Cortex Reports Network Statistics for the Month of June 2013

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - July 11, 2013) - Cortex Business Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CBX) reports the following network statistic updates for the month of June 2013. This report is issued by the second Thursday of each month.

On-boarding efforts and transaction volumes were significantly impacted from June 21 to June 30th, due to major flooding throughout southern Alberta. While Cortex saw no interruption in service, many of our customers were impacted by the evacuation and closure of Downtown Calgary resulting in the inability to send or receive over the Cortex system.

Cortex provided seamless continuity during this time for our customers by holding supplier submitted invoices in the system until affected organizations restored power and came back online. On June 28th Cortex began processing the backlogged transactions to our customers and all customers are now fully operational.
