FONU2 Inc Announces Investment Banking Agreements for $20,000,000 in Acquisition Financing and $30,000,000 in a Firm Commitment Public Offering

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2014) - FONU2 (OTCBB: FONU) (OTCQB: FONU) announced today that it has signed two investment banking agreements with a leading New York-based investment banking firm to assist in sourcing capital. The investment banking firm was founded in 1925, is one of the oldest in the United States, a member of the New York Stock Exchange and a full-service broker-dealer employing over 500 people. The firm manages two Morningstar-rated funds with over $2.8 Billion of retail accounts, nearly 100 registered representatives and 20 investment advisors in six offices.

Under the first agreement, FONU2 has retained the investment banking firm as its exclusive financial advisor in connection with acquisition financing of up to $20,000,000 in debt. The acquisition specifically targets several organizations that offer strategic value to the continued development and marketing of FONU2's social commerce platform. Specific terms and conditions must be met, which the Company believes are reasonable and attainable.

The second agreement anticipates a public offering of $30,000,000 on a firm commitment basis. The planned public offering is subject to the Company's successful acquisition(s) of a suitable organization.

The Company's CEO, Robert Lees, said, "We are exceedingly pleased to establish this relationship with such a prestigious New York Stock Exchange member firm, which validates our business plan and the value of our social commerce platform. We expect the assistance of this well established investment banker will accelerate our growth. An aggressive acquisition program is already under way, and we are beginning due diligence on several acquisition targets. Our management team believes we can satisfy the conditions in both investment banking agreements."
