Vogogo Announces the Filing of a Statement of Claim by Ex-CTO Stan Carney

CALGARY, ALBERTA and PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 5, 2014) - Vogogo Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VGO) ("VGO") today announces that a statement of claim has been filed against VGO and its Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Gordon, in the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench by Ghost Pine Creek Ltd. ("Ghost Pine"), of which Stan Carney, the previous Chief Technology Officer of Vogogo Inc., is the sole director and shareholder.

The claim alleges a breach of certain provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Alberta) by VGO in connection with a February, 2014 repurchase of certain class "A" common shares by VGO previously held by Ghost Pine. The claim seeks damages in an amount in excess of $15,000,000.

VGO believes the suit is without merit and litigation counsel has been authorized and instructed to vigorously defend against these claims.
