Proxy Governance Joins ISS, Glass Lewis and Egan Jones in Recommending Arrow International Shareholders Vote to Approve the $45.50 Per Share Merger With Teleflex

READING, Pa., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Arrow International, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARRO) today reported that Proxy Governance, Inc. a leading independent proxy voting advisory firm, has advised its clients to vote to approve Arrow's planned $45.50 merger with Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) and for the re-election of Arrow's current Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting of Arrow shareholders on September 20, 2007.

Proxy Governance is the fourth proxy advisory firm to recommend a vote for the merger agreement. On September 7, as previously reported, Glass, Lewis & Co. recommended that Arrow shareholders vote to approve the merger agreement with Teleflex and for the election of all of the Arrow director nominees. On September 12, Egan Jones also recommended its clients support the merger and the re-election of the full Arrow Board of Directors and Institutional Shareholders Services (ISS) recommended its clients approve the merger and support the election of a majority of the current Board of Directors.

R. James Macaleer, Chairman commented, "We are pleased with the universal support for the Teleflex merger that we have received from four leading proxy advisory firms. We are also pleased that Glass Lewis, Proxy Governance, and Egan Jones also support the re-election of the full Board of Directors. However, we think that ISS is introducing unnecessary uncertainty into the voting process by recommending that shareholders support two McNeil Trust nominees and withhold votes from five McNeil Trust nominees. We believe that any change in the composition of the Board at this point could be detrimental to the timely completion of the Teleflex merger. We strongly believe that shareholders will benefit by voting for all of Arrow's director nominees. This Board is fully committed to completing the Teleflex transaction and acting in the best interests of all shareholders."

Arrow shareholders are reminded to vote the WHITE proxy card today to support the merger agreement with Teleflex and the election of the full slate of Arrow director nominees who will manage any events which may arise following the Annual Meeting and prior to the consummation of the merger. Arrow shareholders are cautioned NOT to return a blue proxy to the McNeil Trust.

All votes are important. For shares held by a brokerage firm or bank, Arrow shareholders should provide them with instructions on how to vote or they will be unable to vote on certain issues, including the adoption of the merger agreement. Please return the WHITE proxy card to the broker or bank to ensure that shares are voted or vote by telephone or Internet.

Shareholders with questions regarding the solicitation may contact Arrow International's proxy solicitor, Morrow & Co., Inc. toll-free at 1-800-662-5200.
