VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- PNI Digital Media (TSX: PN)(OTCBB: PNDMF) ("PNI" or the "Company") announced that it will postpone its previously announced conference call to discuss its annual financial statements and Management Discussion and Analysis for the year and fourth quarter ended September 30, 2012 (the "Annual Financial Results"). The conference call has been rescheduled to accommodate a delay in the release and filing of the Company's Annual Financial Results. The call was originally scheduled for Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 4:30 pm (ET) and will be rescheduled in due course.

The delay in releasing the Annual Financial Results is due to additional procedures and reviews that are being undertaken by the Company as a result of concerns over the appropriateness of payments made to a supplier in the aggregate amount of $208,000 in June and August of 2012 (the "Payments"). Additional time is required to complete the annual financial statements and this may result in the release of the statements past the mandated deadline of December 31, 2012.

The Company also announces that Robert Chisholm, the Chairman of the Audit Committee has resigned as a director of the Company as a result of concerns pertaining to the Payments. Peter Fitzgerald, the Chairman of the board of directors and a current independent director of the Company, has been appointed Chairman of the Audit Committee.

"Based on the information provided to the Board, there does not appear to be any impropriety in respect of the relatively modest payment made to a supplier that is in question," said Peter Fitzgerald, Chairman. "However, as Mr. Chisholm has raised concerns over this payment, the independent directors feel it is appropriate to review the circumstances of the payment in greater detail."

The Company further confirms the appointment of Cameron Lawrence as Chief Financial Officer of the Company. Mr. Lawrence has served as interim Chief Financial Officer of the Company since September 11, 2012.

The Company also announces that it has adopted a majority voting policy for the election of directors of the Company. The majority voting policy stipulates that in an uncontested election of directors at an annual general meeting, any nominee who receives a greater number of shares "withheld" than "shares voted in favour" will be required to immediately submit his or her resignation to the board of directors of the Company. The resignation will take effect upon acceptance by the board of directors of the Company.
