IDI, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IDI), an information solutions provider, today announced the appointment of Grant Thornton as its new principal independent registered public accounting firm, which was effective July 14, 2015. Grant Thornton replaces RBSM LLP. The decision to change auditors was not the result of any disagreement between the Company and RBSM LLP on any matter of accounting principle or practice, financial statement disclosures or auditing scope or procedure.

The change of auditor was made as a part of the Company's expansion strategy, as it continues to develop new products and add new clients across a broad range of sectors and regions. As its business continues to grow and scale, IDI sought an auditor with a broad presence. Grant Thornton LLP, founded in 1924, is one of the world's leading independent audit, tax and advisory firms, with revenue in excess of $1.4 billion and 57 offices nationwide.

Mr. Derek Dubner, Co-CEO of IDI, Inc. stated, "We are pleased to be working with Grant Thornton. This change reflects the rapid growth and momentum that our business is enjoying. Their support and experience will be a substantial benefit as we enter our next stage of development."

IDI filed a Form 8-K related to the change in its certifying accountants on July 15, 2015.
