GuestLogix Announces Internal Review of Its Accounting Policies

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 16, 2015) - GuestLogix Inc. (TSX:GXI), the leading global provider of ancillary-focused merchandising, payment and business intelligence technology to airlines and the passenger travel industry, today announced that a preliminary internal review initiated by the CEO and the board of directors of the Company in respect of a/certain contract(s) has revealed that the Company may not have been following proper revenue recognition accounting policies.

As a result, the Company has formed an independent committee of its directors to supervise a review of the Company's historical financial statements and to determine the extent to which these issues could result in the Company being required to restate any of its financial statements. The Committee will also be considering the adequacy of the Company's internal controls. The Committee is being advised by external counsel which has engaged Deloitte LLP to assist in the review.

While it is too early to determine the precise amounts or effect of the issues that have been identified, the preliminary review indicates that they are material. The Company and its advisors intend to work expeditiously to conclude the review, determine the nature and scope of any issues identified and finalize any related disclosures.

The Company will provide updates on its affairs in accordance with its obligations under Canadian securities laws and as its internal review progresses.
