Starrex Announces Appointment of New President and Chief Executive Officer

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 1, 2016) - Starrex International Ltd. ("Starrex" or the "Company") (CSE:STX) announces that its board of directors has unanimously appointed Matthew Hill as the Company's new President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. He has also been appointed as a member of the Audit Committee. Mr. Hill, who previously served as the Company's Senior Vice President, replaces Philip Garrett Clayton who resigned those offices in order to devote more of his time to his other business interests. Mr. Clayton will continue to be involved in the affairs of the Company as one of its directors.

The board of directors looks forward to the anticipated further development of the Company under the leadership of Mr. Hill through organic growth of its existing business and through strategic acquisitions to add to its mortgage appraisal businesses and to expand into related fields that can provide synergies and growth, all with a view to enhancing shareholder value.

The board of directors also wishes to express their appreciation to Mr. Clayton for his efforts and dedication to the Corporation over the past three years, overseeing its transformation to an active business in the United States mortgage services industry. The board further welcomes his continuing involvement as a director of the Company.

The Company is pursuing an application to the Ontario Securities Commission to revise the existing management cease trade order to accommodate the change of its Chief Executive Officer.
