At the Request of IIROC First Global Unaware of Any Material Changes

TSX Venture Exchange: FGD

TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - At the request of IIROC, First Global Data Limited ("First Global" or the "Company") wishes to advise that the Company's management is unaware of any material change in the Company's operations that would account for the recent increase in market activity.

The Company is making significant progress in the mobile payments sector. The Company previously announced a service launch with Vijaya Bank in India on November 7, 2016 which, coupled with the decision by the Indian government to eliminate certain paper currency denominations, creates a significant opportunity for the Company (as announced in its press release of November 11, 2016). This all follows the Company having won multiple awards, including the "Best Initiative in Mobile Payments Award 2015" (announced on June 15, 2015).

"We are very pleased with the Company's progress to date, and are very excited about the prospects for our future. It is gratifying to see that the world is beginning to discover First Global and I look forward to sharing more news on our progress", said Andre Itwaru, the Company's Chairman and CEO.
