SEL Exchange Inc. Updates Market

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 1, 2014) - Further to its press release of September 22, 2014, SEL Exchange Inc. (the "Company" or "SEL") (TSX VENTURE:SEL) provides the following update respecting the personal circumstances which resulted in the removal of a former executive of the Company, who has also resigned from the Company's board of directors.

As confirmed in a press release issued by the Niagara Regional Police, the Company's former executive, along with various other individuals, has been charged with various criminal offences involving conduct unrelated to the business of the Company. The authorities, in connection with their investigation of the former executive, have alleged that the former executive used the premises of the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, SLM Logistics Corporation, to facilitate the alleged criminal activities. The Company is cooperating with the authorities in respect of this matter.

The Company has established a special committee of its board to conduct an internal investigation to independently verify and determine the extent, if any, that the Company's facilities or the Company were used in the commission of the alleged criminal conduct, and to implement such measures as may be required to prevent any reoccurrence. The special committee has retained special counsel to assist it in its investigation and the implementation of measures.

The former executive is the only Company official that has been implicated in the investigation and it is the understanding of the Company that no charges are anticipated to be levied against the Company with respect to the alleged criminal activity.

The Board of Directors, under the leadership of Gary Clifford, the interim Chairman and CEO, is also in the process of implementing further measures to ensure that the Company's continuing operations are beyond reproach and unaffected by the former executive's personal circumstances.
