Sportscene Group Inc. (La Cage aux Sports Restaurant-Bars) Adopts Leading Boards Paperless Board Solution

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 16, 2015) - Leading Boards, a Canadian company offering a highly secure and user-friendly portal enabling paperless management by boards of directors and committees, announces that Sportscene Group Inc., which has been operating Quebec's largest sports-themed restaurant-bar chain since 1984, La Cage aux Sports, has adopted the company's paperless solution to manage the meetings and documents of its board of directors and committees.

The Leading Boards board portal is a proven solution that provides a secure online workspace for storing information needed for meetings - agendas, minutes, archives, organizational policies, financial statements, etc. Directors can access this information in just a few clicks using a computer or iPad, without even connecting to the Internet. Since board of director documents stored on the portal are encrypted, the transmission of these documents is also very secure. Furthermore, the documents are hosted on ISO 27001-certified servers that are located in the client's country of residence, and therefore not subject to foreign laws.

"With the Leading Boards solution, our Board of Directors and committees have been able to practically eliminate the distribution of paper copies. It allows our directors to access up-to-date data and documents at any time, without excessive emailing. The Leading Boards solution is an easy-to-use application that has helped all of us become more efficient," said Jean Bédard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sportscene Group Inc.

"Our digital solution corresponds with Sportscene Group Inc.'s governance philosophy on all levels. As we grow in a dynamic market, the company is always on the lookout for latest generation tools to enhance its organizational effectiveness," said Jean-Marc Félio, President of Leading Boards. "This reflects our motto, which is to offer our clients a solution customized to their needs, to ensure sound corporate governance in a secure environment."
