Fourth Consecutive Inclusion in the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100

WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 4, 2012-- For the fourth year in a row, ModusLink Global Solutions™, Inc. (NASDAQ: MLNK) has been recognized in the annual Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100. The honor is based on the Company's role as a supply chain outsourcing provider to a global mobile communications leader. This year's award focuses on transformative projects in the supply chain and ModusLink's inclusion serves as recognition of the Company's specific accomplishments in the transformation of the final packaging and fulfillment of phones and accessories, spare parts management and e-commerce integration.

"Mobile communications is one of the fastest-growing industries worldwide, which results in a unique and complex set of supply chain challenges," said Thomas Nightingale, president of sales and marketing for ModusLink. "ModusLink has more than 30 years of experience providing innovative supply chain solutions to the technology sector, creating a strong foundation for us to support the mobile communications space. We are delighted with our fourth consecutive inclusion in the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100. We believe our ability to tackle the varied aspects of our clients' value chain operations is unmatched and we're honored to work alongside our global client base."

ModusLink was selected for the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 based on its successful collaboration with a leading mobile communications provider. Before working with ModusLink, the client struggled with managing multiple suppliers, high packaging costs and an inability to accurately forecast customer demand. ModusLink has helped implement a flexible and responsive supply chain, improved packaging options and process efficiencies resulting in significant cost savings and increased customer satisfaction.
