DENVER, Nov. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roomlinx, Inc. (OTC:RMLX), the innovative developer of media networks and interactive TV (iTV) applications for the hospitality industry, today announced that it has retained Hayden IR, a national investor relations consulting firm, to develop and implement a strategic investor relations program to raise its visibility and strengthen its relationships with the investment community.
"The hospitality industry is in the midst of a major technology transition driven by consumer demand for enhanced, high speed data services and high definition entertainment products," commented Michael Wasik, CEO of Roomlinx, Inc. "In March of this year we signed a master service agreement with Hyatt Hotels and anticipate deploying our solutions in up to 60,000 guest rooms over the next two years. We have also joined with leading entertainment and programming providers DISH Network and Starz Entertainment to deploy premium and on-demand content."
Wasik continued, "While we believe our solutions fill a major gap in hotel guest service offerings, they also offer new, unique revenue opportunities to hotels, and to Roomlinx, that had not existed previously in the industry. We have retained Hayden IR to help build shareholder value through an investor relations program that highlights this and other opportunities ahead of us."
With offices in New York, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Seattle and San Diego, Hayden IR provides a comprehensive range of investor relations services to a growing list of clients. For more than a decade, Hayden IR has been a recognized leader in driving market recognition and creating sustainable competitive advantages for more than 100 micro- and small-cap companies.

"We are excited about the market opportunity available to Roomlinx and its role as a leading technology differentiator in the hospitality sector," stated David Fore, Director of Research of Hayden IR. "With an expansive master services agreement with leading hotelier Hyatt Hotels, and potentially others in the future, along with very compelling per room economics, we do not believe the market fully recognizes the revenue opportunity that lies ahead for Roomlinx. We look forward to addressing this by assisting Roomlinx in building shareholder value with a comprehensive IR program that expands the company's visibility within the investment community.
