Digital Development Partners Acquires Black Bird Potentials Inc.

January 2, 2020 GMT

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., Jan. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Development Partners, Inc. (OTC PINK: DGDM) announced today that it completed the acquisition of Black Bird Potentials Inc., a Montana-licensed industrial hemp grower and a manufacturer and distributor of Zero-THC CBD products under its Grizzly Creek Naturals™ label. The company has adopted the business plan of Black Bird and the company’s ongoing operations are now those of Black Bird. The acquisition of Black Bird was made solely with shares of DGDM stock.

In conjunction with the acquisition, Black Bird’s management took ownership control of DGDM and now controls DGDM’s Board of Directors. However, Jack Jie Qin remains as a Director of DGDM, with William E. Sluss joining the Board of Directors and continuing to serve as DGDM’s Chief Financial Officer.

DGDM’s new President, Fabian G. Deneault, commented, “the entire Black Bird team, which includes our incredibly supportive shareholders, is excited about the opportunity to bring our business vision to the public realm. And we believe the synergy achieved with the continued involvement of Jack and Bill as integral parts of the Black Bird team will yield dynamic results for all of our shareholders.” Continuing, Mr. Deneault stated, “on the business side, we produce only zero-THC CBD products, which we sell through distributors, to retailers and through our website: GrizzlyCreekNaturals.com. We believe sales of our company-produced Grizzly Creek Naturals CBD products will continue its steady expansion during 2020. In addition, 2020 will see us expand our Montana-licensed industrial hemp production and, once EPA-certification is obtained, begin sales of our exciting plant-based biopesticide product, MiteXstream™.”
