Zaio Signs Agreement With Major National Lender Platform

National Program Provides Major Banks With Products to Replace "Broker Price Opinion" Valuations

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2011) - Zaio Corporation (CNSX:ZAO) (the "Company"), today announced that it's partner in the United States, Zone Data Systems LLC ("ZDS") has entered into a multi-year Reseller Agreement (the Agreement) with one of the top three financial services platforms in the United States to provide volume access to Zaio's patented property valuation products for national mortgage origination, default, and loan servicing banking clients.

"Signing this Agreement with a major national company serving the US mortgage lending industry and major banks represents a critical milestone for Zaio and Zone Data Systems. It provides customer validation of the value proposition that is at the core of our business model," said David King, Zaio's President and CEO. "While we expect the initial order flow from this Agreement will be moderated in the first few months as order-management systems are aligned and our database continues its scheduled build out, we believe the potential run-rate from Zone Data Systems and our signed reseller community is in the order of tens of thousands of appraisal products per month."

The Agreement was structured to meet the needs of national banks that currently use "broker price opinions" as the initial valuation test in underwriting residential mortgage loans and loan servicing and default proceedings. Under this Agreement, the Reseller will be able to offer all of their banking clients direct access to the full-range of Zaio appraisal products supported by the Company's patented technology and process. The Zaio database is supported by almost 1300 managed licensed appraisers across the United States under its license agreement with ZDS.
