Alkaline Water Co. Announces LOI to Purchase Bottling Plant -- Today's Con-Call Aims to Provide Market Perspective

North Carolina Acquisition Sets Stage to Meet Production for a Growing Marketplace

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2013) - The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (OTCBB: WTER) ("Alkaline" or the "Company"), developers of an innovative, state of the art, proprietary electrolysis beverage process, packaged and sold as a premier alkaline drinking water for balanced lifestyles, is pleased to announce that a letter of intent has been executed regarding the purchase of the North Cove Bottling Plant in Marion, North Carolina.

The acquisition of the North Cove Bottling Plant is expected to provide the Company with a calculated logistical advantage given the plant's strategic location and production capacity. North Cove Bottling Plant was built in the mid-1990s and designed for high speed manufacturing, serving customers such as Wal-Mart, Costco and Target across the Eastern United States. The plant sits on 5.4 acres of land with a virtually unlimited supply of spring water. Its two high-speed lines can produce an impressive 150 bottles per minute of the Company's 3-liter and 1 gallon products, and over 600 bottles per minute of the smaller PET water products.

Steven Nickolas, President of The Alkaline Water Company comments, "The acquisition of the North Cove Bottling Plant is a very strategic purchase which will allow the Company to meet the interest and potential for growth our products are receiving in the Eastern United States. The plant should allow us to expand nationally at a much quicker pace than we had previously anticipated. When running at full capacity, the plant could produce over 180,000 gallons of alkaline water per day."

The North Cove Bottling Plant is located near major interstate freeway connections and is also within a redevelopment zone. The Company hopes to employ between 15-20 employees over the next several months at the facility, which should prove beneficial to the economy in and around the city of Marion. The Company currently projects that production at the plant could begin as early as the fourth quarter of 2013.
