TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - February 13, 2009) - In a time of greatly reduced M&A activity, it is with great pleasure and anticipation that Anything Brands Online, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ANYT) announced earlier that its Anything Trucker Division ( has signed a Letter Of Intent to purchase the Carrier Management Division of of Overland Park, KS. This acquisition will result in increased revenues of approximately $30 million of transportation under management from myFreightWorld for 2008, with projected revenues to be approximately $50,000,000 for 2009.

The mFW Carrier Management Division is a natural fit to the already existing suite of Anything Brands products and services because it provides back office support to customers who have access to this technology through an extensive network of transportation intermediaries throughout North America. Unrivaled flexibility allows mFW to fit into nearly any aspect of the transportation industry. mFW also provides private labeling options to their partners which reach a potential 40,000 customers.

Jean Morgan, President of Anything Brands Online, states, "It has been a long and winding road, but we keep on Truckin' down the road of expansion, and, this acquisition places our Anything Trucker Division strategically within the $165 billion transportation industry. I believe this acquisition demonstrates our level of commitment to our Shareholders and our goal of expansion."

Tim Norton, President of the Anything Trucker Division, stated: "In my thirty five years in the industry, I have never seen a more impressive piece of technology. I firmly believe the availability of this core technology will give us limitless possibilities for growth. We are absolutely thrilled to be entering into this agreement which will allow mFW to operate as a standalone business. They will work with us on project development while continuing to develop their own business model which will ultimately impact ANYT with increased revenues and profits."

myFreightWorld was founded in 1998 and has been led since 2003 by J. Michael Head, President. Prior to leading mFW, Mr. Head co-founded MNX Corp and built it to $150 million in annual revenues after taking the company public. After the public offering, under Head's leadership, MNX acquired a small start-up logistics company by the name of Mark VII. Mark VII grew to $750 million in annual revenues before merging with an international logistics company. Mr. Head has a track record of success in the transportation industry and is poised to lead the Carrier Management Division into the future.

J. Michael Head, President and CEO of myFreightWorld, commented: "It quickly became apparent in our initial discussions with ANYT; their vision for the future was the perfect fit for our organization. We believe the two companies share a common heritage of valuing tradition and integrity, building business on the foundation of lasting relationships and honest customer service. ANYT and mFW are a great fit and the mutually beneficial results of this union will show in our quarterly reports."
