Market Overview

IZEA Seeks Immediate Cessation of Trading and Delisting from the Berlin-Bremen Stock Exchange


operator of IZEAx®, the premier online marketplace connecting brands and
publishers with influential content creators, today announced that it
has contacted the Berlin-Bremen Stock Exchange (the "BBSE") and has
demanded an immediate halt to trading in IZEA's common stock, as well as
an immediate delisting of the stock. IZEA's common stock was listed on
the BBSE without the Company's prior knowledge, consent or
authorization. IZEA did not authorize or direct any BBSE broker to act
as a market maker for the company's common stock.

IZEA is working with its attorneys to cause the immediate cessation of
trading and delisting of its common stock from the BBSE and will explore
all appropriate legal remedies available to the Company.

"We did not apply for this listing on the BBSE. We were not consulted or
contacted by anyone at the BBSE and we certainly did not request or
consent to the listing," said Ted Murphy, Founder and CEO of IZEA. "We
have no interest in trading on the BBSE and from our perspective, there
is no justifiable explanation for this. The Company is now considering
its options to pursue appropriate remedies against any parties
responsible for this unauthorized listing."
