FBC Holding & HandTrux, LLC Ramp Up Partnership Discussions

Expansion Into DRTV Toy Category Imminent With HandTrux Toys

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- 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's partnership negotiations with toy designer and manufacturer, HandTrux, LLC., have ramped up as the two companies explore a market expansion of the popular and versatile toy line, HandTrux (http://www.handtruxtoys.com/).

In a previous release, Frank Russo, Chief Executive Officer of FBC Holding, Inc., noted that what originally caught his interest in HandTrux toys was an episode of The Weather Channel's Reality TV show "Prospectors." It was in this unsolicited televised display, the children's toy -- simple in design, use and function -- was actually used for mining. With FBC having launched an initiative to enter into the DRTV toy category, management focused on toys that were simple, novel and economical with proven sales history, prompting Mr. Russo to say, "We just had to jump at the opportunity to bring this product [HandTrux] to FBC Interactive's DRTV market."

Ongoing discussions between FBC Holding and HandTrux, LLC revealed certain opportunities to grow the business of both companies while increasing the marketability and overall sales of the HandTrux line of toys. With the success of HandTrux's Backhoe sales, along with its current purchase orders, HandTrux, LLC has already secured a number of manufacturing and distribution deals; lending to FBC's overall interest in the toy manufacturer. FBC is confident that DRTV's toy category can be leveraged to greatly enhance the overall sales and marketability of HandTrux to deliver additional income to FBC Interactive's current and continuously increasing revenue stream.

Executives have completed a series of discussions which FBC's management believes will likely result in a rapid and lucrative expansion to benefit both companies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
