AirIQ Board of Directors Approves Share Consolidation

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 26, 2011) - AirIQ Inc. ("AirIQ" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:IQ), a supplier of wireless location-based services, today announced that the board of directors of the Company (the "Board") has determined to proceed with the proposed share consolidation previously approved by shareholders at the Company's Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders held on June 9, 2010. At the meeting, shareholders approved by special resolution the proposed consolidation of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares at any time on or before June 9, 2011 on the basis of a ratio within the range of one (1) post-consolidation share for every ten (10) pre-consolidation shares to one (1) post- consolidation share for every forty (40) pre-consolidation shares, with the ratio to be selected and implemented by the Board in its sole discretion.

The Board has unanimously decided to choose the consolidation ratio of one (1) post-consolidation common share for up to every forty (40) pre-consolidation common shares. The Company's issued capital will be altered by consolidating all of the 174,146,741 currently issued common shares into 4,353,669 common shares (as at the date of this release). The exercise price and the number of common shares issuable under any of the Company's outstanding warrants and stock options will be proportionately adjusted upon consolidation.

No fractional common shares will be issued pursuant to the share consolidation. In lieu of any such fractional securities, each registered shareholder of the Company otherwise entitled to a fractional interest in a post-consolidation common share will receive the nearest whole number of post-consolidation common shares. For greater certainty, any fractional interest representing less than 0.5 of a post- consolidation common share will not entitle the holder thereof to receive a post-consolidation common share, and any fractional interest representing 0.5 or more of a post-consolidation common share will entitle the holder thereof to receive one whole post-consolidation common share. No cash will be paid in lieu of fractional post-consolidation common shares.

The purposes of the consolidation are to enhance the marketability of the Company's common shares as an investment, facilitate additional financings to fund operations in the future, raise the Company's share price to more attractive levels and improve the Company's financial alternatives.

The share consolidation is subject to receipt of approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
