CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 25, 2017) -  Turbo Global Partners (TURBO) trading as "DIBZ" (OTC PINK: DIBZ), has announced it has executed an option to acquire in whole GP Brands, Inc.

"I am pleased to announce that TURBO has executed an option to acquire GP Brands, Inc., franchisor of the Goin' Postal® pack and ship retail franchises," states Robert Singerman Chairman & CEO of TURBO. He continues, "With their 360-store national franchise network, Goin' Postal® pack and ship retail franchise stores serve the needs of hundreds of communities in the U.S. and this business model generates long-term renewable predictable cash flow, the ideal acquisition for our portfolio. Our option to acquire the company includes all assets such as proprietary point-of sale systems and software, trademarks, licenses, a training university, and a fabrication operation that produces the store components for custom store buildouts. The bottom line is we look forward to completing this tactical acquisition as it will add $2MM to $3MM EBITA to our income statement once the acquisition is completed."
