OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 21, 2011) - Streetlight Intelligence Inc. ("SLQ" or the "Company") announced on April 19, 2011 that the Company has provided temporary layoff notices to all of its employees and suspended its operations. SLQ is continuing to evaluate strategic alternatives available in order to resume operations and enhance shareholder value.

SLQ is a Canadian company that develops advanced street light optimization systems. Trademarked as Lumen IQ(TM), SLQ's technologies provide improved lamp performance, adaptive lighting control, and system-wide communications for centralized street light management.

As part of advancing its objectives for business growth and the promotion of energy conservation, Hydro Ottawa has made modest strategic investments in SLQ through the purchase of share options (repayable on demand) and shares in the Company. The share option investments are secured through priority rights to all of the assets of SLQ, including their intellectual property.
