TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- Advantex Marketing International Inc. (CNSX:ADX) ("Advantex" or the "Company"), a leading specialist in merchant funding and loyalty marketing programs, today announced its results for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012. All currency amounts are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.


"We are pleased to report a net income under difficult economic conditions more severe than we have seen in sometime thereby affecting consumer spending. In addition, the NHL strike was also another factor that negatively affected the restaurant sector. Over half of merchants participating in our programs operate restaurants. This is reflected in our results. While revenues were ahead of corresponding periods previous year they were not what we expected, and this affected our profitability, said Kelly Ambrose, Advantex President and Chief Executive Officer.


I am excited by the recent acquisition which added about 700 merchants to our portfolio. This gives us an opportunity to expand the program as a re-seller of aeroplan miles across the small merchant market, and in time has the potential to strengthen the Company's relationship with Aeroplan and add to the Company's profitability," said Mr. Ambrose.
