Alignvest Acquisition Corporation Announces Filing of Annual Information Form and Investor Conference Call

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 21, 2016) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Alignvest Acquisition Corporation (TSX:AQX.A)(TSX:AQX.WT) ("Alignvest Acquisition" or the "Company") has filed its annual information form on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR") which may be viewed by interested parties under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com or the Company's website at www.sedar.com.

The Company announces that it has reviewed, and continues to actively review, qualifying acquisition targets. However, it would be premature to provide further details at this time, and, while we remain confident that we will be able to complete a qualifying acquisition, there can be no assurance that this will occur. We are not able to determine at this time whether we will complete a qualifying acquisition with any of the target businesses that we have reviewed or with any other target business. While we are not limited to a particular industry or geographic region for purposes of completing our qualifying acquisition, we intend to focus our search for target businesses headquartered or have significant operations in North America. Any qualifying acquisition would be subject to the approval of an ordinary resolution of the Corporation's shareholders.

Senior management will be hosting an investor conference call to allow holders of Class A restricted voting shares the opportunity to hear from and ask questions of management.

Conference call: Please call in at least 10 minutes prior to the call.
Date: Tuesday, August 2, 2016 at 4:30 pm (EDT)
