Republic of Texas Brands Clarifies Symbol Change RTXBQ

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 20, 2014) - Republic of Texas Brands, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RTXBQ) wishes to clarify the symbol change that occurred this morning. The symbol (RTXBQ) was caused by the debtor in possession bankruptcy filing on December 16, 2013. We did this action to protect the shareholders against what we believe fraudulent action by Empire Capital LLC. Empire had caused us to initiate a capital structure change to the company for a services contract that would enable us to fund the acquisition of a highly profitable BarBQ chain in the Dallas area. We plan on moving out of bankruptcy shortly as we are preparing to file the reorganization plan soon.
