CLEARWATER, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 -- In connection with Discount Coupons Corp's (the "Company") (OTCBB: DCOU) (OTCQB: DCOU) plan to become a major player in the Daily Deal industry by consolidating with other Daily Deal industry players, on October 1, 2013 the Company acquired Daily Deal Builder ("DDB"), a Daily Deal software and solutions provider.
DDB provides a robust Daily Deal software platform that allows anyone to set up, manage and host a feature-rich Daily Deal or coupon website. Founded by brothers Marc and Tyler Horne in 2008, DDB has grown to become a global leader in daily deal software. Currently over 150 companies in the US and abroad utilize DDB as their Daily Deal software provider. Both Marc and Tyler Horne have remained with DDB and are a part of the Company's growing staff.
Pat Martin, the Company's CEO, stated: "The acquisition of DDB is further validation that our team is committed to building a world class Daily Deal organization. We could not be more pleased to have Marc and Tyler join the Company. We expect to see DDB continue to grow as companies realize the opportunity of starting their own Daily Deal business. DDB's software is ideal for anyone who wants a robust Daily Deal site without a large investment in custom software development. Additionally, DDB also brings the Company expertise in web technologies, further strengthening our identity as a progressive ad tech company."
"The opportunity to grow DDB and to be a part of Discount Coupons made our decision to join the Company an easy one," says Tyler Horne. "We were inspired by the Company's plan to become a global Daily Deal leader through the acquisition of strong Daily Deal brands like DDB. My brother Marc and I are ardent supporters of the business opportunity that the Daily Deal industry can offer entrepreneurs, so we are proud to continue expanding DDB to suit the changing needs of the marketplace."
