Optelecom, Inc. Announces Name Change to Optelecom-NKF, Inc.

Optelecom, Inc., a global leader in the video surveillance and intelligent transportation markets, today announced that it has changed its corporate name to Optelecom-NKF, Inc.
The change strengthens the Company’s corporate identity by aligning its name with its two strong brands: Optelecom and NKF electronics.
nkf_electronics.jpg“We combined two strong product lines and two sales units with little geographic overlap when we acquired NKF Electronics B.V. last month,” commented Edmund Ludwig, Optelecom-NKF’s president and CEO. “Our new name underscores our global market reach and reflects our commitment to support and enhance both well-known brands with superior customer service and a new product stream built from superior technology.”
Shares of Optelecom-NKF, Inc., will continue to trade under the ticker symbol “OPTC.”
The change of the Company’s name will not affect, in any way, the validity of currently
outstanding stock certificates, nor will it be necessary for the Company’s stockholders to
surrender or exchange any stock certificates that they currently hold as a result of the name change.
