ISC Reports Resumption of Saskatchewan Registry Services

REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwired - Dec. 14, 2016) - Information Services Corporation (TSX:ISV) ("ISC" or the "Company") today reported that Saskatchewan registry services resumed operations yesterday evening.

ISC experienced a broad technology service disruption affecting the availability of Saskatchewan registry services and support on Wednesday, December 7. This outage was not isolated to ISC. The Company understands the outage also impacted other clients of its technology service provider.

Commenting on the event Jeff Stusek, President & CEO said "We would like to thank all our stakeholders, especially our customers, for their patience and understanding. Our system technology was restored on Friday, December 9th. This was just the first of many steps required for the orderly resumption of registry services to the public. Over the past few days we have worked in close collaboration with the statutory officials from the Ministry of Justice to develop and execute this methodical series of steps designed to ensure continued integrity of these important registries."

As registry operations resume, the Company will be working to address any backlog that may have accumulated. ISC will also be reviewing the financial impact to fiscal 2016, if any, as a result of this temporary suspension of registry services.
