December 18, 2015 - VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Mobio Technologies Inc. (TSXV: MBO; OTCQX: MBIOF), (“Mobio” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent with respect to the recapitalization of Twenty Year Media Inc. (“Twenty Year Media” or “TYM”).

Concurrently, the management team of Twenty Year Media will acquire approximately 28% of TYM’s issued and outstanding shares from Mobio.
“The recapitalization of Twenty Year Media provides access to the capital necessary for TYM to continue the aggressive development of its business, while giving management an increased level of direct exposure to the success of TYM,” said Michael Edwards, CEO of Mobio. “Both Mobio and TYM are positioned for success as a result of this series of transactions.”
