Intercap Inc. Commences Compulsory Acquisition

Intercap Inc. Commences the Compulsory Acquisition of Remaining Common Shares of ZipLocal Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 21, 2017) - Intercap Inc. ("Intercap") and ZipLocal Inc. (NEX:ZIP.H) ("ZipLocal") announce that Intercap has mailed a notice of compulsory acquisition ("Notice of Compulsory Acquisition") to the remaining holders of common shares (the "ZipLocal Shares") of ZipLocal.

Following Intercap's offer to acquire all of the ZipLocal Shares, Intercap owns approximately 90.9% of the issued and outstanding ZipLocal Shares.

Since Intercap's offer was accepted by holders of more than 90% of the ZipLocal Shares, Intercap is now exercising its right under the compulsory acquisition provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) to acquire all outstanding ZipLocal Shares not already owned by it on the basis of (i) cash equal to $0.0035 for each ZipLocal Share, or (ii) one non-voting redeemable (on a non-pro rata basis) preferred share of Intercap for each ZipLocal Share, all of which Intercap preferred shares, if issued, will be redeemed at a redemption price equal to $0.0035 concurrently with, or immediately following, the completion of the compulsory acquisition. Further details are provided in the Notice of Compulsory Acquisition.

Intercap intends to have the ZipLocal Shares de-listed from the NEX Board of the TSX Venture Exchange and to cause ZipLocal to cease to be a reporting issuer upon completion of the compulsory acquisition.
