WALTHAM, Mass. -- January 8, 2014

ModusLink Global Solutions™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNK) reminds stockholders that the
2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders will reconvene on January 15, 2014 for the
purposes of voting on Proposal 2, the Declassification of the Board of
Directors.

ModusLink Global Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) held its 2013 Annual Meeting
of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) on December 18, 2013. The proposals
considered at the Annual Meeting are described in detail in the Company’s
definitive proxy statement for the Annual Meeting as filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 29, 2013.

At the Annual Meeting, the Company’s stockholders voted on and approved the
following proposals found in the Proxy Statement: (i)Proposal No.1 elect
Anthony Bergamo as a Class II Director and (ii)Proposal No.3 to approve, on
an advisory basis, the compensation paid to the Company’s named executive
officers as reported in the Proxy Statement. The results of the voting on
these proposals are described in more detail in the Company’s Current Report
on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on December 18, 2013.

The Company adjourned the Annual Meeting to allow for additional time for
stockholders to vote on Proposal 2, amendment of the Company’s Restated
Certificate of Incorporation to declassify the Board of Directors. Proposal 2
would eliminate the classification of the Board and provide instead for the
annual election of Directors commencing with the Company’s 2014 annual meeting
of stockholders. Under the Company’s By-laws, this proposal requires the
affirmative vote of 75% of shares outstanding. Accordingly all stockholder
votes are very important.

The Company and its Board of Directors believe that the declassification of
the Board of Directors represents good corporate governance and is in the best
interests of the Company and its stockholders. The Company urges stockholders
to vote “FOR” Proposal No.2 at the adjourned Annual Meeting when it is
reconvened on January 15, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at the offices of Olshan Frome
Wolosky LLP, located at 65 East 55th Street, New York, NY 10022.

The following important factors and uncertainties, among others, could cause
actual results to differ materially from those described in these
forward-looking statements: the Company’s ability to execute on its business

and revenue, lower its costs, improve its gross margins, reach and sustain
profitability, reach its long-term objectives and operate optimally;
uncertainties and volatility relating to global economic conditions,

potential strains on managerial and operational resources resulting from
expanded operations; failure to realize expected benefits of restructuring and

Company’s business strategy; insufficient cash balances that could prevent the
Company from meeting business or investment goals; difficulties integrating
technologies, operations and personnel in accordance with the Company’s
business strategy; customer losses; demand variability in supply chain
management clients, to which the Company sells on a purchase order basis
rather than pursuant to contracts with minimum purchase requirements; risks
inherent with conducting international operations; changes in tax rates in
jurisdictions where profits are determined to be earned and taxed; changes in
estimates of tax credits, benefits and deductions; unfavorable resolution of
issues arising from tax audits with various tax authorities, including payment
of interest and penalties and the ability to realize deferred tax assets;
adverse conditions in the mergers and acquisitions or IPO markets, which could
prevent liquidity for securities in the Company’s venture capital portfolio;
and increased competition and technological changes in the markets in which
the Company competes. For a detailed discussion of cautionary statements that
may affect the Company’s future results of operations and financial results,
