ZoomerMedia Limited (Formerly Fifty-Plus.Net International Inc.) Announces Fourth Quarter and 2009 Year-End Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2009) - ZoomerMedia Limited (formerly Fifty-Plus.Net International Inc.) (TSX VENTURE:ZUM) today announced financial results for the year ended June 30, 2009.

On December 28, 2007, Olympus Management Limited ("OML"), a private Ontario corporation, acquired control of Fifty-Plus.Net International Inc. ("FPN") through a reverse take-over ("RTO").

As a result of the RTO, the former controlling shareholder of Kemur (i.e. OML) acquired control of FPN. Under the purchase method of accounting Kemur has been identified as the acquirer, and, accordingly, the entity is considered to be a continuation of Kemur with the net assets of FPN at the date of the RTO deemed to have been acquired by Kemur. Since the RTO is accounted for as a reverse take-over, the comparative figures are those of Kemur. The earnings of Fifty-Plus.Net International Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, Fifty-Plus.Net Inc. have been included in the statements of loss and comprehensive loss from the date of acquisition, December 28, 2007. On June 10, 2008, Kemur was continued as a Federal corporation and changed its name to ZoomerMedia Limited ("ZoomerMedia"). On July 1, 2008, Fifty-Plus.Net International Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries Fifty-Plus.Net Inc. and ZoomerMedia Limited amalgamated and now carry on business under the name ZoomerMedia Limited.
