GuestLogix Announces Operational Restructuring Designed to Enhance Future Financial Results

Company Reduces Headcount and Implements Initiatives to Realize Acquisition Synergies

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 7, 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 it has implemented an operational restructuring plan that will result in a reduction of approximately US$2 million in annual operating expenditures through a global initiative that reduces headcount by approximately 7% of its global workforce.

"We are implementing the necessary operational changes announced today to address our integration with the recently announced acquisition of Dublin-based OpenJaw Technologies," said Brett Proud, President & CEO of GuestLogix. "Going forward, we believe our leaner more streamlined organization structure allows us to grow profitably and scale quickly."
