redCity Search Company Inc. to Seek Shareholder Approval to Proposed Share Consolidation and Name Change

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 2, 2007) -


REDCITY SEARCH COMPANY INC. (TSX VENTURE:RDC) ("redCity" or the "Company"), a local internet search engine company, announces that it intends to seek the approval of its shareholders to, among other things, a share consolidation (on the basis of one new common share for every five old common shares), a change of name to "ZipLocal Inc." and a reduction in its stated capital.

"Among our primary objectives for 2007 is the launch of a new brand and user interface that will unify all of our online properties under a single banner", stated Elaine Kunda, President and CEO of redCity. "An integral part of this objective is the incorporation of the newly-acquired 'Zip411' brands into the name of the Company to better reflect its business and operations. With a reinvigorated brand and enhance the user experience, and a more aggressive marketing strategy, we believe the Company will possess the tools necessary to capture a sizeable portion of the Canadian search market."

Currently, the Company has an aggregate of 260,457,662 common shares issued and outstanding. After giving effect to the consolidation, it expects to have an aggregate of 52,091,532 common shares issued and outstanding. It is intended that redCity's change of name will occur concurrently with the share consolidation. Management believes that the share consolidation is necessary to provide the Company with an outstanding share capital number that will better attract capital financing and that will provide future growth opportunities for shareholders on their investment. In addition, the Company intends to seek approval from its shareholders to effect a reduction in its stated capital by $12,701,947 in order to eliminate an accumulated deficit as at September 30, 2006 as a result of the activities of one of its predecessor corporations, Red Media Corp.

redCity will be asking its shareholders to approve, among other things, the share consolidation, name change and reduction in stated capital at an annual and special meeting of its shareholders scheduled to take place at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 30, 2007, at the offices of Wildeboer Dellelce LLP located at Suite 800, Wildeboer Dellelce Place, 365 Bay Street, Toronto, Ontario. A management information circular prepared in connection with the meeting has been mailed to the shareholders of redCity. The management information circular is available at the SEDAR website (

The board of directors of the Company has unanimously recommended that redCity's shareholders approve the share consolidation, name change and reduction in stated capital.
