Cairo Announces Termination of Letter of Intent with Newcastle Minerals and Execution of Share Exchange Agreement to Acquire Shares of Socialitize Limited

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Cairo Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:QAI.P) ("Cairo" or the "Company") announces the following:

Termination of Letter of Intent with Newcastle Minerals Ltd.

Further to a news release of October 22, 2012 and by mutual agreement the Company and Newcastle Minerals Ltd. have terminated their Letter of Intent dated October 17, 2012 with immediate effect and without any future liability.

Acquisition of the Shares of Socialitize Limited

The Company has entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the "Agreement") dated January 14, 2013 with Socialitize Limited ("Socialitize"), a company incorporated under the laws of Gibraltar, and the shareholders of Socialitize (the "Shareholders") whereby the Company will acquire all of the shares of Socialitize. Socialitize is the owner of the 2BET2 sports betting and social gambling business, primarily operated through Facebook, iPhone, Android and other mobile devices.

Acquisition Terms

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Shareholders have agreed to sell, and the Company has agreed to acquire, all the shares in the capital of Socialitize in exchange for 15,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Company (the "Acquisition"). The Company and Socialitize act at arm's length.

The Acquisition will be an Arm's Length Transaction (as such term is defined in the TSX Venture Exchange's policies). None of the insiders of Cairo are insiders of Socialitize or own, directly or indirectly, any of the issued securities of Socialitize. As a result, Cairo is not required under the Exchange's policies to seek shareholder approval of the Acquisition and should therefore be able to expedite the closing.

Conditions Precedent

The parties' obligations to complete the Acquisition are subject to the satisfaction of the usual conditions precedent including:

a.  the Company being satisfied with the results of its due diligence review
    of Socialitize and its business; 

b.  completion by Cairo of a consolidation of its current outstanding
    securities on the basis of one new share in exchange for 1.2 existing
    shares. All references to shares being issued pursuant to the
    Acquisition and private placement are on a post-consolidated basis; 

c.  raising at least C$2,000,000 by way of private placement; 

d.  the cancellation of all 400,000 previously issued stock options; 

e.  the receipt of satisfactory legal opinions concerning corporate matters
    and asset ownership of Socialitize; 

f.  the receipt of all necessary approvals of the TSX Venture Exchange (the
    "Exchange") and all other regulatory authorities and third parties to
    the Acquisition; and 

g.  no material adverse change having occurred in the business, affairs,
    financial condition assets or operations of the Company, Socialitize or
    its business prior to closing. 

Trading in the Company's common shares on the Exchange will remain halted pending completion of the Acquisition and the related transactions.

All common shares of the Company held by Principals (as such term is defined in the Exchange's policies) on the completion of the Acquisition will be escrowed pursuant to the policies of the Exchange, which may include securities they acquire under the Financing (defined below).

Wolverton Securities Ltd. has agreed to act as the Company's sponsor in accordance with the Exchange's policies and will be paid a fee of $40,000 + HST in cash.

Subject to the approval of the Exchange, the Company has agreed to pay a finder's fee of 966,667 common shares to an arm's length party as consideration for introducing Cairo to Socialitize.

Upon completion of the share consolidation, the Acquisition and the Acquisition Financing, the Company will be classified a Tier 2 technology issuer and will have approximately 33,050,000 issued common shares, 6,866,667 share purchase warrants and 3,300,000 new options to be granted on closing of the Acquisition.

Proposed Financing

The Company proposes to complete (conditional upon and concurrently with the completion of the acceptance by the Exchange of the Acquisition) a non-brokered private placement (the "Acquisition Financing") of C$2,000,000 through the issuance of units at a price of C$0.15 per unit. Each unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of C$0.25 for a period of two years. The proceeds of the Acquisition Financing will be allocated toward marketing and revenue generation of Socialitize's business and for general working capital.

Name Change

Immediately prior to the closing of the Acquisition, the directors of Cairo will resolve, pursuant to the powers granted to them under the Company's articles to change the name of the Company to a name related to its new business.

The business currently operated or undertaken by Socialitize is the design, implementation and operation of sports betting as a social gambling game for use through Facebook, known as 2BET2.

Players are monetized through a number of complementary strategies. Players may purchase additional BB$ (in-game currency) when they run low or so that they may bet on more events in larger amounts. Players are also encouraged to purchase features and prestige in the game. Socialitize will also pursue referral revenues (where such activity is legal and in accordance with Facebook terms) whereby players who purchase items or spend money at synergistic websites will generate commission revenues for the company. Socialitize will also seek to generate revenues with new group orientated features such as clubs and tournaments, where individuals will be required to subscribe in order to participate.

2BET2 is also available as a web app on Apple iPhone and Android devices and will be released in more formats over coming months. Mobile apps are a core focus for the company.
