Sunrise Telecom Announces Availability of Proxy Statement for 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and First Quarter 2013 Financials

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sunrise Telecom Incorporated (OTC:SRTI) announced today that the proxy statement for its 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be mailed out to stockholders on Friday, June 14, 2013. The proxy statement is also available on the Company's website at As previously announced, stockholders are being asked, among other matters, to vote on the planned sale of substantially all of the operating assets of Sunrise Telecom to VeEX Inc. The proxy statement provides additional details regarding the sale.

In addition, Sunrise also announced today that following the anticipated close of the sale of the Company's assets to VeEX, the Company intends to sell or otherwise monetize its remaining assets in an orderly manner, pay or make arrangements for payment of its liabilities and expenses, close its worldwide legal entities, and distribute the net proceeds of its asset sales to its stockholders. However, no determination has been made by the Board in regards to the means by which proceeds will be distributed to its stockholders. The final distribution values are still to be determined based on a variety of factors, including the satisfaction of lease and other facility obligations, employee severance and other employee related obligations, legal and professional services fees, wind-down costs and other related expenses. The company estimates the range of values for the distribution to stockholders will be between $0.17 and $0.23 per share in the next six to eighteen months.
