World Moto, Inc.: Management Provides Investor Update

BANGKOK, THAILAND -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/13 -- World Moto, Inc. (OTCBB: FARE) (OTCQB: FARE) ("World Moto" or the "Company"), due to recent volatility in the Company's stock, management would like to take this opportunity to provide its valued shareholders with an update on its corporate developments. 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 Moto-Meter, the world's first motorcycle taxi meter.

Management maintains that despite the current trend in the stock price the company is moving forward on its aggressive business plan of developing the Moto-Meter market in its target areas of SE Asia, Africa, and Latin America, which equates to hundreds of millions of dollars in potential revenue for World Moto. The Company announced that on January 11th it closed a private placement for $1 million at 27 cents, and although the company has more interested investors these funds would be sufficient to execute the business plan through to production and revenue. Also, the Company is moving into the national phase of its patent prosecution in over 50 countries. This will cement the Company's dominance in these highly lucrative areas.

In December, World Moto chose its manufacturing partner and is ordering the molds for the outer casing of the Moto-Meter product. Management expects that volume production will begin within six months and thus allow fulfillment of the existing order backlog. Simultaneously, work has begun on implementation of Yes and final stage development of Circulars. The Company anticipates generating revenue with these offerings within four to five months. Discussions with distributors in multiple countries are presently underway.

Concurrently, World Moto is applying for privileged status with the Thailand Board of Investment (BOI) and expects to receive a 12 year tax holiday consisting of no income taxes for the first eight years and a 50% reduction for the remaining four.

Company CEO Paul Giles stated, "World Moto is committed to the successful launch of its technologies and is confident that continued progress toward profitability will be rewarded by the market with higher stock prices. We thank all of our valued shareholders for voicing their comments and concerns and we will work tirelessly on their behalf."

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
