Nu Horizons Electronics Named Most Preferred International Distributor in China; Company Awarded First Time Recognition by ESM China National Survey.

MELVILLE, N.Y. & SINGAPORE -- Nu Horizons Electronics Asia Pte Ltd, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Nu Horizons Electronics Corp. (NASDAQ:NUHC), a leading distributor of advanced technology semiconductor, display and system solutions; has been ranked for the first time as one of the top five "Most Preferred International Distributors" in China in a nation-wide survey conducted to customers annually by Electronics Supply & Manufacturing China (ESMC) magazine.

ESMC conducted a series of surveys to purchasing professionals within a range of industries, including consumer electronics, communications and various industrial segments, analyzing the preference and selection processes of Mainland electronic product manufacturers. A total of 810 Chinese purchasing executives were interviewed to evaluate distributors in several areas: technical and design support, logistics, company credibility, inventory availability, product price, product quality, financial stability, responsiveness and e-commerce readiness and capabilities.

Nu Horizons Asia was selected among the "Most Preferred International Distributors" on the basis of its strong demand creation capabilities, technical knowledge, RoHS compliance rollout and web, communication and power management expertise. The company's ongoing expansion plans and growing portfolio of leading suppliers continues to enhance Nu Horizons' exposure and reputation in the Asia Pacific region.

"For over five years, Nu Horizons has invested heavily in the Asia Pacific region, developing our own brand of local design and logistics service. We are very encouraged to see our hard work and commitment to China recognised by the industry in receiving this first time award from ESMC," states Wendell Boyd, president Nu Horizons Electronics Pte Ltd. "Nu Horizons is now established in 17 locations throughout Asia Pacific, including seven locations in China. We have doubled our Chinese Sales and Engineering team in less then 12 months and have no intention of halting our efforts. We plan to forge ahead with relentless expansion throughout the territory, and concurrently develop programs that differentiate us from our competition. We anticipate doubling our presence in China within the next two years."

Mr. Boyd concludes, "Nu Horizons is uniquely positioned in the Asian market with our focused active component line card, technical sales team and one truly operational global platform. We continue to witness the development of local customers throughout Asia Pacific who require a myriad of needs transcending across multiple regions. Nu Horizons is able to satisfy our customers design requirements and uncover the most technologically effective design/manufacturing solutions to meet their time-to-market needs."
