The Board of Directors and Majority Shareholders Today Announced Their Approval of a Reverse Stock Split and Ticker Symbol Change, a Stock Dividend to Zippi Shareholders Will Also Take Place in March 2009

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 17, 2009) - Zippi Networks Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ZIPN) (PINKSHEETS: ZIPI), turning America's "Clutter into Cash," today announced it has completed a one thousand for one reverse stock split. Based on several market factors and current economic conditions Zippi Networks, Inc. made the decision to tighten up the company's capitalization as they negotiate on a growth round of capital to further the company's growth and roll out of its latest product in the mobile commerce market.

As a result the company realizes the value exchange when completing a reverse split requires continued support of its shareholder base as the company aims at increasing shareholder equity for the long term. Zippi's management believes that its company's value and ultimate success depends on a strong and loyal shareholder base, and believes the approval of a stock dividend is necessary to show its appreciation and support of Zippi.

Robert A. Rositano Jr., CEO Zippi Networks, Inc., stated, "Zippi has been very fortunate in the development stages of our business to have built a loyal community of shareholders that believe in the Zippi offering. As we push forward with what is proving to be an amazing business we must show our appreciation to our shareholders in every way possible. In this regard Zippi will be completing a stock dividend to all shareholders of record as of March 15, 2009 who have acquired shares in the open market or through investment in private placements over the years. The dividend of shares issued will be computed on the number of shares owned as of the above date and will be determined as we monitor our share performance in the coming weeks."
