International Datacasting Corporation Announces Change in Management

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - February 23, 2016) -  International Datacasting Corporation ("IDC") (TSX VENTURE: IDC), a technology provider for the world's premiere broadcasters, today announces a change in management.

As previously announced, the Board has commenced a formal process to explore strategic alternatives with a view to enhancing shareholder value. Accordingly, IDC's Senior Management team including the Co-CEO's Chris Barrett and Steeve Huin, as well as the CFO, Steve Archambault, have voluntarily offered their resignations. The Board of Directors has accepted these resignations, with effective dates of February 22, 2016 for Co-CEOs Chris Barrett and Steeve Huin, and April 29, 2016 for Steve Archambault. Steve Archambault has agreed to serve as CFO and interim CEO during this transition period. Steeve Huin and Chris Barrett have also agreed to provide advisory consulting services to IDC following the resignation date.

He added, "With these voluntary resignations, we believe IDC has the greatest chance of success in finding the right partner going forward, and is in the best interest of other stakeholders including IDC customers and employees."

David Smith, chair of the compensation committee, added, "I want to personally thank each of Mr. Huin, Archambault and Barrett for their efforts and professionalism in helping IDC during this transition."
