Zedi Amends Q3-2013 Financial Statements for Non-Cash Amortization Expense

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/17/14 -- Zedi Inc. (the "Company" or "Zedi") (TSX VENTURE:ZED). Today, Zedi filed amended financial statements as at and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013. While completing a systems conversion for capital asset tracking during Q4 of 2013, the Company discovered an error in the amortization of certain internally generated intangible assets which had resulted in the under-amortization of those assets over a number of years. While the impact on any individual reporting period was not considered significant, the cumulative impact of $1.49 million as of September 30, 2013 was deemed significant enough to cause the Company to elect to restate the most recent financial statements as of that date. Management has conducted a complete review of all capital and internally generated intangible assets and the historical calculation of depreciation and amortization to ensure that no further adjustments in this regard will be necessary.

As the error impacts only amortization and deferred tax amounts which are both non-cash in nature, there was no impact on EBITDA(1) or cash flow results previously reported.

The restated Q3 financial statements and MD&A are filed on SEDAR and can be accessed at www.sedar.com or on the Company's website at www.zedi.ca. Note 14 to the amended financial statements details the impact of the restatement, including impact on prior periods and comparative amounts. The impact on the 2013 statement of profit and loss is as follows:
