ALMERE, The Netherlands, April 19, 2010 - Libersy, a Dutch booking software company, is pleased to announce that it
has finalized its next round of investment with HenQ Invest, a venture
capital firm with a focus on high-growth software companies, and a group of
existing shareholders.

Libersy enables online directory services to provide their listed
customers with a flexible, web-based bookings solution. Libersy offers online
yellow pages an easy to implement 'Click-to-Book' concept which can be
"skinned" to match any brand. Libersy targets small businesses such as hair
dressers, physiotherapists, restaurants, bed & breakfasts or tennis courts.
Their customers will be able to click on the 'book now' button on the
business' existing website or in a directory and make an appointment online
based on real time availabilities. At last, these businesses can market their
services on the Internet, be available for bookings 24/7 and accept online
payments from their customers.

The company was founded in 2006 by entrepreneur Karin Loeffen, who
envisioned the growing need for online booking of services as a pivotal next
step in the development of the internet. Libersy has launched its service
through British Telecom in the UK under, in BT's SMB
community, BTTradespace, and as the bookings solution for BT's webhosting
products through Libersy partnered with Paypal to integrate
e-commerce and launched last year in the Netherlands with ilocal, now taken
over by Tomtom. Over 18,000 companies are now bookable through Libersys
booking platform. Other partners are Amdocs, Stageplaza and Libersy is one of the first to market in offering
'time-based' local search on services and is now preparing rolling out
internationally with several directory services and Telco's.

Herman Hintzen, founder of HENQ Invest, said: "Libersy targets the yet
uncovered market of e-commerce of service providers in a time where consumers
are ready for online booking and payment. Three forces drive Libersy's
business model: online users, who demand more booking possibilities via the
web; service providers, who want a more efficient booking management system;
and directory services companies, whose challenge is delivering more revenue
and services per provider. Founder Karin Loeffen is very much driven to
unlock and enable this relatively new market which will grow rapidly in the
next few years. We are very confident that Libersy will be the main global
player in this field."
