Prestige Telecom asks for an extension of the time for calling its annual general meeting

MONTREAL, Sept. 23, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Prestige Telecom Inc. ("Prestige" or the "Company") (TSXV: PR), a leader in providing engineering, materials furnishing, installation and support services (commonly referred to as EF&I services), as well as technical and aerial services to the Canadian communications and broadcast industries announces today that it has filed with the Quebec Superior Court an application for an order extending the time for calling its annual general meeting of shareholders. Prestige is required to call its annual general meeting by September 30, 2011 although corporate laws governing Prestige provide for the ability to apply for an extension of this deadline. The calling of a meeting at this point in time would not constitute the best use of the Company's management time and financial resources as it works towards furthering its strategic review process. A copy of the application will be filed on SEDAR and will therefore be available to the public by accessing the Company's profile at www.sedar.com. The Company will advise as to the outcome of the application in due course."
