One World Holdings Receives $500K Investment From Private Equity Firm

Use of Proceeds Will Be to Acquire Inventory for Fulfillment of Big-Box Retail Orders From Toy Fair 2014, Expansion of Online Social Media Branding and Debt Reduction

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 21, 2014) - ONE WORLD HOLDINGS, INC. -- The One World Doll Project, a subsidiary of One World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OWOO) today announced that it has entered into an agreement pursuant to which a Santa Fe, New Mexico private equity group will invest $500,000 into the company.

"Today's announcement represents a significant vote of confidence in The One World Doll Project by this group of preeminent, long-term investors," said Joanne Melton, One World CEO. "This financing has provided an immediate cash injection on terms more favorable to One World Holdings, thus allowing for systematic reduction and elimination of existing convertible note financing that, upon conversion, could have resulted in the influx of millions of shares into the market," she added.

"One World recently presented at the International Toy Fair in New York City and has secured a retail distribution deal with a multi-billion dollar retail chain with stores in the United States and Mexico. We are now finalizing orders with other big-box and online retailers that we met with at Toy Fair 2014 and are preparing for the rollout of three new Prettie Girls! dolls to hit retail shelves and online distributors in time for the Christmas 2014 buying season," commented Trent T. Daniel, Founder of The One World Doll Project. "This $500,000 infusion of capital is a direct result of the performance of One World at Toy Fair 2014 and the rapidly expanding media coverage and online popularity of the Prettie Girls! brand," he added.
