Quigley Corporation Receives Support from Leading Independent Proxy Advisory Firms; RiskMetrics and Glass Lewis Reject Dissident Stockholder Ted Karkus, Citing Failure to Provide Detailed Business Plan

DOYLESTOWN, Pa., May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Quigley Corporation (Nasdaq: QGLY) www.quigleyco.com, today announced that the world's leading independent proxy advisory firms RiskMetrics Group ("RMG"), (formerly ISS-Institutional Shareholder Services), and Glass Lewis & Co. have recommended that stockholders vote the Quigley Corporation WHITE proxy card and reject dissident investor Ted Karkus' solicitation seeking control of the Board of Directors at the Company's upcoming annual meeting to be held on May 20, 2009.
