LGL Continues the Evaluation of a Non-Binding Acquisition Proposal; Announces Pending Expiration of Its Warrants August 6, 2018

Share:

The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE:LGL) (the "Company"), a globally
diversified holding company with a history of operations dating back to
1914, today announces that management and its board of directors
("Board") continue the evaluation of a non-binding proposal from an
investment group to acquire for cash the assets of its two principal
operating subsidiaries, M-tron Industries, Inc. ("Mtron") and Precise
Time and Frequency, LLC ("PTF," and together with Mtron, "MtronPTF").

The Board, in consultation with its legal and financial advisors, is
carefully reviewing and evaluating the proposal. The Company cautions
shareholders and others considering trading in the Company's securities
that while the proposal submitted by the investment group is actively
under consideration by the Board, no decisions have yet been made by the
Board with respect to the proposal. There can be no assurance as to
whether a definitive agreement will be executed, the terms thereof, or
that any transaction governed thereby will be approved by the Board,
consummated, or if consummated, as to the timing thereof.

If a definitive agreement with respect to the proposed purchase of the
Company's MtronPTF assets is executed and consummated, the Company will
have disposed of its principal operating businesses, leaving it
remaining assets comprised primarily of cash and other liquid
investments. The Company estimates its unaudited pro-forma net cash and
investments, after closing of the proposed deal, to be approximately $32
million ($6.75 - $6.80 per share), after taxes and based on the proposed
terms contained in the non-binding proposal. Our tangible book value as
of Q1 2018 was approximately $5.20 per share.

The Company previously reported revenues of $5.9 million for Q1 2018
versus $5.6 million for Q1 2017 and ended Q1 2018 with order backlog of
$13.3 million versus $10.9 million at the end of Q1 2017. Executive
Chairman and CEO, Michael J. Ferrantino, Sr., stated "our results
confirm that the strategy we put in place just over three years ago is
working, with increases in new orders and strong backlog leading to the
improvement in shipments."

If a deal is ultimately concluded, the Company's Board may decide to
pursue other strategic alternatives with the transaction proceeds and
its balance of cash and investments, which may take the form of
potential business acquisitions or combination opportunities. The
Company is unable to project in any manner the course of action to be
pursued in such circumstances and whether such opportunities will be
available; even if such opportunities are available and successfully
pursued, the Company thereafter will be subject to future risks and
uncertainties associated with such opportunities which are unknown at
this time.

Marc Gabelli, the Company's Non-executive Chairman, stated "We will
continue to seek value creation opportunities on behalf of our
shareholders, and will be judicious in our pursuit to increase
shareholder value."

Pending Expiration of Warrants

The Company's 12,981,025 warrants, representing the potential purchase
of 519,241 common shares with a strike price of $7.50 per share, are set
