Grid Petroleum Corp. (OTC PINK: GRPR): Announces Asset Purchase Agreement for Digital Media and Augmented-Virtual Reality Devices Technology

BUFFALO, WY--(Marketwired - Mar 15, 2016) - Grid Petroleum Corp. (OTC PINK: GRPR): Grid Petroleum Corp. has recently appointed Robert Stillwaugh as its new Chairman, Gary Tilden as Chief Executive Officer and Mike Schatz as Chief Operations Officer as a part of acquiring the assets of RJM and Associates LLC, and pursuant to the Form 8-K filed on March 10, 2016. RJM and Associates, LLC has developed, manufactures, markets and owns proprietary advanced broadcast equipment and software and sells this audio and video broadcast equipment worldwide. These systems have been sold worldwide over the past 15 years including some of the major world dominant broadcast companies such as CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, ABC and DirecTV. 

Mr. Gary Tilden, CEO stated, "In addition to our existing business and revenue from broadcast equipment sales, the Company, respectively, owns R&D digital media/augmented reality products currently in development to develop a strategic technology roadmap which will enable the company to expand into high-growth digital television and over-the-top (OTT) markets. These products are being developed to serve a market segment that is presently being strongly embraced by consumers and is forecasted, by some of the most widely recognized tech companies in the world, as becoming a multi-billion dollar market in the very near future. The new products include 'SocialCast AR,' Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality Content Server. The target technologies include Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Audio/Video Codecs, Audio Content Recognition, and OTT API Integration into Key Platforms. The Market Analysis and IP Portfolio will include new patents specifically developed for these products and owned by the Company.

"Upcoming augmented reality devices which combine virtual objects with the real world through high-tech glasses, are forecast to become a $120 billion business by 2020 according to a new report from Digi-Capital. That's four times more than the $30 billion business virtual reality will generate in the same five year span. The good news for our shareholders and investors is that statistics indicate both the AR and VR markets will become mainstream by 2020. In today's $88.4 billion global video game landscape, the PC, console, and mobile industries all thrive. And AR and VR hardware, games and apps are poised to become part of this growing ecosystem in the coming years. Our company, and our strong established relationships in the industry, will be a major competitor in this new industry. These relationships will ensure rapid and extensive distribution and utilization for our products. As a part of our successful growth we will need to restructure the shares of GRPR while we change our corporate name to 'Simlatus Corporation.' 

"This has been a very smooth transition with the previous management of GRPR, and the company understands the value of this transaction for their shareholders and future shareholders, as it brings real equity to all of our shareholders while allowing the previous Oil & Gas assets to be transferred without penalty or loss. Our new management team brings both strength and experience to our company as we look forward to building a successful business with our shareholders."

The company has filed Form 8-K on March 10, 2016. Please refer to this information statement regarding these changes, new management background and material events.
