TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/28/14 -- Currency Exchange International, Corp. (the "Company") (TSX:CXI)(OTCBB:CURN), further to its press release dated March 20, 2014, announces today that its subsidiaries, Currency Exchange International America Corp. and Currency Exchange International of Canada Corp., have closed the acquisition of certain assets of U.S. Exchange House, Inc. ("USEH") pertaining to the wholesale banknote operations located in the United States of America and Canada. CXI paid USD$2.35 million in cash on closing along with two additional contingent payments of up to USD$1.325 million payable on the first and second anniversary after closing. These additional payments will be based on the amount of revenue generated from the customers acquired. The assets acquired from USEH will be merged and integrated into the Company's current banknote business and will continue to use the Currency Exchange International, Corp. brand name. Operational efficiencies are expected by the Company's management due to the very similar business operations and overlap of back office functions and the hiring of some USEH currency trading staff. CXI expects to continue to grow its banknote business due to the increased customer base.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
