FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - Bergio International, Inc. (OTCQB: BRGO) ("Bergio" or the "Company") gives their update on their recent financial activities.
As of recently Bergio retained the services of a private investment banker, Legend Securities Inc., to assist the company in both obtaining a credit line and exposing us to hundreds of lenders. We are seeking to obtain a credit line between the amount of $750,000 to $1 million. Additionally, Columbia bank has gone through the preliminary stages of granting Bergio a credit line and wish to proceed further. Once the paperwork has been signed and finalized, the amount will be disclosed. The company will be filing the needed opinion with the DTCC by May 6th, 2013 in order to release the chill on stock issuance.
Berge Abajian, CEO of Bergio Int'l, states, "We are determined to acquire the credit lines so that we are able to end the dilution, brought upon by small funding with higher discounts. I understand the concerns of our shareholders but it is quite difficult to push to the next level without proper financing. To prepare for the ShopNBC launch, Bergio incurred a large expense related to the design and modification of pieces to fit the ShopNBC demographic. One must also consider the usual quarterly professional fees, in addition to the fees related to the DTCC chill."
He added, "I feel that that the situation is under control. I would like to personally thank our shareholders for their support. Adding new shareholders in the past few months seemed to remedy the situation and keep the stock stable." He also added, "Our shareholders have been doing an incredible job with spreading the news of ShopNBC launch on May 7th, 2013. It looks like it will be successful."
He continues, "Concerning the chill, I would like to inform our shareholders that we were only chilled on stock issuance, not trading. I am looking forward to having the chill lifted one month after filing the opinion. In the next few weeks, we will release our 1Q results. As previously stated, due to the amount of current projects we may have a slow start, but once our plans come together the future looks bright."
