Bulova Hires Investment Bankers March 18, 2011 - Business Wire

CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bulova Technologies Group, Inc. (Pink Sheets: BLVT) (the “Company”) today provided the following update to shareholders and other interested parties.

Bulova Technologies Group, Inc. announced that it has reached an agreement with SSG Capital Advisors, LLC to represent the Company in seeking financing to facilitate future growth. SSG Capital Advisors, LLC (www.ssgca.com) is a nationally recognized investment bank that helps middle market companies complete financial transactions.

Stephen L. Gurba, President and CEO, stated: “The success Bulova Technologies Group has enjoyed recently in winning contracts with the U.S. Government valued in excess of $500 million has created the need to generate additional 'seed money' to facilitate the initiation of performance. SSG Capital Advisors, LLC was selected to assist the Company in this endeavor because of their expertise and track record, and we are optimistic that, together, we will succeed in completing an appropriate transaction.”

The Company also announced that it would retain its shares of Growth Technologies, Inc. The Company had previously intended to distribute the shares to its shareholders.

With respect to this decision, Stephen L. Gurba advised, “The Board received the advice of tax counsel that receipt of such dividends would create a taxable event for each recipient, as well as the Company. Because of concern that this tax liability could be potentially onerous for recipients with little liquidity as the Growth Technologies shares are thinly-traded and, accordingly might not be readily sold to meet the tax liability, the Company elected to retain the Growth Technologies shares. At the appropriate time, the Company will sell its interest to provide working capital for use in its core business.”
