DTLL, Inc. Closes On Acquisition

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DTLL, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: DTLI) and GelStat Corporation (BULLETIN BOARD: GSAC) today announced that DTLL has closed on its acquisition of GS Pharma assets, including an exclusive license to develop and commercialize prescription drug applications for certain compounds discovered and developed by GelStat.

GelStat Corporation received 12.5 million shares of DTLL in the transaction, presently valued at nearly $35 million, and now holds an approximate 94 percent ownership interest in DTLL.

"We are pleased with the opportunity this acquisition brings to shareholders of DTLL," said the company's outgoing CEO. "With a lead compound that has demonstrated significant early potential for a number of applications, the resources necessary to carry on development work and a proven management team, including several with a history of having run successful drug development programs, we believe DTLL is well positioned to succeed in the pharmaceutical industry."

"In addition to GelStat's successful development of an effective migraine treatment, we believe our discoveries hold potential for application in other major disease states where significant unmet needs remain, especially those where inflammation plays a central role," said Stephen Roberts, M.D., incoming president and chief executive of DTLL. "As a dedicated pharmaceutical company, DTLL is better able to maximize shareholder value by providing the focus and the resources necessary to execute on the unique challenges and opportunities of the industry."

DTLL expects shortly to change its name to GS Pharma and will apply for a new trading symbol immediately thereafter.
