Eccotopia Issued ISIN and CUSIP

The ISIN number (International Securities Identification Number) applied for by Eccotopia has been issued. Eccotopia also was issued a CUSIP (Committee on Uniform Security Identification Procedures) number.

Cape Town, South Africa, January 17, 2013 --( Julian Moses, President of Symphony Trade and Investment 57 (PTY) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eccotopia Ltd., , announced today that the ISIN number (International Securities Identification Number) that was applied for by Eccotopia has been issued. Eccotopia (http://www.eccotopia.comFfor) also was issued a CUSIP number. The ISIN number is VGG292031090 and the CUSIP number is G29203109.

An International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) uniquely identifies a security. Its structure is defined in ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 6166. Securities for which ISIN’s are issued include bonds, commercial paper, equities and warrants. The ISIN code is a 12-character alpha-numerical code that does not contain information characterizing financial instruments but serves for uniform identification of a security at trading and settlement.

Securities to which ISIN’s can be issued include debt securities, shares, options, derivatives and futures. The ISIN identifies the security, not the exchange (if any) on which it trades; it is not a ticker symbol. For instance, Daimler AG stock trades through almost 30 trading platforms and exchanges worldwide ( ), and is priced in five different currencies; it has the same ISIN on each, though not the same ticker symbol. ISIN cannot specify a particular trading location in this case, and another identifier, typically MIC (Market Identification Code) or the three-letter exchange code, will have to be specified in addition to the ISIN. The Currency of the trade will also be required to uniquely identify the instrument using this method.

A CUSIP is a 9-character alphanumeric code which identifies a North American financial security for the purposes of facilitating clearing and settlement of trades. The CUSIP distribution system is owned by the American Bankers Association, and is operated by Standard & Poor's. The CUSIP Service Bureau acts as the National numbering agency (NNA) for North America, and the CUSIP serves as the National Securities Identification Number for products issued from both the United States and Canada.
