(TSX:DD) ("DDS Wireless" or the "Company"), a world leader in providing wireless data solutions for fleet management, which it has been providing for more than 26 years, is pleased to announce that it has received shareholder approval for its previously announced going-private transaction (the "Transaction"). Pursuant to the Transaction, 0998556 B.C. Ltd. (the "Purchaser"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ghai Investments Ltd. ("GIL"), a private company controlled by Vari Ghai, the Chief Executive Officer and a director of the Company, will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") that the Purchaser and its affiliates do not already own for cash consideration of $2.25 per Common Share (the "Consideration") by way of a plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). Pursuant to the Arrangement, all of the outstanding options of the Company ("Options") will be cancelled and option holders of such cancelled Options that have an exercise price that is less than the Consideration will receive a cash amount equal to the amount by which the Consideration exceeds the exercise price.

Approval of the Transaction was given at a special meeting of the Company's shareholders held on June 23, 2014 (the "Meeting"). At the Meeting, (i) approximately 98.85% of the votes cast by the holders of Common Shares, and (ii) approximately 95.52% of the votes cast by holders of Common Shares excluding the Purchaser and its affiliates were voted in favour of the Arrangement. The completion of the Arrangement is subject to the final approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia and the satisfaction of certain other closing conditions customary in a transaction of this nature. The Company is currently scheduled to return to court on June 26, 2014 to seek a final order to implement the Arrangement. Assuming that these conditions are satisfied, it is expected that the closing of the Arrangement will be completed on June 27, 2014.
