a platform company dedicated to the acquisition, development, and
commercialization of new, innovative products and technologies, today

In addition, CUI's sales order backlog as of August 31^st 2012 was $14.6
million. 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.
