In the event a ZipLocal Shareholder does not specify the form of Offer Consideration which such ZipLocal Shareholder wishes to receive, such ZipLocal Shareholder will be deemed to have elected to receive Cash Consideration.

THE OFFER WILL BE OPEN FOR ACCEPTANCE UNTIL 5:00 P.M. (EASTERN TIME) ON JUNE 26, 2017 (THE "EXPIRY TIME") UNLESS THE OFFER IS EXTENDED OR WITHDRAWN BY INTERCAP.

ZipLocal has determined, and hereby states that the initial deposit period for the Offer shall be for a minimum period of 35 days commencing on May 19, 2017, the date of the Offer, and this news release constitutes a "deposit period news release", as contemplated under applicable Canadian securities laws in this regard.

Included in the mailing to ZipLocal shareholders is ZipLocal's directors' circular, also dated May 19, 2017.

The board of directors of ZipLocal has unanimously determined that the Offer is fair to ZipLocal Shareholders and in the best interest of ZipLocal and ZipLocal Shareholders and unanimously recommends that ZipLocal Shareholders accept the Offer and deposit their ZipLocal Shares to the Offer.

As previously announced, Intercap, ZipLocal and certain ZipLocal Shareholders have entered into a lock-up and support agreement (the "Support Agreement"), pursuant to which, and subject to the terms and conditions therein, ZipLocal agreed to support the Offer and such ZipLocal Shareholders have agreed, subject to certain exceptions, to deposit under the Offer and not withdraw an aggregate of 23,079,702 ZipLocal Shares, collectively representing approximately 76.1% of the outstanding ZipLocal Shares.
