Poynt Expands Platform Advertising Potential with New Brandscape Solution

Poynt Goes Beyond the Banner with Integrated Elegant Design for Brand Placement

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2012) - Poynt Corporation (TSX VENTURE:PYN)(OTCQX:PNYTF) ("Poynt Corp." or the "Company"), announced today the expansion of its advertising products with the introduction of Brandscape, a persistent page takeover within the search verticals of the Poynt Platform ("Poynt" or the "Platform").

The Brandscape sponsorship provides advertisers with 100 percent Share of Voice within the search vertical of their choice - gas prices, businesses, movies, events, people and restaurants. Brandscape offers an integrated and elegant brand placement with the ability to target messages and special offers to Poynt users.

Brandscape allows users to click through directly to the sponsored brand's WAP site. Ultimately, the solution enables brands to get in front of users in a timely way when they are looking for relevant information.

"Mobile banner advertising is effective for targeting specific ads and offers but we wanted to create an ad product that became part of the user's experience," said Andrew Osis, CEO, Poynt Corp. "The presence offered by Brandscape is the solution for brands to get noticed and to reach users in a timely way in their moment of need."

Brandscape is available in Canada and the U.S. on iPhone and Android platforms. Additional information can found at www.poynt.com/brandscape.
