Zaio Database Surpasses 30 Million Properties Across 10 States

Customer Validation Has Been Completed or Is Underway With Multiple National Scope End Users

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2012) - Zaio Corporation (TSX VENTURE:ZAO)(CNSX:ZAO) (the "Company") today announced that it had Marketable Property Appraisal Data available for order taking from its database on more than 30 million US residential properties covering 10 states. This represents an increase of approximately 50 percent over 20 million properties in the database reported at the end of the first quarter.

"A number of national level clients are in the process of coordinating product design and delivery schedules now, with several regional clients already receiving a growing number of valuation products offered through the Zaio database," noted G. Daniel Green MAI, SRA, member of the Managing Committee of Zone Data Systems LLC, Zaio's United States Licensee ("ZDS"). This increased validation activity is a leading indicator of the expected demand for Zaio's property appraisal products and services.

"I am very pleased with the progress that we have made this quarter in expanding both the scope of our database and the reach of our product distribution network," noted David King, Zaio's President and CEO. "Our resellers across the US have been introducing Zaio's appraisal products to their financial services clients who are looking for better, faster, and less expensive alternatives to existing property valuation tools. As a result, we are seeing more and more of these potential customers committing the necessary resources to validating the quality of Zaio's products."

Through its US Licensee, Zone Data Systems LLC (ZDS), Zaio sells access to its patented property appraisal database to various end users including national, regional and local financial institutions that require access to timely accurate property appraisals to support their regulated mortgage underwriting activities. Approximately $6 billion is spent annually in the US on property appraisal reports and related products.
