Gateway Newstands Deal With TTC Far Superior to International Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Gateway Newstands, the largest operator of newstands in North America, today reiterated the superiority of its agreement to harmonize and extend its lease agreements for newstands, lotteries, cafes and bakeries with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) over a late, unsolicited bid from International News.

"Our deal is better in every way - and provides greater revenue to the TTC," said Michael Aychental, CEO of Gateway Newstands.

Aychental pointed out that the Gateway agreement actually amounts to $48.1-million, when an additional $6.4-million in cleaning costs, arranged by Gateway and paid by its suppliers directly to the TTC, is factored into the comparison.

The International bid in fact amounts to $42.87-million, when lost rental revenue to the TTC - due to transitional and construction costs that International would have to incur - is taken into account.

"In every respect," said Aychental, "the Gateway bid is far superior."

Aychental referred to a chart, which categorizes the major elements of the agreement, and compares Gateway's proven credibility with International's promises.

"The proof is there," said Aychental, "in black and white."

Gateway Newstands is the largest operator of newstands in North America, with more than 500 stores in transit - including subways, bus stations, train stations, other transit venues, office towers, shopping centres, hospitals, and other institutional venues. Where we are located, we pride ourselves on being a trusted and reliable partner.
