Zaio Corporation - Delay in filing financial statements

    TSX Venture Exchange Symbol: ZAO

    CALGARY, May 7 /CNW/ - ZAIO CORPORATION (TSX-V: ZAO) ("Zaio" or the
"Company") announced today that it has been advised by the Company's auditors
that the audit work related to the 2008 year-end audited financial statements
at this date has not yet been completed. The Alberta Securities Commission
(ASC) has confirmed to Zaio management that the common shares of the Company
are to be halted from trading as a result of a Cease Trade Order to be issued
by the ASC. As is standard practice with the ASC, the common shares will
remain halted until the financial statements are filed and the ASC is
satisfied that the reinstatement requirements have been completed by the
Company. The delays in preparing the Company's year-end statements were
primarily due to the complexities of winding up a Company subsidiary through
the year- end and the related verification of valuations for amounts appearing
in the financial statements at year-end.
    The Company wishes to emphasize that all steps are being taken as
expediently as possible to satisfy the auditor and the ASC requirements
