GuestLogix, Inc., the leading global provider of onboard retail and payment technology to airlines and the passenger travel industry, today announced that the Board of Directors have concluded a wide-ranging strategic review process that was initiated on October 9th, 2012, to consider a full range of alternatives to improve the long-term position of the Company's stakeholders.

A special committee of independent directors (the “Committee”) was formed to oversee the review process along with Canaccord Genuity Corp. as financial advisors, in which the Committee looked at multiple strategic alternatives including continuing the operation of the Company as-is with a focus on organic growth initiatives, the sale of the Company or synergistic M&A activity.

“Throughout the Strategic Review process, the Company executed well on its organic growth strategy and secured significant signings that dramatically improved both the short and long-term outlook of the Company,” said Brett Proud, President and CEO of GuestLogix.

During the Strategic Review process, the Company announced several business achievements including:
• Securing multi-year agreement with Finnair Travel Retail Oy;
• Closing CDN $7 Million financing deal;
• Awarded U.S. Patent in relation to Company’s Onboard Retail Technology;
• Secured 10-year partnership with IFE System Leader Thales Avionics to facilitate transaction processing through seatback screens;
• Successfully integrated UK-based, Initium Onboard into GuestLogix operations;
• Secured multi-year agreement with European Airline Germania and its subsidiary, Gambia Bird;
• Secured 4-year agreement with leading Asia Pacific Airline, Cathay Pacific and its subsidiary Dragonair
• Posted record quarterly revenue of US $7M in Q1 2013

“With the signing of our 10-year partnership with Thales and our announcement of our Panasonic Avionics partnership in September 2012, we have unlocked a strong future for the Company and have solidified both our market leadership status and growth potential,” added Proud. “Along with our recent success within Asia Pacific, and the strengthening of our workforce in Toronto and across all three regions, the Company is now positioned to drive a new level of shareholder value.”

The Committee concluded that the Strategic Review Process did not result in a transaction adequately reflecting the Company’s value. The Committee noted that the recent reduction in headcount, termination of low-opportunity projects and new partnerships to extend transaction processing enablement to new access points, were all key contributors to their decision. The Committee also cited that the assessment of future corporate development activities can be best assessed and managed through the Company’s internal management processes and through continued, effective communication with the full Board of Directors. As such, the Board of Directors has voted to conclude the formal process and the Company will move forward with a focus on organic growth.

“As will be the case going forward, we will remain open to reviewing all strategic opportunities as we continue to grow the business,” said Proud.
