"Fiscal 2016 results were in line with the Company's expectations, given the challenging year, with business aircraft OEMs seeing a decrease in production numbers. This adjustment in build rates contributed to flattened sales growth for the business this past year. The Company's efforts in continued operational improvements contributed to an increased bottom line," says Bruce Gowan, IWG Chairman.

The Company announced on November 28, 2016, that it had entered into an Arrangement Agreement with 1096777 B.C. Ltd. (the "Purchaser") and WM Capital Management, Inc., as guarantor, pursuant to which the Purchaser has agreed, subject to the conditions set out in such agreement, to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company at a price of $0.43 per share.  Further details are included in the MD&A and Financial Statements for the year ended September 30, 2016.  A Management Information Circular is expected to be mailed to shareholders in mid-December, for a planned shareholders' meeting in January 2017.

IWG Technologies Inc. is the public holding company for International Water-Guard Industries Inc., a Canadian aerospace company focused on aircraft potable water treatment, water systems, water heaters and components. IWG has expertise in all aspects of water treatment, has the products and know-how to provide high quality water for passengers and crew, and lightweight, space-saving solutions for the aircraft operator.
