Cody Ventures Corporation (OTC: CDYV) Pursues Aggressive Texas Expansion, Projected Eventual Revenues of $150,000,000 to Surpass That Obtained by the Rest of Tidbits Publications Nationally

CEDAR HILL, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2005 -- Following the previous announcement that Cody Ventures Corporation (OTC: CDYV), had been appointed Tidbits Master Publisher for the State of Texas, Tarja Mees, CEO further determined today that the projected revenues this expansion alone could bring in during 2005, are in the range of $5,000,000, representing a twenty-five fold increase over last year's revenues of $207,000. This projected increase includes the consolidation of income from its newly acquired subsidiary, Dakota Imaging, Inc. as previously announced, and can be very well expected to eventually exceed $150 million upon the completion of Cody's Texas expansion.

Texas, the second most populous state contains hundreds of financially viable publishing venues within its 3000-plus cities and towns and over 22,000,000 people, providing enormous revenue potential, as previously reported. Mrs. Mees pointed out that when Cody reaches its immediate goal of 5 million copies weekly during its expansion into the rest of Texas, it will have gained a very significant foothold into the national weekly periodical market, currently producing revenues of over $3 billion annually.

Mrs. Mees stated that, "With dedication to staying the course, aggressive but careful planning and proper funding, it is well within Cody's reach to attain a circulation of 5 million weekly copies, with subsequent revenues growing relatively quickly to over $150 million. More news of progress will be released regarding Cody's aggressive ongoing expansion plans and achievements throughout selected cities and regions in Texas, as well expansion into selected national markets.

"Cody's vision encompasses the building of a national advertising, printing, and publishing empire, both wholly owned and with strategic alliances, designed to take advantage of a strong suburban and rural consumer base. Such a nationally structured company, with a potential consumer distribution and business database, will either become a candidate for acquisition by one of the major national newspaper publishers, or could become an acquisition-oriented company itself."
