Along with the above financial accomplishments, the company claimed several other significant milestones in FY 2012, including: Completion of $13.5 million (net to the company) equity raise; Successful up-listing to the Nasdaq Capital Market; Retirement/termination of $8.1 million in short and long-term debt; Listing on the Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index; Listing on the Russell® Microcap Index; Inclusion in the MSCI Global Microcap Indices; Negotiation and signing of additional distribution relationship with Future Electronics; Certification of the Vergence® GasPT2 Metering Device by Italian, Polish, UK, and Canadian authorities, along with the first substantial purchase order from its North American Distributor, EMC; and more.

William Clough, president & chief executive officer, stated, "These financial results and the other accomplishments we achieved in 2012 continue to demonstrate the effectiveness of our initiatives, including an enhanced sales channel, the elimination of significant debt, and the continued introduction and commercialization of our new products, including products based upon CUI Global's proprietary technologies."

"As our Vergence® Technology; our Novum® Digital Point-of-Load Technology; and our Solus® Technology come to market this year, coupled with the significant reduction in debt we accomplished in 2012, should both combine to put us in a position to see significant growth in revenue. Our up-listing to the Nasdaq Capital Market in 2012, which has significantly broadened our shareholder base, should also enhance our ability to increase shareholder value in 2013," Clough concluded.
