Continued partnership with Merlin and Six Flags

accesso Technology Group plc (AIM: ACSO) , the premier technology solutions provider for attractions and venues worldwide, has announced continued partnerships with two industry leaders in leisure and entertainment: Merlin Attractions Operations Ltd. ("Merlin"), a subsidiary of Merlin Entertainments, and Six Flags Entertainment Corporation ("Six Flags").

Steve Brown, CEO of accesso, commented:

"Our ongoing partnership with industry leaders like Merlin and Six Flags is testament not only to the value and strength of our accesso solutions, but also the incredibly close client relationships we've built over the years. During the pandemic, we sharpened our strategic focus and proved we could effectively meet their evolving needs and capture the resulting uptick in demand for our revenue-generating technology. These extended contract agreements are further proof that we have adapted effectively and continue to provide valuable support to our client base. We are honored to continue supporting both of these partners for many years to come as we work together to deliver secure, seamless and intuitive digital experiences for their guests."

accesso's new enterprise-level agreement with Merlin will see it continue serving as the exclusive ticketing technology provider for 113 Merlin venues across 19 countries through to August 2026, with the option to extend a further two years. This partnership supports on-site and online sales, empowering the operator to offer its guests a seamless and intuitive purchasing experience.

Six Flags will also advance its partnership with accesso by continuing its existing 10-year agreement that runs through 2025. Having waived an early termination option, Six Flags will continue to utilise accesso as its exclusive eCommerce provider across all 18 Six Flags North American theme parks; the accesso LoQueue virtual queuing suite will continue to support Six Flags in minimizing wait times for guests across all of its parks in the United States and Canada.

The extension of these agreements with two of accesso's key partners is a continuation of the company's stated strategy to remain steadfast in supporting the evolving needs of its existing client base. The Board's expectations for the 2022 financial year remain unchanged.

About accesso Technology Group, plc

At accesso, we believe technology has the power to redefine the guest experience. Our patented and award-winning solutions drive increased revenue for attractions operators while improving the guest experience. Currently serving over 1,000 venues in 30 countries around the globe, accesso's solutions help our clients streamline operations, generate increased revenues, improve guest satisfaction, and harness the power of data to educate business and marketing decisions.

accesso invests heavily in research and development because our industries demand it, our clients benefit from it and it makes a positive impact on the guest experience.

Our commitment to improving the guest experience and helping our clients increase revenue is the core of our business. Our technology solutions allow venues to increase the volume and range of on- and off-site spending, and to drive increased transaction-based revenue through cutting-edge ticketing, point-of-sale, virtual queuing, distribution and experience management software.

Many of our team members come from backgrounds working within the attractions and cultural industry. In this way, we are experienced operators who run a technology company serving attractions operators, versus a technology company that happens to serve the market. Our staff understands the day-to-day operations of managing complex venues and the challenges this creates, and together we strive to provide our clients and their guests with technology that empowers them to do more and enjoy more. From our agile development team to our dedicated client service specialists, every team member knows that their passion, integrity, commitment, teamwork and innovation are what drive our success.
