Court Rejects Forward Industries' Baseless Request for a Preliminary Injunction Against Terence Bernard Wise Aug 21, 2014 06:01PM

Court Refuses to Preliminarily Enjoin Wise's Campaign to Elect New Directors to Forward's Board

Wise Calls on Board to Schedule 2014 Annual General Meeting Without Delay

SAFFRON WALDEN, United Kingdom--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Terence Bernard Wise, the largest shareholder and member of the board of directors of Forward Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: FORD), a designer and distributor of custom carry and protective solutions, issued a statement today commenting on the lawsuit filed against him in federal court, which seeks to enjoin Mr. Wise's nominees from standing for election at Forward's 2014 Annual Meeting. On August 19, 2014, a U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York rejected Forward's request for a preliminary injunction and scheduled a hearing on Mr. Wise's proposed motion to dismiss the case.

"I continue to remain confident that the allegations Mr. Johnson and his supporters on the Board have leveled against me in federal court are baseless, and I applaud the Court's decision to deny their request for a preliminary injunction. I remain hopeful that this frivolous lawsuit will be speedily resolved with as little expense as possible to Forward's shareholders. I also call on the Board to desist with their stalling tactics, aimed at disenfranchising shareholders, and insist that they schedule the 2014 Annual General Meeting without delay and in any case prior to the NASDAQ deadline of September 30."

As previously disclosed, in furtherance of Mr. Johnson and his affiliates' efforts to interfere with Mr. Wise's proxy campaign, a subset of the Board caused Forward to initiate the baseless lawsuit against Mr. Wise on July 22, 2014. In the lawsuit, Forward seeks to invalidate all of Mr. Wise's nominations for the Forward board. Mr. Wise believes that this lawsuit was mounted by incumbent management at a time engineered to be most prejudicial to Mr. Wise's legitimate proxy campaign and with the improper purpose of denying Forward's shareholders their democratic right to decide who they want to run their company. Mr. Wise urges all shareholders to remain vigilant of these repeated efforts by Mr. Johnson and his affiliates to entrench their control of Forward.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Terence Bernard Wise, together with the other participants named herein, intends to file a preliminary proxy statement and accompanying proxy card with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to be used to solicit votes for the election of his director nominees at the 2014 annual meeting of stockholders of Forward Industries, Inc.

Computer Cable Store™ Releases a Range of Networx™ Cat5e Patch Panels Aug 21, 2014 06:01PM

Quakertown, PA (PRWEB) August 21, 2014

Many online market storefronts have added new products to the stock after the initial quarters. At a recent conference, Computercablestore™ announced the release of a segment of Networx™ Cat5e Patch Panels.

"Though the main emphasis of Computer Cable Store™ is on bulk and computer cables, the company recently decided to stock the accessories which the customers usually require along with them," said George McDowell, marketing executive with Computer Cable Store™. "For this very reason, Computer Cable Store™ is stocking Cat5e Patch Panels from this quarter. These are one of the main accessories which the customers look for, after purchasing the Cat5e cables. Computer Cable Store™ wants to become a go to store for all the cabling needs."

On being inquired as to what the function of these patch panels was, George McDowell said, "In most scenarios, where the customers buy cables in bulk, they are trying to setup a network for their SOHO or other networking offices. The basic structure of Networx™ Cat5e Patch Panels consists of a plate with identical connectors on one face and ports that connect to a switch on the other." George McDowell further explained, "The users can thus control a large number of outputs via just one switch. There is a huge possibility of interconnecting networks or making the whole setup more flexible and thus error free."

The members of the conference asked about the ease of use of the device. Jeramie Cavanaugh, product manager with Computer Cable Store™ explained, "At first, it does sound complicated. But the customers can relax. Once a technician finishes the initial connections, the professional will relay the basic instructions on operating the Cat5e Patch Panel. After a few hands-on sessions, it will become easier to operate for the customer.

One of the attendees familiar with the Computer Cable Store™ storefront asked as to the variability offered by Computer Cable Store™, regarding the Networx™ Cat5e Patch Panel. Jeramie Cavanaugh explained, "As with most of the storefront, the Networx™ Cat5e Patch Panel also comes in different makes. Depending on the complexity of their cabling requirement, the customer can opt for either 16 ports, 24 ports or 48 ports. This gives the customers the freedom to buy according to the need.

Computer Cable Store™ also added that other types of patch panels will also be introduced depending on the success of the Networx™ Cat5e Patch Panels. George McDowell stated, "Buying from Computer Cable Store™ is hassle free as it has stringent consumer protection in place. Also, the Cat5 Patch Panel has undergone stringent security checks and passed the universal standards of durability and safety."
