Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – May 11th, 2020 – In response to more politicians demanding increased testing and recent comments from Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York stating, “The more testing, the more open the economy”, Blackhawk Growth Corp. (CSE:BLR) (CNSX:BLR.CN) (Frankfurt:0JJ) (OTC:BLRZF) (the “Corporation” or “Blackhawk“), is pleased to announce that it has signed a non-exclusive distribution agreement with a private arms-length California-based entity to distribute Innovita’s 2019-nCoV Ab testing kits used in the detection of antibodies associated with COVID-19. The distributor will be responsible for their own costs associated with the distribution of the test kits to healthcare clinics, government organizations, pharmacies and retailers in the US, and all profits will be divided evenly between Blackhawk and the distributor.
“As United States President Donald Trump looks to reopen the economy, it will be imperative that everyone going back to work gets tested” said Frederick Pels, CEO of Blackhawk. “The goal of this distribution agreement is to give Blackhawk an American influence and point of contact, further proving to the country that we’re able to deliver these kits within days rather than weeks or months. Public health experts have continually stated that widespread testing is crucial to the state’s efforts to accurately assess how many people are affected and where the virus is spreading. Getting these test kits directly to the source as quickly as possible is on every public official’s mind and we are here to prove that we can deliver and do our part to help get the economy back on track. The more exposure we’re able to get with various healthcare clinics, large corporations, nursing homes and everywhere else where employee testing is prevalent, should bode well for our test kits and our shareholders. These kits need to be in the hands of more organizations and this agreement adds yet another voice in the fight against COVID-19.”
“Delivering these kits and putting them in the hands of citizens and various levels of government is the exact market we’re targeting” continued Mr. Pels. “Having a distributor out there allows us to open new avenues and increases the exposure we need to land and close much larger orders.”
