that we are wasting resources. But by delaying the annual meeting, they have ensured weeks of additional time and expense before stockholders can make their choice as to their representatives on the Board. We do not believe that these are the actions of a Board and management team that are focused on building stockholder value."

Mr. Rexroad continued, "Make no mistake: these latest actions have hardened our resolve to bring change at Surge. We believe that there must be an end to Surge's poor governance."

The Concerned Stockholders remind their fellow stockholders to vote the WHITE proxy card to bring about needed change at Surge.
