For Immediate Release

Waterloo, Ontario, February 4, 2015: SponsorsOne Inc. (CSE: SPO), (“SponsorsOne” or the Company”), the Company that has developed the SponsorsCloudTM platform, is pleased to announce it has entered into a definitive term sheet to acquire 100% of the assets of JWALK NY LLC (“JWALK”), one of the leading full service creative agencies in the USA. JWALK has distinguished itself as a sought-after partner for its nimble and creative solutions to clients’ business problems. JWALK specializes in culturally connecting lifestyle brands with consumers and has an industry focus on retail/fashion, beauty, hospitality, spirits and Consumer Packaged Goods.

“We are very excited about the acquisition of JWALK,” stated Myles Bartholomew, Founder and CEO of SponsorsOne. “The JWALK team has operational management excellence, a host of top 100 brands as clients, full digital creative services, and a proven track record of build- ing a strong agency both organically and through acquisition.”

SponsorsOne now enters the commercialization stage with the execution of its acquisition strategy. Adding talent to the Company from the management team of JWALK will acceler- ate the adoption of the SponsorsCloud using JWALK’s brand relationships to integrate SPO’s social sponsorship technology into existing marketing initiatives. The competitive advantage of social sponsorship blended with the traditional digital marketing approach should deliver a higher ROI for the brands. This technology advantage reshapes the earnings model of a creative agency from a labor based – contract-to-contract model – to a recurring revenue, high earnings model that should improve brand retention year over year. Over its existence, JWALK’s client base has represented some of the top 100 women’s lifestyle brands globally such as Lacoste USA, bebe, bareEscentuals and Gucci, along with clients such as Microsoft, Equinox and Samsung.

“We have consistently focused on delivering a superior ROI to our clients resulting in a steady annual growth rate within our customer base”, stated Doug Jacob, Founder of JWALK. “We believe adding a strategic and proprietary technology to the overall offering will continue to drive higher ROI to our clients and give us a strategic advantage when deal- ing with our brands. As technology has become a part of everyday life, the retail and cus- tomer acquisition environment has become more and more competitive for brands. We feel

SponsorsOne”s technology offers an innovative solution for our brands to interact with their customers through social media on a verifiable basis providing rather than simply advertising to them, giving them with a competitive advantage.”

The JWALK team will lead the build up of the sales and service delivery organization for SponsorsOne and will manage the roll out of the SponsorsCloudTM platform and social spon- sorship product to future and existing clients in 2015. As social sponsorship becomes a larger component of the brand’s overall marketing campaigns, it is anticipated that the earnings of a full service creative agency will increase based on strong recurring revenue. The proposed transaction provides that SponsorsOne will acquire 100% of the assets of JWALK for USD$6 million, in a combination of cash and common shares of the Company .

The acquisition is scheduled to close March 30, 2015 and is subject to financing, regulatory approval, and the completion of due diligence and definitive agreements.

For Immediate Release


Waterloo, Ontario, January 22, 2015: SponsorsOne Inc. (CSE: SPO), (“SponsorsOne” or the “Company”), the social commerce platform that brings elite sponsorship to the masses as a new form of digital marketing and commerce within the social economy, is pleased to provide a corporate update.

“We are transforming the way consumers transact on social media with the brands. For the first time social currency combined with sponsorship discounts will dramatically increase the buying power of every consumer,” states Myles Bartholomew, Founder and CEO of SponsorsOne. “Brands want authentic engagement with scalability, connected to every user on social media. This has not been achievable until the launch of SponsorsCloud.”

Through the automated SponsorsCloud platform users earn compensation for every authentic conversation they have about the brand on existing social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and FourSquare. They get paid sponsorship credits by the brands, which is the new form of currency developed by SponsorsOne. These credits along with sponsorship discounts entitle the users to tremendous purchasing power in the marketplace, allowing them to purchase products and services from the brands they love. This will result in significantly higher return on digital and social media marketing dollars.

The roll out of the SponsorsCloud will start with the acquisition of digital marketing agencies already engaged with the brands to manage their campaigns across all digital media. There are numerous such agencies that have strong established relationships with the top 100 brands in the world. These agencies have continued to deliver the results the brands are looking for year after year, and have built a level of trust when it comes to allocating budgets across digital mediums. It’s this trust that allows the agencies to allocate a portion of the brand’s campaign budget to the roll out of social sponsorship. This strategy creates immediate adoption of the technology.

SponsorsOne generates revenue from: 1. The sales of credits to the Brands at $0.01 per credit sold, 2. The sales of creative and project management services, 3. The sale of sponsorship management services and, 4. The sale of big data analytics to the brands. The credits and the Data Analytics generate 98% margin whereas the creative services and sponsorship management generates 25-50% margin. The revenue mix will depend on the campaign strategy required to maximize ROI for the Brands.

SponsorsOne’s technology combined with the agency-brand relationship accelerates the adoption of the social sponsorship model as a new form of digital marketing.

For Immediate Release


Waterloo, Ontario, August 28, 2014: SponsorsOne Inc. (CSE: SPO), (“SponsorsOne” or the “Company”), the social commerce platform that brings elite sponsorship to the masses as a new form of digital marketing and commerce within the social economy, is pleased to provide a corporate update.

“Digital marketing advertising spending will hit $121 billion in 2014, representing 25% of the total global advertising spend,” states Myles Bartholomew, CEO of SponsorsOne Inc. “For 2015, the growth rate in the digital advertising sector will continue to exceed all other forms of advertising with display ads exceeding search advertising for the first time, this is the approach used for social networking and mobile advertising. Total digital advertising is forecasted to hit $140B in 2015, states Zenith Optimedia in a report published April 7, 2014. As growth trends indicate, marketing within the social networks represents the highest growth segment, and is now forecasted to exceed Search Advertising associated with Google’s revenue model. SponsorsOne is positioned to capitalize on the growth by providing the ability to monetize the content created within the social networks using Social Sponsorship.”

The Company has made significant progress in the development of its advanced cloud- based platform that brings elite sponsorship to the masses and will be a marketplace for brands and influencers to conduct social commerce. Social Sponsorship will engage million of users with the brands and generate social income for trading products, services and cash for engaging with brands within the social network. The three main components of SponsorsOne’s platform are social sponsorship, social currency and social commerce – the marketplace to conduct trading:

I. Social Sponsorship: For the first time brands can deliver sponsorship to the masses rather than only to the elite. Sponsorship within social networks is the highest form of engagement capable and acts as a form of employment to get social media users getting real value out of their engagement with Brands. Sponsorship programs are launched by the brands within the SponsorsCloudTM and the user engages by accepting sponsorship from the brands they love. Discount levels are established by each brand and the influencer within the social network will get paid with social currency for engaging with the brands campaigns. Users can receive higher sponsorship support by continually engaging and working with the brand to achieve bigger discounts and higher earning potential.

Status: The core-underlying platform – SponsorsCloud™ – is installed for development, testing, staging and production with test results supporting over 6 million sign ups per minute. The user-facing web and mobile interface is designed and currently being implemented with all server side functionality complete. The brand sponsorship management platform is in alpha test and UX/UI design is underway. The ability to load and launch campaigns within the sponsorship server is tested and live, this will be managed in the early roll out with the support team at SponsorsOne. The first campaigns are scheduled to commerce in the first half of 2015.

II. Social Currency: The social currency is the rewards system used to compensate the influencer in exchange for marketing and promoting the brands in the form of social engagement within their social networks. The more an Influencer engages the more social currency they will earn. The more currency they earn with one or more brand the higher their sponsorship level and the deeper their discounts. This currency and discount can be used to purchase products from any brand participating within the SponsorsOne Social Economy and this currency can be continually traded between the influencer and brand for products, services and cash. The Influencers value to each brand is evaluated and their individual value drives their social capital and the value of their currency for trading within the Social Economy. This is the engine for trading within the social economy, driving social commerce in a scalable way. SponsorsOne is positioned to be the leader is this burgeoning field of commerce.

Status: The social currency engine runs within the SponsorsCloud™ platform and is fully integrated within the social sponsorship framework. The development of the social currency engine has been in direct conjunction with the SponsorsCloudTM platform and social sponsorship framework. It is a core component of the social sponsorship product design from both a backend infrastructure and a frontend UX/UI perspective. The SponsorsCloudTM and associated social sponsorship product components including the social currency engine are in the final stage of development before beta launch. Beta launch and subsequent early versions of the product will include a simplified feature set to introduce the social economy and then functionality will be expanded to achieve the full social economic vision of SponsorsOne.

III. Social Commerce – Marketplace: Social Commerce will take place in the social economy marketplace. This is where Influencers and Brands can leverage their social capital and use their social currency to capitalize on their social worth and extract true value from the social economy. Influencers and brands bring their social capital, which is a measure of their social influence and potential worth, and their social currency to the marketplace seeking social economic opportunities. They can partake in social economic transactions to earn them more social currency, improve their social capital, or use their social currency to extract value from the social economy in the form of products, services, cash, or any other potential value exchange.

Status: The Influencers and the brands within the social economy will drive the social commerce marketplace. As the Influencers and brands engaging in social sponsorship increases and the volume of social sponsorship driven engagements and the flow of social currency increases, the marketplace will naturally expand and scale to meet the needs of the social economy. The beauty of the social sponsorship model and platform is that a marketplace immediately exists upon beta product launch, there can be real value exchange between Influencers and brands immediately, regardless of whether there is a handful of participants or thousands, and the social sponsorship model, platform, and marketplace scales seamlessly as the social economy grows. The marketplace will be simple market for beta launch and then becoming more complex as social commerce supply and demand drive it.

Other Activity Updates

1. Product Development: The SponsorsCloud™ platform and associated applications & products continue to be developed towards commercial readiness and beta launch. The current focus is on refining the product design and user experience, and isolating the beta launch feature sets. SponsorsOne has utilized expert product design consultants to assist with this process. Preparations of the system framework and IT infrastructure continue to be underway in preparation of commercial beta launch.

The Company also continues to perform work on its suite of patents around its technology.

2. Beta Clients and Launch: The Company is continuing to develop market relationships in order to connect with brands, professional influencers, and existing social networks. The Company has established strong connections in the advertising market verticals of Fashion, Music, Action-sports & Lifestyle, Entertainment and Digital Marketing, and is continuing to expand its market reach. The Company’s immediate business development focus is on identifying and qualifying brands, influencers, and other partners as potential beta launch partners. Beta launch is scheduled to commence in the first half of 2015.

3. M&A and Partnership activity: The Company’s acquisition strategy is to build a global creative agency that will be the delivery channel for the social sponsorship products and services. An initial pipeline of potential acquisition targets has been established and exploration and discussions with select top prospects have begun. The business development team and advisory team are responsible for advancing the Company’s acquisition pipeline and leading exploration of acquisition prospects.

These teams are also working to build key strategic partnerships to establish channels to access brands, top professional influencers, creative talent, IP, and social networks that can bring a user base and brand base to the SponsorsCloudTM platform.

Waterloo, Ontario / TNW-ACCESSWIRE / July 15, 2014 / SponsorsOne Inc. (SPO – CSE) (“SponsorsOne” or the “Company”), the social commerce platform that brings elite sponsorship to the masses, today announced that it has successfully deployed its auto-scale cloud based technology, the core operational framework for the SponsorsOne system.

SponsorsOne’s system is a proprietary auto-scale framework designed to deliver the lowest latency experience for users and brand managers hungry for analytics. Unlike traditional systems that can take minutes to respond to high-load conditions, the SponsorsOne framework measures both key user experience metrics and analytical computation metrics to scale services up or down in anticipation of real-time changes in demand. SponsorsOne’s social sponsorship and social commerce trading platform is designed to deliver consistent levels of service performance even in the face of extreme data throughput requirements or user load.

The framework manages application servers, a complex distributed data storage, data acquisition API’s linked to large data sources like Twitter and Facebook, distributed fault-tolerant queuing technology and the algorithmic progressing engines that compute a user’s social influence.

Myles Bartholomew, CEO of SponsorsOne commented, “This is an important technical achievement for the Company. It not only establishes the necessary framework to operate and scale our system as effectively as possible, it provides us with a competitive advantage. This achievement demonstrates our commitment to operational excellence and inspires confidence in the robustness, security, and scalability of our system.”

With the auto-scale platform installed in both pre-production and production environments the next major milestone for the company is to move the Social Sponsorship application from the development environment into Alpha test on the pre-production auto-scale platform. This effort commenced in June and is expected to be in full Alpha-Test late July or early August 2014.
