ModusLink Reminds Stockholders to Vote to Approve the Declassification of the Board of Directors at the Adjourned Annual Stockholder Meeting Scheduled for January 15, 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.
