Volt Information Sciences Announces Review of Strategic Alternatives


Volt Information Sciences, Inc. ("Volt" or "the Company")
announces today that the Company is fully
engaged in a process to evaluate potential strategic alternatives to
maximize shareholder value. Such strategic alternatives could include a
sale of the Company or a sale of a division or divisions thereof, a
strategic merger, a business combination or continuing as a standalone
company executing on its business plan. The Company has engaged Houlihan
Lokey Capital, Inc. as financial advisor and Milbank, Tweed, Hadley &
McCloy LLP as legal advisor to assist in its review.

Dana Messina, Chairman of the Board, said, "We remain confident in our
ability to execute on our business plan and in the growth opportunities
available to us. At the same time, the Board believes it is in the best
interest of shareholders to conduct a thorough evaluation of strategic
opportunities that could accelerate value recognition or unlock
additional value."

The Board and the Company have not set a definitive timetable for
completion of their review of strategic alternatives, nor has any
decision related to any particular strategic alternative been made, and
there can be no assurance that the process will result in any
transaction being announced or completed in the future. The Company does
not intend to make any further announcements related to its review
unless and until its Board of Directors has approved a specific
transaction or otherwise determined that further disclosure is
appropriate. As always, the Company will continue to dedicate its
resources to generating business, delivering superior customer service
and supporting the development of our employees.
