CALGARY, Oct. 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Zaio Corporation (TSX-V:ZAO), ("Zaio" or "the Company"), today announced that it has now opened its patented database for order taking with coverage of over 90 million residential properties across the United States. The Company is currently fulfilling valuation orders for its products through its dedicated team of appraisers through Axis Appraisal Management Solutions nationwide.
"We have been working very closely with our partner appraisers for over three years to populate our patented database, and we are now in a unique position to provide highly accurate appraisals on almost every home in America," said David King, President and CEO of Zaio Corporation. "Our database technology and process continues to remain unique in the marketplace. With the database open for order taking in all 50 states, we are in a position to not only serve the appraisal and valuation industry across the country today, but this milestone sets the stage to provide valuation data to asset management firms that manage large portfolios of real estate in the future."
The Company is also pleased to announce that Zaio, Valuation Vision, LLC ("Valuation Vision") and Axis Appraisal Management Solutions ("Axis") collectively continue solid performance on a pro forma basis. The companies collectively processed Broker Price Opinions, GEAR Appraisal reports, and traditional appraisals across United States, generating approximately $3.0 million in revenue during each of the months of August and September on a pro forma basis (assuming completion of the acquisitions of Valuation Vision and Axis).
"We also continue to see broad acceptance of the product line that Zaio, Valuation Vision and Axis offer the market. As a result, we had two months of strong performance during August and September on a pro-forma basis, even though mortgage origination and housing market continued to decline on a month over month basis due to more stringent credit and lending requirements," continued Dave King.

Certain information in this press release is forward-looking within the meaning of Canadian securities laws as it relates to anticipated events and strategies. When used in this context, words such as will, anticipate, believe, plan, mandated, intend, target, and expect or similar words suggest future outcomes.
Forward-looking information in this press release, includes, among other things, information relating to: (i) projected revenues resulting from the acquisition of Valuation Vision and Axis; (ii) the audit of Valuation Vision, the completion of Valuation Vision's audited financial statements and the closing of the Valuation Vision transaction; (iii) conducting and completing an audit of Axis and the closing of the Axis transaction; and (iii) the timing and completion of the proposed financing.
These statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by the Company in light of its experience, current conditions and expected future developments and other factors it believes are appropriate. The material factors and assumptions used to develop these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: (i) the accuracy of the revenues reported by Valuation Vision and Axis; (ii) the ability of the Company to realize such revenues in the event the Valuation Vision and Axis transactions are closed and the ability of Zaio to effectively integrate the combined entities; (iii) the ability of the Company to close of the Valuation Vision transaction; (iv) the ability of the Company to close the Axis transaction; and (v) the ability of the Company to close the proposed financing.
The Company believes that the expectations reflected in this news release are reasonable but actual results may be affected by a variety of variables and may be materially different from the results or events predicted in the forward-looking statements. Readers are therefore cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking information. In evaluating forward-looking information readers should consider the risk factors which could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements, including risks that: (i) a definitive agreement is not made with Axis and the transaction does not close; (ii) the audit of Valuation Vision is not completed and the transaction does not close; (iii) the revenues of Valuation Vision and Axis are accurate and will be realized by the Company in the event the acquisition transactions close; (iv) that the financing will not be completed, or if it is, that the Company will not be sufficiently capitalized to close the Valuation Vision and Axis acquisitions or conduct operations of the combined entities; and (v) or that regulatory approval for the respective transactions is not obtained. If any such risks actually occur, they could materially adversely affect the Company's business, financial condition or results of operations. In that case the trading price of the Company's common shares could decline, perhaps materially.
Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Forward-looking statements are provided for the purpose of providing information about management's current expectations, and plans relating to the future. Readers are cautioned that such information may not be appropriate for other purposes.
