Points Named One of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers

Points' innovative, positive work environment recognized by Canada's Top 100 Employers 2016

Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in loyalty currency management, is honored to announce it has been named as one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers in 2016. The competition recognizes small and medium enterprises (SMEs) whose teams of dedicated employees foster Canada's best workplaces and carry out forward-thinking initiatives.

"One of our founding principles at Points is to put our people first and support their growth, both personally and professionally," said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points. "This recognition speaks to the great people that we've brought onto our team, but even more importantly the impact they've made in pushing us further — in our culture, in our technology and as a company."

This recognition comes at an exciting time for Points as the company continues to forge strong partnerships across industries and broaden their product offerings which leverage the company's core technology — the Points Loyalty Commerce Platform, all as a part of their concerted effort to grow the value of loyalty programs worldwide. Points recently announced an industry-first partnership with La Quinta Inns & Suites to allow La Quinta Returns members to redeem points at luxury hotel locations around the globe, and renewed and extended partnerships with Southwest's Rapid Rewards and Air France-KLM's Flying Blue.

The Canada's Top 100 Employers program evaluates employers on a variety of criteria including physical workspace, atmosphere, performance management, training and skills development and community involvement. Organizations are considered alongside similar businesses in their respective industries.

A complete list of the 2016 finalists can be found on the Canada's Top Small and Medium Employers website, as well as in a feature in The Globe and Mail.
