Virco Announces Board Reorganization

TORRANCE, Calif., May 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Virco Mfg. Corporation
(Nasdaq:VIRC) announced today that its Board of Directors has unanimously
determined to reconstitute itself into a smaller and nimbler structure. As a
result, the Board will be reduced in size to 5 members, which is expected to
save in excess of $250,000 per year. These savings are in line with the
percentage savings achieved by the Company in other areas over the past
several years.

To implement this reconfiguration, six current directors have tendered their
resignations. They were replaced by two new independent directors, Robert Lind
and Donald Rudkin, who join existing new independent director, Michael

Chairman of the Board and CEO Robert Virtue said: "We have worked diligently
through the recent recession to make changes in our organization to maintain
our position as the most trusted supplier of furniture and equipment for
education, both in America and internationally. I want to personally thank our
departing directors for their many years of service."

Mr. Virtue continued, "As we anticipate a growing recovery in the education
market, the agility of our new, leaner Board will help us capitalize on growth
opportunities. These directors bring new experience and broad strengths to our
current team and I look forward to working with them to the benefit of our
customers and stockholders."
