UniTek Global Services, Inc. Receives Commitment Letter for $75 Million
Asset-Based Revolving Credit Facility

BLUE BELL, Pa., July 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UniTek Global Services, Inc.
("UniTek" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:UNTK), a premier provider of permanently
outsourced infrastructure services to the telecommunications, broadband cable,
wireless, transportation, public safety and satellite television industries,
today announced that it has received a commitment letter from Apollo
Investment Corporation ("Apollo") for financing arrangements including an
asset-based revolving credit facility ("ABL Facility") totaling $75 million
(the "Commitment Amount"). The commitment letter contemplates that the parties
will enter into definitive documentation for the ABL Facility no later than
July 10, 2013.

Once closed, UniTek plans to use the funds available under the ABL Facility to
replace its existing Revolving Credit and Security Agreement, dated April 15,
2011. The ABL Facility is expected to increase the Company's borrowing
availability as compared to its existing revolving credit facility, providing
UniTek with greater financial flexibility as the Company continues to explore
refinancing alternatives for its outstanding indebtedness. The increase in
borrowing availability over current availability will be $30 million through
October 31, 2013, $25 million from November 1, 2013 through November 30, 2013
and $20 million thereafter.

"When finalized, this ABL Facility will provide us with additional liquidity
as we continue working on the refinancing of our outstanding debt," said Rocky
Romanella, Chief Executive Officer of UniTek. "We are progressing on a number
of fronts related to the completion of the audit and refinancing of our debt,
and this commitment letter is an important step in the overall process."

Pursuant to the commitment letter, UniTek will pay Apollo a commitment fee
equal to 4% of the total amount of the proposed ABL Facility, payable in two
equal installments due upon receipt of the commitment letter and the initial
funding of the ABL Facility.
