COLUMBIA, MD, June 26, 2012 - MICROS Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRS), a leading provider of information technology solutions for the hospitality and retail industries, is pleased to announce that it has formed a strategic partnership with Aston Hotels & Resorts, LLC, an operating business of Interval Leisure Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: IILG), a leading global provider of membership and leisure services to the vacation industry, to install the OPERA Enterprise Solution at its 27 properties located in the Hawaiian Islands, California, and Nevada. MICROS's hotel management software, which will be installed over a 11-month period starting in July, will manage approximately 4,000 units located across the 27 hotels, condominium resorts, villas, and cottages.
