UniTek Global Services Announces Pricing of Public Offering of Its Common Stock and Commencement of Trading on the NASDAQ Global Market

BLUE BELL, PA--(Marketwire - November 11, 2010) - UniTek Global Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNTK) ("UniTek" or the "Company") today announced the pricing of its public offering of 19,000,000 shares of its common stock at a price to the public of $4.75 per share. The underwriters in the offering have a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 2,850,000 shares of common stock from the Company, on the same terms and conditions, to cover over-allotments, if any. All share amounts offered reflect a one-for-28 reverse split of the common stock completed in conjunction with the pricing of the offering.

The Company's common stock begins trading on November 11, 2010 on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol "UNTK."

The net proceeds of the offering to the Company, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, will be approximately $82.6 million. The Company expects to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay approximately $61.9 million of indebtedness, with the remaining net proceeds to be used for general corporate purposes, including for working capital to support the execution of the Company's backlog. If the underwriters' over-allotment option is exercised, the Company expects to use the net proceeds, which would be approximately $12.6 million if the over-allotment option is exercised in full, to repay an equal amount of indebtedness.

FBR Capital Markets & Co. and ROTH Capital Partners, LLC acted as joint book-running managers, and D.A. Davidson & Co. and Janney Montgomery Scott LLC acted as co-managers of the offering.
