FBC Holding Explores High-Tech Personal Indoor Grow System for Marijuana & Organic Planting; Executes Deal With HY-POD TEK

Manufacture of Compact Grow POD Environments Provides FBC Holding A Complement to its Cannabis Seed Distribution Proposition

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2014) -  FBC Holding, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FBCD) ("FBC" or the "Company") an international product development company primarily focused on license/creation management and product sales/distribution through DRTV, announced that the Company has furthered its new Agricultural Division with the execution of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with HY-POD TEK, Inc.; exploring licensing rights of an automated and integrated personal indoor grow pod system for organic plants and cannabis harvesting. 

"The legalizing of marijuana in Colorado and Washington, along with the decriminalizing of marijuana possession in several states, has given way to a whole host of opportunities," stated Mr. Frank Russo, Chief Executive Officer of FBC Holding, Inc. "The HY-POD actually fits right in with our business model for the Agricultural Division. It demonstrates relevance of use, versatility, multiple application and offers synergy with other contemplated division products -- such as cannabis seeds. Most important, there is an opportunity to align the HY-POD with the Interactive Division's DRTV model; reason simply, you can grow organic fruits and vegetables, etc., right in your basement, garage, backyard or city roof top."

HY-POD TEK, Inc., the maker of the portable indoor growing system, has produced a mobile environment that affords "green thumbs" the ability to grow the very best organic plants, regardless of the crop, by duplicating nature's various climate conditions. Aside from the many incredible features of the HY-POD, one of the most exciting is the HY-POD COMM communication software that allows a grower to remotely control the POD's functions from a mobile device.

Frank Russo continued "We have explored several mobile and personal 'grow environments' over the past few months. However, none of the indoor growing systems reviewed offered an automatic digital controller that gives an individual the ability to monitor and control the growing process -- virtually from anywhere in the world. This gives us reason to strongly believe that the HY-POD could be the next innovation in organic planting and/or the growing of cannabis for personal use."

Mr. Russo concluded, "Whether a 'Doomsday Prepper' or just a health conscious individual wanting to eat organic fruits and veggies, or, a person living in a cannabis tolerant state that wishes to grow and harvest their own strands of marijuana from the comfort of their home -- for medicinal personal use -- the HY-POD seems to be the perfect indoor grow system. The current MOU gives us the opportunity to explore the viability and feasibility in licensing this particular system."

The MOU with HY-POD TEK, Inc., will allow FBC ample time to review and test market the POD, which already has a proven sales record, to determine if HY-POD will become a permanent part of FBC Holding's rapidly growing Agricultural Division.
