Presstek Receives New Revolving Credit Facility, Completes Sale of its Lasertel Subsidiary

“The sale to SELEX places Lasertel into a large organization whose core business is closely aligned with Lasertel’s mission,” commented Jacobson. “At the same time, it allows Presstek to focus on our core business. While selling Lasertel has been a key objective during the past year, we needed to ensure that we received an appropriate value for Lasertel. We are pleased that we are able to accomplish that objective with this sale.”

“Today we have announced the completion of two critical milestones in driving Presstek forward. The closings of the Lasertel sale and the new credit facility represent major steps toward clearing the way for Presstek to fulfill its strategic goals,” added Jacobson. “These types of activities can take an enormous amount of time and effort to complete. We look forward to the opportunity to increase, even more, our focus on driving our strategy and delivering our message to the market.”
