DC Brands International Announces: Turning the Corner?

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - October 19, 2009) - Today the company DC Brands International, a publicly traded company under the ticker symbol (PINKSHEETS: DCBR), is extremely proud to announce that they have received a total of more than $320,000 in purchase orders in a single day, by far the company's best order to date. The company's CEO, Richard Pearce, said, "I am so proud of the entire team; I have never been associated with such a great, hard working group of people. We have all worked so hard to make this come true for ourselves and all of our shareholders. I know it's hard for those who don't see what we are doing day in and day out, but the results are now coming in and they look pretty phenomenal. I know that with the R&D behind us and sales escalating week after week we can now shift our attention to finalizing the audit, priority #1. The accountants are in the offices right next to mine working hard every day and we are investing very heavily into getting this part done this month and starting the field audit next month.

"Due to limitations and contractual agreements we have signed with our accounting team, we cannot release any full financial information until the audit is 100% complete which is just weeks away from moving into the field audit stage and then to the legal team for filing the form 10. In the mean time, in the spirit of trying to become fully transparent, we can post actual sales data and have chosen to do so with respect to just sales from our distributor DPI for our largest customer King Soopers. Again, we must keep confidential information private with respect to case counts and cost as this is negotiated from account to account based on volumes etc. Nonetheless we have posted actual copies of all of the purchase orders online at our website for the perusal of our shareholders. It is our sincerest hope that they can see we are without doubt moving in the right direction. We have several more exciting releases coming soon. In the meantime, we invite all of our shareholders to go to our web site and click on the link called 'View Sales Information' which is located just under the King Soopers & City Market logos on the main page to view the current and past orders. We thank all of you for your tremendous support and for all of the wonderful supportive calls and comments so many of you have provided."
