TUALATIN, Ore., Oct. 16, 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 record bookings for this quarter of
$13,721,715 in new sales orders during third quarter 2012. These bookings
represent a $4,615,146 or 51% increase in new sales orders from third quarter


In addition, CUI's sales order backlog as of September 30, 2012 was $14.7
million. This represents a $5.6 million increase from the $9.1 million sales
order backlog at the end of third quarter 2011, an increase of 61%, reflecting
the continued strength of the company's product offering and sales efforts.

"While these numbers still do not reflect any substantial revenues from our
Vergence®, Novum®, and/or Solus® Technologies, this year-over-year growth does
represent dramatic evidence of CUI's ability to close OEM business," explained
CUI Global's president &CEO, William Clough.

"We believe that the trend represented by these third quarter numbers, coupled
with fourth quarter purchase orders for our GasPT2 Natural Gas Metering
Device, will lead to a growth year for FY 2012." Clough concluded.
