Cody Ventures Corporation (OTC: CDYV) Board of Directors Receives Committee Recommendations to Move Forward on Forward Split Dividend to Shareholders

CEDAR HILL, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 17, 2005 -- Tarja Mees, CEO of Cody Ventures Corporation (OTC: CDYV) announced today that the Board of Directors of the company has received the Special Committee recommendations to implement a common stock dividend in the form of a forward split of its outstanding shares by mid-July. The number of shares to be distributed to shareholders will be determined by the Board after the accountants' report of financial condition as of June 30th, with the timing of the distribution set thereafter in accordance with the statutory and regulatory notification requirements and procedures of the company's transfer agent and the NASD. Notices will be mailed and shareholder approval action will be requested and filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada. In addition, the company's transfer agent and the NASD will need to be notified in a timely manner to implement the distribution.

As Mrs. Mees stated previously, "The Board believes it is time to thank and reward loyal shareholders with a stock dividend as a way for them to participate in the growth and good fortune enjoyed by the Company." She said again that, "We feel the Company has made significant strides in achieving its goals within the last thirty days, having recently received an initial infusion of equity capital from a private placement netting approximately $170,000." She reiterated that, "The Company is also presently in negotiations to escrow the acquisition of printing assets that could add substantial revenues in excess of $3 million annually, cut production costs and provide a stronger foundation in our developing a fully integrated advertising and publishing enterprise that will be a force to be considered by the industry not only in Texas, but nationally as well."
