HOUSTON, May 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. ("CUI Global" or the "Company") announced today it will change its name to Orbital Energy Group, Inc. ("Orbital Energy"), effective immediately. The new name reflects the Company's strategic repositioning to become a diversified energy infrastructure services company. Orbital Energy's common shares will continue to be listed for trading on the Nasdaq under the new ticker symbol 'OEG' beginning at market opening on Monday, May 11, 2020. In conjunction with the name change, the Company will be launching a new corporate website at www.orbitalenergygroup.com.
The name change follows the Company's platform acquisition of Reach Construction Group ("Reach"), completed on April 1, 2020. Headquartered in Apex, NC, Reach is an engineering, procurement and construction ("EPC") company with expertise in the renewable energy industry. The Company believes the name Orbital Energy Group more accurately depicts its extensive capabilities and innovative products, evolving business and new brand – a brand that provides a wide range of energy infrastructure solutions.
"We are excited to change our name to Orbital Energy Group as part of our company-wide transformation," said Jim O'Neil, vice chairman and CEO of Orbital Energy. "This rebranding marks a key milestone as we leverage our engineering and construction capabilities, including those of our recently internally developed Orbital Power Services group, to deploy a broader set of service offerings in the energy infrastructure market. With our recent acquisition of Reach, we have also extended our energy services business into the rapidly growing areas of alternative and renewable energy, enabling us to take an active role in reducing our nation's carbon footprint. With our increased capabilities, over time we expect to diversify into synergistic services and to expand geographically to serve the electric power industry, as well as the larger infrastructure services market."
In connection with the name and ticker symbol change, the Company's common shares have been assigned a new CUSIP number of 68559A 109.
The Company is also launching a new website and social channels that are a better reflection of its energy and infrastructure services platform, providing users with a more engaging experience on desktop and mobile devices. The website will continue to evolve with new content and functionality being added over time, including specific links to our new subsidiaries and new "green" technologies. The new website will be www.orbitalenergygroup.com.
