Local Corporation Expands Krillion® Shopping Platform; Reaches Key Data Milestones

IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Local Corporation (NASDAQ: LOCM), a leading online local media company, today announced that it has expanded its patented Krillion local shopping platform and reached key data milestones.

The Krillion local shopping data index, one of the largest and most comprehensive in the industry, now includes approximately 120,000 retail store locations, up 60 percent from 75,000 in October 2013, covering over 4,300 shopping categories, representing millions of localized products. The Krillion platform aggregates dynamic, national and regional retail shopping content, including retail locations, brands, product categories, product images and inventory availability data.

"We're excited to further expand our powerful Krillion platform. By reaching these important milestones, we've significantly increased the breadth and depth of our expansive data index, which provides publishers with more engaging content and consumers with valuable local shopping information via mobile and desktop," said Michael Sawtell, Local Corporation, president and COO. "We look forward to working with additional partners and further growing the distribution of this highly relevant local shopping data to help retailers reach more local consumers nationwide."

The company's recently launched Havvit® mobile app, shopping content solutions for online publishers, and localized content for search engines are just three of the many ways the Krillion data can be distributed via website and apps that local shoppers rely on to get the information they need to make purchasing decisions.


Powered by the Krillion local shopping platform, the Havvit app supports busy, local consumers, enabling them to track savings, compare prices and find products nearby, all from their selected favorite stores and brands. One of the first shopping apps of its kind designed for iOS® 7, the free app makes shopping and product discovery fun and more efficient for the increasing number of consumers using smartphones to shop both at home and on-the-go. Download the iOS 7-compatible Havvit app from iTunes® (http://bit.ly/1d8Y111).
