XcelMobility, Inc. Announces $650,000 Capital Raise From Magna Capital Group to Fuel Global Expansion of Its Wearable Computing Platform

Funding Follows Record 2013 Revenue and Launch of Our First Wearable Computing Device

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2014) - XcelMobility, Inc. (OTCQB: XCLL) (OTCBB: XCLL) ("Xcel" or the "Company"), a leading wearable computing device development and marketing company, today announced that it has received $650,000 in funding from Magna Capital Group, Inc. The investment will serve to fuel the Company's accelerated development of its cloud-connected wearable computing solutions and support its expansion into China and other targeted key markets that are rapidly adopting today's most advanced wearable computing technologies. 

In 2013, Xcel successfully established a consortium of China's leading mobile technology players, including MapWorld and China Unicom and launched its first wearable computing device, called the CCWatch™ to the China marketplace. By January 2014, Xcel had expanded its market position and increased demand for its CCWatch™ by incorporating the "Companion Solution", the first "always on" cloud-connected smartwatch system with software applications specifically focused on monitoring loved ones and private/public security forces. Given the continued opportunity to build additional wearable computing technologies utilizing Xcel's established platform of mobile internet products and services and technology partners, the Company will strive to further expand the business in 2014 to build upon the growth achieved in 2013.

Ron Strauss, Executive Chairman of the Board of XcelMobility, Inc., said, "We are in a strong position to build upon the rapid adoption of our CCWatch™ and generate continued revenue growth. We are in the final phases of beta testing of our Companion System by our initial customers and believe, based on their initial satisfaction, these large customers will drive the successful rollout of our wearable solutions to the large security market. We are excited to follow the operational success and record revenues with even stronger results in 2014 as we reach a broader market with our Companion product."

He continued, "Given the growth opportunities that lie ahead, now is an opportune time to complete our capital raise. The funding will allow the company to build our leadership position within the security market with the best wearable computing solutions. We feel we have a winning marketing strategy and our technology cooperation with Map World, China Unicom, and other industry leaders further enables us to deliver the most advanced wearable computing solutions broadly into the security and medical markets."

Shipments of wearable computer devices will reach 19.2 million in 2014, roughly tripling from the previous year, and will climb to nearly 112 million units in 2018, according to the market research organization IDC.
