TSR, Inc. Rejects Offer from Stockholder to Buy All Outstanding Shares

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TSR, Inc. (Nasdaq:TSRI), a provider of computer programming consulting
services (“TSR” or the “Company”), announced today that it sent a letter
on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) to
Robert Fitzgerald, president of stockholder QAR Industries, Inc.
(“QAR”), rejecting QAR’s non-binding offer contained in its letter,
dated November 14, 2018, to acquire all of the common stock of the
Company not already owned by QAR for $6.25 per share. Based on Amendment
No. 2 to QAR’s Schedule 13D, filed on November 20, 2018, Mr. Fitzgerald
and QAR (together, the “QAR Entities”) own a total of 139,869 shares of
the Company’s common stock, par value $.01 per share (“Common Stock”),
which represents approximately 7.1% of the Company’s issued and
outstanding Common Stock.

In its letter to QAR, dated November 27, 2018, the Company stated that
after careful consideration of your letter and the non-binding offer
contained therein and in accordance with the unanimous recommendation of
the Special Committee of the Board (the “Special Committee”), after
consultation with the Special Committee’s financial advisors and the
Special Committee’s and the Company’s legal advisors, the Board has
unanimously rejected your offer to acquire the outstanding common stock
of the Company not owned by the Investors (as defined in your letter)
for $6.25 per share. The Board and the Special Committee believe that
the consideration being offered by QAR is inadequate and does not
reflect the fair value of the Common Stock of the Company and,
therefore, would not be in the best interests of the Company’s
stockholders.” The Company also stated that should QAR “wish to
communicate further with respect to its interest in the Company, it will
make the Chairman of the Special Committee and the financial advisors to
the Special Committee available to QAR or its representatives.”

Christopher Hughes, President of the Company, said “The Board of
Directors is committed to maximizing value for the benefit of all
stockholders by continuing to focus on the Company’s business while, at
the same time, exploring strategic alternatives through the Special
Committee process. The Company remains dedicated to meeting the needs of
its customers and business partners.”
