Jun 25, 2008, 01:00 ET from ZIM CORPORATION

    OTTAWA, June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - ZIM Corporation (OTCBB:
 ZIMCF), a provider of software products and services for the database,
 mobile and IPTV markets; today announced its results for the fiscal year
 ended March 31, 2008. All figures presented are calculated in accordance
 with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States
 and presented in US dollars.
     Revenue for the year ended March 31, 2007 was $2,068,065, a decrease
 from $2,195,184 in the prior year. As previously announced, ZIM's decrease
 in revenue is primarily attributable to the decline in revenue from our SMS
 aggregation services as a result of management's decision to no longer
 focus on this market.
     Net income for the year ended March 31, 2008 was $82,536 or a basic and
 diluted income per share of $0.001. The net loss for the year ended March
 31, 2006 was $1,936,187 or a basic and diluted loss per share of $0.02. The
 increase in net income for the year ended March 31, 2008 was attributable
 to a decrease in costs of revenue relating to the decrease in revenues
 associated with SMS aggregation, no further amortization of intangible
 assets related to the acquisition of AIS (which were fully amortized in
 2007) and reduced operating costs
     ZIM had cash of $299,943 at March 31, 2008, as compared to a cash
 balance of $441,637 at March 31, 2007 with no other outstanding debt.
     "I'm pleased with the progress that we made in fiscal 2008" said Dr.
 Michael Cowpland, President and CEO of ZIM. "Our operational improvements,
 expense reductions and focus on higher margin business segments are
 definitely reflected in our year end results and should continue to benefit
 the company going forward. ZIM is continuing its pursuit of opportunities
 related to our ZIM Integrated Development Environment (IDE) software,
 Internet TV and Mobile Content and Applications platforms".
