Bergio Announces Positive Updates

FAIRFIELD, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2013) - Bergio International, Inc. (OTCQB: BRGO) ("Bergio" or the "Company") makes an announcement regarding success at the JCK Las Vegas trade show, positive statistics through Google Trends, and other updates.

Bergio had a very successful week at the JCK Las Vegas Jewelry Show 2013. The new Faccia a Faccia collection was officially launched and very well received, making it one of Bergio's most successful launches in history. Berge Abajian, CEO of Bergio Int'l, said, "The collection was quite popular among shoppers, and the most unique at the show. It was also favored by many retailers around the country who chose to carry it in their stores, along with the Sistina collection which shared similar praise." He added, "We were approached by one of the largest wholesalers in the country which services over 8,000 stores in the United States and we are currently in the process of making preliminary negotiations in order to grant them exclusive distribution rights of the Faccia a Faccia collection, with meetings set for the upcoming month."

According to Google Trends, Bergio was ranked #5 on a list of most searched jewelry brands in the United States last year. Berge Abajian, CEO of Bergio Int'l, said, "This is very exciting for Bergio, as it shows our efforts in marketing and design have put us at the forefront of the luxury and fashion markets."

He continued, "Our meeting with ShopHQ went very well, they chose new styles for the upcoming broadcast scheduled for the fourth quarter, the date of which is yet to be determined. A behind the scenes photo of the broadcast's filming process while at the Las Vegas show was recently posted on our Facebook page, with Heather Hall, a well-known ShopHQ host."

When asked about future strategies, Berge Abajian spoke, "Our expansion in Moscow, Russia is ongoing. We just expanded into three new locations in partnership with Consul as well as looking toward other opportunities to expand further within the Russian market, moving toward a goal of being sold in 30 stores throughout Russia by the end of the year. At this time I would like to announce that we are still selling with the original 32 Ultra/Kay locations, although I cannot disclose information regarding the Kay/Ultra expansion with Bergio, until their internal housekeeping has been put into order. I have also instructed our marketing and design director to begin the process of expanding with web giant Amazon.com in order to access farther reach and visibility for the brand, while improving sales toward their target demographic."

When asked about the credit line and stocks, Berge Abajian spoke, "At this time I cannot report on the current status concerning the credit line, as ongoing negotiations are in the final stages, but more information will be available once everything is ready. We are working with several different banking institutions in order to find the most favorable deal for Bergio, and once the credit line has been established we will allocate part of it to identify acquisition targets to proceed toward. I know all shareholders are curious about our chill status with the DTCC and would like to inform them that we are in direct communication with the DTCC, with the opinion looked to be filed within the next couple of weeks. We are very aware of the situation and our attorneys are on the task, and have been paid a full retainer in advance to make this matter their top priority. I would like to remind all shareholders that our chill status only effects share issuance, while trading remains unaffected."
