Optical Cable Changes Nasdaq Symbol

ROANOKE, Va. — Optical Cable Corporation (Nasdaq: OCCF) (“OCC®”) today announced that it will change its Nasdaq stock ticker symbol to “OCC” from “OCCF.” The new “OCC” ticker symbol will go into effect at the start of trading on March 31, 2011.

The new ticker symbol is aligned with the Company's branding, as Optical Cable Corporation is known throughout the industry and to its customers as “OCC.” The Company first built its strong reputation among customers and end-users as a manufacturer and provider of top-tier fiber optic cable products. Through strategic acquisitions, OCC has positioned itself as a manufacturer and provider of a full line of top-tier fiber optic and copper data communications cabling and connectivity products. OCC acquired Superior Modular Products Incorporated, doing business as SMP Data Communications, in May 2008, and Applied Optical Systems, Inc. in October 2009.

OCC's product offering now includes a comprehensive suite of fiber optic and copper data communications cabling and connectivity solutions, and integrated system solutions primarily for the enterprise market, including designs for uses ranging from commercial, enterprise network, datacenter, residential and campus installations to customized products for specialty applications and harsh environments, including military, industrial, mining and broadcast applications.

OCC is celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Company's listing and trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market. OCC was founded in 1983 and began trading on Nasdaq in March 1996.

Neil Wilkin, President and Chief Executive Officer of OCC®, said, “We are pleased to announce our ticker change which reflects that OCC is much more than a fiber optic cable company. Our new ticker symbol is aligned with the OCC brand and encompasses the expanded offering of fiber optic and copper cabling and connectivity products we now manufacture and provide. We look forward to building on OCC's strong reputation and industry position by continuing to execute our strategic plan to meet the full range of our customers' needs while creating value for our shareholders.”
