WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - June 22, 2017) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp" or the "Company") (OTCQX:SNIPF)(TSX VENTURE:SPN), a global provider of digital marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions, today announced that it has signed a six-figure multi-year contract (the "Contract") with one of the top 3 American music entertainment companies (the "Customer") to extend and make significant upgrades to a previously customized and deployed SAAS based platform that runs promotions for the Customer. Snipp initially had inherited this platform via its acquisition of Hip Digital in 2015. In addition to licensing the platform and providing ongoing support services, Snipp also provides Brands that work with Snipp, access to Customer's extensive catalogue of content. The execution of this Contract is intended to further deepen and enhance this relationship.

As part of the Contract, the Company also entered into a 12-month extension of its music licenses from the Customer. Consequently, the Customers' extensive music repertoire will continue to be available on the SnippRewards platform as incentives for brands to offer to their consumers.

Atul Sabharwal, CEO of Snipp, said, "We are very pleased to expand our relationship with this Customer whose extensive music collection is extremely appealing to brands looking for highly relevant and instantly gratifying digital rewards. This deal enables us to continue to offer brands a wide selection of rewards and turnkey solutions from Snipp. In addition, this enhanced relationship demonstrates that our platforms can be customized and deployed in new and unique ways to serve large enterprise clients who want to have a higher degree of control on their marketing initiatives and opens up a whole new market for Snipp to deploy its expertise and solutions."

The Company would also like to provide an update on its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Financing") as per previous press releases dated May 5, 2017 and May 19, 2017. The Company is finalizing its second tranche (the "Second Tranche") of the Financing and is expecting to close it shortly.
