World Moto Inc. Signs Multiple Letters of Intent for Distribution of Moto-Meter

BANGKOK, THAILAND--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2013) - World Moto, Inc. (OTCBB: FARE) (OTCQB: FARE) (BERLIN: WM7) (BERLIN: A1J8SY) ("World Moto" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed multiple letters of intent for the distribution of its flagship product, the Moto-Meter, in countries that present a potential market of well above $200 million on meter sales alone. Changing the way the world goes around, World Moto is a global authority on the $500 billion dollar a year motorcycle taxi industry and inventor of the Wheelies and the Moto-Meter, the world's first motorcycle taxi meter.

The Company has recently opened enrollments in its global distributor and partnership programs as part of its drive to ramp up sales in the first half of 2014. To date, it has signed letters of intent with qualified distributors in 7 countries that represent a combined market of more than $200 million dollars. The distributors were selected for their ability to both sell and support World Moto's products as well as to protect its brand image in strategic markets. The Company is in continuing discussions with dozens of further prominent distributors out of the hundreds of retail agents and operators that have contacted World Moto expressing interest in the Moto-Meter and associated products. The letters of intent include the authorization to sell and support World Moto's flagship product, the Moto-Meter, as well as establish priority for Wheelies and future products and services of World Moto.

In signing these letters of intent, World Moto marks another key point in its efforts to build a distribution network that spans the globe. The Company continues to receive inquiries from interested parties and operators within the sector, and is making rapid progress toward its goal of establishing itself as the only universally recognized brand in an industry with revenues approaching .7% of the global GDP and exceeding worldwide spending on advertising.

Having successfully engaged in this first step in establishing global distribution facilities, World Moto believes that it has positioned itself to capture a significant portion of the market it founded, namely the motorcycle taximeter market. Note that the World Bank estimates that the numbers of motorcycle taxis will increase by more than 50% over the next 5 years. Also note that saturation of the Moto-Meter is projected to reach 100% within three years of introduction in any given market and that its life expectancy/repurchase cycle is estimated at three years.

World Moto CEO Paul Giles stated, "The journey to profitable capitalization of this immense global market begins by establishing the distribution chains that will take us there. It's worth repeating that distributors are a long term investment in human capital that will help promote World Moto's vision on a neighborhood to neighborhood level. It's more than having a representative in one region -- it's having dedicated, full-time entrepreneurs on a grassroots level to grow the business and build relationships locally. It gives us a permanent, growing presence in these communities."
