BLUE BELL, Pa., Nov. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UniTek Global Services, Inc. ("UniTek" or the "Company") (OTC:UNTK), a premier provider of permanently outsourced infrastructure services to the telecommunications, broadband cable, wireless, transportation, public safety and satellite television industries, announced today that it has received court approval of its First-Day Motions (the "Motions") at a hearing in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Court"). The approval of the Motions by the Bankruptcy Court completes an important step toward implementation of the previously announced prepackaged Chapter 11 Plan, which received unanimous support of the Company's lenders. It will help to ensure that UniTek's operations will continue smoothly and that it will be business as usual. The Company is now scheduled for a hearing in early December to approve its Restructuring Plan and to set an expedited schedule for the Company's emergence from Chapter 11.

In addition, the Company has received interim approval for post-petition financing, which will provide financing for working capital and for general corporate purposes.

"We are pleased with the Court's prompt approval of our Motions," said Rocky Romanella, UniTek's Chief Executive Officer. "The Court's action ensures that we will be able to maintain regular operations, while meeting our obligations to our suppliers and serving our customers as we work to realign our capital structure as expeditiously as possible."
