BOCA RATON, Fla., March 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DNA Brands, Inc., (OTCBB:DNAX) ( www.dnabrandsusa.com ) , the makers of DNA Energy Drink®, the award-winning, best-tasting energy drink at the 2010 World Beverage Competition, DNA Beef Jerky™ and DNA Shred Stix™, has selected Equinox Securities, Inc. to facilitate the capital required to fund its expansion.  

DNA Brands, Inc., a proud sponsor of many action sport teams consisting of top athletes from Motorcross, Surf, Wakeboarding and Skateboarding has received TV and media coverage resulting in product placement at Walgreens, CVS, Race Trac and Circle-K throughout Florida. DNA was also selected as the preferred energy drink and meat snack by Anheuser Busch's Strategic Business Alliance (SBA) covering Florida.  

"We have selected Equinox to help fund the next phase of our expansion because of its professionalism, track record with companies at our stage of development, superior work ethic and its dedication to finding the most favorable terms for its clients,"  states Darren Marks, President & CEO of DNA Brands. Marks added, "We are now achieving sufficient growth and have added enough PODS (points-of-distribution) to implement the advertising phase of our business plan, which includes the use of cable television, radio and print to a lesser degree.  This funding initiative, when completed, will allow us to accomplish our goals for 2011 and beyond."
