Q3 Results:

360 VOX Corporation ("360 VOX" or the "Company"), a global real estate company in the hospitality and asset management, real estate development and sales and marketing businesses, today reported third quarter results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $20 million, down 13% from $23 million in the second quarter and up by $18 million from the same quarter of fiscal 2012. Net revenue remained virtually unchanged at $6 million from the second quarter, and increased by $3.4 million from the same quarter in fiscal 2012. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $52 million, an increase of $46 million from the same period in 2012. Increase in revenue over 2012 is primarily revenue from the acquired businesses of Sotheby's International Realty Canada announced in the latter part of 2012.

Cash balance at the end of Q3 increased as a result of the private placement of convertible debentures ($8.7 million), announced earlier in the year, offset by the cash used to acquire the Company's hospitality division ($1.0 million) and advances made to a development in Croatia ($1.18 million).

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $3.1 million, or $0.01 per share. The net loss was affected by several non-cash adjustments required by IFRS, which includes significant amortization expense ($3.2 million) and other non-cash items ($0.4 million). The net loss is also affected by one-time acquisition and due diligence related costs ($1.3 million). The adjusted net earnings1 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 would have been $1.1 million or $0.004 per share.

1 Adjusted net earnings does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and thus may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other issuers. The Company believes that the adjusted net earnings presented enables the Company's shareholders to better assess the Company's operating results. Investors should consider this non-IFRS measure in the context of the Company's IFRS results.

"During the third quarter, we continued to focus our efforts on growing our businesses with development and operation agreements announced in Vancouver, China and Croatia" said Robin Conners, President and CEO of 360 VOX Corporation. "Overall company performance is representative of our focus to form partnerships and invest in transactions that add value to the long-term growth of our Company".
