MCSi Announces Extension of Forbearance Agreement with Lender Group.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

DAYTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2003

MCSi, Inc. announced today that the lenders under its secured credit facility have agreed to extend their forbearance agreement until May 30, 2003, as they continue to work with MCSi to develop a longer term restructuring plan. MCSi cannot assure that it will be successful in developing such a restructuring plan on acceptable terms. If unsuccessful, following expiration of the forbearance period, the lenders will be entitled to exercise certain remedies, including an acceleration of all amounts due under the credit facility, as a result of certain defaults under the credit agreement.

Gordon Strickland, MCSi's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are making progress in developing a long-term restructuring plan with our lenders, as we work to rebuild the confidence of our customers and suppliers and execute our restructuring initiatives. This extension of the forbearance period, we believe, indicates our lenders' confidence that we will be successful in our efforts."

Separately, MCSi announced the completion of the investigation conducted by special counsel regarding certain allegations relating to the Company and certain former members of senior management. MCSi's new management and audit committee are continuing to investigate these and other allegations relating to the Company's financial reporting. Until this additional investigation is completed, investors should not rely on MCSi's historical financial information, including the unaudited information included in MCSi's press release dated February 26, 2003 and filed on a Current Report on Form 8-K dated such date and the other 2002 quarterly and other financial information included in MCSi's reports filed with the SEC. MCSi continues to cooperate with the pending SEC investigation, as previously disclosed.
