LGL Response to the Possible Impact of Events Affecting Japan

/ Source: GlobeNewswire

ORLANDO, Fla., March 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE Amex:LGL) (the "Company"), "extends heartfelt sympathy and deepest condolences to the people who have suffered from the effects of the Tohoku Pacific Earthquake and sincerely hopes for their quick recovery," according to LGL President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Anderson.

"The LGL Group and its subsidiary, MtronPTI, do not have manufacturing operations in Japan, but we are highly dependent on parts and materials manufactured in Japan. Our ability to manufacture and deliver products on a timely basis may be affected both directly, with respect to delays in the manufacturing of raw material components needed for our production processes, and indirectly with respect to disruptions in the supply chain of content required for the manufacturing and delivery of subsystems into which our products are incorporated," Mr. Anderson said.

"Throughout the past week we have been in active communication with each of our suppliers and partners who are either based in Japan or have raw materials sourced from Japan to determine the long-term impacts on the supply of materials necessary for our production processes. Our initial assessment is that there was minimal direct impact to our specific source factories. However all are subject to utility and transportation disruptions and the situation remains fluid," according to Mr. Anderson.

"The Company continues to evaluate the rapidly evolving situation to understand the effects, if any, this disaster may have on our supply chain and our business for both the immediate and near-term timeframes. We are continuing to analyze how this situation may adversely affect pricing, lead times and customer order patterns in the future. We are also analyzing our options and contingency plans to ensure continuity of supply. 

"Our management team remains vigilant to proactively address any issues as they arise. We will continue to monitor the situation and post updates to our website at as more information becomes available," Mr. Anderson said.
