ISS Recommends Wegener Corporation (Nasdaq: WGNR) Stockholders Vote for the Re-Election of Robert Placek and Wendell Bailey to t

DULUTH, Ga., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), the nation's leading provider of voting and corporate governance services, has recommended that Wegener Corporation stockholders vote FOR the re-election of Robert A. Placek and Wendell Bailey to the Wegener board at the upcoming Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on January 31, 2006.

In a report issued January 19, 2006 that was sent to hundreds of institutional investors, mutual funds, and other fiduciaries, ISS stated, "On balance, we believe that management's nominees have the industry experience and knowledge of the company's operations to execute the company's strategic plan and benefit shareholders. Additionally, we note that both dissident nominees lack relevant industry experience, detailed knowledge of the company's operations, and significant public company board experience."

ISS also commented that, "Furthermore, the dissident nominees have not presented an alternative plan to improve the company's operations."

In reaching its conclusion, ISS stated, "Management is aware of the company's operational issues and appears to be taking steps to improve its situation." ISS went on to say, " ... we believe that shareholders are better served by Messrs. Placek's and Bailey's industry experience and knowledge of the company's operations. As such, we do not believe that replacing Messrs. Placek and Bailey with individuals with no industry experience and little public board experience is warranted."

Commenting on the ISS recommendation, Robert A. Placek, Wegener Corporation Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "ISS is widely recognized as the leading independent proxy advisory firm in the nation. We appreciate the time they dedicated to analyzing all the facts and, in the end, recommending the re-election of Wegener's board nominees."

The Wegener Corporation Annual Meeting of Stockholders is scheduled to be held on January 31, 2006. Wegener urges stockholders to return the WHITE proxy, voting FOR the Wegener nominees. Stockholders are asked to follow the voting instructions on the WHITE proxy card to ensure that their shares are represented at the Meeting. Stockholders with any questions should contact Wegener's proxy solicitor, Innisfree M&A Incorporated, toll free at 1.888.750.5834.
