iMarketing Solutions Group Inc. Commences Formal Restructuring Proceeding and 
Files for Protection Under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act 
TORONTO, April 12, 2013 /CNW/ - iMarketing Solutions Group Inc. (CNSX: IMR) 
(the "Company"), a North American integrated marketing services provider of 
direct marketing solutions for not-for-profit organizations, political 
organizations and professional associations, announced today that it has 
commenced restructuring proceedings by filing for and being granted 
protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA"). The 
Company's Canadian and U.S. subsidiaries have also been granted protection 
under the Initial Order. The Company has applied to have the Initial Order 
and the CCAA proceedings recognized in the United States pursuant to Chapter 
15 of Title 11 to the United States Code (the "Recognition Order"). The effect 
of the Recognition Order, if granted, will be that the Initial Order will be 
recognized and enforced in the U.S. and the assets of the Company and its 
subsidiaries will be subject to the protection granted under the Initial Order 
and the CCAA proceedings in Canada. 
Pursuant to the Initial Order, Duff & Phelps Canada Restructuring Inc. was 
appointed as the Company's CCAA monitor (the "Monitor"). The Monitor's role 
is to work with the Company to assist it to complete its restructuring process 
and to oversee certain restructuring activities. 
During the restructuring period, the Company intends to continue to operate in 
the normal course. In order to do so, the Company has arranged a 
Court-approved loan facility to fund the business. 
The principal purpose of these restructuring proceedings is to create a 
stabilized environment in order to carry out a process to solicit investors, 
strategic partners, plan sponsors or purchasers for the Company's business and 
assets to preserve its going-concern value. 
During the CCAA proceedings, Upkar Arora will be retained as the Company's 
Chief Restructuring Officer. Mr. Arora is a seasoned professional who has 
experience working with companies in these situations. 
The Company's normal day-to-day operations and each of its core businesses are 
expected to continue without interruption. 
The Company is confident that the protection resulting from the CCAA filing 
will provide the Company with the stability it requires in order to advance 
and efficiently execute a restructuring plan that is in the best interests of 
its customers, creditors, employees and other stakeholders.
