LOUISVILLE, KY, April 25, 2012 — Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, Inc. (OTC BB: BEAC) (www.askbeacon.com), an emerging global leader in the design, implementation and management of high performance Information Technology Systems (“ITS”) infrastructure solutions, today announced that the Company’s senior management and directors will begin making voluntary open market purchases of the Company’s common stock at various prices; and that the Company intends to establish a formal Executive Stock Purchase Program in the near-term.
A number of the Company’s senior executives have expressed a desire to re-engage in voluntary, open market stock purchases beginning May 4, 2012, (a minimum of 48 hours after the filing of the Company’s Form 10Q for the second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012). All open market purchases will be made with personal funds at various discretionary times and prices and will have no impact on the Company’s financial statements or cash balance. These open market purchases are a continuation of previous, voluntary purchases of Beacon stock by various executives and is expected to continue in the future.
Currently, insiders of Beacon are subject to a blackout period, and prohibited from purchasing stock, due to the recent ending of the Company’s fiscal second quarter 2012 and upcoming 10Q filing with the SEC. The Company recognizes the recent volatility in its stock price and that executives and directors may voluntarily purchase shares in the open market at their discretion, subject to applicable securities laws, after the blackout period ends. Individuals may make purchases from time to time at prices of their choosing. The Company also intends to support the individual usage of an Executive Stock Purchase Program in response to management’s desire to individually acquire additional shares on a voluntary, discretionary and regular basis thereafter.
“While we’ve experienced some recent challenges, our confidence in our business model and prospects for the future remain strong,” stated Bruce Widener, CEO and Chairman of Beacon Solutions. “The executive team and board believe the Company’s market value and growth prospects are not fairly reflected in its current share price, which represents a unique opportunity for our personal investment in additional Beacon shares. We’re committed to leveraging our operational and execution expertise in the global ITS infrastructure market to maintain significant annual revenue growth, to achieve sustainable profitability, and to build long-term value for our shareholders, customers, partners and employees.”
