Coastal.com Recognized Among Canada's Ten Most Admired Corporate Cultures Of 2013

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coastal Contacts Inc. (Nasdaq:COA) (TSX:COA) ("Coastal.com" or "the Company"), the leading online provider of eyewear, was one of the winners for Canada's Ten Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ of 2013. Coastal.com's Canadian subsidiary is www.ClearlyContacts.ca.

This award was founded and presented by Waterstone Human Capital, one of Canada's fastest-growing retained executive search firms, which specializes in recruiting for fit and cultural assessment. This national program, now in its ninth year, annually recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having a culture that has helped them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.

Coastal.com was recognized for the award within the mid-market category (revenues over $100 million to $500 million).

"What's so impressive about this diverse list of 2013 winners is the shared belief that their culture is a competitive advantage–whether they are a leading high-growth e-retailer or a not-for-profit foundation," said Marty Parker, CEO of Waterstone Human Capital, in a statement announcing the winners. "They know that building and sustaining a great culture will result in great performance."

Roger Hardy, Founder and CEO of Coastal.com, commented: "Here at Coastal.com, we are believers that culture plays an integral role in driving the performance of our organization. As proven by many companies, both past and present, a strong corporate culture can also help drive superior shareholder returns. We are honored to be included in such a diverse group of successful Canadian companies and want to thank Waterstone for recognizing an important—yet often overlooked—aspect of business."
