Spermy's Journey is available for download free at the Google Play store at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sperminator.game

Spermy's Journey is available on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/spermys-journey-race-to-egg%21/id741293412?mt=8

Spermy's Journey is also available for Android users at: http://apps.goodereader.com/games/android-games-casual/?did=29746

The Company is also pleased to announce that the developer of Spermy's Journey, Mr. Brian Appell, will be joining the Company's board of advisors. Mr. Appell is a veteran tech entrepreneur and mobile app developer, and founder of Avalanche Mountain Apps, a mobile application company that focuses primarily on creating games for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

Brian Appell states: "I look forward to being a part of the Brisio team and working with them to maximize the value of their existing mobile app portfolio and to generate ideas to help grow their stable of apps".

Paul Andreola, CEO of the Company, states: "In the last 90 days, since changing our name to Brisio Innovations Inc. and launching our new business plan focused on mobile app acquisition and acceleration, the Company has successfully listed on the tech-friendly Canadian Securities Exchange, completed 43 mobile app acquisitions, increased its overall install base from 0 to almost 1.3 million and increased its combined daily downloads from 0 to over 100,000. We have also entered into a letter of intent to acquire an interest in the largest independent app store in Canada, which, if completed, will allow us to increase exposure to our growing portfolio of apps and help gain exposure for the thousands of software developers trying to gain attention for their apps in a very competitive marketplace. We feel these developments will put us in the remarkable position for a new junior tech company of being a cash flow positive business in the very near future".

"In all respects, we are ahead of our own aggressive schedule of developing new value for our shareholders. With industry statistics based on the recent acquisition of WhatsApp by Facebook and the IPO of King Digital valuing each at over $40(2) and over $60(3) per user respectively, the install base of over 1 Million users of Spermy's Journey adds substantial value to the Company. Many of the major app markets, such as North America and Asia, remain virtually untapped and should be very strong prospects for future growth of the Spermy's Journey game and franchise".

The additional value to the Company of being able to cross market the other apps in our portfolio to the over 1 million active users of Spermy's Journey make this latest acquisition invaluable to our future growth and success".

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours.

As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
