Judge Makes Unprecedented Ruling Against SITO Mobile in Stalking Horse Bid

JERSEY CITY, N.J., March 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SITO Mobile Ltd. (OTCQB:SITO), a leading mobile engagement platform provider, announced that on March 10, 2015, the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Court") approved the Amended Bid for the Right to Sponsor a Plan of Reorganization (the "ESW Bid") submitted by ESW Capital, LLC ("ESW"), as modified on the record at the hearing held on March 9, 2015, as a higher and otherwise better bid than the bid submitted by SITO Mobile, Ltd.

Under the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement SITO signed with the Debtor, and the Bid Procedures Order previously entered by the Court, SITO, as the Stalking Horse Bidder, is entitled to receive a break-up fee in the amount of $225,000 and expense reimbursement of up to $100,000.

Jerry Hug, Chief Executive Officer of SITO Mobile said, "We were disappointed in the ruling by the Bankruptcy Court. We believe the fact that Hipcricket breached our stalking horse Asset Purchase Agreement by accepting the "Plan of Reorganization" bid by ESW. We believe that SITO should have been designated the successful bidder in the auction process."
